For people living in the Burlington area, bed bugs have become a serious problem. Hundreds of home-owners are being exposed to these nasty bloodsuckers each and every day. Over the years a number of new methods for killing bed bugs have come to the forefront. The most promising is Heat. Bed bug heat treatment is considered to be the most effective and safe treatment to prevent bed bugs from home permanently.
In heat treatment, the air is warmed up to the point where it spreads throughout the home in every little crack or dark corner where the bugs hide and literally cook them. Apart from killing the bedbugs, the heat also kills the bed bug eggs to prevent further infestation.
Types of Bed Bug Heat Treatments
There are three different types of heat treatments that are used to exterminate bed bugs, including Propane, Electric and Heat Transfer Fluid
Let's have a look at each one's benefits and drawbacks.
The propane based system is the very first bed bug treatment introduced. This technique utilizes a truck that is parked outside the home. Propane burns inside the truck and the associated hot air is being transferred into the home through a large flexible duct. Significant air loss occurs during the transmission of the air. Additionally, there is only one source through which the air comes out. Thus, the duct, which is inefficient may damage the valuables inside your home.
In the electric treatment, the hot air is generated with the help of electric heaters. The technicians need to move the actual source of the heat inside the home where there is a bed bug infestation. Heat treatment is not that much popular as it involves moving high-voltage units and power lines into the home. This poses an obvious risk of fire. In addition, this treatment takes much longer to heat the space to ensure that the bed bugs are effectively killed.
Heat Transfer Fluid
Heat Transfer System is the latest and most modern heat treatment for killing bed bugs. In this system, a simple viscous fluid is heated by two high-power burners. Then, through the lines, the fluid is transferred to the heat transfer units that are placed inside the house. Once the hot fluid goes into the heat exchanger, a built-in fan spreads the heat throughout the area. This treatment not only kills the bed bugs, but also their eggs. The technicians also maintain the temperature to ensure that there is no bed bug left.
All the above mentioned techniques are popular, but Heat Transfer Fluid is the latest and widely used technique.
