ZappBug Room Bed Bug Heater
Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
The ZappBug Room is enormous. It has over 280 cubic feet of internal space - enough to fit 50 PackTites. If you'e not storing PackTites, the Room is spacious enough to treat your sofa, mattress, bed frame, and just about anything else in your home that isn't nailed down.
This heater is a game-changer for professionals and homeowners alike. Instead of having to decide what to bag, what to steam, what to heat, and what to throw away, the process of killing bed bugs in your belongings can now be one step. Just assemble the Room, pack your furniture and belongings into it, and start the timer.
Due to its size, the Room isn't quite as easy to set up as its siblings, the ZappBug Oven and the compact ZappBug Heater. That's not to say that it's suddenly this big job to get a Room up and running - there are just more materials involved, so it will take a little bit longer.
To ensure a fast and thorough heatup, the Room uses four fan heaters, each attached to their own timer. The included wireless thermometer has three probes that can be placed in multiple parts of the heating space, so you can make sure that all of the contents are reaching the ideal temperature. Once they do hit that lethal heat level, a recirculation fan improves the convection within the Room, which speeds up the treatment time.
Like the other heaters in the new ZappBug family, the Room is insulated for maximum efficiency and safety, and breaks down for easy storage. The tent uses a frame for support, and foam blocks are included to help improve circulation for larger items like furniture. For best results, consider stacking small belongings on racks or some other organizer. Also, make sure that you read the instructions thoroughly, and that everything you put into the Room can be safely heated over 120 degrees.
The ZappBug Room is by far the largest bed bug heater on the market. With 285 cubic feet of internal space, the Room is over 12 times larger than the ZappBug Oven and 50 times more spacious than the PackTite! There is more than enough room for everything in your room, including your mattress, bed frame, sofa, closet contents, and other personal belongings.
Heat treatments are a safe and effective alternative to spraying your belongings with chemicals. A bed bug heater can treat large items, or many small items, quickly and thoroughly by safely heating them to a lethal temperature. This saves time spent checking each and every item, and saves money that may otherwise be spent replacing infested items that are thrown out.
Bed bugs can hide almost anywhere a credit card can fit. That means they could be camping out in your clothes, shoes, books, and just about any other personal belongings you have in your home.
You can start treating these items by drying your clothes on the highest heat settings possible. Items that can't be thrown in the laundry can be treated with the ZappBug heater.
ZappBug is extremely easy to use. Simply set it up, load it with items and press the "on" switch on the included Belkin timer (making sure that eight hours is selected on the timer). The included timer automatically shuts off the heater when the treatment cycle is done.
