Bedroom Electric Radiators
To heat your bedroom efficiently you will need to choose radiators which add up to a wattage appropriate for the size of your room and the quality of its insulation. You can work out the wattage required to heat your room using our interactive radiator calculator. You will need to choose a radiator or combination of radiators which adds up to or exceeds the required wattage. If you find yourself on the borderline between two sizes, always choose the larger radiator – under-specifying your heating will prevent you from heating your bedroom efficiently, whilst larger radiators will simply spend more time switched off, saving you money on your heating bills.
No. Electric radiators contain no moving parts and will operate entirely silently unless damaged or faulty. This makes them ideal for use in bedrooms or nurseries. You’ll never be woken up by a gurgling central heating system again!
Electric radiators boast some of the fastest heat-up times on the market. Unlike storage heaters, which must be charged up overnight, and unlike central heating radiators, which must wait for water to be heated and sent upstairs through the pipes, electric radiators start heating up from the moment they are switched on. Electric radiators with aluminium heating elements, such as the Haverland RC Wave, offer the fastest heat up times and make great heating solutions for bedrooms where you may want fast-acting heating on demand if you decide to go to bed early on a chilly night.
Purchasing an electric radiator with a programmer is one of the best ways to cut down on your energy usage. Most people don’t need their radiators to operate all day – especially in the bedroom, where you may only need heat first thing in the morning and last thing at night. A programmable timer allows you to cut down your energy usage to an absolute minimum, without sacrificing your comfort.
Storage heaters have their disadvantages, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the bedroom. Storage heaters are designed to charge up overnight and distribute heat during the day – but in practice this means that the heaters “leak” heat from the moment they begin charging, typically between midnight and 7am. This can make your bedroom very hot overnight, which can make it difficult to sleep.
Electric radiators make a great alternative to storage heaters, and replacing the storage heater in your bedroom is a good place to start. You can programme your radiators to heat up when you head to bed and when you wake up in the morning, leaving the room cool as you sleep. With its precision thermostat maintaining a steady comfort temperature, your bedroom radiator will cost very little to run each week – a cheap way to trial our radiators as potential house-wide replacements for your storage heaters.
