Electric Radiators Direct

Welcome to Electric Radiators Direct, suppliers of energy efficient electric radiators and towel rails. We champion electric heating as the heating solution of the future because it is carbon free, ideal for use with sustainable energy and perfectly adapted to take advantage of SMART electronic technology. Once upon a time, electric heating was limited to rudimentary storage heaters designed to save money by heating up overnight using cheap rate electricity and releasing heat during the day. Inefficient, bulky, and difficult to control, storage heaters are rarely popular in homes today. However, not all homeowners realise that electric heating has evolved in recent decades, and now electric radiators offer an easy-install, maintenance free heating option with running costs to rival gas central heating.

Electric radiators are a fantastic forward-looking heating solution because they run equally well whether your electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels or by harnessing sustainable resources. As fossil fuels become scarcer and renewable energy increasingly dominates the energy sector, electric radiators provide an adaptable heating option than keeps up with the changing times.

The company was founded in 2013 to meet the rising demand for energy efficient electric radiators at affordable prices. Since then we have been committed to making comfortable heating with a low carbon footprint an affordable option for all households and businesses, whatever the budget.

When you shop at Electric Radiators Direct you will find a comprehensive range of products with something for every property, design scheme and budget. Our website is packed full of useful information, and, if you’re still unsure, our friendly team of heating advisors are only a phone call away. At Electric Radiators Direct we’re proud to offer exceptional customer service with an award-winning team here to help you before, during and after your purchase. We also offer free next day delivery on most items and a 30 day money back guarantee and best price promise on all our products.

Sounds good? Then come and join the thousands of satisfied customers who have already installed electric radiators in homes and businesses across the country!

  1. How do self-learning electric radiators work?

    1
    1. Haverland SmartWave Self Learning Electric Radiators use built in infrared sensors to learn your weekly routine and adapt a heating programme that warms the room when you’re there and saves energy when you’re away. The first of its kind available in the UK, the SmartWave sets a new bar for electric heating control and efficiency.

      Haverland SmartWave Electric Radiators have three operating modes: self-learning, sensor and manual. The three modes, along with Wifi controllability available when you purchase your SmartWaves with a Wifi SmartBox, give you total freedom to choose how you control your SmartWave radiators.

  2. What size electric radiator do I need?

    1
    1. To heat your room effectively you will need to choose radiators with a high enough wattage to efficiently heat the space. To calculate the wattage required to heat your space you can use our interactive radiator calculator, which will calculate the required wattage based on the dimensions of your room and your property type.

      You will then need to choose a radiator or combination of radiators which add up to the required wattage. If your wattage calculation is on the borderline between two sizes we always recommend choosing the larger radiator. Under-specifying your heating will either leave you cold or will overwork your radiators, wasting energy and shortening their lifespans. Larger radiators will simply spend less time switched on, saving you money whilst maintaining comfortable temperatures.

      Please be aware that the radiator calculator is for guidance only. We cannot guarantee that the recommended wattages will heat your home effectively. If in doubt, seek the advice of a qualified electrician.

  3. What size are SmartWave electric radiators?

    1
    1. SmartWave electric radiators are available in a range of sizes with options to suit everything from the largest to the smallest room. You can use our interactive radiator calculator to work out what sizes you will need to heat your room effectively. Simply enter the dimensions of your room and the calculator will work out the total wattage required to heat the room. Then all you have to do is choose a radiator, or combination of radiators, which adds up to the required wattage. We sell SmartWave radiators in 450w, 800w, 1100w, 1400w and 1700w sizes.

  4. How does the SmartWave self-learning mode work?

    1
    1. When you first purchase your SmartWave Radiators they will be set to self-learning mode. The infrared sensor on the radiator body monitors movement around the room to make a record of your weekly routine for every hour of each individual day of the week.

      In the first week of operation, the radiator will also switch on whenever it senses movement in order to keep you warm while it learns your routine. The following week, the SmartWave will provide heat automatically based on your learned routine, heating up 30 minutes in advance of when the radiator expects you to be in the room, so, provided the radiator has learned a representative routine, your house should always be warm when and where you need it.

