DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

Seek­ing to heat your out­door area or just look­ing for a good pa­tio heater for your backyard or open ve­randa? If you are look­ing to in­vest into por­ta­ble heaters, here are your op­tions: • Floor-stand­ing mush­room-style gas heaters. • Pyra­mid f lame gas heaters. • Ce­ramic infrared gas heaters. Though mush­room style gas heaters are cheap, high gas con­sump­tion, sig­nif­i­cant heat losses and poor qual­ity make them the poor choice. Pyra­mid f lame glass gas heaters con­sume less gas but don’t pro­vide suf­fi­cient heat. To feel the warmth, you need to be close to the heater. Heaters. avail­able in Australia and New Zealand, are man­u­fac­tured in China. Ce­ramic gas heaters, or infrared heaters, heat the ob­jects, not wast­ing en­ergy on heat­ing the air. • They con­sume less fuel – a nine kg bot­tle is enough for 20–30 hours of us­age. • With the side spread heat pat­tern, the

heater cov­ers 25- 40 m2. • It takes only a few sec­onds to switch on the heater, and it re­quires a gen­tle shake to shut the f lame down. • High qual­ity prod­uct, man­u­fac­tured in France, is avail­able in Australia and New Zealand, with the heater op­er­at­ing on av­er­age for 20 years and re­quir­ing lit­tle or no main­te­nance. • To­tal cost of own­er­ship over 5–10 years is 1.5–2 times lower than other types of heaters. To con­clude, al­ways make your re­search and cal­cu­la­tions to get the best value for money when in­vest­ing in out­door heat­ing so­lu­tions.
