How do Heat Electric radiators work?

The beauty of our electric radiators is that they don’t require any plumbing in, pipe-work or gas supply. Each radiator comes pre-filled with water sealed into the unit, then the unit is simply plugged into a standard plug socket.

The water inside is heated by an internal mini-boiler then pumped around the radiator. The radiator emits a combination of radiant and convected heat, which heats the whole room without dryness or stuffiness to create a comfortable and healthy atmosphere. Because water is so quick to heat up, your room will feel warmer much quicker than if you had oil-filled heaters or storage heaters.

The radiator also features a thermostat that senses the room temperature and responds accordingly. For example, if the radiator has been programmed to come on as soon as the room drops below 20 degrees, the radiator will switch on as soon as it gets too cold and will switch off when the room reaches the desired temperature. This means that you never use more electricity than you need to and you can reduce your heating bills.

Our electric radiators heat up in minutes and can be easily programmed to fit your needs, so no electricity is wasted. There is no maintenance required and no storage period, topping up of water or bleeding is necessary. The water also contains a combination of rust inhibitor and anti-freeze, which prevents corrosion and freezing.

Thanks to their intelligent and advanced control features, our Heat Electric radiators are a fantastically economical and energy-efficient way to heat a room. You can program exact times and temperatures to avoid wasting electricity or heat, and the rapid heat-up of the radiators means that when you want heat, you get heat.

Easy to install

Installing our radiators is very quick and couldn’t be simpler.

Each radiator is supplied with fixing brackets, fittings and full, detailed installation instructions.

It takes around 15 minutes to install one of our radiators, then you’re ready to switch on and feel the warmth.

Control Options made easy…

Our radiators come with a choice of two control methods. Choose between a radiator with a built-in 24-hour timer or a radiator with a digital Remote Control – a wireless remote control that allows you to control multiple radiators around your home from the same controller.

Remote Control for optimum temperature control

If you’re looking for maximum controllability, our Remote Control-enabled electric radiator is the ideal model for you.

The radiator features a dial temperature setting, tamper-proof cover and a hidden air-sensing thermostat. The radiator can be used with an optional wireless Remote Controller, which offers many benefits:

  • 24/7 digital thermostat for maximum energy-efficient heating
  • Displays the current and target room temperatures
  • Programs up to six different time and temperature settings per day
  • Programs different times on different days
  • Programs several radiators as a group
  • Option to install more than one controller around the home for zoned controllability
  • Battery powered
  • Can be wall mounted.

The remote control radiator can be used in bathrooms provided that the controls cannot be touched by someone using the bath or shower. Building regulations state that radiators in bathrooms must be fused into a spur rather than plugged into a normal socket.

Built-in Timer Control for easy programming

The Built-in Timer Control model offers similar heat controllability but without the wireless Radio Frequency Controller. It features:

  • 24-hour timer for flexible heat and time programming
  • A temperature setting dial
  • Tamper-proof cover
  • Hidden air-sensing thermostat.

The built-in timer radiator can be used in bathrooms provided that it is installed at least 60cm away from a bath or shower.
Building regulations state that radiators in bathrooms must be fused into a spur rather than plugged into a normal socket.

Size Requirements

The size of the radiator that you require will depend on many factors such as room size, number of external walls, level of wall insulation etc.

If you get a heater that is too small, you'll struggle to get your room warm enough and if you get a radiator that is too big, you'll waste money.

To see what size radiator you need, choose the option below that best suits your home.

Please feel free to call us if you have any questions or queries or would like advice on the size of radiator you need to bring warmth to your rooms - call our Customer Support team on 01422 231943 or email info@heatelectric-uk.co.uk.
