Home Living : June 9th 2009
HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, June 9, 2009 5 Warm up your winter party HOMELIVING ASK THE EXPERTS » ADVERTISING FEATURE Carol and Geoff Murray are planning a 21st birthday party for their son David and are keen to have it at home. They are concerned it will be too cold in the middle of winter. Can they hire heaters for such occasions? Kennards Hire director Angus Kennard says a wide range of heaters can be hired from any of the company's 25 centres throughout Sydney. Heaters are available for warming all sorts of venues, from draughty halls and auditoriums to marquees and outdoor entertainment areas. What are the options? Mushroom heaters, which are common at outdoor cafes, are the most popular for home parties. They offer the advantages of being safe, very easy to operate, and also easy to move around if required. They are powered by LPG, with the gas bottle hidden inside a metal skirt. We also have height-adjustable, LPG-powered patio heaters and torpedo-shaped space heaters for warming large auditoriums and halls. Can you hire electric heaters? Electric-powered infra-red heaters, that plug into a normal power point, are another option. They are different to radiant heaters in that they warm objects in their path rather than heating the air. There is no warm-up time with these heaters. You turn on the electricity and the heat is instant. They have twin bars which can be used separately or together, with a capacity to produce an of up to 2500W. Some Kennards branches also have electric- powered patio heaters. What else can be hired for winter heating? Kennards has petrol and electric chainsaws, as well as trailer-mounted log splitters, to keep the home fires burning. Cutting your own firewood is an economical way to heat your home and, with a group of friends, this can also be a good day out. Firewood may be gathered on private properties where permission is obtained and permits to cut wood in state forests for personal use can be purchased from Forests NSW. Kennards has quality chainsaws and, to maximise reliability and efficiency, fits a new chain before every hire. Where do I get more advice?
