We stock the Premium Paraffin fuel with the least odour, Tozane. With all impurities removed, it’s the safest option available for both you and your heater
We have indoor heaters, outdoor heaters, super portable heaters and fan-assisted ones too.
We stock primarily Paraffin heaters, which are one of the fasting growing heaters in terms of popularity. It’s not hard to see why so many people are getting on board. They are the economically sound way to heat your home or office, without having to go to a central heating unit. They turn on at the flick of a button and you can keep an eye on your fuel levels easily.
With heater oils like Tozane now available on the Irish market, it has never been safer to use an Oil Heater. Read on below and see why so many people have made the switch to these Heaters and see how much you can save for yourself!
Paraffin heaters are far more economical to run. They are usually slightly more costly upfront, but over a year they cost considerably less than an electric fan heater or bar heater to operate.
Our Inverter Heater also has smart functions. It can maintain a specific temperature which is not only pleasant, but also saves fuel. It prevents overheating too. It also has a carbon monoxide alarm, child safety lock and a range of other benefits that don’t come with a standard electric heater.
No, none of our heaters are electric.
The majority of our heaters are wick heaters, like the 241a heater:
This type of heater is entirely portable and can be lit automatically by battery power, or manually by directly lighting the wick. They have no electric parts whatsoever.
The Inverter and Kero4600 require mains power, however they are not electrical heaters.
They use mains power to start the fan, for their internal thermometer and well, that’s about it. At the time of writing, the inverter uses less than €0.01 per hour in electricity. A similarly powered electric heater would cost €0.64 an hour. Over 8 hours that works out at €5.12 in electricity alone.
Only use top quality, liquid combustibles with the aromatics removed, which are free from impurities in our heaters. They should have max 1% of aromatics and a flash point above 61°. Please see our fuel instructions here.
Put simply, we recommend using Tozane.
And do not use Kerosene in any of these heaters!
These heaters use ROLF fuel. ROLF stands for ‘Reduce Odour Liquid Fuel’. While they are considerably less odourous than older paraffin fuels (like say, the ones that your granny would have used), but they do carry an odour. Most people consider this to be a minor odour, but some people are more susceptible to it than others. We recommend that you visit our store to see/smell a working heater for yourself before you purchase if you are unsure about this.
All fuel burning appliances can produce nitrogen dioxide. This can irritate eyes or noses and be a trigger for asthmatics.
In the same way that fans are not recommended to be used by people with Asthma, these heaters should not be used for the same reason. They can raise dust etc and trigger asthma. As a result, we do not recommend these heaters for asthmatics.
The first time that you use a wick heater, it’s very important that you allow the wick to soak in paraffin. Doing so is simple.
The wick is already installed in your heater. You just need to fill your oil tank and put it into the heater. The oil will slowly flow through the mechanism and soak the wick.
This can take up to 6-7 hours.
To avoid burning out the wick prematurely, you should not use your heater during this time. If you allow the wick to soak and keep it wet with the correct fuel, your wick should last approx 2 years.
Check out this video. While it’s not a heater that we stock, it has the same internal make-up for the most part and it will point you in the right direction.
Most of our heaters have anti-topple features to prevent accidents. Some have in built alarms also. However, our Wick Heaters can pose a risk of burning as they are hot to the touch.
The Inverter heater is our safest option as it has a cool casing, a child-lock and a carbon monoxide alarm too.
We do not recommend using a heater in an unvented area. Carbon Monoxide is created in miniscule amounts by these heaters as they burn fuel. This generally isn’t an issue for large, able bodied people – and especially if the room is vented. However for very young children, it is not recommended that fuel burning heaters of any sort are used in their room – and again, especially if this room is unvented.
If you have used the wrong fuel in your heater, it is not returnable. C1 Grade Paraffin is the only acceptable oil for all our heaters. We strongly recommend that you use Tozane.
As stated on our Fuel Products Page, and on our Fuel Instructions guide, problems resulting from using the wrong fuel are not covered by our guarantee. We also outline what types of fuel can be used in these heaters in these guides, as well as our blog post on fuels.
Paraffin is a distilled version on Kerosene. It’s had the impurities and plastics taken out, meaning that it’s made for indoor use and considerably easier on the lungs. It produces no ‘soot’ unlike it’s Kerosene counterparts, so you won’t notice any ‘blackening’ or Tar build up on your paraffin heater. These build ups can also lead to problems with the Heater turning on or off. So, you can see why we only supply Tozane Fuel.
Kerosene is not safe to be breathed in and it will damage your machine.
So while there are cheaper oils and fuels available for Oil Heaters in Ireland, none are as safe for human inhalation or lifespan of the heater than Tozane.
If you have put oil into the paraffin heater and then change your mind about it, it is not returnable. Opened heaters which are not faulty are non returnable.
The Cooling off period does not apply in this instance. This is in line with CCPC guidelines that states there is an exception to the cooling off period for “items that have been unsealed or which cannot be returned for hygiene reasons, for example, underwear, cosmetics, earrings”
We offer a warranty on our heaters provided that the correct fuel is used.
If your heater breaks down for any reason (other than the incorrect fuel being used) we can look at this for you. Please note that during fixing of heaters sometimes some surface damage/scratching can occur to the surrounding casing due to the nature of the task. This is unfortunately out of our control and it will have no effect on the functioning of your heater.
Please note, we only offer repairs on heaters that we have sold. We will need proof of purchase before beginning any repairs. Heater repair may take several weeks and it may take considerably longer if parts need to be sourced for replacement.
Contact us at 01 8644247 or on Facebook if you have any questions about your warranty.
