The auxiliary radiator
Why choose an auxiliary radiator?
The huge advantage of an auxiliary heater is its mobility and speed of heating. It is ideal for quickly heating a room temporarily. Independent of the central heating, it can be used or turned off according to its needs.
The reasons for using this type of heating are not lacking:
- All rooms or outbuildings of the dwelling are not connected to central heating,
- The central heating fails to adequately heat the entire housing,
- A room can be used and heated only occasionally,
- The use of central heating is too expensive.
An auxiliary radiator is movable and can, by definition, move in all rooms of the housing. A thermostat controls the temperature and power of the heater. The energy consumption is thus totally controlled.
What are the different types of space heaters?
The diversity of the range of radiators makes it possible to find a solution adapted to its needs:
- The electric radiator blowing,
- The electric radiator oil bath,
- The mobile electric convector,
- The radiating radiator mobile.
In addition, there is also in terms of additional heating, the electric fireplace or the gas stove or oil.
When to use an auxiliary heater?
An auxiliary radiator can be used in all circumstances: to heat a room temporarily, as the bathroom, or punctually, as a guest room. You can also use it in autumn and spring, when the temperature does not require the start of the central heating.
On the other hand, it is not advisable to use it permanently: the auxiliary radiator does not offer the comfort of a central heating and is energy-hungry.
