    A Selection of The Best Gas Heaters for Sale

    We offer a wide range of gas heaters for sale at competitive prices in South Africa.


    What Is a Gas Heater

    A gas heater is a type of space heater that uses natural gas, propane, butane, or liquefied petroleum gas to produce heat.

    This type of heater can be used to heat an indoor or outdoor area and uses natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, propane, or butane as fuel to produce heat.

    When ignited, the flame warms the air in the immediate vicinity. This hot air then travels across the room via convection, warming up the entire space. The same basic idea may be used to explain modern outdoor patio heaters, sometimes known as "mushroom heaters”.

    When compared to electric heaters, gas heaters are capable of producing significantly more heat in the same length of time. A gas heater has lower running costs than an electric heater since gas is often more affordable than electricity. Only in situations where a relatively small area has to be heated at a lower temperature are electric space heaters more cost-effective.

    We also have a range of other types of heaters for sale. If heaters aren't your preferred option, we also have a selection of electric blankets.


    How Does a Gas Heater Work

    Heat is produced by burning propane or natural gas in the furnace's burner. The flame causes the air in its immediate surroundings to get warmer. After that, the hot air rises and circulates throughout the room, heating the entire space.


    Different Types of Gas Heaters

    When you choose an indoor gas heater, you have a lot of options. Think about how much money you want to spend, how your home looks, and what kind of gas you can get.

    Some choices for gas heaters are:

    Space heaters

    A space heater is a type of heater that can heat a specific area.

    When compared to the usage of central heating, the energy consumption of space heaters is significantly lower.

    Space heaters are often cheap and a great way to heat your room without spending a lot of money. Most of the time, they are small, but they heat most individual rooms in homes well.

    Unfortunately, they are not as effective as space heaters in terms of heating the room. Having a space heater in every room of the house and turning them all on at the same time can only increase the cost of heating, rather than decrease it.

    Wall furnaces

    A wall furnace heater is a self-contained type of heater with sealed combustion. It is also known as a direct-vent wall furnace. This type of heating equipment warms the air in a room by recirculating it around a sealed chamber and then vents the combustion by-products directly outside of the house.

    Wall furnaces are not connected to the ductwork in a building, but they are permanently attached to the construction of the building.

    Gas heaters that are mounted on the wall like this, are a stylish way to heat your home. They can often be added to an existing fireplace, and the best ones are quiet and give off enough heat to make your home more comfortable.

    Gas log fires

    A gas log fire is composed of piping and a set of ceramic logs. These logs are versatile and can be used in a wide variety of fireplace configurations. The logs have been drilled full of holes, and the pipes inside them pump an invisible gas through them. A constant flame is produced by the ceramic logs once the gas logs have been ignited.

    A gas fireplace is a way to go if you want the sound and feel of a flickering flame. It has all the charm of an open fire, but you don't have to chop wood or clean up ash or embers.

    There are other ways to heat with gas, like duct heating or hydronic heating. Duct heating is a type of central heating that is designed to bring air into your home through a return air grille. The air is then routed through a heat exchanger, which is heated by the combustion of gas.

    Hydronic heating is a heating system that makes use of water to transport heat from a source, such as a gas boiler or a heat pump, to each room in the house via piping.

    A flange heater is a heating unit that is attached to a process installation utilizing a bolted flange.


    Pros and Cons of Gas Heaters



    Gas heaters are cost-effective and cheaper to run than electric heaters.

    During heating, carbon monoxide is discharged into the atmosphere by gas heaters.

    Gas heating is environmentally friendly, they produce a quarter to a third of the carbon of an equivalent electric heater.

    Water vapour from the combustion process can condense on walls and ceilings and cause mould.

    Gas provides a reliable source of heat and you won't be at the mercy of power surges or power outages.

    Gas has to be bought from a gas supplier, but you can make electricity at home with solar panels.

    Gas heaters will heat a space quicker than an electric option.

    Gas heaters are often larger when compared to flanged heaters.

    Gas heaters are great for modern Homes since it is more effective in heating open-plan living spaces.

    If there is a problem with the heating element of a gas heater, it is necessary to replace the complete device.

    A range of safety features (in modern models) will switch the heater off in case something's wrong.

    The gas heater needs to be serviced every couple of years or so.



    How to Choose a Gas Heater

    After you have decided that a gas heater is the best option for your home, you should investigate the many models, dimensions, as well as operating expenses that are available.

    Choose the Right Size of Gas Heater

    If you spend more money than you need to on a gas heater that is too big for the room you want to heat, you will experience the following drawbacks:

    • You will lose money upfront by spending too much;
    • You will also have greater operating costs going forward.

    If you don't spend enough money when choosing a heater to heat your room, you will experience the following drawbacks:

    • You won't be able to heat the room effectively;
    • You will also lose money because you will probably have to consider buying another heater.

    So, to choose the right heater for a room, you should do the following:

    • Evaluate the warming capacity of a gas heater;
    • Calculate and consider the size of the room;
    • Calculate the rate at which the heater can bring the temperature up in the room, a factor that is in turn subject to a wide variety of exceptions and conditions.

    Factors that influence the temperature in your room

    The following factors play a role in determining how much heat your home needs:

    • The type of climate zone that you live in;
    • The height of the ceilings in your house;
    • Are the rooms next to the one you want to heat, also heated;
    • Do you have sufficient insulation for your house;
    • Does the room receive direct sunlight or not;
    • What is the size of the windows in the room;
    • Are there solid curtains in front of all the windows;
    • Are all or some of the windows double-glazed?

    The cost of gas heating

    One thing to keep in mind is that gas needs to be bought, and the cost of fuel, in the long run, is difficult to predict. The following factors can further influence the cost of gas heating:

    • In comparison to portable electric heaters, heating a room with gas is still a very cost-effective option at the moment;
    • Gas prices have been volatile over the past several years owing to several different variables;
    • There is a good chance that prices will move higher over the long run while one can generate one's supply of low-cost electricity through the use of solar panels.

    Additionally, keep an eye out for the following features of gas heaters:

    • Remote controls provide you with the ability to adjust the temperature as well as the speed of the fans; some models even come with wired as well as wireless options, giving you the flexibility to manage the system from a greater distance;
    • The use of thermostats makes it much simpler to get the temperature that one desires;
    • Timers that may be programmed are useful tools for conserving energy. The majority may be set to automatically turn on and off at specific times over 24 hours;
    • Child locks are a highly significant safety feature that is available on some models. They are also available on some models;
    • The use of electronic ignition is advantageous since it enables a possible reduction in energy consumption by eliminating the requirement to have a pilot light burning at all times;
    • It is quite helpful to have a function that alerts you when the filter needs to be cleaned so that you may clean it periodically and as needed.
