Replacing wall heaters in upstairs bedrooms

We have an old house, built in 1920s, then moved to this location in the 1970s. The upstairs bedrooms are heated with gas wall heaters. They actually do a great job heating the rooms, but have a few minor problems. We asked the HVAC guy who was replacing our downstairs central unit about replacing or fixing them, but he told us they were actually not up to code now.

What options do we have?

Your old heater probably doesn't have an oxygen depletion sensor. Another problem is that some jurisdictions do not allow vent-less gas heaters, you would need to check with you local building department to see if they are allowed.
