You wouldn’t know it was a diesel heater as the fuel injected combustion chamber is completely sealed, so no fumes can enter the area being heated.
Ignited at the touch of a switch, the FF95 features simple burner start/stop, self-cleaning fuel injection, and an automatic thermostat controlling 3-stage heating at 9.5kW, 5.49kW and 2.96kW outputs - burning diesel at 1.07, 0.62 & 0.33 liters per hour respectively.
A weekly timer allows for fully automatic operation, while a 50-watt continuous demand operates the ultra-quiet three-speed fan and controls.
Offered with a three-year general warranty and five years for the stainless-steel combustion chamber, the Laser is 92% efficient and produces huge volumes of real heat, at 30% to 50% less than the cost of conventional electric or gas heating.
With current electricity prices averaging 28c/kWh and diesel typically $1/litre, running costs amount to around 11 cents/kWh. The price of diesel would need to rise to $2.48L to equal the current kilowatt hour cost of on demand electricity (in most areas of NZ).
While warm air from heat pumps may be 38°C to 45°C, the hot air from the Laser is delivered at about 75°C, so the difference is no cold drafts, warm feet, and very low power consumption.
