Due to popular demand we have compiled a summary of all Rointe Kyros Electric radiator sizes for quick comparison. These include the standard Rointe Kyros electric radiators and the low profile Rointe Kyros electric conservatory radiators.
Rointe Kyros Electric Radiator Sizes
All of the standard Kyros radiators are a standard 580mm in height and 98mm in depth. They are designed to be bracket mounted - therefore the depth after mounting is a consistent 120mm.
- The KRI0330RAD 3 Element Electric Radiator with 330 watts is the lowest in the range - mostly used in conjunction with another electric radiator, or a very small study/ utility room up to 3m²
- The KRI0550RAD 5 Element Electric Radiator with 550 watts is the next size up in the range - this is generally used for small rooms or used in conjunction with another electric radiator to give optimum heating. However on its on it can heat a room up to 5m².
- The KRI0770RAD 7 Element Electric Radiator with 770 watts is the low to mid in the range - often used in a small to medium sized rooms up to 7m². but often supports another electric radiator too
- The KRI0990RAD 9 Element Electric Radiator with 990 watts is the middle of the range - used in medium sized rooms up to 9m²
- The KRI1210RAD3 11 Element Electric Radiator with 1210 watts is the medium to high in the range - rooms up to 12m²
- The KRI1430RAD 13 Element Electric Radiator with 1430 watts is the second largest in the range - rooms up to 14m²
- The KRI1600RAD 15 Element Electric Radiator with 1600 watts is the highest in the range - ideal for very large rooms up to 16m²
Rointe Kyros Conservatory Electric Radiator Sizes
The Kyros conservatory radiators are a standard 420mm high - for low-level walls and 98mm in depth. They are designed to be bracket mounted - therefore the depth after mounting is a consistent 120mm.
- The KRI1100RADC2 11 Element Conservatory Electric Radiator with 1100 watts ideal for rooms up to 11m²
- The KRI1300RADC2 13 Element Conservatory Electric Radiator with 1300 watts ideal for rooms up to 13m²
- The KRI1500RADC2 15 Element Conservatory Electric Radiator with 1500 watts ideal for rooms up to 15m²
Using our handy room size calculator we can calculate which electric radiator(s) is most suitable for the space in which you require to heat.
What will affect the size of my chosen radiator?
Insulation - how well your properly is insulated will have big impact on the wattage required for the rooms in your home. A poorly insulated room will theoretically lose more heat, requiring a larger wattage to compensate for the extra heat loss. It is recommended that where possible insulation such as double glazing, cavity wall insulation and loft insulation is overhauled to save money on your electricity bills long-term.
Ceiling height of the room - the average ceiling height is 3.5 meters. In a Victorian property for example ceilings are higher and heat loss calculations will need to be adjusted to a factor of 1.25 meaning the electric radiators will need to be 25% more powerful to offset the height and added heat loss. Again, for a vaulted ceiling the calculations will be amended to a factor of 1.5 so, electric radiators will need to be 50% more powerful than a standard 3.5 meter ceiling.
Room type - all rooms are different and have different uses and/or features affecting heat loss;
- A kitchen needs to adapt to a constantly changing environment, as it is used as a social room with poor insulation in comparison to a bedroom or living room.
- A bathroom will have stringent waterproofing standards and will be predominantly heated towel rails used rather than electric radiators
- A conservatory will have a very different heat loss and, regulations that need to be adhered to. Dwarf or low-level wall will stipulate the type of radiator used as they need to be low in height and more powerful than the standard room electric radiator. Specialist conservatory electric radiators should be used in this instance.
The use of multiple radiators - you do not have to have just one radiator, if you have sufficient space, even with a small room as long as the wattage is correct multiple electric radiators can be used. A room is able to heat up much faster if multiple radiators are used.
