Recommendations for choosing a heater
Heater type. The most popular these days are convector and infrared devices.
- Convectors consist of a heating element and a casing, between which there are ventilation holes. Cold air enters the heating element area, heats up and is distributed throughout the room. This air exchange scheme does not require a fan.
- Infrared radiation favorably heats up the surrounding objects (walls, floor, ceiling). They, in turn, give off heat to the room. IR heaters are energy efficient and do not burn oxygen in the room.
Heating power. When choosing a monolithic heater, you should pay attention to such an important parameter as heating power. The indicator directly depends on the size of the room and the type of heater.
- If a convector is preferred, a simple formula can be used to calculate the maximum power. For heating 1 sq. m premises with a ceiling height of 2.5 m requires 100 watts of power. Experts advise to give preference to models that exceed the calculated value by 10-15%.
- When buying infrared devices, a different rule applies. The area of the room is multiplied by 100, and then another number 200 is added. For example, to heat a room of 13 square meters. m, an IR device with a power of 13×100 + 200 = 1500 W is required.
Functionality. Modern heaters are equipped with a set of functions that make operation convenient.
- Temperature control allows you to select the most comfortable heating mode.
- A built-in thermostat helps automate the operation of the heater. It is only necessary to set the temperature range, after which the device will turn on and off the heating element itself.
- Electronic control is found in expensive models. The user can program the operation of the heater, make adjustments using the remote control.
- Safety. Any electrical device is fraught with danger, so manufacturers equip their products with various security systems.
- Overheating protection turns off the device if the heating element temperature exceeds the set value.
- Roll-over protection is installed in floor-standing models. It works when the device falls, turning off the heating.
- If you plan to use the heater in bathrooms or garages, then preference should be given to models with protection against moisture.
