I would get another quote or two - individual wall heaters, replacing an existing one, commonly in the $500-1000 or a bit more cost installed depending on heater size, whether any opening modifications are needed, etc.

$3600 sounds like full new-install cost for a full furnace or full-house woodstove or gas stove - sounds WAYYYY too high to me for a "small wall heater", which in our area (not a low-cost area but wood and gas stoves are very common) typically runs $2000-3000 range for a brand-new installation of a $35,000-40,000 gas stove or heater, and around $2000 range or even less (depending on ease of running gas and electric to it) for 15,000 BTU direct-vent wall heater.

Heating and A/C would be your normal Search the List category for well-rated and reviewed contractors for this - also Plumbers in some areas for gas heaters, and some Electricians for electric (though since you said vented evidently gas).
