    Gas fire



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    I was speaking to another old motorhome. He had told me he leaves his gas fire on low over the bad weather when not in use and has been doing this for years. I am very concerned by this. Is this a bad thing. I told him I use a small heater hooked up but he said he has lpg which he said is a cheaper option. Maybe so but..... Iíd appreciate someoneís imput on this.

    room sealed appliances designed to be left on when we sleep. so provided it is serviced correctly I don't see a problem

    Circumstances are really no different to going out and leaving our central heating on a timer

    I would think it would shorten the life of the gas fire and probably increase condensation . I remove soft furnishings open lockers and on a mild day open Hab door .best cure for condensation _ ventilation .

    Hi Molly, wear and tear on the fire would be the thermocouple and gauze perhaps on the burner, condensation is the by product of correclt burnt gas but as the appliance is room sealed that shouldn't really be an issue.

    re condensation in the living area good airflow and removing soft furnishings or at least pulling away from walls is good idea

    Thanks Channa.....cleared that up for me. I asked him about condensation and he said he didnít get any. Like you said I would think about wear and tear on the fire being the main issue.
