Electric Radiators for Your Conservatory

Hassle free - easy to fit electric conservatory radiators

Conservatory RadiatorsElectric radiators are the new generation electric heaters. Unlike the electric heater, which blows air over heated elements, which are potentially dangerous and cost a fortune to run, the electric radiator generates heat evenly over a radiant surface, using comparatively very little power. Electric radiators generate heat by pumping heated oil through the heating system. The system is designed for continues use, but is not designed to be left on permanently like your central heating system.

The electric radiator can by portable, wall mounted slim-line or free standing columns, which allow you to make a feature out of them or be practically invisible. Most systems allow you to program a timer and temperature setting, to switch them on, saving you money and making the conservatory comfortable when it suits you. The system warms your conservatory up very quickly, so you would only need it on for ten to fifteen minutes before you want to use the space.

Electric radiators are the alternative to electric storage heaters as they are more efficient and cost less in the first instance. With regards extending the existing central heating system, it can be a very costly operation as you would need to hire a qualified heating engineer, who would need to test the existing system to make sure it had the capacity to operate another radiator. He then need to tap into the buried pipe work and install the new unit. As the heat loss in conservatories is greater than that of the house, you would need to run the conservatory radiator more than the internal radiators, to maintain the same temperature, and that is just not possible. The answer, an electric radiator.
