Here at London Gases, we understand that not everyone wants to use home fuels (such as gas bottles, coal or logs) as their sole source of heating. Instead, you may wish to use home fuels to supplement the energy you get from a mainstream gas or electricity company. However, even if you only use home fuels as a supplementary power supply, there is one piece of fuel-burning equipment you should definitely invest in: a cabinet heater. Cabinet heaters are portable heaters that are powered by Calor gas bottles or other brands of bottled fuel. We believe that they are also truly indispensable – here's why:
1. Cabinet heaters cut costs
Switching on your central heating can be expensive, especially if you’re on a high energy tariff. What’s more, it’s often unnecessary. If you only want to heat one room in your home, you can do so with minimal expenditure by using a cabinet heater. They’re much cheaper to run than your central heating. Plus, you know exactly how much you will spend when you use your cabinet heater because the fuel has to be purchased in advance. This makes it much easier to keep track of your expenses.
2. Cabinet heaters can travel with you
Cabinet heaters make great heat sources for camping trips. If you have a sufficiently large tent or caravan, they can be used inside your camp. If you plan on camping during the winter or in a colder climate, they are immeasurably useful. Just remember to take proper safety precautions when using them, as camp sites are less spacious than your home and often contain more flammable materials.
3. Cabinet heaters keep working under any circumstances
If you suffer a power-cut or black-out, you will probably be unable to use your home’s central heating system. During the summer, this isn’t really a problem, but it can become a severe issue when the colder seasons roll around. Gas-powered cabinet heaters can be operated without any external power supply, which means that they are incredibly handy during power-cuts.
Even if you don’t intend to use Calor gas bottles or other home fuels as your primary energy source, investing in a cabinet heater is always a good idea. Check out our range of heaters today.
