Micathermic heaters belong to the category of infrared equipment used for main or auxiliary heating. The difference from other types is in the design of the heating element, consisting of mica with nichrome threads. All this is placed in an insulator made of basalt. Such a plate heats up to 60 degrees, preventing the user from getting burned. Here are some of the best micathermic heaters selected by experts for performance and reviews. An overview of the best heaters is based on an analysis of the technical characteristics of heaters on the resource https://rankquality.com/.

The power of the device is 1500 W and is suitable for rooms up to 15 m². The device can be installed at a height of up to 2.7 m without loss of efficiency for users. The heater operates at full capacity all the time. To regulate the temperature, you need to purchase a thermostat. The owner of the reviews likes that the heater does not dry out the air, keeping it fresh.

The device is made in the form of a vertical block, where the heating element is additionally covered with a steel mesh that prevents burns. At the bottom of the case, there are wheels for easy rearrangement, so the device can be freely used, transporting it with you from room to room. There is a thermostat and a power regulator at the end. To prevent the power cable from hanging loose during periods of inactivity, there is a winding tab on the side. Buyers in the reviews like that the heat from the heater goes in two directions at once, which is more efficient compared to unidirectional models.
The experts turned their attention to the heater due to the anti-freeze function. This is useful if there are no other sources of heat in the room or if using them without human supervision is more dangerous (for example, a gas boiler).

Next is a micathermic model, sold since 2013. Despite its age, its design does not become obsolete. The heating elements are covered with a dense mesh and complemented by two vertical black posts. Power and temperature regulators are provided on the side. At maximum heating power, the heater consumes 1500 W per hour. This is enough to heat a room of 15-20 m². If the device is knocked over by children or animals, it will turn off automatically. In the reviews, buyers are satisfied with the heating rate, where heat begins to be felt from the first seconds of switching on.
Our experts consider this heater to be the best in terms of accurate room temperature control. The electronic thermostat provides a preset level of heat, which has an error of 4 degrees relative to the room thermometer. When the temperature drops, the micathermic heating element turns on immediately, so users do not experience a strong imbalance between cold and heat.

Unlike other products in this review, the device is designed for an installation height of 2.4-3.5 m. Brackets for the wall and the body of the device are supplied with the heater, which are connected with screws. Outside, the model is painted with a black anodized coating, 25 microns thick, which does not peel off and retains an attractive appearance of the product during the entire period of operation.
A common problem with ceiling heaters is the 9-10 cm thick cabinet that looks bulky on the ceiling. This micathermic model features a thin 4 cm block, which is created using a patented technology with beveled inner corners. Visually, this makes the panel on the ceiling even thinner. The second advantage that buyers like in reviews is the presence of a wing mechanism that allows you to change the angle of rotation of the heater by 30 degrees in each direction.