      Each radiator in your house works separately, so you won’t have the same heating programme in your living room as you will in your kitchen, and so on. That’s part of the beauty of self-learning electric heating – it allows you to make energy savings from room to room, as well as across the week. As long as the radiator remains in self-learning mode it will continue to monitor and learn your routine – so that every week it will heat for the routine it recorded the previous week, allowing the radiators to adapt to any long-term changes in your lifestyle.

  5. Can I put an electric radiator in my bathroom?

    1
    1. We do not recommend electric radiators for bathroom installation. This is because there is the temptation to hang towels over the appliance to dry, which can obstruct ventilation on the heater and cause a hazard. In most bathrooms, electric towel rails provide a more practical option, making better use of the space. They give you somewhere to hang your towels while also keeping the room toasty and warm.

      All towel rails for bathroom installation must be installed by a professional electrician.

  6. What warranty comes with the SmartWave?

    1
    1. Haverland SmartWave Electric Radiators come with a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty and a lifetime guarantee on the body of the radiator. Haverland accessories come with a 1 year warranty.

  7. Will SmartWave radiators waste energy if I deviate from my routine?

    1
    1. No – don’t worry, the SmartWave has plenty of tricks up its sleeves to adapt to any changes in your routine. Few of us have a routine so rigid that we stick to it unwaveringly week after week. On Tuesday we might be late back from work because of an over-running meeting. Perhaps on Wednesday we might be working from home to accept a delivery. Maybe on Saturday we’ll be out all day to visit a friend. Whether you’re back earlier or later than expected, or you’re spending time in different rooms to normal, our radiators will adapt.

      For starters, as long as it can sense your movement, the SmartWave will continue to maintain comfort temperatures – so it won’t suddenly cut the heat if you linger in that favourite armchair a little longer than normal. Then, if you return home earlier than expected, the SmartWave’s sensor will detect your movements and will signal the radiator to start warming up immediately; with the radiators fast-acting aluminium heating elements, this means the room will reach your preferred comfort temperature in a matter of minutes. If you leave early, get home late or are unexpectedly absent for any other reason, the SmartWave will switch to economy mode after half an hour. If after several hours you still have not returned, the SmartWave will switch to anti-freeze mode. This ensures that your radiators won’t waste energy heating an empty house.

  8. What are the best electric radiators for rooms with high ceilings?

    1
    1. Rooms with high ceilings can be difficult to heat because they hold a much higher volume of air: this means it takes more power to raise the ambient temperature of the air.

      Our Haverland Inerzia radiators are specifically designed for rooms with high-ceilings. Instead of using a thermal fluid or solid state aluminium elements, the Inerzia range heats using lightweight ceramic stones. These stones boast excellent heat retention properties and throw out heat at a higher intensity than other heating elements, packing more power into the radiator’s compact body and providing the oomph needed to fill the entire room with warm air.

      The Inerzia is an excellent choice for Victorian terraces, open-plan living areas, high-ceilinged offices, stairwells, hallways and community halls.

  9. What size radiators do I need?

    1
    1. You can calculate what size radiators you need to heat your room using our radiator wattage calculator. The maximum power output of each of our radiators is measured by its wattage. The calculator will work out what total wattage will be required to heat your room effectively and efficiently. You will then need to choose radiators which add up to or exceed the required wattage.

      It is very important that you do not try and heat your room with smaller radiators than recommended. Under-specifying your heating will not save you money in the long run because your radiators will have to work very hard to maintain comfort temperatures, decreasing their energy efficiency and driving up your heating bills.

  10. What are electric heaters?

    1
    1. Electric heaters are electric powered appliances designed for heating. This includes a huge range of heating systems: from the small and portable, to the large and heavy duty. Under the electric heaters umbrella you’ll find everything from plug-in panel heaters to traditional storage heaters, from outdoor patio heaters to slimline infrared panels.
