Space Heaters

Natural Gas Space Heaters Deliver Warmth Just Where You Need for Hobbies, Fun and Work

Is there a porch, solarium, workshop or garage, which you'd like to use for entertaining, hobbies or as a workspace even when temperatures fall? Would you like to enjoy the patio on a chilly morning or linger in the evening to watch the stars? Do you want to add a room but can't extend the central heating from the main part of the house? You have a choice of natural gas space heaters to let you make better use of existing spaces and also extend seasonal use.

There are two types of technologies: convection and radiant.

A convection type uses natural gas to create heat much like in a gas furnace, with a blower distributing the warm air through the space. These can handle small residential areas like a room addition to a large open area like a warehouse.

The radiant models work by 'radiating' the heat into an open area and heating the objects or people it contacts, rather than the air around them. This type of space heater can work well in a variety of applications ranging from a garage to a patio or pool deck.

For indoor installations, these units can be vented directly through an outside wall, thereby using outside air for combustion and increased efficiency. They have safety features like matchless pilot ignition.
