Propane Space Heaters

Heating your home in winter is absolutely essential, but you don’t want to be running up huge heating bills either. Keeping the heat on all the time throughout your house can get expensive in a hurry. Plus, with the increased demand for heat across the board, the fuels used become more expensive as well, which only serves to drive up your bill even more.

So, what’s the alternative? Well, here at Bahr’s, we offer a wide range of propane powered space heaters that can help you keep your home toasty warm in the winter without costing you an arm and a leg. Also, our expert staff is happy to assist you in making the right propane space heater choice to suit your particular needs in your Zephyrhills area home.

Propane Space Heaters Benefits

If you’re relying only on your central heating system to keep your home comfortable in the winter, you’re pretty much going to have it running the whole time. You’re also likely going to be heating a lot of rooms that are unoccupied, which is quite simply a waste of energy. Space heaters, on the other hand, are easy to turn on and off when you need them.

They also don’t take too long to heat up since you’re only relying on them to heat a smaller space. It may take your central heating system a half hour or more to truly warm up your house when you first turn it on. However, you’ll begin to feel the heat from propane space heaters almost immediately and you’ll be comfortable in no time.

This not only saves you time and gets you warm faster, but it’s also often much cheaper than heating your whole house all of the time. If you want to keep your house comfortable, you really need to just leave the heat on even when you’re not there. Space heaters, however, can quickly warm up a room as soon as you get home so you don’t need to waste energy and money keeping an empty house warm.

Some of these models are even programmable, meaning that you can set your heater to shut off at night or when you leave for work in the morning and then automatically come back on when you’re up and about again. They also incorporate state of the art safety features like oxygen depletion sensors that shut off the heater if it detects the level of oxygen in the air is dropping to unsafe levels.

Types of Propane Space Heaters

There are quite a few different types of propane space heaters. Some can be mounted on the wall, while others are easy to pick up and carry with you from one room to another. These types of heaters also come with different BTU ratings, which essentially describe the size of the space they’re suited for. A heater with a higher BTU will be able to heat a larger area. However, if the rooms in your home are smaller, you won’t need a very powerful heater at all.

Propane vs. Electric Space Heaters

Of course, there are other types of heaters besides those powered by propane. Electric space heaters are the ones most commonly found in homes, and some of them can be quite effective. However, you don’t want to cut down on your heating bill only to run up your electric bill. Propane space heaters are often much cheaper to operate than their electric counterparts.

These heaters are also more portable and versatile since they don’t need to be plugged into an outlet in order to function. Although specifications vary from one brand to another, most propane space heaters maintain a low outer surface temperature than similar electric heaters, which minimizes the chances that you, your pet or your child will accidently be burned by the heater.

With so many different types of propane space heaters to choose from, it can be difficult to figure out which one will be the best for your particular situation. That’s why, when you call Bahr’s Propane Gas & AC Inc., we’ll be happy to assist you in selecting the right propane space heater to get the job done in your home. Our expert staff will show you exactly how to operate your heater and what precautions you may want to take in order to keep everyone in your home safe and warm all winter long.
