A blower or heater is very useful instrument for keeping your home comfortable in the winter season.
There is a red-hot metal rod or ceramic core in most heaters. The air moves above the “core” heat, and gushes to increase room temperature. However, hot metal burned, drying water in the air. So what you get from heater, basically, is hot air, super dry. Regardless of clear side effects such as drying your skin, this heater also burns oxygen from the air.
Even people who don’t have an asthma problem, often experience sleepiness, nausea and headaches in the room with conventional heaters. Does it make a bad man heater? Yes – if you use the wrong type. (The term “blower” is everyday in Indian – what most people rather not call as “blower” is actually a convention heater.) Apart from conventional heating, halogen heater, which uses halogen lamp radiation to heat space, also ideas the bad one.
This heater issued chemicals that might enter the hallway of your breathing and play chaos with your inside, especially if you suffer from asthma or allergies. The heater containing oil is a decent choice for patients with respiratory problems, although they are around 10 times more expensive than the most basic rod heaters. The heater filled with oil has a pipe filled with oil. The air doesn’t dry out because it passes hot liquid oil to absorb heat. Oil (even when hot) does not dry air like a convection heater.
How heaters modify air in your room
If you suffer from respiratory complaints, avoid ordinary heaters. People who suffer from bronchitis and sinusitis are basically allergic vulnerable. In cases of patients like that, mucus will accumulate in the lungs which cause coughing and sneezing. Bad heaters for those who are vulnerable to allergies because they can cause mucus to dry up and remain in the body.
If phlegm is drying inside, it can cause lungs and infected sinuses, which require you to take antibiotics, ‘explain Dr. Balbir Singh Gandhi, ENT and CEO specialists, Sukhmani Hospital, Delhi. ‘If allergies are vulnerable, use the heater containing oil. If you have to use an ordinary heater, turn it off after a few minutes. The best is to get a humidifier if you are vulnerable to bronchitis or sinusitis. Steam walks through a pipe as a heating system will still be under control, ‘Recommend Dr. Gandhi.
Problem with Gas heaters
Central heating flowing on gas is all anger abroad. Or at least that, until people begin to wake up with the fact that they can damage your health, and cause permanent damage to the lungs of children. It was found that children who live in homes that use LPG heaters have a much higher incident of asthma and suffer from symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, wheezing and lung damage. Carbon monoxide, provided by this heater, mainly affects children and parents. LPG gas heater is a new concept here, but it has been known to release gas and hazardous chemicals into the atmosphere. Some gas heaters, especially the portable, are “non-fiber” gas heaters, which means that they do not have a chimney or ventilation to release the LPG bye products that are burned to produce heat. The gas heater also releases the carbon monoxide killer, which you will breathe, if you sit in a room heated by the LPG heater.
The Australian Government Agency found that when the gas heater was unpleasant to use, they pushed the levels of nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide at home compared to outside air. Smoke nitrogen dioxide is associated with worse and more frequent asthma attacks, lung inflammation and the risk of higher lung infections. Australia LPG and the British LPG Association showed that heaters were poured (with ventilation to release a by-product of combustion gas) used in homes if residents are diagnosed with all kinds of respiratory problems. Fire warning! If you are not allergic or asthma, ordinary heaters are just fine for one or two months in the year when it’s too cold.
Take extra precautions if you have children at home. The following points need to be stored in your mind.
• Heaters and blowers tend to dry moisture in the air. This can, in turn, dry your baby’s skin and nose. In extreme dry air conditions can cause itchy and nose skin.
• To prevent air drying, you can peace your room with a steamer or moisturizer according to your needs. Several times save only a bowl of water in the same room where the heater runs, helps maintain the level of moisture. Make sure the water bowl is stored at a safe distance from the heater or electrical point.
• Take care so that heaters are just as far as making room temperature comfortable. You can use the thermostat to keep the temperature so the room is not too hot. If the heater is on a very long setting too long, your baby might be too hot.
• If there is a frequent power cut in your area, and blowers continue to enter and die consider to dress your baby in the layer. When the heater is in you can remove the layer. Add the layer when the heater is off, or when you get out of a warm room.
• Keep your heater out of your baby’s reach. Bright coil heaters may look like attractive toys for crawling babies. Most heaters become very hot when they are and can cause serious burns.
• Also, maintain heaters at a safe distance from your bed, baby beds, cabinets, carpets or your bookshelves. Make sure there are no flammable items that are close to heaters or blowers.
• Maintain your heater or blower as suggested in the instruction manual or the owner’s manufacturer. This can prevent damage that can lead to short circuits or release of toxic substances.
Oil heaters are better than electric heaters, coils, fans, kerosene and halogens because:
• Their surface does not heat up a lot.
• They can be used for a longer time.
• Unlike electric heaters, oil heaters cool slowly after turning off. This gives your baby to adjust to changes in atmospheric temperature.
1. Use the right industrial socket for heavy work heater.
2. Use the right cable and avoid using a small gauge cable for heating.
3. Take extra precautions and keep out of the reach of toddlers and small children.
4. Fix each electrical point that experiences a little short circuit from Blackishnesh, because it can cause electrical heat in your home.
5. Don’t forget to turn off your MCB when you get out of the house and if there is no one in your home.
6. Never put a heating under your blanket and cover it completely or the trapped heat might cause a fire.
In case of electric fire:
In the case of electric fire, don’t forget to turn off the MCB first. Don’t use water on an electric fire instead using CO2 Extingusher, Dry chemical powder extinguisher after disconnected from the power supply.
