Plug in radiators can be a convenient and easy way to heat you home or business. Wherever you have a plug socket you can have warmth. No need for boilers or pipes, electric plug in radiators offer DIY installation and energy efficiency.

Thermostats and Controls

Precise temperature control and programming can lead to energy savings. All our electric radiators come with integral room thermostats and the ability to program different temperatures for different times of the day and week (24/7 programming). You only need to heat the rooms you are using, not wasting heat by heating unoccupied rooms. You can programme lower temperature at night or when you are out at work, and have heat for when you wake up or evening times when you need it.

Energy Efficient

With large surface areas, our electric radiators distribute heat very effectively and evenly across the room. Of course, firstly you must get the right size radiator for the room size. If you fit one that is too small, it will be working too hard to heat the room. So, choosing the correct size is the most important thing to consider. Bear in mind that it is never a mistake to over-specify. As discussed above, the use of thermostats with any heating system will save you money. Coupled with controls which allow different temperatures in different rooms for different times of day will lead to energy savings. Our radiators deliver a high percentage of quality radiated heat. Cheaper types of heaters lead to higher levels of convected heat, which leads to overconsumption. One Room or the Whole House Electric radiators are useful for any application. Even if you have gas central heating, an electric radiator can heat one room, perhaps your home office, without the need for turning the whole heating system on. They are also perfect for extensions, garage conversions and loft conversions. Plug in radiators can also be used as central heating.

Electric Central Heating

For many years, storage heaters were considered the only option for electric heating but not anymore. Energy efficient electric radiators will give you the same effect as a central heating system. With the same quality of heat, but with better controllability. When considering plug in radiators such as the Curvo+ for your electric central heating, it is important to fit one in every room and every area, as you would when fitting gas central heating. In larger rooms, you may require more than one radiator. The best place to fit any radiator, including ours, is on an outside wall under a window if possible. However, you can fit one anywhere you have a plug socket.
