As Seen On Dragon's Den

The 7th series of Dragons Den featured our first ever outdoor Infrared heaters Zeus, Neptune and Mercury on Wednesday the 15th of July 2009. Eddie was kept in the den under severe pressure and “interrogation” for more than 2 and half hours which was edited down to 9 minutes on air. Eddie still holds the record of the biggest offer recorded on the show but passed up the offer from James Caan and Peter Jones who wanted 50% of the company.

+Infrared Patio Heater- make a difference

Low Running Costs 36p/hour for our garden heaters - compare £7/hour for gas heaters In full maximum heat operation ChillChaser® units draw up to 3Kw of power per hour. Because they only heat people and not the air they are not affected by the wind. Efficient power-heat conversion of 95%.  Average UK electricity costs are approximately £0.12 per Kw/hour, giving the unit an approximate running cost of 36p/hour when in full operation (both heating tubes plus light). However, when using the PIR economy button this is further reduced hence reducing the energy costs even further. Compare this running cost against the cost of frequently replacing gas cylinders in your area = £7/hr.? What is the cost saving? = £6.64 every hour of use.

These tubes DO NOT HEAT THE AIR!

+How to Properly Recycle/Dispose of Your Old Patio Heater (Gas or electric)?

When it comes time to upgrade your old patio heater unit, we encourage you to dispose of it in a safe and environmentally friendly way. The following are guidelines to help you dispose of your patio heater safely:

CLEAN: Before you dispose of your patio heater, you will need to thoroughly clean all surfaces of debris or residue.

SAFETY FIRST: Wear work gloves to protect against sharp edges or burrs in the metal.
Where applicable, if a gas heater, make sure the gas tank is off and disconnected from the regulator/hose assembly before dismantling any other parts.

Note: It may be helpful to refer to the owner's manual to disassemble your heater, making sure to complete the steps in the reverse order.

Steel/Stainless Steel/Cast Iron/Brass/Aluminium: Once disassembled and cleaned, stainless steel, steel, cast iron, brass and aluminium parts from grills can be recycled by taking to your local scrap metal dealer to find a recycling centre near you. *Remove any non-metal attachments, prior to recycling.

Plastic Control Knobs: Gas control knobs are recyclable if they are made of black plastic. Follow local municipal guidelines for plastic recycling. If they are metal plated, they should be disposed of in the standard domestic garbage waste disposal system.

Unwanted Propane Tanks: Many landfills, recycling centres, and scrap metal dealers cannot recycle unwanted tanks because of the residual propane inside. However, most propane exchange companies like Calor etc., will take them and recycle them at no cost to you. Simply leave your empty beside a propane exchange display.

Insulator Cone: Please dispose of with your domestic garbage waste disposal system.

Weight Plate: Because the plastic weight plate is full of sand, please dispose of with your normal household waste

Wheels: Please dispose of with your normal household waste

Regulator/Hose Assembly: Please dispose of with your normal household waste. Remember to disconnect the gas hose from the gas line and any regulator before disposing.

Batteries: Proven cost-effective and environmentally safe recycling processes are not yet universally available for alkaline batteries. Some communities offer recycling or collection of alkaline batteries— contact your local government for disposal practices in your area. Otherwise, to find a battery recycling location near you. Never dispose of batteries in fire as they could explode.

Electronics (i.e. igniter wires, electric controller, heating element): Check with your local Council to find out e-waste pick-up days or drop-off locations.

Note: Keep in mind that accepted recyclables vary by Council Area. Check with your local Council to see what's allowed and what's not.
