Gas heaters are an excellent way to heat your home quickly and cost-effectively

Factors to consider when heating your home

When choosing a gas heater to warm your Hampton home, it is essential to take several factors into account of the rooms you are trying to heat:

  • The floor area of the room(s) you want to heat
  • Ceiling height of the room
  • The number of rooms you want to heat 
  • Insulation of the room
  • Amount of direct sunlight the room gets
  • Size of the windows in the room

Choosing the right size heater

Your room size dictates the size of the gas heater you need. If a gas heater is too small, it can’t adequately heat the area; conversely, if you buy a gas heater that is too large means wasted money upfront and higher ongoing running costs.

A gas heater’s warming capacity is not just about the room size; it is also about how quickly the heater can warm the space.
