Small Electric Radiators You Should Consider & Why

Small Electric Radiators You Should Consider & Why

Small electric radiators are safe, silent, sleek, and simple to use. What’s not to love? They come in various modern and classic styles, and you can find wall-mounted or freestanding designs depending on your needs. If you are looking for the perfect companion to your main heat source, read on to learn more about how small electric radiators are the perfect extra boost of warmth you’re looking for.

The advantages of small electric radiators

Here are some of our top reasons why small electric radiators are the perfect heating solution to say goodbye to cold temperatures forever:

1. Size

Small horizontal electric radiators are a great option because they easily fit in small rooms and cramped spaces where other options might be too large, without being obtrusive.

2. Versatility

Small electric radiators come in a range of styles, widths, colours, and finishes, and have a multifunctional purpose. For example, they can serve as a radiator as well as a place to dry your towels in the bathroom or kitchen

3. Low maintenance

Unlike traditional radiators, electric radiators are easy to maintain. There is no need to bleed them, change valves, and regular dusting should be enough to keep it running smoothly and sparkling clean.

4. Ease of installation

Small electric radiators don’t need extending into existing pipework. They typically still require a professional to install them but as they are powered by their own element, they don’t need to be connected up to your central heating system, offering you much more flexibility on location and utility.

5. Ease of control

Many electric radiator models come with a remote control or smartphone apps using Bluetooth or WiFi, so you don’t even need to get up from your chair to turn them on, off, or adjust the temperature if the element is thermostatic.

6. Precision

Electric radiators with thermostatic elements allow you to adjust the temperature in increments (usually in 5 degrees) meaning you can select the perfect temperature for the room or the time of year.  

Where to use small electric radiators

Small electric radiators are a great option for rooms that aren’t connected to the central heating, such as in extensions or garages. They can fit into small spaces like walk-in wardrobes and home offices without getting in the way or being an eyesore. Small electric radiators work especially well in bathrooms and kitchens as a supplementary heat source, for example to help dry additional towels in your bathroom in combination with heated towel rails as a main source.
