On the back of recent Severe Weather Warnings, we thought now might be a good time to tell you about our Kampa Cabinet Heaters

Back

According to some recent mainstream reporting, the UK is forecast to enjoy some severe weather this winter. The report suggests that colder than average weather is likely to strike between November to January in fact, at the time of writing up to 7.8 inches of snow is forecast to fall on higher ground in the North, leading to Met Office warnings being issued across much of the country.

Severe winter weather warning signWhile a cold winter snap is unlikely to cause widespread chaos for most homes, properties with older heating systems and the elderly maybe more vulnerable to persistent bouts of cold weather. In the event of a heating emergency it's good to know an alternative source of heating is available and where you can go to get help.

Although Cabinet Heater sales have declined since the invention and adoption of modern central heating systems, they are still an important source of heat with enumerable applications. This is largely thanks to their lightweight and portable design, aided by integrated carry handles shaped in the heater casing and castor wheels fixed to the base, making heater movement smooth and effortless.

Cabinet Heaters are commonly found in homes, offices, commercial premises, greenhouses, sheds and even residential park homes. They are exclusively powered by butane LPG Gas, typically Calor Gas 7kg or 15kg cylinder sizes dependent upon the size of the heater.

TIP: Butane gas remains operational at temperatures above -0.5° Celsius. At temperatures approaching freezing it becomes difficult and finally impossible for butane liquid fuel to convert into a gas. Therefore, we would not suggest operating a Cabinet Heater in near freezing temperatures.

Benefits of Radiant Heating

Fitted with ceramic encased heating elements, Kampa Cabinet Heaters deliver what is called Radiant heat, or infra-red. Radiant heaters work by transmitting infrared light (energy), which happens to be invisible to the human eye. Similar to te sun, infrared energy does not heat the surrounding air, instead it heats the surfaces of the objects it comes in contact with, offering the following advantageous:

  • Infrared radiant heat is not absorbed by surrounding air, making it much more energy efficient and cheaper to run compared with warm air heaters.
  • Provides directed and instant heat, with no need for expensive pre-heating.
  • Radiant heating minimizes the loss of heat via the roof, by keeping the heat at floor level and around the objects to be heated.
  • Radiant heating is safe to use as there is no live flame to start a fire.

SAFETY: Impressive safety features come as standard, making Kampa Cabinet Heaters very safe to use, even unsupervised in enclosed spaces. A Flame Failure Device works by shutting the gas supply off in the event gas combustion fails on any of the 3 burners. A Tilt Switch shuts off the gas supply if the heater is knocked or tipped over, and an Oxygen Depletion Detector shuts down the gas supply in the event the oxygen level in the room drops below a safe level.

Getting a Kampa Cabinet Heater started is a doddle using the easy touch, push button ignition. Simply connect the LPG gas bottle and turn the regulator to the on position. On the top of the Kampa Modern and Mini Cabinet Heater, adjust the dial control to position 1 and immediately start to press the Piezo igniter until the first burner ignites. Continue to hold down the dial control for a count of 10 before adjusting the temperature.

IMPORTANT: While it is safe to use the aforementioned Cabinet Heaters unsupervised, we strongly recommend you do not leave any heater unattended in the event the room is occupied by younger children, who maybe at risk of injury due to touching the heater elements or tipping the heater over.
