Liquid petroleum gas (LPG) heaters give off lots of water vapor which can have an adverse effect on the building, and can lead to the onset of rot in woodwork. If they are used, cylinders should be kept to a minimum and preferably changed in the open air in a well ventilated area away from any source of ignition.
Electric radiant heaters and paraffin/oil fired heaters should never be used, even as a temporary measure, as they work by emitting heat from an element or flame and pose a significant fire risk. Portable heaters should be sited well clear of combustible materials and, where possible, protected against the possibility of being knocked over or moved accidentally by the fitting of guards.
-Do not leave temporary heaters unattended for long periods.
-Turn off any temporary heaters when the building is unoccupied.
-Heaters should never be moved when switched on.
-Notify us before using any temporary device to ensure you are covered.
