Smart Electric Radiators

The past few years have seen rapid advancements in technology, which has resulted in a massive increase in the number of products that have smart capability as well as an improvement in their overall quality. People aren't always clear about the distinction between smart and Wi-Fi, which results in a lot of confusion between the two. Your device must be able to connect to a Wi-Fi network in order for it to be considered Wi-Fi compatible. This could be to allow for downloads to update the firmware, or it could be to allow you to control it via an app installed on a device of some kind. Either way, it could be for either of these reasons. To be considered a "smart product," on the other hand, does not necessarily need to be connected to the internet. A product that is intelligent, has the ability to learn on its own, and is able to pick up on human tendencies, interpret the information, and then write new rules based on human behaviour is called a smart product. This characteristic of smart heating typically manifests itself when the heater begins to learn when you require heat and how much heat you require. In addition to this, it is able to determine when a window or door has been opened and adjust the temperature accordingly, thereby preventing the waste of both energy and money.

Conservatory Radiators

A conservatory is one of the most common additions that people make to their homes in the UK, and as a result, these rooms require adequate heating. However, because they typically have low walls followed by a lot of glass, it was difficult to attach a standard model to the structure. During this time period, conservatory radiators came into existence. They are able to generate the same amount of heat as standard models despite their wide and low form, but they have been designed to more easily fit inside a conservatory because of their shape. Have you given any thought to installing electric underfloor heating in your new conservatory, in the event that it has not yet been constructed? You can save even more space by not having to mount any of your heating system on the walls; instead, you could install it directly under the floor.

Vertical Electric Radiators

The fact that more and more people are starting to take an interest in interior design and are investing more time in their homes results in a new demand for a variety of different kinds of products. Vertical radiators are one of these options that have been considered. For many, many years, the only available options were your standard models in a variety of widths; however, as of recently, that choice has been figuratively and literally flipped on its head.

Installing one of these models in a home with a tall, narrow space that cannot be used for anything else is a good way to put that space to good use. Because of this, space will be made available in other areas, which can then be utilised for functions that are more functional.

Difference between oil-filled, gel-filled and dry electric radiators

This is something that is dependant on the sizes, purpose, and usage that will take place in the room where it will be installed.

Radiators with dry ceramic core and dry aluminium core will heat up rapidly and effectively, preventing any heat energy from being wasted when the radiator is not in use.

It will take an oil-filled radiator a little bit longer to heat the room, but it will keep the room warmer for a longer period of time. Oil-filled radiators are thought to be safer than dry ones because the air flow in dry radiators can be disrupted by dust; as a result, dry radiators have the potential to overheat, making them too hot for children and animals to touch. Low surface temperature dry electric radiators are available, and despite the fact that they are not widely available, they are an excellent choice for individuals who choose dry radiators over oil-filled ones.

A radiator that is filled with thermodynamic gel rather than oil in order to achieve greater efficiency is known as a gel-filled radiator. A gel-filled radiator is very similar to an oil-filled radiator.

Savings and energy efficiency

Gas is currently less expensive than electricity. Electric heating, on the other hand, can prove to be the more cost-effective choice in the long run when compared to gas central heating. This is due to the fact that electric heating can be controlled with greater precision through the utilisation of thermostats and timers. This type of heating will become more cost effective to run as new technology, such as smart heating, continues to advance. This is because the technology will start to understand the needs of your home and will respond instantly to ensure even less heat is wasted, thereby giving you peace of mind.

Choosing the best size for your home

Every one of our products includes a description that tells you how many square metres of space it can heat. If you are still unsure, you can use our room calculator, which will provide you with all the information you require based on the size of your room, which region of the country you live in, and which direction your property faces. After inputting a few details based on the information presented above, the calculator will provide you with a wattage, which will allow you to choose your items based on the wattage that is required for a room.

Benefits

  • Capability to exercise independent control over each of the heaters in your home
  • Extremely precise thermostats that are also 100 percent efficient, meaning that all of the electricity that is consumed is converted into heat
  • There is no heat loss from the plumbing, which includes the boilers and pipes.
  • No maintenance is required

What's the difference between electric heaters and electric radiators?

Radiators heat through radiation, very similarly to how an open fire would heat your home, whereas heaters produce heat through convection methods, which typically involve using hot heating elements to create and send hot air around the room. The primary distinction between heaters and electric radiators is that electric radiators heat through radiation.

If you aren't sure which product would be appropriate for your residential or commercial property, our knowledgeable team will be happy to provide you with additional information and offer guidance in order to make sure that you get the most effective and efficient heating for your requirements.

If you are looking for more traditional radiators, we also stock a range of central heating radiators.

Are they expensive to use?

In the same way that other kinds of heating can be pricey when not used properly, the same can be said for these if they aren't used effectively. The great thing about modern versions is that they have timers and thermostats, as well as the newer smart versions, which allows you to control your heating so that you only use it when you need it. The newer smart versions are even more advanced. Because of this, even though the cost of electric is currently higher than the cost of gas, it is possible for electric heating to be just as cost effective, if not better, than other methods of heating.

What size electric heater do I need?

This is primarily determined by the size of the room, as this will determine the amount of power that is required from a heater in order to keep the room at a comfortable temperature. When determining the size of heater you require, there are a few additional considerations to make, such as the amount of insulation already present in your home, the presence or absence of walls that face north, and the region of the country in which you currently reside. You can make this process much simpler by using our room calculator, which is available to you. Alternately, each of our products carries a figure labelled "heats up to," which indicates the maximum size of room that particular product is capable of heating. If you still have questions, feel free to contact us at this number: 01473 276686, and we will be happy to assist you.

Frequently asked questions

Most of our products comes with a fixing kit, which includes the brackets, plugs and screws. The majority of our products also come with an installation guide as well as a fixing template which allows you to measure exactly where screws and fixings need to be placed.

The application process is very simple however we do advise you have the product installed by an authorized professional installer if you are not comfortable with installing the product yourself.

Choosing the correct size radiator is crucial to the overall comfort and efficiency of your heating solution. Each of our product descriptions displays a measurement in m2 which represent the model’s recommended room floor area it can provide for.

To find out the size and wattage you require, first measure the space you intend to warm. You can do this be multiplying the length in meters with the width. Once you have this number you can enter it into our room calculator. The program will also ask you for some more information about your room including your location, orientation and insulation.

The room calculator will allocate you an appropriate minimal wattage which you can measure against the products in our collection, giving you a selection of products which are suitable for your needs.

Quite simply - oil filled, gel filled and dry electric radiators are all electrically efficient, but may be more appropriate for your installation depending on your specific requirements and the size of the room that needs heating.

Dry heaters are designed to heat up both quickly and efficiently whilst you are in the room, ensuring that no heat energy is wasted when you do not require it. An Oil or Gel filled heater on the other hand will take longer to heat up and release heat into a room, but will heat your room for longer even after being turned off as that retained heat is dispersed slower.

Oil filled radiators are also deemed to be safer than a dry electric radiator 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 pets in comparison to an oil filled radiator. There are specific low surface temperature electric radiators available for dry technology, although these are not widely available – they are a fantastic option for those who prefer the dry technology electric radiator.

Gel filled radiator is very similar to the oil filled radiator, but uses a thermodynamic gel compound as an alternative to oil for heat diffusion around the internals of the radiators metal construction.
