If you’re looking for ways to keep warm this winter, you may be considering a radiator or room heater. With so many ways to heat the home available, what makes a oil radiator stand out? Here are some of the main advantages of opting for a portable oil filled radiator.
Energy efficient and great heat retention
Firstly, oil radiators are known for being quite energy efficient. The appliance has a reservoir of oil which is heated during operation. This then heats up the radiate and warms the room. This oil retains heat better than some other methods which means after the appliance is switched off, the radiator continues to stay warm for a while. This saves the cost of operation without reducing the warmth.
No disturbance with silent operation
If you get put off by the sound of appliances operating when heating your room, you’ll be pleased to know that oil radiators have silent operation. This means no sound do disturb you when relaxing or working.
No chill from air circulation
You may be aware that when heating with an air ventilation or conditioning system they will naturally circulate the air. This air flow can sometimes create a chilling effect or blow dust around the room. However, oil radiators do not use any sort of fan to distribute their heat. This means you do not need to worry about a chill being created. It also reduces the risk of dust being blown around a room, keeping the air calm.
Lower maintenance than other appliances
Oil radiators also require less maintenance than other forms of heating. Devices such as air conditioning and humidifiers often have filters and vents that need to be cleaned and checked for blockages to ensure efficient operation. This doesn’t mean you should forget about keeping the radiator clean, but it does mean you don’t need to open it up to clean filters regularly.
Quick heat distribution
They generally take a short time to heat up and heat up a room. This is dependent on the room size which can usually be found within the product information. However, if in a suitable room size you can be assured that heat will be distributed quickly around the room.
Achieve desirable positioning with portability
Portable oil radiators often come with wheels to manoeuvre to the desired positioning. This means it can be moved to an area which will optimise the heating to keep yourself and the room warm. You can also change the positioning throughout the day if you find you will be moving to another area of the room or need to free up that space.
Versatile for different environments
Alongside the portability comes the versatility for different environments. These radiators are suitable for bedrooms, kitchens, offices and most other rooms in the home. With a simple plug in and switch on setup, you do not need to worry about installing any sort of ventilation pipe to operate.
