Fan Heaters

Fan heaters work by forcing air across an element to heat the ambient air in a given space. The more air that passes across the heating element, the quicker the temperature will rise in that area.

As the heat rises the heated air naturally flows upwards. Fan Heaters can therefore be mounted very low to the ground, maximising the effect of warm air, or the effect can be offset by positioning of fan heaters at a higher mounting level blowing down into the room and throwing this air back towards ground level.

Stiebel Eltron CK 20 2000W Trend LCD Quick Response Heater 275mm

Good heater, effective, looks good, and easy to instal (but you'll need a plug if you aren't going to hardwire it in).

We took some time to experiment with electric space heaters, but found that almost all are more suited for smaller rooms without high ceilings. In our setting the heat simply goes straight up to a high ceiling instead of spreading across the room. So a low level/horizontal fan effect is essential.

Many space heaters fitted with fans direct the air up towards the ceiling which in our case is a waste of effort. This is used in a medium sized conservatory (lots of glass and high ceiling), and on its own on a cold winter day (0-5 degrees celsius) it struggles to warm the room to a comfortable level (it's asking an awful lot to warm such a volume of air from zero to 19-20 degrees), so we use an extra small (horizontal) fan heater until it reaches a reasonable temperature. We're still experimenting, but purely from an aesthetic viewpoint we'll probably get another of this model heater, to have effective heating instead of using a dinky little extra portable fan heater to assist the initial warm up.

Easy to operate but confusing to program for automatically timed operation (poorly prepared, incomplete and ambiguous instructions provided). This is the only reason for the 4 star rating, otherwise it would be 5.

Note, though, that you can google detailed and useful instructions to help with this problem, though these should come with the product in the first place!

As it turns out, we had intended to program it for specific times of the day, but it works out easier, and possibly cheaper, if we just turn the heater/s on about 15-20 minutes before we want to use the room. That's very simple to do, and to set the wanted temperature.

It replaced the similar model which he'd a broken switch.
The cord attached to the with is fixed to a plastic component which
snapped in two. Not mendable by me
