Gas radiator Einhell HGG 110 stainless steel

The Einhell HGG 110 Niro not only looks like a jet engine, It also heats up like this: With a powerful fan, which requires an additional power connection, it also heats up large halls and rough buildings very quickly.

As simple as the device is, so cheap is its price: Much cheaper you can not get a gas. For Flea market stall and construction site perfectly suitableHowever, something else is recommended for heating rooms, as the heat is given off with a strong directivity.

The consumption is with about 334 g / h but pleasingly low - even if it is even more efficient for the same performance.

Gas radiator stainless steel pyramid

Undoubtedly an eye-catcher: Who heats his garden with this blazing pyramid, sets a visual highlight with ancient Egyptian touch. Unfortunately, beautiful design has its price: With about 340 euros is the Gas radiator pyramid with the spectacular torch effect certainly not a bargain.

Worth the criticism, despite the beautiful design, is unfortunately the heat output: Im Compared to conventional, boring heater mushrooms if this is considerably lower, combustion by the open flame is not as efficient.

This expresses itself of course also in the gas consumption of 650 g / h - for 9.3 kW heating power no outstanding value.

What the security conscious, TÜV-spoiled German customers should also be a little disturbing is the lack of manufacturer's name, no reference to DIN standards and only a CE marking - in a device of this price, customers should expect more information.
