Fir Tree

The best type of gas for this heater is Propane (red canister), Butane (blue canister) will freeze in winter. Please note both Propane and Butane are often referred to as LPG.


This new model fills a gap in the market for a small gas heater that is British made and reliable yet at a more affordable price.

Although gas heaters do exist on the market already that are under £100, they are usually Chinese made. This model is British made by the well respected Hotbox factory in Halifax, and is backed by a full 12 month guarantee.
Light the pilot light and set the thermostat to your desired temperature. The heater will turn on the full burner, whenever the the thermostat turns it on. We also recommend that you use a max/ min thermometer in conjunction to help get your thermostat set just right - for effiicent gas usage.

Q. I bought a similar one to this 2 years ago and was fine until this years minus 10 and lower, the burner would burn and then go out and so ruined my cuttings! How do I know this won't do the same? - Thank you.

A. Setting the Thermostat to MAXIMUM would usually prevent the burner going out. Extreme temperatures, such as those experienced in December 2010 do cause problems for gardeners. Most of our heaters hav e frost-free guide (ie. This heater will keep a 6'x8' building frost-free (above 5C)). This is based on the average british coldest temperature of -0.2 Centigrade. Should temperatures be looking to go to -10 Centigrade again then I would recommend doubling the output (ie. if 1.5kW is the advertised frost-free, then ensure that you have 3kW) to ensure that your plants remain happy.

Q. hi folks,i was just wondering the dimensions of this unit,thanks

A. Size: 14? x 7? x 21? high / 35.5cm x 18cm x 53cm

Q. Hi, can you tell me if this heater (Product Code 1286) comes with a pipe and regulator

A. The pipe & regulator for the Hotbox Value Propane heater 1.5kW cost £14.99 extra.

Average rating: (4.8)

by Linda Peacock

Received this heater when expected. It was well packaged and exactly what we wanted It is keeping my greenhouse frost free ( live in the North) and so far no problems. I haven't had any experience with propane heaters but this one is of good quality and works well. Great product. I wouldn't hesitate to order from The Greenhouse People again.

by Gail Silverman

I am a new greenhouse owner and am extremely pleased with this heater. I have only needed to have the pilot light on and it keeps the greenhouse frost free. I know we haven't had much frost this year in the southeast but I am sure it will be perfect for my 6 x 6 Elite Craftsman. I would recommend this to anyone especially as my first foray into heating proved very annoying as I had to completely strip out everything including seedlings and shade material to wash off soot from a paraffin heater!
