LPG and natural gas heaters are used widely to warm New Zealand home and businesses. Used wisely, gas is instant, reliable, efficient and safe. However, like any other form of energy it must be treated with respect to prevent accidents.
In small rooms (eg bedrooms and bathrooms) a permanently installed gas heater may only be used in restricted circumstances. Ask a licensed gasfitter for advise.
Don't use unflued gas appliances, such as LPG cabinet heaters or instantaneous water heaters in small rooms or in bedrooms and bathrooms.
