Choosing the right size, shape and power output of an electric panel heater is by far the most important part of a successful installation. After all a small panel heater or a panel heater which is too large for the room will either not get warm enough or will over heat the room. Choosing the perfect size panel heater is simple with the help of our handy Panel Heater Calculator - all a user needs to do is work out the size of the room in which they intend to install a panel heater, once the dimensions of the room are inputted the calculator will work out an approximate size and wattage for the room size in question. This will ensure that the panel heater purchased is correct for the room and so gain in-roads towards efficiencies in consumption of electricity vs. heat output. 

Installing Electric Radiators in a Flat or Home

Electric radiators and in particular electric oil filled radiators provide exceptional heat output for their size and electricity consumption levels. In-fact when coupled to a green source of electricity there is no better method of heating a home or flat.  The diathermic oil contained within our range of electric radiators acts as a heating reservoir and so once warm less energy is used by the heating element to maintain the electric radiators current heat setting.
