Electric Heaters With Thermostats

Thermostatic electric heaters come in various forms. Fan heaters, free standing or wall mounted convector heaters, electric radiators on wheels right through to wall mounted energy efficient electric radiators with 24/7 programming. What is the difference? We examine below.

What Are Thermostats

A thermostat is a device that automatically regulates temperature, or that activates a device when the temperature reaches a certain point. There are different types of thermostat available with differences in technology, accuracy and price and for different applications and uses. Cheaper thermostats tend to overheat before switching off and then let the temperature drop below comfort levels before heat returns. Accurate electronic thermostats provide a much more stable temperature and are accurate to 0.1 degrees.

Thermostatic Electric Heaters

Thermostats can significantly lower your consumption as devices can switch off or stop heating when the correct temperature is reached. There are different types of thermostatic electric heaters to choose from ranging in price from a £15 fan heater up to several hundred pounds energy efficient electric radiators.

An electric radiator is very different to an electric heater. The main difference is the method of heat delivery. Electric radiators are very much that, a radiator. Heat is emitted from the body. Thermostatic electric heaters mostly heat by convection. Heating by convection increases running cost and creates less comfort than energy efficient electric radiators.

Energy Efficient

Cast aluminium electric radiators with 24/7 programming and accurate electronic thermostats are much more efficient than other types of thermostatic electric heaters. Cheap to buy thermostatic electric heaters are less expensive to buy but are much more expensive to run.

Smart Heating

As well as thermostats and 7-day 24-hour programming, thermostatic electric heaters can have the latest sensors and technology built in. Electric radiators such as the Curvo+ and Prisma+ have open window sensors and motions sensors to help save energy. With the iVista ranges, you can also control your thermostatic electric heaters from anywhere. Saving money by turning down when you are not there.
