What are the different types of electric radiators?
Smart Storage Heaters
As the name implies, these are a “smart” version of the traditional storage heater. Whilst they work in broadly the same way, the bricks are encased in a highly insulated compartment which allows the stored heat to be released at pre-set times and temperatures. This means smart storage heaters can still take advantage of Economy 7 tariffs but provide much more flexible usage.
Oil Filled Radiators
Although filled with oil, they are electrically heated and don’t actually involve burning any oil. All Greenvision’s oil-filled radiators have thermostats, smart timers and controls which help to reduce your energy bills. They use a mix of radiant and convected heat so are ideal in rooms where you need consistent warmth and quick heat up times.
Ceramic/ Clay Core Radiators
Ceramic / clay core radiators have core plates which stay hotter for longer and produce more radiant heat compared to standard electric radiators. Radiant heat gives you a warm and cosy feeling just like the heat produced by the sun. They can be installed in any room including bathrooms and conservatories and are very useful for rooms that have high ceilings or are poorly insulated.
What are the different types of electric heaters?
Panel Convector Heaters
Panel convector heaters use standard rate electricity and provide fairly constant heat when switched on. They are 100% efficient at point of use and are ideal for rooms that only need heating for short periods, although in compact, well insulated properties they can be used as a complete heating system.
Infrared is the direct transfer of heat from the heater to the object (you and the room around you) without heating the air. It gives the same feeling the sun gives us when our bodies absorb heat, making us feel warm and comfortable. Infrared heaters are a good energy efficient alternative to gas, oil and electric heating systems – perfect for reducing your fuel bills!
Low Surface Temperature Radiators
Low surface temperature radiators (LTS) are designed to comply with the NHS Estates Health Guidelines. With a maximum surface temperature of 43°C, they are perfect for care homes, children’s nurseries, schools and hospitals where a standard heater isn’t practical or safe. Perfect in a home environment for children’s bedrooms for example. They can be locked to prevent tampering.
Key features of our electric radiators
About Electric Radiators
Whilst gas is currently available at cheaper rates than electricity, some tariffs such as Economy 7 off peak are even comparable to gas prices, electric radiators can still work out cheaper to run than gas or oil central heating because they are extremely energy efficient and offer precision heating control.
Electric radiators allow you to control the heating in each room of your house separately. With programming available on all of our radiators you can set up a heating schedule for each room individually. If you temporarily don’t use a room, you can set this on a lower setting to come on less often or even switch it off. With full control over each electric radiator you are able to slim down your heating bills.
To heat your room effectively you will need to choose radiators with a high enough wattage to efficiently heat the space. You can refer to the Technical Specifications tab for each product for guidance (see the Heat up M2) Or if you need help to calculate the wattage please call Greenvision on 0115 854 7498 or email us at email@example.com
You will then need to choose a radiator or combination of radiators which add up to the required wattage. If your wattage calculation is on the borderline between two sizes we always recommend choosing the larger radiator. Under-specifying your heating will either leave you cold or will overwork your radiators, wasting energy and shortening their lifespans. Larger radiators will simply spend less time switched on, saving you money whilst maintaining comfortable temperatures.
Our electric radiators use fast-acting heat elements to warm rooms with a mixture of radiated and convected heat – working in just the same way as central heating radiators.
Electric radiators are much cheaper to install than gas central heating. They are also more reliable and require barely any maintenance. Electric radiators offer much more scope to increase the energy efficiency of your heating because they can take advantage of more and more sophisticated electronic heating control technology.
Electric radiators work individually, with each radiator equipped with its own thermostat and programmable timer. This immediately gives electric radiators an advantage because they do not waste energy.
Gas central heating is one of the most popular heating systems in the country, used in the majority of homes across the UK. However, in the last few decades electric heating technology has developed at such a rate that energy efficient electric radiators now offer an economical alternative. Innovative new thermal elements, fast and effective electrical components and state-of-the-art heating control features allow you to trim down and control your energy usage like never before – giving you the potential to significantly reduce your heating costs.
