Are electric radiators expensive to operate?
Electric currently costs more than gas. However, as you can control electric radiators more precisely with the use of thermostats and timers, in the long run, electric can work out to be the cheaper option. Evolving technology such as smart heating will make this type of heating even more efficient to run as the technology will start to understand your house needs and react instantly to ensure even less heat wastage.
What size electric radiator should I choose?
All our products show you what size room it heats up to in m2. If you are still unsure, you can you our room calculator which will provide you with all the details you need based on the size of your room, which area of the country you live in and which direction your property faces.
Simply enter a few details based on the above and the calculator will provide you with a wattage enabling you to choose your items based on the wattage needed for a room.
How do I install my electric radiator?
All our electric radiators are suitable for DIY installation as they come fitted with a 13amp plug along with fixtures and fittings. We also provide a fitting template which will show you exactly where to drill holes and place the screws. If you’d prefer a more professional installation, a qualified electrician will be able to do so quickly and easily.
Should I choose oil-filled, gel-filled or dry?
This depends on the size, purpose and usage of the room in which it is being installed in.
A dry heater will heat up quickly and efficiently, ensuring no heat energy is wasted when you do not need it. An oil-filled heater will take a bit longer to heat your room but will heat your room for longer.
Oil-filled is seen to be safer than dry, as air flow to dry radiators can be affected by dust - therefore they can overheat and can be hot to the touch for children and animals. Low surface temperature dry electric radiators are available and although not widely available – they’re a great option for those who prefer the dry electric radiator.
A gel-filled radiator is quite like an oil filled radiator although it uses a thermodynamic gel rather than oil for greater efficiency.
