Electric and Propane Heat Treatment Packages Kill Bed Bugs
The bed bug heater begins killing in less than 15 minutes
Successful bed bug heat treatments utilize convected, heated air, directed through and around the treatment area, so the heat penetrates all the objects in the room, bringing them to lethal temperatures. GreenTech Heat has designed all our heaters to kill insect pests, and not appropriated equipment from other markets and uses.
Each of our heat treatment packages includes everything a crew needs to successfully treat a typical treatment area in a day. GreenTech Heat offers two types of heat packages: electric and propane. All of our packages include our flash video training at no additional cost.

Electric heat packages are discreet and easy to set up for areas between 400 and 600 square feet per heater and fan. The electric heat treatment system is a “closed” system which means it recycles the heated air inside the structure, through the intake port, over the heating coils, and out into the treatment area. Each time air passes through the heater it imparts more energy into the air, producing higher temperatures. The GreenTech Heat electric heaters have thermal regulator switches and can be set up in a treatment area and left to operate without constant supervision by a technician. You can set up your treatment area, close the door and check on the treatment at a later time or monitor the heat levels remotely. Treatments with ePro heaters commonly use the portable Power Station or the PTAC Power Converter for tapping into 240v or a/c systems. The ePro 400 hotel heater has an integrated cord to plug directly into a hotel's PTAC outlet. We have designed these heaters to operate without requiring a generator.
Electric packages are appropriate for treating the following situations:
- hotel/motel rooms
- retirement homes
- DIY and do-it-yourself treatments
- dorms/student housing
- pest control
Each heater comes standard with the appropriate number of power cords. All GreenTech Heat electric heaters come with a 2-year repair or replace warranty. Electric bed bug heat packages priced $1999 and up include our exclusive Master Heat Technician Certification at no additional cost. All electric heat bedbug packages include free shipping.
Titan portable direct-fired propane heaters are the most powerful heaters for GreenTech Heat treatments and will typically treat a given area in half the time of electric equipment. GreenTech Heat offers packages built around two propane heat systems: the Titan 250 and Titan 500. Both heaters are made in the USA.
Propane heaters are typically operated outside the treatment area and the energy from the propane heating unit is ducted into the room from outside the building. Because of the amount of energy and heat produced by propane heaters, a technician must always be present to monitor the heater and the treatment area. Propane systems require a propane tank and hoses.
Propane heaters achieve lethal thermal temperature faster than electric units and will take less time to perform a treatment. Bed bug heat treatments with propane heaters often reduce the ability for bed bugs and other insects to migrate out of the heating zone during the treatment. Direct-fired gas heaters are effective for treatment of all insects and are efficacious for all life cycle stages. The Titan heaters also raise interior and exterior wall temperatures to lethal levels for wood destroying pests like termites.
Propane packages are appropriate for treating the following situations:
