I would like to change my electric heaters (toaster) for radiators inertia, but view the diversity of the offer, I would like to know what is the best for my case in a single storey house with good insulation, d ' an area of ​​95m ² including two bedrooms, a closed kitchen, a living room of 40m ². The house at 12 years of age thank you

of the old electric radiators can be effectively replaced by radiators with inertia. This inertia can be provided by the presence in the heating body of a solid material or a coolant. Both will store the heat, and the radiator will stay warm for some time after the thermostat is shut down, ie when the selected optimal temperature is reached. This technique allows to get closer to the comfort of a hot water central heatingwhile allowing savings. Indeed, this inertia helps to significantly reduce the heating times and therefore saves electricity.
The differences in prices are very important, for an equivalent advertised power. Without going into details, particular dimensions and aesthetics are very expensive. Then, the price differences are also related to the brand and the distribution network.
Finally, the quality of the components, including the fineness of regulation, are to be taken into account.
Some entry-level products can perfectly satisfy. They will be less precise in terms of regulation, the finish will be less accomplished, but the reliability should be at the rendezvous. In DIY superstores, claims for this type of product are quite limited.
For the calculation of the power, it is necessary to retain on average 100 watts per m2, for a properly insulated house in a temperate climate area.
