Operating cost comparison
In many instances, patio heaters powered by gas bottles are used as an outdoor heating source. The below table shows the operational cost comparison between HEATSTRIP® and a bottled gas outdoor heater. Not only are the hourly running costs considerably less with HEATSTRIP®, but you never have to worry about running out of gas, no refilling, no unattractive gas bottle to waste space; and HEATSTRIP® actually improves the value of
OUTDOOR GAS HEATER
HEATSTRIP® CLASSIC WITH REMOTE & APP ELECTRIC RADIANT HEATER
1. Calculations of hourly running cost for outdoor gas heater is based on $25.00 average to fill a 9kg gas bottle and average running time of 9 hours. $25.00 / 9 hours = $2.78 per hour
2. Electricity rate of 20.0 cents/kWh 3. All calculations are excluding GST.
1.8kW x 0.20 cents = $0.36 or 36 cents per hour 2.4kW x 0.20 cents = $0.48 or 48 cents per hour 3.2kW x 0.20 cents = $0.64 or 64 cents per hour
Calculations of yearly running cost are based on 180 hours usage
180 hours x $2.78 = $500.40 yearly running cost for outdoor gas heater 180 hours x $0.48 = $86.40 yearly running cost for 2400W HEATSTRIP® 180 hours x $0.64 cents = $115.20 yearly running cost for 3200W HEATSTRIP®
Spot heating principle
In most outdoor or difficult-to-heat indoor applications, there are 2 options when looking at the size and quantity of the heaters required.
Option 1 is to comfort heat the entire area based on the total dimensions of the space, regardless of whether the entire area is being fully occupied.
Option 2 is to spot heat the high use areas, such as over outdoor tables, BBQ's, lounges, assembly lines or indoor workstations.
Often it is more practical and efficient to spot heat high use areas. Spot heating will reduce both the initial capital cost as well as the ongoing running costs. Spot heating will allow the area to be "zoned", meaning only the areas that are being used are heated, such as tables in a restaurant or outdoor alfresco area.
Option 1 and 2 show a comparison between heating an entire area or spot heating over a table.
The bottom layout shows the flexibility of using HEATSTRIP® to provide a comfortable environment, even when the layout of the area is very unusual.
Option 1: 6 x THH2400AA
Option 2: 2 x THH2400AA
Proposed Outdoor Area layout
HEATSTRIP® electric heaters produce radiant heat which heats objects rather than the air. Therefore, it is imperative that objects to be heated (ie. people), are within the direct radiant footprint of the heater.
The diagram to the left shows the radiant footprint of HEATSTRIP® Classic with Remote and App, and is an approximate guide based on a fully enclosed outdoor environment.
This diagram shows that the maximum heat output is found directly under the heater, and the temperature decreases as you move away from the heater. It highlights the importance of maintaining recommended mounting heights, and if possible, positioning the heater directly above the area to be heated.
Note that the temperature is the same for all 4 models, regardless of the wattage. However, as the size increases and the length of the unit increases, the radiant footprint will be longer.
The below diagrams show the approximate heating area for each model, based on both an indoor and outdoor enclosed environment, with direct overhead mounting. The radiant footprint is reduced in angled, wall mounted installations.
General recommendations for HEATSTRIP® Classic with Remote and App control:
Ideal mounting height: 2.3m to 2.5m. Maximum is 2.7m in a fully protected/enclosed outdoor environment.
Ideal mounting location: ceiling mounted, directly above area to be heated (eg. above a table)
Based on the radiant footprint of the previous page, for a protected outdoor area, a minimum of 500W/m2 is re-
quired. For indoor spot heating, a minimum heating capacity of 400W/m2 is recommended.
The table below outlines the coverage of each HEATSTRIP® Classic with Remote and App control model based
on 3 different scenarios with direct overhead mounting. For example, for an outdoor area that is protected from prevailing winds by walls, café blinds etc, Model THH2400AA will cover 4.8m2 . Model THH3200AA will cover 6.4m2.
For angled wall mounting applications, the coverage is reduced by up to 40%.

For the majority of outdoor applications, the most effective method is to spot heat a table or similar area. The diagrams below provide an easy selection guide for the approximate model and quantity of heaters required to heat common residential table settings.
Selections are based on HEATSTRIP® Classic with Remote and App being mounted at 2.4m from the floor in a fully enclosed undercover outdoor area.

The ideal mounting position for the HEATSTRIP® Classic with Remote and App is on the ceiling directly above the area to be heated. If this is not possible, HEATSTRIP® can be mounted on a wall and angled downwards. In this situation, ensure the mounting height is in the range of 2.1m to 2.7m and the table is within 2.5m of the wall.
For mounting heights more than 2.7m, we recommend the use of the optional accessories to reduce the height of the heater to 2.3m--2.5 m. This will increase the effectiveness of your HEATSTRIP®. Refer to the Mounting Accessory section for more information.
Electrical connections/GPO's should not be located at the back of the heater. They should be located outside the physical footprint of the units to minimize heat build-up behind the units. If the heater is to be mounted on an incline (e.g. vaulted ceiling), ensure the electrical connection is located at the lowest point of the heater.
The heating surface must never be directed toward the ceiling
Installation location -- the diagrams below provide the minimum recommended clearances in mm.
WARNING: This heater is not equipped with a device to control the room temperature. Do not use this heater in small rooms when they are occupied by persons not capable of leaving the room on their own, unless constant supervision is provided.

The HEATSTRIP® Classic is made from durable materials, however regular care and maintenance of your heater will help prolong the life of the heater.
It is recommended that you hose down the heater and with a soft cloth gently wipe the surfaces of the heater with a mild detergent to remove the built up contaminants from the environment. Then rinse all detergent off the heater. All chemicals in the atmosphere including cigarette smoke, pollution etc. will tarnish the surface of the heater. In this case, additional cleaning and maintenance may be required. Carrying out the cleaning process at least every three months will reduce the amount of build up and keep the Heatstrip in good condition. If the heater is in a corrosive environment eg. salt spray, we recommend that you clean your heater with a light spray of fresh water every week. After cleaning, turn the heater on for 20 minutes to dry any water residue and prevent water staining. Before cleaning or inspection activity, the heater must be switched off and cooled down completely. Do not use any abrasive materials or products to clean the heater, this includes solvents, citrus based cleaners or other harsh cleaning products.
When handling the heater, ensure that your hands are clean or that you use clean gloves as grease or dirt can mark the surface of the heater.
Do not use high pressure water to clean heaters, light water spray only.
