Electric heaters come in all shapes and sizes with a variety of power options but all of them have one thing in common which is that they all have a specific heating purpose. Whereas electric radiators are used for heating homes and offices, different types of heaters have different jobs to perform.
With so many products on offer and each of them offering different functionalities, here is a quick guide to each one and what they do.
Used the world over, these models are ideal for providing a temporary heat source. Being portable, they can be used practically anywhere, and you’ll often find them being used in portacabins on building sites or as an extra heat source in rooms that either take a long time to warm up or those that need an extra boost of heat. Whilst they are portable, many offer wall mounting options if required.
These models have an electrical element inside that heats up and when the fan blows air past it, the air heats up. Usually quite small, these models are excellent for personal use such as on or under a desk. You’ll often find these being used in workshops, offices, garages, and anywhere else where people need to be kept warm but there is no realistic way to heat the whole area. Other types such as plinth heaters and air curtains, which are discussed below in more detail, also make use of fan technology.
As you’ve probably guessed these are the kind you would find in bathrooms in offices, shopping centres, restaurants, and other such places that offer public bathrooms. Hygienic, easy to clean, and easy to maintain, they are the ideal choice for hand drying. With automatic models, infrared sensors, and high IP ratings, these are the safe and sensible option.
Whilst similar in looks to hand dryers, they are in fact heaters that push air downwards. Often used in shops above doorways or in bathrooms, they are ideal in areas where you want heat directed from above. Whilst not the largest range available, they are incredibly useful and well regarded when in use.
Mainly used for frost protection, protection from damp and mildew, and background heat, you’ll often find these in greenhouses, around large windows, in utility rooms, and outbuildings. Available in a range of lengths from 1ft to 6ft, they are simple to install, usually just plug and play.
When used at home, they are often found in the garden and offer a heat source for those late autumn and spring evenings when it’s nearly warm enough to sit outside. In commercial areas, you’ll find them used in pug gardens and outdoor restaurant areas. Providing infrared heat, they heat the people and objects that are directly in front of the heat source rather than trying to heat the air.
Whether being used at home or in a commercial setting, these have been developed for use outside. Making use of infrared and quartz technologies, these models offer direct heat and are available in a both wall mounted and freestanding varieties.
Being able to use your garden for longer throughout the year is what makes these models so attractive. Used in tandem with your seating areas, they offer a direct heat source to whoever is sitting in front of them. With wall mounted options that are permanently fixed to the wall or freestanding models that can be moved and repositioned as and when required.
Convection heaters warm the air around the element and as the air heats up, it rises meaning cooler air can then be heated. This causes a constant circulation as hot air keeps rising and cold air keeps being forced down to heat up. These models are quick to start working and you’ll find that they warm a space quite quickly. Often found as portable models, they can also be wall mounted when they are staying in a fixed location such as a garage or workshop.
Heating for industrial buildings can have a wide variety of requirements such as heating the whole building or heating individuals. Our products in this section focus on the individual or areas of the building that need to keep warmer. For example, personal heating options include workspace heaters as well as portable models whereas tubular heaters are perfect for keeping damp out of certain areas.
Halogen and Quartz is a type of heating technology that is most often used in models that are used outdoors or that are portable. This is because that offer direct heating which means that it does not heat the space around you such as other models, rather is heats whatever is placed directly in front of them. This is what makes then ideal for use in outdoor restaurant or in cold workshops.
Making use of fan technology, these will most often be found above doors in retail areas and office buildings. Whilst they do heat up space, they are often used as an additional source of heating which is one that is warmly welcomed by customers coming in form the cold.
Often used in large warehouses and industrial areas, these models are used for heating large areas of space. Using powerful fans and high heat settings, they blast air through an area in order to warm it up faster than the cold air can get in.
Perfect for maintaining correct temperatures, these models will keep your greenhouse at the optimum temperatures for your growing requirements. With built in thermostats to ensure temperatures are kept, it certainly beats relying on the Great British weather.
Another model which makes use of fan technology, it’s quite possible you have seen these many times without realising what they were. You’ll most often find these in kitchens, underneath the cupboards. Providing an extra heat source, they provide heat across the floor ensuring that your feet stay warm whilst in the kitchen area.
