Climate Electric Heaters

Electric heaters – an easy option!

Electric heaters are one of the easiest and best-known options for heating a single room. Simply plug the heater in and it makes you warm! All electric heaters are 100% efficient, which means that all of the electrical energy used is converted into heat. While electric heaters are less efficient than heat pumps, which offer 300-400% efficiency, their effectiveness can be enhanced by the different ways they distribute heat into the room.

Heat distribution methods

You should choose your electric heater based on the way you want the heater to warm the space. There are three heat distribution methods available:

Convection heaters warm air

Room air is drawn into the heater and then passes over a heated element that warms the air. The heated air rises naturally from the heater towards the ceiling and then circulates through the room as it layers down towards the floor. Some heaters include a fan to help the warm air circulate more quickly throughout the room.

Radiant heaters warm objects

Instead of warming the air around you, infrared radiant heat warms all objects in its direct path. With radiant heaters, heat reaches you more quickly because it doesn’t rise to the ceiling before layering down to warm the air around you. Radiant heat also warms walls and furnishings, which keeps them dry and minimises dampness and mould growth.

Convection and radiant combination heaters warm you all over

When the two types of heating are combined in one heater you get the best of both methods, with radiant heat warming you directly and convection heating the air around you – the perfect combination for a cosy environment.

Things to consider when choosing an electric heater

It’s important to consider the area you want to heat before choosing an electric heater. Electric heaters are best suited for smaller areas or single rooms. They won’t heat larger areas effectively unless you have multiple heaters running.

Because electric heaters source power directly from an electrical outlet, there is the risk of shock and electrocution if these appliances are not used properly. Do not cover electric heaters with anything such as blankets or clothing as this may cause a fire.
