Gas bayonet installations for portable heaters is common and people often move the heater to where they need it and then store it away during the warmer months.
Please keep in mind that for portable gas heaters ventilation needs to be considered. It is often a requirement by law that any room where a gas heater is used must have a low vent and high vent for ventilation of un-burnt gases. Ventilation is needed so fresh oxygen can replace any carbon monoxide that may come from the burning of gas.
Gas vs Electric heaters
Many people prefer gas because of the typically higher efficiency and lower operating and installation costs. The other advantage of portable gas heaters is that with a few gas bayonet plus around the home you can take the heater with you. In the study during the day for work and in the lounge at relaxation time, all with the ability to pack away after use or during summer.
Flued vs un-flued gas heating
Portable gas heaters are un-flued. They are popular as they produce large amounts of heat and they are more energy efficient and cheaper to run than electric heating options. An un-flued gas heater does not have this vent to atmosphere and therefore releases emissions into the room. For this reason ventilation, if it is not already there needs to be installed. Un-flued gas heaters have very strict emissions requirements, which our gas plumbers will check whenever installing a gas bayonet. A flued gas heater is one that vents the emissions created to the outside of the home.
Some of the most popular has heaters include:
- Gas fireplaces
