Oil filled radiators have long been one of the most popular types of heating for the home. They are efficient and available in a wide range of sizes and styles. All our oil filled radiator heaters are maintenance free and require no servicing. This means they are hassle-free and a great alternative to gas central heating.
How Do Oil Filled Electric Radiators Work?
They heat up thermal fluid, or oil, which then transfers the heat into the room to warm the surrounding air. It takes a little longer to heat up oil than it does to heat wire elements, but oil filled electric radiators are excellent at retaining heat. As the heat is retained for longer, less energy will be needed to heat up your room over a longer period. Once you have switched off your radiator, the product will still release warm air into the room as they are designed to cool slowly.
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.

Portable Oil Filled Radiators
Out portable models are easy to move and feature carry handles. They are great for small sized rooms and can be set to your desired temperature. They offer various safety features including overheat protection and distribute heat evenly. With various power settings a fin oil filled radiator is a great portable heater option.
Oil filled radiator with timers are efficient for many reasons. One of these is because of the improved heat retention that oil gives. Wall mounted oil filled radiators are more efficient for the following reasons:
- Advanced programming - Allows you to adjust the heat setting and create heating schedules for every room in your home. This means that the rooms you use most often, can be heated for longer. The rooms can also be heated at higher temperatures than rooms that you don't use as often.
- Precise thermostats which reduces overheating in the home - Because the adjustable thermostats are so precise, your rooms do not get overheated. This means that energy is not wasted. Thermostats are on each radiator and not the house as a whole, so even less energy is wasted.
- Heat retention properties of oil are better - Heat is output for a longer rate with oil. They also produce heat after the product has stopped using electricity
Overall, they are a good choice for long term heating. Running costs are low, proving to be a cost effective choice. Suitable for large spaces and small, these are a perfect example of energy efficient electric radiators.
Are They Easy To Install?
Yes they are easy to install. Many of our products come with installation guides and wall templates. This allows for easy DIY installation. However, we would always advise that you use a qualified electrician if you are uncomfortable with DIY or if you are planning to hardwire the unit. Most portable oil filled radiators will come with a plug supplied so will simply need to be plugged into a wall.

Frequently asked questions
Whats the difference between Oil filled radiators, Gel filled radiators, and Dry heaters?
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.
