Portable Gas Heaters are compact, wood heaters portable heating units that run on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) or propane gas. They are often used to provide temporary heat in places such as workshops and outdoor areas where a natural gas supply or electricity is unavailable.
Portable gas heaters are an ideal alternative to electric heat sources for many reasons. They offer a more flexible heating solution and are often cheaper to buy, run and maintain than electric heat solutions. They also don’t need to be switched on and off during power outages like electric heaters do, meaning they’ll stay in operation longer.
Whether you’re looking for a simple, portable space heater or something more substantial and capable of heating large areas, Engweld has a selection of top-rated portable gas heaters for you to choose from.
Tungsten Smart-Heat Portable
Unlike mushroom or dome style portable patio heaters, the Tungsten Smart-Heat uses an infrared radiant element to radiate its heat deep into your space. This results in a superior performance and a more even heat output than traditional portable heater models.
Tungsten Smart-Heat is designed to work in a wide range of wind speeds, ensuring you always have the right amount of heat for your needs. The burner system and gas injection are fully enclosed in a cover and curved mesh to act as a wind filter. This protects the flame and ensures that you get a constant, consistent flow of heating energy, even in high winds.
The Smart-Heat is also more wind resistant than other portable patio heaters, and it’s rated to work in gusts of up to 7.5mph. This makes it the perfect heater for commercial locations where you need a portable, efficient, yet highly-resistant indoor or outdoor heating solution.
Portable Heater Safety Rules
Gas heaters should be turned off and stored away when not in use, and they should never be placed under a child’s bed or other areas where young children may be. They should also be kept at least a metre away from any flammable materials such as curtains, furniture or windows coverings that could become caught on fire.
Be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions for the correct use of your portable gas heater before you start using it. It is a good idea to have the unit checked by a qualified gas fitter at least once a year, to make sure it’s working safely and not producing any dangerous emissions.
If your portable gas heater has been identified as potentially being unsafe, the gas company can usually help you to have it repaired by a licensed gas fitter. This can prevent your gas heater from being a fire hazard or generating dangerous carbon monoxide.
Keep your gas heater clean and in good condition to avoid carbon monoxide buildup, as well as water vapour. Regularly check the flue for unobstructed venting and clean any debris.
