Modern electric heaters will allow a good time on the terrace even the cool evenings
Modern electric heaters for home, energy-saving, compact, easy to manage and use, increasingly compete with traditional (central) system heating, especially - in a small urban apartment. Very often, electric heaters are used as a supplementary heater, in particular - in the off-season, the central heating to enable to provide a comfortable thermal mode.

Electric heaters: Benefits
Electric heaters are practically no alternatives in cases where it is necessary to provide periodic heating, for example, in the country. A couple of hours - and an electric heater can provide an environment suitable for a comfortable pastime. There is no need to arrange the country central heating (and to worry that while you are away water, froze, can break the pipe). Or to invest heavily in the construction of the fireplace (the stove), Which takes a lot of space.

Electric heaters are easy to use
In addition, energy efficient electric heaters are deprived of one of the main drawbacks of solid fuel boilers - no need to first cut firewood (coal, pellets, etc.), and then clean the oven, make ashes and periodically engaged in cleaning chimneys. They are very easy to operate - except that it is necessary to periodically remove dust from them. It should be noted, and several advantages of electric heaters:
- security - they are completely absent risk factors inherent in other types of heaters, such as the risk of explosion (gas boilers), open flame, carbon monoxide (produced in the combustion process). In this case electric heaters (for proper operation) is completely electrical safety. The main thing - when they connect to make sure that the wiring was able to withstand the corresponding load. In addition, many heaters have special lock which disable the device if misused, overheating, etc.
Electric heaters are safe and very effective
- Easy to install - the majority of electric heaters installation process can be described in two words: "plug and work". No need to install them in a separate, dedicated for this purpose room, build chimneys, to monitor the presence and power of traction, etc. Even a powerful electric boiler, you can simply hang on the wall - it takes up little space. And another important point - the installation of the electric heater does not require any approvals and permits
Electric heaters are very easy to install
To install the electric heater does not require any approvals and permits
- easy operation - set thermostats allow to maintain the desired room temperature to within 1 degree (some models - even to 0.5C). In addition, a lot of models of electric heaters (and the vast majority of electric boilers) make it possible to program the heating mode. At the time of the lack of tenants can be kept minimum temperature, and for a few hours before the arrival of the system begins to function actively and owners have come in the warm, warmed the house.
Modern electric heaters have a stylish design and is very easy to use
- almost complete quiet operation
- High autonomy - no need for constant human control over their work
- additional functions - for example, installation of the air ionizer, and in models with fan, - the particle filter.

Another important factor - in comparison with other equipment that is used for space heating, electric heaters are the most affordable prices. Let us consider the most popular types of electric heaters.
One of the main advantages of electric heaters - is their low prices
It looks like a standard heating radiator - "battery." Inside it is the electrical coil (ceramic heater), which Raskalov heats the mineral oil, which in turn heats the metal body, and that - the room air. The larger section has a model - so it is more powerful, and therefore can heat a large area. Undoubted advantage - mobility, a "battery" is easy to install anywhere in the room.
Tip! To avoid the uneven heating of the room, buy a model with a built-in fan that will "disperse" the heat generated in the room.
Most models have overheating protection and rollover, "advanced model" have LCD-screens, which displays the heating mode, and remote controls for controlling the device.
Unusual compact electric heater
The main disadvantage of oil heaters - a very hot surface of the radiators, so they are not recommended for use in children's rooms.
The principle of operation of the electric convector is based on the features of the movement of warm air. The cold air getting inside the convector, passes through the heating element heats up and through the top opening of the heater body enters the room, rising up to the ceiling (Fig. 1). The constant movement of air allows one to uniformly heat the entire volume of the room (Fig. 2), although the difference between the temperature at the floor and ceiling is palpable enough.

Fig. 2 of the room temperature distribution volume
To make the temperature distribution more uniform, recently installed baseboard convectors. Sufficiently narrow (up to 20 m in height), they are stretched (extended) heating element, which allows the use of smaller capacity more efficiently heat the room, creating the most comfortable temperature to a height of 1.5 meters above the floor.
Heaters in the bathroom must be protected from water and moisture
An additional advantage - the convector body heats up very slightly, to 40 ° C, but if we consider the set on top of the grill body, which blocks the penetration of foreign objects on the heater, the complex allows it safely install electric heaters in the nursery.
Due to the high level of security Convection heaters can be placed in the children's room
Convectors - silent heating for apartments
Terrace with convector heaters, ceiling type
Picking up heaters for energy-efficient homes, wall model is often chosen because of their presentable and attractive appearance.
Tip! To increase the efficiency of the wall heater, wall mounted heat reflective shield (foil glued) to redirect the heat from the heating walls useless heating facilities.
Bright and cheerful children's room heaters
Convection heaters for home, energy-saving and compact, can solve the issue of heating rooms with fully glazed and with large houses glass facades. Set in a traditional room, central heating radiators, in principle, the task is realized from a technical point of view, but they do not meet the general concept of lightness, airiness and transparency. Instead, they can be installed convectors - invisible radiators, quite compact, which can be placed in the recesses (niches), or directly on the floor, covered with decorative elegant bars. The rising warm air will act more and more heat curtain, blocking access to cold air.
Several convector heaters cope even with a spacious outdoor terrace
For space heating with a high level of humidity (bathrooms, bathrooms, Heating Rooms) establish models having enhanced moisture protection.
Among others, the heaters for domestic use (energy saving) IR have an important advantage - they provide directional (focused) heat. Unlike other electric heaters, infrared does not heat the air - it's rays heat objects (floor, furniture, walls, etc.) for which they fall, and those already transmit heat the air. In this heating takes place exclusively in the zone (radiation pattern) infrared radiation - if you stand behind the heater, no heat is not felt. To warm up the room, a heater should be placed higher.

Infrared heater - heating appliance gives off heat to the environment by means of infrared radiation
Of course, this great room heater is not warm, but it can be used to create one comfortable "warm" place, saving on heating the entire room. Such heaters are effective, for example, in a garage, when it is necessary to heat the place where work is carried out. Or to put it in late autumn (early spring) on veranda, so that it is directed warms one table. Among other advantages - electric heaters of this type does not reduce the humidity, oxygen not burned and also perform partial disinfection of premises, destroying germs and bacteria.
Infrared heater has a higher efficiency due to heat radiation directed
A variety of infrared heater can be regarded as quartz, carbon and halogen heaters, the difference which lies in the different methods for producing infrared radiation.
Wall-mounted electric heater as the interior decor
At its core - it's a great and powerful hair dryer, in which the air is forced through the fan heater, ceramic heater or an open spiral, heats up and enters the room. they will not be able to heat a large room, so they are used as an additional source of heat in their power. In addition, they have two major drawbacks:
- rather high noise due to the fan
- models that have an open spiral, burn oxygen.
Heater - this is the most affordable option of electric heaters
But at the same cost - this is the most affordable option of electric heaters. The advantage can be considered and that the heater in the summer, without the inclusion of heating, can be used as an ordinary fan.
