FAQ’s

Who sets up the heater?

One of our staff members will set up the heater for you. You just need to turn it on when your party starts.

How long will the heater last?

We include a 9kg gas bottle. This will give approximately 7-10 hours of heating depending on the setting you have it on. If you set it to the highest setting you will get approximately 7 hours. If you keep it on a moderate setting you will get about 9 hours. If you set to a low setting you will get around 10 hours.

What happens if we run out of gas?

You can take the gas bottle to your local service station for a top up. We also provide extra gas bottles for $30, which we can leave for back up if you think you might run out.

Are the heaters safe around children?

If you have children, you are best to hire a mushroom heater rather then an area or space heater. They are higher up away from children’s reach, making it a safer option. The heaters also have a shut off switch when tipped. However you should always supervise children when you have heaters set up.

What type of heaters do you offer?

We hire gas mushroom heaters, space heaters and area heaters, and also electric mushroom heaters.  See our home page for a description of each and their advantages and disadvantages to help you choose which is the most appropriate heater for your application

 

Im trying to decide between an electric mushroom heater and a gas mushroom heater. What is the difference?

An electric heater plugs into your power whilst a gas heater doesn’t require any electricity and is self-sufficient; it runs on an LPG gas cylinder. The main advantage of an electric heater is that it can last continuously as it runs off electricity. The disadvantage is that it can draw a lot of power and drain energy from other electrical equipment you have set up. You also need to run power leads through your party.

The LPG mushroom heaters are self-sufficient and don’t need power so they are more convenient. Their downfall is that they don’t last as long, but they can do up to 10 hours which is usually sufficient for a standard party. We can also leave you a back up gas bottle.

Do you deliver the heaters or can we pick them up?

How long does the heater hire period last?
