Propane Heater Owner Guide

By Bessie Rowe

Keeping your home warm during the cold season can be financially challenging to say the least. It is even possible that there are other areas of your house, which you would love to keep warm when necessary, but cannot afford to do this due to energy bills this will incur. Nevertheless, there are other options and this involves complementing your heating system with a storage heater and a propane heater.

You may actually be wondering what these heaters are. Well a propane heater is a space heater and space heaters are often available as two types: they are the infrared (radiant) type and the circulation type. Okay the propane gas heater is one good example of the radiant type, which functions by heating objects that in turn heat the surrounding air.

Storage heaters however, are electrical home appliances that will store warm energy when it is available at a cheaper rate usually at night and then give out same when this energy is needed during the day. It works by drawing heat energy during off-peak periods and giving this out at peak periods, thereby saving money.

Alright so how will these heaters provide support to your primary heating system? The propane heater on its part due to its transportability may be used in enclosures. It can be made use of in the garage or other confined areas in your home. However, when making use of this heater one must be careful as wrong use can result in adverse consequences.

Storage heaters on the other hand may be used to augment heat supplied by your main energy system so you don’t have to depend on this usually more expensive primary source of energy for heat.

Therefore, it is wise to have them; propane space heater and storage heater as providing auxiliary support in terms of meeting energy needs of your home even at a cheaper rate. This is especially so with the propane space heater.

Notwithstanding these benefits that storage heaters have they are also known to have certain disadvantages. They include: being too bulky or heavy and the lack of understanding of how to operate this heater by customers that buy them.

Lastly, it is important to seriously think about the benefits, disadvantages of a storage heater and propane heater before buying any. If gas distribution is not available where you live, then buying a storage heater might be the wisest option to augment energy supplied through electricity.
