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.

  1. How do you install the VeeSmart?

    1
    1. Installation of the VeeSmart is a fairly straightforward process for a professional electrician but should never be attempted DIY. It’s not supplied with a fitted plug because it must be wired into the mains of your home. When you receive your VeeSmart, the KTX 4 element will be supplied in the same box but will need attaching to the radiator body by your installer.

      Though you’ll need to hire a contractor in order to fit your VeeSmart, this should be a quick process and certainly much cheaper compared to extending your central heating system. VeeSmart radiators are suitable for use in bathrooms but care must be taken to ensure they are installed at least 1m away from any source of water to prevent damage to the finish.

      Many of our VeeSmart radiators are heavy and in most cases two people will be required to safely lift and secure the appliance.

  2. Can I dry clothes or towels on a vertical Ecostrad VeeSmart?

    1
    1. If you regularly dry towels and clothes on your radiators, it may be better to purchase a horizontal radiator. However, if you have your heart set on a vertical radiator but still want to dry the occasional clothing item, it is possible using the right accessories.

      Steel radiators can be used with magnetic rails that can be quickly installed onto the front face of your vertical radiator. Installing these accessories is as easy as sticking them to the radiator face and letting magnetic force do the rest. These accessories often require the vertical radiator to have a flat front rather than tubular columns to ensure even contact with the magnets; you also need to be aware that this will not work with non-magnetic radiators made of materials like aluminium. Fortunately, the vertical VeeSmart fulfils both of these criteria, so you can still dry clothes on your radiator if you so choose. Please be aware that we do not sell magnetic rails – you will have to source these from another retailer.

      If you do decide to dry clothes on your vertical VeeSmart please adhere to the following conditions:

      Never dry materials on the VeeSmart that are temperature sensitive. This can cause damage to the clothes and the finish of the radiator. Don’t dry any fabrics with running dyes (e.g. new towels) on the radiator as these can bleed and cause permanent discolouration to the white finish of the VeeSmart. Drying chemical-soaked cloths is also prohibited as this can also cause discolouration, or at worst, corrosion of the finish. The VeeSmart’s 8 Year Warranty on the powder-coating does not cover any damage caused by failure to adhere to these rules, or from the use of any 3rd party accessories.

      Though the VeeSmart is suitable for clothes drying, never assume that this is the case with all electric radiators: many must be kept completely free from obstructions to prevent them from overheating. The VeeSmart has an enclosed body and a thermostat that isn’t easily obstructed by hanging fabrics, whereas other products may have subtle venting and thermostats that are less easily discerned. Before drying anything on an electric radiator, always check the manufacturer’s guidelines beforehand. Erring on the side of caution can prevent a serious hazard from occurring in your home.

  5. What is a “traditional-style” electric radiator?

    1
    1. Most modern electric radiators are styled with contemporary curved bodies, breaking away from the design of conventional plumbed heating systems. In homes with classic décor, these modern alternatives can sometimes look out of place. Traditional-style electric radiators are designed with the fluted bodies of older systems, providing elegant heating with all the energy-saving features and digital programming capabilities of modern electric radiators.

  6. Is an Ecowärme German electric radiator right for me?

    1
    1. German electric radiators are manufactured from the highest quality components, providing a durable, stylish, and modern electric heating system. The Ecostrad Ecowärme comes with detailed 24/7 digital programming, three heater modes, and a timer function, providing energy-efficient heating for your home and business. For superior heating, German electric radiators are second to none.

  7. Is the Ecowärme controllable?

    1
    1. The Ecowärme can be controlled using the integrated control panel on the side of the radiator. Using this user-friendly control panel, you can adjust the heater modes, change the set temperatures, and interact with the programming features. The keypad can even be locked to prevent anyone from tampering with your settings and it also acts as a safety device for households with small children.

Our range of German electric radiators are manufactured to the highest standards, providing well-built, robust electric radiators that are designed to last – featuring advanced digital programming, energy-saving features, and elegant radiator housings.

  9. Are German electric radiators controllable?

    1
    1. German electric radiators come with sophisticated digital programming, allowing you to precisely plan your heating schedule with confidence. Assign heater modes to hourly intervals to ensure your rooms are always at the right temperature at the right time.

  10. What sized radiators do I need?

    1
    1. Our German electric radiators come in a range of sizes to heat rooms large or small. You can use our handy radiator calculator to figure out the total wattage needed to heat your room. You will need a radiator, or combination of radiators, that add up to this wattage. It’s worth bearing in mind that over specifying the wattage of your German electric radiators is the best way to ensure your rooms are always adequately heated.
