Ensure Ventilation is in Place for Portable Gas Heaters

Gas bayonet installation for portable heaters is becoming more common, as people often move the heater to where they need it during winter and then store it away during the warmer months. 

Please keep in mind that when using portable gas heaters, you need to consider appropriate ventilation, just as you would expect with a flued gas heater. It is often a requirement by law that any room (especially small rooms) using a gas heater must have a low vent and high vent for ventilation of unburnt gases. 

Ventilation is also needed so fresh oxygen can replace any carbon monoxide that may come from burning gas heaters. 

We recommend all ventilation requirements should be read clearly and understood before purchasing a portable space heater or unflued gas heater. As such, outdoor gas heaters should never operate indoors as they can create dangerous carbon monoxide.


A female bayonet fitting can be installed on the wall or the floor. Indoor gas appliances can be quickly connected to your home’s gas supply using the female fitting. Many appliances, such as stoves or portable heaters, run on gas, typically less expensive than electricity. 

The end of the gas bayonet hose is where you’ll find the male fitting. It plugs into the fixed female bayonet wall socket fitting in a clockwise direction to connect to the gas supply.

The heater is connected to the gas supply by a brass push-and-twist-to-lock connection. The female connection is a gas bayonet wall socket connecting the heaters to an external gas supply (gas meter or gas bottles) with the male hose.

Portable gas heaters are the most popular kind of heaters in Australia, for example, top brands like the Rinnai Avenger. The hose connects the heater bayonet to your home’s gas supply. The gas fitting uses a brass push and clockwise twist-to-lock fitting.

A portable gas heater bayonet connection fitting has both a female wall socket fitting and a male hose fitting that connect with a push and clockwise twist.
