This offer is as cheap as I can find it with 15kg gas cylinder. I'm not too sure what the agreement part is though. I know that the charge is about £30 to replace via Calor Gas. That might be the catch, although it seems to be the 'normal going rate'



The Delonghi Quattro plus Metropolis radiant portable gas heater has a large heat output and has 3 heat settings giving a 4.2kW on high. This cabinet heater has a stylish design making idea for use in a lounge, conservatory or office. It also is idea for heating a workshop or hobby room, kitchen or hallway. The high heat output makes it suitable for use in other commercial situations as well. The Delonghi Quattro plus Metropolis radiant portable gas heater is designed to use the Calor Gas 15kG making it economic to use.

The Delonghi Quattro plus Metropolis radiant cabinet heater has two main safety features. Firstly the pilot light monitors the level of Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide in the room; before the level become unsafe the portable heater will automatically turn itself off. In addition, should the pilot flame be blown out, the gas supply is cut off making the heater safe.

This portable gas heater is available in the Metropolis Gun Metal grey colour. The Delonghi Quattro plus Metropolis radiant heater is small enough the make storage easy. If you plan to store the heater for long periods without using it, then it is best to remove the cylinder which should be stored outside.

Features:
Intra red radiant heater
Max heat output 4.2kW
H790mm x W430mm x D480mm
Designed to operate with the Calor Gas 15kG cylinder

As a guide the running time on a 15kG cylinder is

Medium Setting = 100hours
High Setting = 50hours

The agreement will be the cylinder rental agreement, it basically means that you will get a cylinder as well as the refill if you select that you need one.

These things are absolutely brill, if you need some heat this is the thing for you.

A great way to fill you home with condensation & mould, at a price little less per useful KwH than peak time electricity :-(

These things need LOTS of permanent ventilation (eg. vents in doors or window frames) to use safely which the manufacturers forget to stress (but you can usually confirm if you read their full paperwork); which if you provide it, will result in gales in the room, so you might as well use an electric heater which does not need that! Not usually acceptable in Multi story buildings or houses in multiple occupation or any number of other locations.

Add that you need to wait for deliveries of refills, (or have more money to spend on extra cylinders with the resulting storage problems for LPG cylinders)
Just like fixed gas fires, these things need annual inspections from a qualified gas fitter too.
Did I mention they also are responsible for many children/elderly getting burned? A full fire-guard (not the little thing on the front) is as necessary for these as for open fires or fixed gas fires, and those guards are expensive too.

Overall, a positive nuisance and hazard, which in RARE cases are brilliant for temporary heating in emergency, but should be left for that use only, with warnings printed all over them :-(

I posted this deal expecting a post of your nature. It's nice to see in black & white the downside of a possible solution for a third party.

I was fully aware of the condensation issue, and never really thought through the necessity to own 2 cylinders to ensure a continuous supply. I'm sure my deal is a good price for this product, but I can now see that an oil filled radiator may be a more sensible choice for the person I had in mind. I have also heard some people suffer tiredness with these kind of units.

in law had one of these, turned most things in the room yellow.
#6
I use one of these in my kitchen.

Its great for quick / powerful heat and the gas seems to last a long time.

Great for what I need (intermittant, quick heat for relitavely short periods of time) but dont think I would use as a permanent heat source.

Depends on your electicity tariffs, but do your homework on what peak time electricity costs, say 11p to 15p per KwH and equate that to one cylinder lasting 50 hours use on full (ie producing up to 4.2Kw) - it comes in something like about 25 to 30 quids worth of power - which is not a lot different to the cost of a cylinder. Electric heaters are cheaper to buy, require no extra ventilation, and are just as instant, and are lower cost to buy as well as smaller and even more portable, without the other issues. Becomes a no-brainer, even aside from the safety issues!

The most direct example I have seen of the effect on users was in a hairdressers' salon, where use in an atmosphere of salon chemicals produced a strong smog-like haze, looking something like a steam room in a health spa, but with a chemical taste, and eye watering effect!

With the right ventilation, (it is a LOT!) they are fine, but universally users then compain about the excessive draught!

As I say, they are BRILLIANT in the right situation, but everyday domestic or light commercial use is not that situation :-(
