Space Heaters & Radiators

For areas and work spaces where central heating isn’t available, or for when weather conditions require extra heating, space heaters and radiators are an ideal solution. Typically portable and able to bring extra heat to where it is needed, space heaters operate from a mains power point, and are an efficient way of heating environments.

What Type of Space Heater Do I Need?

Convector Heaters

A type of electric heater that use air convection to run air through the body of the appliance and across its heating element. As they rely on the air moving through it by the natural convection that comes with heating, they are quieter than fan heaters. They are effective room-heaters.

Fan Heaters

Fan heaters employ a fan to blow air over a heated element. Though noisier and sometimes less efficient than other electric heaters, they can blow hot air where it is needed for more immediate results.

Radiant Heaters

Unlike convection heaters, electric radiators don’t rely on circulating air to heat a room. As they rely on generating heat directly to people and objects, they are less effective at ambient heating.

Infrared Heaters

Infrared heaters, sometimes known as heat lamps, use infrared radiation to warm areas. Because they as they transfer radiation between bodies, infrared heaters spend less energy heating air, and as such are commonly used to heat outdoor areas. As these heaters don’t rely on fans, they run silently.

Panel Heaters

Ultra-thin flat panel heaters are space saving and efficient ways to heat a room. With versatile mounting options, and a broad surface area, they are a cost-effective way of warming a space.

Heat Lamps

Heat lamps can be mounted on poles or walls, and as such are often used for outdoor areas or large indoor spaces such as warehouses. They provide a direct heat source, and so are more efficient warming those close by than controlling the ambient temperature of an environment.

Portable Electric Heaters

Like heat lamps, a freestanding portable heater provides a more direct source of heat, but is designed to be moved where they are needed. They work well as a temporary measure in spaces where heating systems have yet to be installed.

Tubular Heaters

Tubular heaters are an efficient way and space-saving way of providing ambient heating. As such, they are often used in green houses to provide frost protection, or to prevent misting. They are usually coupled with a thermostat to adjust to specific temperatures.
