Portable Gas Heaters are compact heating units that run on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) or propane. These gas heaterss are a versatile and convenient alternative to natural gas or electricity. They can be moved from room to room or used in your workshop as and when you need them, allowing you to create the space you want without having to use up energy and fuel.
There are a range of types of Portable Gas Heaters available to purchase from Engweld, including butane and LPG gas heaters. These are a great choice for businesses and individuals who need temporary or emergency heating, especially in areas where there is no access to natural gas or electricity.
Depending on the type of heater you buy, they can be either flued or unflued. Fleeced flued heaters should always be installed into a proper insulated chimney flue. Flued heaters are generally safe but should be regularly serviced by a gas fitter.
Non-flued or ventfree heaters can also be purchased, and can be permanently installed or portable. These may also be fitted with a catalytic converter which helps to remove some of the emissions from the gas. However, they can still be dangerous if the appropriate safety procedures are not followed.
As with all gas appliances, portable gas heaters need to be regulated to ensure that they are not producing harmful fumes or carbon monoxide. It is vital that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions and local regulations.
They should be operated only in well ventilated rooms and never used in bedrooms, bathrooms, toilets or saunas. In addition, it is recommended that any flued heaters should be turned off before sleeping to prevent the build up of carbon monoxide.
A good way to avoid this problem is to get the gas fitter to service your gas appliance at least every two years. By doing this you can ensure that the heater is working properly and will be able to keep your home and family warm and comfortable.
Choosing the right portable gas heater is essential to ensure you have the right amount of heat for your needs. A portable gas heater should be selected based on the size of the space you need to heat, your budget and how long you plan to use the heater for.
