20 best convectors

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Heating of housing, offices and industrial premises is an urgent problem in Russia in winter. In some cases, a convector can be an irreplaceable device. The device gets its name from the physical process of convection. It denotes the transfer of thermal energy in space. Heating equipment does not solve problems of a universal scale, but the problems of a detached house or one room. What are the requirements for domestic convectors by domestic experts?

How to choose a convector

  1. Convector type. Several types of convectors are sold in the trading network. Some of them are powered by electricity, others convert hydrocarbons into heat, and still others effectively use hot water for heating. Electric and gas models are considered the most independent.
  2. Power. This indicator of the heater is most often of interest to buyers. But it is important to take into account the area of ​​the room, the possibilities of electrical wiring, the consumption of gas or electricity by the device. Experts recommend starting from a simple formula when choosing. For heating 1 sq. m of housing requires 100 watts of thermal energy. Therefore, for a room of 10 sq. m is enough for a 1 kW convector. But this is an approximate calculation, it does not take into account the level of thermal insulation of the house, the thickness of the walls, the presence of drafts (in the case of a warehouse or office). If the conditions worsen, you should add another 50 watts of energy for each square meter.
  3. Room type. The air temperature in different rooms is very different. The warmest are considered the nursery and the bedroom, where many Russians would like to set the temperature regime at 24-28 ° C. The room is 10 sq. m, a convector will work effectively, which is designed for a room of 13-15 sq. m. In offices, workers will feel comfortable if the air temperature fluctuates between 20-22 ° C. In this case, a less powerful heater is required than is required for theoretical calculations. But in the living room it is best to buy a device whose maximum heating area corresponds to the size of a real room. It is more difficult to give advice if the convector is purchased as an additional heat source. In this case, everything depends on the possibilities of the district heating.
  4. Mounting type. Most convectors are wall or floor mounted. Each of them has its own advantages. So wall mounting allows you to save usable room area and makes the device as safe as possible for humans. This is important when heating children's rooms, baths or kitchens. The floor heater is convenient for its maneuverability. With castors, even children and the elderly can easily drag the heater to another room.
  5. Thermostat. In order to maintain the set heating level, thermostats are installed in the convectors. There are two main types: mechanical and electronic. Mechanics are considered by many users to be an outdated option, but it is simple, reliable and cheaper. The user needs to manually set the regulator to a certain position, and the device will work within the specified limit. The electronic device works more precisely. It is suitable in cases where each degree plays an important role (pharmacies, winter gardens, warehouses).
  6. Safety. When choosing a convector, one should not forget about safety. Both electric and gas models pose a certain threat to human health and life. Although electrical appliances are considered safer, high power can negatively affect old wiring. Options such as protection against overheating, rollover, short circuits and moisture will not be superfluous. Gas models also carry the threat of poisoning by combustion products. All joints must be sealed to exclude an explosion of the air-gas mixture. Therefore, ventilation and chimney must have a capacity margin.

We have selected the 20 best convectors for our review. All of them were approved by the expert community and domestic consumers.
