Choose The Right Heater

Care and Cleaning

During season care:

  • Always unplug the heater before cleaning.
  • Clean the unit with a soft cloth moistened in a mild soap solution.
  • NEVER use abrasive or flammable solvents to clean the unit. Please be cautious near the heating elements.
  • After cleaning, be sure to completely dry the unit with a cloth or towel.
  • TIP: Over time, dust may accumulate on the grills. This can be removed by wiping the unit with a damp cloth.
  • Always unplug unit and allow cooling prior to cleaning.
  • Parabolic Heater: To clean parabolic reflector dish, we recommend the use of a thin brush. This brush can be inserted through the front grill in order to move any dust or debris to the lower edge of the reflector dish. DO NOT REMOVE THE GRILL. Use a vacuum to remove dust or debris from the outer edge of the reflector dish.

After season care:

  • Store heater in a cool, dry location.
  • Bionaire® brand experts recommend that you store the unit in its original carton.
