Rating of the best heat guns



[ad_1]

If you need to quickly heat an industrial or domestic premises, the easiest way is to use a heat gun — a heater that transfers heat not due to convection, but by accelerating the heated air. This is one of the most efficient ways to heat a small or medium sized room.

When choosing a heat gun, the following criteria should be taken into account: what size room is to be heated, what are the power characteristics of the device itself and what is the nominal volume of air flow. However, priority should be given to the selection of a high-quality and durable model that can last a long time and without critical problems.

The best gas heat guns

Interskol TPG-10

Interskol TPG-10

The first place rightfully goes to the next representative of the Interskol company — the model of the gas heat gun Interskol TPG-10. It cannot be said that purely technically it surpasses all its competitors, however, in terms of reliability and protection, not a single presented model can compare with it. Possessing the potential for operational heating of 100 square meters of space, the gun produces up to 30 kW of thermal power. As security systems, it provides an auto-off function, overheating protection and improved thermal insulation of the case.

Summing up, I would like to note that Interskol TPG-10 is a typical industrial model of a heat gun with good technical and tread parameters, inexpensive and extremely easy to use. The last two characteristics are most highly valued by owners. The presence of piezo ignition and a fairly low fuel consumption (0.76 l / h) are also considered indisputable advantages of this model in many reviews.

Master BLP 17M

The main difference between this unit and others included in the top three is the output thermal power, which is 16 kW with the possibility of a smooth decrease to 10 kW. The thermal plant uses propane and butane as fuel, the consumption of which fluctuates around 1.16 kilograms per hour.

Theoretically, such a gun can heat industrial premises with an area of ​​​​up to 110-120 square meters — this is where its effectiveness will fully manifest itself. Judging by the reviews of the owners, the installation is economical, reliable and accurate assembly, and also has a balanced cost. When using a heat gun to maintain a comfortable temperature in garages and repair boxes (rooms where you often have to open the entrance gate), the Master BLP 17 M does an excellent job of heating about 300 m³ per hour.

BALLU BHG-10

BALLU BHG-10

Despite the general skepticism about devices of this caliber made in China, Ballu has gained considerable popularity around the world. In many ways, this success was facilitated by the production of heat guns, including the gas-fired thermal unit BALLU BHG-10, which took third place in our rating. This is a typical industrial model designed to heat a room of about 100 square meters. It differs from other contenders by the minimum consumption of gaseous fuel — 0.7 kilograms per hour with a maximum heating power of 10 kW. Only propane can be used as fuel here, which can be regarded as a minor drawback. However, in general, users are satisfied with the heat gun, and note stable operation throughout the entire operational period.

Advantages:

  • optimal fuel consumption;
  • attractive price;
  • heating area (about 100 m2);
