LPG Cabinet Heater Faults

Unflued Cabinet Gas Heaters

Unflued LPG cabinet heaters are commonly known as cabinet heaters. These cabinet heaters are portable and use a 9 kgs LPG bottle. The most common faults in LPG cabinet heaters are that they will not light or stay alight for long.

Using LPG gas heaters without any vents in your house can be harmful to your health as well as the house. The vapour and gases are unflued and, they make your house damp. Unflued LPG gas heaters emit carbon monoxide, this cannot be seen and has no smell. It can cause serious illness and even death. Heater grills and vents must be kept clean all the time. If you see lint or dust, clean it immediately before using the cabinet heater. There is also a risk of fire taking place when using these heaters. To lower the risk, we recommend you ensure the door or window is open. Do not operate LPG gas heaters in small spaces such as caravans, bathrooms, bedrooms, etc.

LPG Cabinet Heater WellingtonLPG gas heaters are expensive to operate compared to natural gas. Its rare to find these heaters on sale now. One of their faults is they are portable and people put them into bedrooms. As the appliances are unflued they are dangerous if there is not sufficient ventilation as they emit Carbon Monoxide.  If LPG gas consumption is higher than usual for you, then move to natural gas or larger LPG bottles. In some cases, it is cheaper to run electric as LPG is an expensive energy source, particularly in 9 KGs bottles.

Some faults in LPG gas heaters are not worth fixing. If the charges for fixing an LPG gas heater are higher than $100, we recommend buying a new one. It makes no sense to spend so much money on fixing an old LPG heater.
