German made electric radiators are extremely high quality radiators with the longest warranty available of 30 years. The system uses a combination of integrated Fireclay plates and a thermostat to economically heat your home while being designed to run on standard electricity tariffs.
German heating Radiators cyclically generate and conserve heat within the core of the heater. The heat retention is achieved by a series of Fireclay heat plates in the centre of the radiator. Each heat plate has a coiled heating element totally buried within it, forming an integral part of the plate. Each heat plate has a typical power rating of 100 – 200 watts. When the electric heating system is switched on, the element gets hot, heating the storage plate within a matter of minutes. Once heated the heat plate will retain heat for well over 30 minutes, transferring heat to the metal casing and flutes of the radiator to draw cold air from the floor up through the flutes creating convection heat.
As the temperature drops in a room the built in thermostat senses the change and switches the heater on, perhaps for only a minute to re-heat the internal plates. This continual dynamic re-heat process continues maintaining the room temperature. The ability to sense temperature changes and react immediately is one of the great benefits of this type of heating. Because of the ability to heat up quickly and store heat, the use of electricity is limited and the cost of using the radiators can be just a few pence per hour.
Each radiator has a built in digital electronic room thermostat and 7 day programming system. Optionally they can be controlled remotely by radio frequency. The electronic thermostat is accurate to +/- 0.2 deg C and the timing system allows you to pre-set required room temperatures at specific times. Giving you a vast choice of interfaces for your heating system.
