Best Space Heaters for Storm Emergency

Winter storms are a force of nature, and some can be large enough to affect several states at once. When accompanied by freezing rain and strong winds, power lines can easily be taken down, forcing thousands of people to lose power for long periods of time without heat. In the event of a power outage or emergency, ventless gas space heaters are a great resource to provide efficient, powerful heat to keep you and your family safe and warm.

According to the Red Cross , individuals should regularly check the National Weather Service for updated weather information in their area and prepare in advance for potential power outages especially if have senior citizens or young children reside in the home.

Create A Supply Kit

Have an emergency supply kit is one of the best ways to prepare for unexpected winter weather or storms. The Red Cross suggests having a two week supply of a gallon of water for each person in the home (1 gallon for 1 day), and a two week supply of easily prepared food. They also advise your emergency kit to include a first aid kit, battery operated flashlight and radio, and warm winter clothing for all members of the household.  If you happen to have pets or small children, extra formula or food should be prepared for them as well.

In the event of a power outage, an alternate heating source like a wood stove or a ventless gas space heater will prove vital in keeping you and your family warm and comfortable.  If you're unable to purchase an alternate heat source, it's important to know where the nearest public shelter is in the event you have to evacuate while electricity is being restored.

Best Heat Source For Emergency

Ventless space heaters, also known as vent-free space heaters, can operate without electricity if there is a power outage. These heaters commonly come in two types, either blue flame or radiant (infrared), which are both extremely efficient yet deliver heat in different ways. Additionally, all FactoryBuysDirect blue flame or radiant (infrared) heaters include dual fuel technology which allow them to run using either natural gas or liquid propane.

Blue Flame Space Heater

Blue Flame Gas Heaters

Blue flame heaters can warm an entire room quickly and thoroughly. To do this, the heater circulates cold air from the room into the heater and warms it before sending the hot air back into the room. This process is similar to that of a central air furnace, but essentially condensed into a smaller, easy to mount wall space heater. 

Blue Flame heaters can warm an entire room quickly and thoroughly. To do this, the heater circulates cold air from the room into the heater and warms it before sending the hot air back into the room. This process is similar to that of a central air furnace, but essentially condensed into a smaller, easy to mount wall space heater. However because they focus on heating one room, these heaters are extremely cost-effective and offer a cheaper way to efficiently heat your home both during an emergency or the normal winter chill.

Infrared Space Heater

Infrared Space Heaters

Infrared Space Heaters , or radiant heaters, can heat people, objects, and the air in a room. This is accomplished by providing direct heat through the use of radiant heating plaques. In particular, these heaters are recommended for home with less insulation or populated areas of the home that are cold and drafty. However because infrared heaters function using directional heat, you will either need to be in front of or nearby the heating zone to feel the heat.

While using different methods to heat a space, blue flame heaters and infrared heaters are both effective ways to keep you warm in the event of a power outage.
