Stepping into a room where warmth embraces you is a welcome feeling, especially during these cold winter days. Electric radiators, in particular the wall-mounted variety, have changed the way we experience comfort. From energy efficiency, space-saving design and cost-effectiveness to customisable heating and low maintenance, an electric radiator is a must-have for your home.
In this blog, we discuss a few of the benefits you’ll enjoy with a new wall mounted electric radiator.
Efficiency is a massive advantage of electric radiators. With advanced heating technologies, they can easily convert electricity into cosy warmth. Not only does this ensure quick comfort during cold days, it also contributes to energy savings.
Many electric radiators have smart thermostats to regulate heat output based on your preference, further eliminating wasteful energy consumption. This makes electric radiators an eco-friendly option, thereby lessening your carbon footprint.
Having your electric radiators wall mounted is a great option, especially if you’re limited on space. They don’t use any floor space and make efficient use of the wall space you have.
Whether you opt for a vertical or horizontal radiator, you will receive about the same heat output and not lose space in your room. With our designer radiators, you can select a radiator that also appeals to the room’s aesthetic and make it seem like an art piece.
Installation and Placement
Wave goodbye to complex installations because with electric radiators, you’ll have your heating system up and running in no time. Electric wall radiators are designed with user friendliness in mind.
The versatility of these radiators allows you to place them strategically, optimising heat distribution and making the most of your available space. This makes them ideal for wall mounting in smaller living rooms or bedrooms.
Plus, there is no need to worry about complex plumbing as wall mounted electric radiators are ready to be fitted without hassle.
Whilst gas is currently available at cheaper rates than electricity, electric radiators still work out cheaper to run than gas central heating because they are extremely energy efficient.
The high precision electronics and smart controls unique to electric radiators allow them to compensate for the higher price of electricity, and often will cost you less to run.
For instance, you can regulate which room receives the most heat, if at all. Setting individual heating schedules allows you to reduce your energy usage and cut back on ongoing costs. So while the initial investment of an electric wall mounted radiator might seem higher, the long-term savings make up for it.
Customisable heating, including zoning and individual room control can transform your entire heating experience. Wall mounted electric radiators can be installed in specific rooms, enabling you to use individual temperature control.
This will optimise comfort and minimise energy consumption by heating only the spaces you need. Temperature control will also allow you to set your desired temperature to avoid overheating but maintain a comfortable environment.
In an era of smart living, integration matters. Many wall mounted electric radiators can be seamlessly integrated into your smart home ecosystem.
This gives you a fully controllable heating solution, making it possible for you to set your heating via your smartphone when you’re at work or from the comfort of your bed.
Maintenance and Durability
Compared to traditional gas central heating, electric wall mounted radiators require minimal upkeep. No more bleeding radiators and other high-maintenance procedures.
Simply carry out routine cleaning such as dusting and wiping down the surface to keep it performing at its best. On average, the modern electric radiator lasts between fifteen and twenty years so you can rest assured that you will be making a worthwhile investment.
And should any issues arise, most troubleshooting can be easily handled with basic DIY solutions, but you can contact us for expert advice on your electric radiator.
While wall mounted electric radiators are generally safe, continuous use can increase the risk of wear and tear. Prolonged operation might lead to issues like overheating or potential electrical faults.
Regular inspections and mindful usage can mitigate these risks. Most electric radiators have safety features such as automatic shut-off. When wall mounted, they pose less risk as they’re firmly fixed with no danger of them tipping over. However, it’s essential that children and pets are under supervision around them.
Furthermore, you need to ensure that your electric radiator remains unobstructed by curtains or furniture that could block the thermostat and cause overheating.
