What are the Benefits of Motion Sensors in Electric Radiators?

Electric Radiator Solutions are proud to supply the UK with the most advanced electric radiators on the market today.

All our radiators are manufactures using high grade cast aluminium. All are 100% programmable 24/7 and are fitted with highly accurate thermostats.

Having accurate heating controls means you can select whatever temperature you want – not too hot and not too cold. As our radiators are individually programmable and thermostatic, you can have different temperatures and programmes for different rooms and areas. With this high level of control, energy savings can be made by not heating rooms you are not using, and only heating rooms to the correct temperature (no overheating). All at times to suit your lifestyle.

Our Prisma+ and Curvo+ electric radiator ranges also have extra energy saving features not found in other competitor’s products:

Motion Sensor Technology

Motion Sensor - Turns down the temperature when no motion is detected

Window Open Detection

Window Open Detection - Switches the radiator off when it senses open windows

End User Behaviour Indicator

End User Behaviour Indicator - Traffic light system warning of high temperature/usage

Energy Monitor

Babycare Function

Babycare Function - Limits the surface temperature

Today we will explain how the motion sensor can save you money.

Our patented Motion Sensor results in energy savings of up to 12% by switching to economy mode when no motion is detected. This function is only available in Comfort mode.

The time of absence (no motion) is configurable from 10 minutes to 4 hours. After half the time has elapsed, the temperature is reduced by 1.5oC. When all the time has passed, the thermostat selects the Economy temperature. If motion is detected at any time, the radiator goes back to your Comfort temperature.

For example, if you have temperatures of 18oC for Comfort and 14oC for economy. You set the time of absence for 2 hours. From no motion being detected for 1 hour the radiator will switch from 18oC to 16.5oC. Than after 2 hours the radiator goes to 14oC and stays at that until motion is detected.

Ideal for rooms that aren’t always occupied. Our radiators with motion sensors have helped customers save money in Village Halls, Churches, Offices, and of course homes.

Our latest range of Smart Electric Radiators, the iVista Prisma+ has all the above benefits as well as the ability to control your radiators from anywhere with the iVista App on your smartphone or tablet.

As the UK moves away from traditional fossil fuels to more secure low carbon heating, electric is increasingly becoming an environmentally friendly option. Electricity can be produced from renewable sources such as solar or wind, making energy efficient electric radiators an eco-friendly heating solution.

Having the best heating system installed in your home means you will not only benefit from the latest in heating technology but also lower your energy bills.
