When it comes to heating health and safety should be the first boxes ticked. Eurolux micathermic panel heaters offer a clean heat that creates no fumes, no sound and is extremely safe. Micathermic heating technology, due to its lack of fumes, is an ideal solution for those with asthma or respiratory prob- lems. And owing to the fact that the heaters have no visible coils or quartz tubes, they are safer than conventional radiant heaters. Noted for its increased speed, efficiency and safety, micathermic heating technology has eclipsed the more traditional heating formats such as oil-filled column heaters and convection heaters. Micathermic technology produces radiant and convection heat simultaneously and reaches maximum heat output within 60 seconds. The Panel range features four models each with different heat settings. Each model is thermostatically controlled, energy-efficient and can be wall-mounted (bracket supplied). The Eurolux micathermic panel heater range carries a two-year warranty and is available nationally from electric retail outlets, appliance specialists and some department stores. The PF3224 retails for $249, the PF3220 for $229, the PF3215 for $185 and the PF3210 for $169.

The research was released as Emergency Services Minister Steve Whan officially launched a three-year Major Community Partnership between the NSW Fire Brigades and GIO. GIO representative John Rogers said fire danger was a real risk for NSW families and preparation was key to avoiding a disaster. ''House fires in NSW most commonly start in the kitchen, with cooking the leading cause, so it is concerning to learn that almost 10 per cent of parents allow their children to cook unsupervised,'' he said. GIOs research shows one-in-four NSW residents have experienced a home fire. In fact, 41 per cent of NSW residents said they had a fire escape plan in place. NSW Fire Brigades works non-stop to educate the community about fire safety through campaigns highlighting the risk of fires in the home and the crucial need for families to have smoke alarms and home escape plans. Already in place is its pre-school program delivering simple fire safety messages to three- to five-year-olds and its primary school program to teach children in infants grades about fire prevention and safety. NSWFB deputy commissioner Ken Thompson said families should develop a home fire escape plan.
