Electric Radiators

Electric radiators are an excellent solution for heating. Whether your electricity is generated using fossil fuels or sustainable resources, they work just as well. Our range provides an economical and effective electric heating system. They offer quality, reliability, and easy installations with realistic running costs. Available as free standing or wall mounted, traditional to electric designer models, our range of luxury low cost stylish electric heaters offer an unrivaled level of quality and comfort for your home heating.

Heater Shop offers a wide range of energy efficient electric radiators from well-known brands to heat your home. Our range of products include Rointe, Dimplex and Haverland. Our models will suit households with all types of rooms and budgets.

Our heating solutions range from dry ceramic and aluminium core electric heaters to gel or oil filled. Many of the products offer features such as timers and thermostats. If you need help choosing a size then use our heating calculator or call us on 01473 276686 and one of our technical team will be happy to help you.

Savings and energy efficiency

Electric currently costs more than gas. However, as you can control electric more precisely with the use of thermostats and timers, in the long run, electric can work out to be the cheaper option over gas central heating. Evolving technology such as smart heating will make this type of heating more cost effective to run as the technology will start to understand your house needs and react instantly to ensure even less heat wastage to give you peace of mind.

Choosing the best size for your home

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.

Difference between oil-filled, gel-filled and dry

This depends on the size, purpose and usage of the room in which it is being installed in.

A dry ceramic core and dry aluminium core radiator will heat up quickly and efficiently, ensuring no heat energy is wasted when you do not need it.

An oil-filled radiator 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 over oil filled.

A gel-filled radiator is quite like an oil filled radiator although it uses a thermodynamic gel rather than oil for greater efficiency.

Benefits

  • Ability to control each heater in your house separately
  • Highly accurate thermostats
  • 100% efficient meaning all electricity used is turned into heat
  • No heat loss from plumbing such as pipes and boilers
  • No maintenance is required
  • Low cost installation

Are they expensive to use?

As with other types of heating, they can be expensive if not used properly. 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. For this reason, even though electric currently costs more than gas, electric heating can be just as cost effective, if not better than other heating methods.

What size do I need?

This mainly depends on the size of your room as that will dictate how much power is needed from a heater to keep the room warm. There are a few other factors to consider when working out what size heater you need such as the insulation in your home, whether you have north facing walls and which part of the country you live in. However, to make this easy, you can use our room calculator. Alternatively, all of our products shows a "heats up to" figure which shows which size room that particular product will heat up to. If you are still unsure, call us on 01473 276686 and we'll be happy to help you.

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

The main difference between heaters and electric radiators is that radiators heat through radiation, very similar to how an open fire would heat your home whereas heaters produce heat through convection methods which usually entails using hot elements to create and send hot air around the room.

If you aren’t sure which product would be suitable for your household or commercial property, our expert team will be happy to provide you with more information and offer guidance to ensure you get the most effective and efficient heating for your needs.

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.

Please see our Which Electric Radiator should I choose? Gel filled? Oil filled? or Dry? article for further information.

Electrorad AF05 Aeroflow - Electric Radiator, 2000W

This is the second Aeroflow I’ve bought from the Heater shop. They are not cheap - but oh my are they effective! Bearing in mind the rising cost of electricity….and I’m all electric… its been a constant battle to be as warm as possible for as less as possible. The maths is simple really - a KW in is a KW out! But some heaters don’t feel like that. These rads are easy to programme and to alter on a manual basis. They have made a big difference to the comfort of my apartment. I bought this one with the castors (rads are very heavy - the instruction manual recommends putting them on an outside wall) my previous one is wall mounted and wired into a spur socket.
