Portable 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. The Titan 800 is the original bed bug and insect heater. GreenTech Heat has designed all our portable heaters to kill insect pests, and not appropriated equipment from other markets and uses. A recent independent analysis reports that the GreenTech Heat Titan 800 is the most powerful portable, propane bedbug heater available.
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.
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 450 and Titan 800. 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.

GreenTech Heat Solution’s state-of-the-art technology allows you to achieve a proven thermal kill for bed bugs. Our laboratory-tested and EPA-approved technology creates heat convection currents which transfer energy throughout the room. Heated air molecules transfer their energy into every surface of the room, allowing all the contents of the room to reach a minimum of 140°F. Developed and perfected by Michael R. Linford PhD, our equipment is designed to be a complete bed bug heat treatment system without sacrificing safety, quality, or capability. We understand that equipment alone will not achieve a 100% kill of your infestation. That’s why we include our Flash video training with every package and many of our packages include our Master Heat Technician Certification training program.
Every electric heat package includes free shipping to the Contiguous US and Canada.
Most people consider only the monetary component of a treatment’s cost. Inconvenience, collateral toxicity, and length of treatment should all be considered when calculating a total cost. While a pesticidal treatment may initially appear less expensive, the bed bugs will remain with you for several weeks to a month or more. The table above will help you identify some of the hidden considerations and costs of pesticidal treatments as compared with treating with GreenTech Heat equipment.
Failure to achieve a 100% kill is a guaranteed reinfestation. A single bed bug can become a large infestation if left untreated. One pregnant bed bug can turn into 20 bed bugs after 6 weeks. Those 20 bed bugs will become 100 bed bugs in 12 weeks; the 100 bed bugs will become 425 bed bugs in 16 weeks, and finally, those 425 bed bugs will become an infestation of over 13,000 in just 6 months! Not only do bed bugs multiply rapidly, but they can also live for 8 months or more without food.
