A large portion of South African homes weren’t built with a fireplace. And many can’t accommodate one even if you wanted one. Whatever the reason, you shouldn’t freeze because you don’t have the space or budget to install a fireplace. An effective, versatile and economical way of fighting back the cold is Megamaster’s outdoor gas heaters.
HOT TIP: When turning your gas heater on for the first time, hold down the gas dial for 10 to 15 seconds to fill the gas line then press the ignitor button.
Unlike electric heaters or central heating which can balloon your electricity bill during winter, gas heating is your most pocket-friendly alternative. You’ll get weeks of cosy comfort out your heater before you need to replace or refill your gas canister. And because you’re paying for your gas as you go, there are no hidden or surprise costs. The cost to the environment is also reduced. Gas heaters are eco-friendly when compared to most other heating options. Something we should all be conscious of in this age of climate change.
With no power chord or electrical outlet needed, Megamaster’s portable gas heaters go where you need them to. You can use them almost anywhere – at home or the once, inside, outside on the patio, or take it camping. Wherever you need warmth, a roll about or portable gas heater is a dependable solution.
Fiery Fact: Megamaster’s gas units offer more intense and near instant heat meaning you can warm up larger spaces faster.
