Heaters Gonna Heat

As the nights draw in and the blanket of frost increases we start to prepare for the winter months ahead. Heating is one of the first things that goes on when it starts to get colder, but if you need a bit extra then a heater is what you'll need.

Convector Heaters

First of all what is convection? Like me you probably haven’t heard that word since high school and its definition is as follows according to BBC’s GCSE Science Bitesize

“Convection occurs when particles with a lot of heat energy in a liquid or gas move and take the place of particles with less heat energy. Heat energy is transferred from hot places to cooler places by convection.”

Convection heaters work by air currents circulating through the body of the appliance and across the heating element, this in turn heats up the air and rise giving off heat.

Convector heaters are ideal for home and offices offering durability and versatility due to their manoeuvrability and some convector heaters even come with the option of being freestanding or wall mounted, so if you are lacking in floor space this could be an ideal solution for you.

Oil Filled Radiators

Oil filled radiators are actually a type of convection heater, contrary to popular belief the oil in these radiators are electrically heated, no burning of oil actually takes place.

The oil flows through the metal columns by convection and acts as a heat reservoir. Because oil has a high boiling it means that it can store a lot of thermal energy.

These types of heaters are ideal for offices, home use as well as showroom and cold workshops.

Industrial Fan Heaters

Fan heaters work by using a fan to blow air over the internal heating implement, so when this leaves the heater it is warm.

A fan heater will often be able to heat up a room or small space quicker than a non-fan heater as well as being more cost efficient as it needs less electricity to run, the downside of these is that they can be noisy.

Because of the noise industrial fan heaters are better suited to warehouses, factories, and workshops during cold snaps and winter months to boost the warmth while you are working.
