Default Super Ser Gas Heaters

Does anyone know if Super Sers (the ones which use Calor bottled gas) are still being sold and if so where in the Dublin area?

Woodies have them, I got a catalogue yesterday.

A Calor Superser Radiant Gas Heater, max heat 4.2kw and works with Butane costs €134.99

Woodies also allows you to buy online, 72 hour delivery anywhere in Ireland is €15

The new ones are safe. The manfacturers instructions must of course be followed.
They all have a flame lift devise, which operates if the oxygen levels reduced and avoid the possiblity of levels of carbon monoxide building up. You do need to ensure the gas bottle is ok,

The termocouple works where the flame goes out and shuts off the gas.

They are fast to heat a room. As with all gas appliances, one needs good ventilation

I bought one of them from Woodies to boost my BER rating for my flat.

Cost me 134.

No its just the way the BER software is set up.

If you put your gas heater as your primary source of heating then the software will give you a better rating.

I think Mum uses hers for about 2 hours per day - on one bar setting and it lasts about a month.

Super Sers really remind me of growing up in the 1980s. I used to think the bars were made from the same material on the space shuttle...
