Reduce Panel Heater Running Costs

There are a few simple steps you can take which will help Reduce Panel Heater Running Costs:

  • Lower the thermostat by a few degrees.
  • Use the built in timer to control when the heater comes on and off.
  • Keeping the room at a desired temperate all day will in theory reduce the running cost as the Panel Heater will keep topping up the room heat continuously through out the day.

To meet the latest European Certification in 2018, all Wall Mounted Panel Heaters must have digital timer's and thermostat's along with rapid temperate cuts off mode.
