With Christmas approaching fast and the darker, chillier nights now upon us, we want our homes to be warm and inviting for visitors over the festive period. However heating the whole house, especially those spare guest rooms, conservatories and office spaces that you may use only occasionally isn’t always practical.
Well there is a quick and easy way to add instant warmth to a space without spending a fortune or compromising on design – by adding a Calor gas portable heater.
Modern portable heaters have changed from the bulky boxes in the corner of Grandma’s living room! Now they can provide the look and feel of a classic woodburner, but without the mess.
They are also far cheaper to purchase than fixed solid fuel alternatives, require no flue, and, with no cables and trailing leads can be easily moved around to make even the coldest spots feel warm and inviting*.
Hot up your home
There is an extensive range of portable heaters available from Calor to help keep your home on trend. Requiring no installation, they are a no fuss, no mess option for occasional heating needs.
Portable heaters also offer speed of heat, and can warm a room much faster than most electric heaters. Some models even boast a real flame effect, for that cosy glow.
Calor’s Manhattan model is a modern and stylish portable heater that will appeal to those with a preference for contemporary design. Costing only £199.99 and emitting 3 kW of heat, it’s both efficient and stylish.
Calor’s Provence model, which can be bought for £269.99, has a traditional stove design, with a real flame and two heat settings for flexibility. With varying colour options including matt black, gloss black, dark blue and cream, you’re sure to find a colour to suit.
Off-grid central heating
As well as offering a range of portable heaters, Calor also offers LPG as a fuel for rural homes without a connection to mains gas. LPG is the closest alternative to being on mains gas, and you can supply your central heating and hot water, gas fires, cooking, and even appliances such as tumble dryers!
LPG is the cleanest and greenest of all off-grid fossil fuels and is also really efficient with modern condensing LPG boilers achieving efficiencies of 90 per cent and more. And what’s more, unlike oil or solid fuel, it is virtually impossible to steal.
Automatic top-up technology is available on Calor LPG tanks, which monitors gas levels and alerting Calor when a delivery is required, meaning there’s no need to check fuel levels or re-order. Calor also retain ownership the LPG storage tank, and for a small monthly charge, insure and maintain it, so you don’t need to worry about its upkeep.
An LPG tank can be easily hidden underground which looks nicer, and if you’re short of outside space or have lower heating needs, compact cylinder packs are available too. LPG suppliers such as Calor also offer fixed rates for certain periods, which is a plus if you’re looking to keep in-control of your heating costs.
What’s more, if you’re a new Calor customer you can receive an above ground tank installation free of charge, including tank delivery, installation, civil works and the gas connection**.
So keep your guests cosy this winter with a portable heater, or if you’re off-grid then consider the switch to Calor gas, and create a warm and welcoming home this Christmas.
