How does the Ecostrad VeeSmart work?1
Ecostrad VeeSmart radiators are designed to work individually and do not require integration into any existing heating system for operation. Each unit comes pre-filled with a specially engineered thermal oil, which is heated by an electric thermal element in the base of the radiator. The heating element comes with an integrated thermostat and controller so you can heat your rooms independently. This zoned style of heating allows you to warm your home more efficiently and effectively than with a central heating system.
The VeeSmart’s intelligent heating element allows you to create a weekly heating schedule for every room in your home, choosing comfort or economy temperatures for every hour of the day. This provides a much greater degree of control over energy usage and means you can be more selective in how you heat your home, rather than attempting to heat all of your rooms to the same temperature using one central thermostat.
Do vertical radiators work the same as horizontal radiators?1
Vertical radiators are just as effective as horizontal radiators when in operation, so all you need to do is choose a radiator with an output appropriate for your room size. Radiators heat mainly through convection, so provided their wattage can comfortably heat all of the air within a given space, their shape is largely irrelevant.
Some people encounter problems with vertical radiators when they are installed as part of a central heating system. This is because vertical radiators need hot water from the pipes to be channelled upwards, which can cause issues if installed incorrectly. The VeeSmart doesn’t have this problem – it’s designed to work independently and isn’t reliant on a maze of pipework to supply it with a source of heat. Its electric heating element means that you avoid the hassle of bleeding and balancing your radiators, as well as the worry of having to ensure your boiler can cope with any additional load.
Both vertical and horizontal radiators come with their own benefits, so your choice should be based upon how you tend to use your room space and your radiators. Vertical radiators make the better choice if you have a room with limited wall space or an awkward layout that makes it difficult to accommodate a horizontal model. They can be particularly useful in kitchens that often have much of the available space taken up with worktops and cupboards. Another main benefit of vertical radiators is that they’re not easily blocked by furniture so there’s less risk of their heat being leeched away by your sofa or armchair. Practicality aside, they’re also very visually striking and can make an attractive addition to your room space – some users choose vertical radiators for this reason alone!
Horizontal radiators make good use of the ‘dead space’ below windows, so in this way, they’re just as space-saving and effective. They’re also the better choice if you like to hang towels or clothes over your radiator to dry.
Is the Ecostrad VeeSmart programmable?1
The VeeSmart features a sophisticated thermal element with integrated Bluetooth functionality, allowing you to programme each radiator via your smartphone or tablet. By downloading the BlueLine heating app, you can pair any number of VeeSmart radiators to your mobile device and create a bespoke 24/7 heating schedule for every area of your home.
As every room in your home is used differently, you can save a lot more energy by creating schedules depending on how you use the space, rather than trying to heat every area of your house to the same level simultaneously.
The BlueLine heating app can be downloaded for free and is compatible with Android 4.4 and iOS 6 devices (or newer).
Can I control the VeeSmart via Wi-Fi?1
The VeeSmart’s KTX 4 Blue heating element uses a Bluetooth signal only, which means that you cannot use the heating app to control the radiator via the internet. Bluetooth signals are short-range and are not the same as Wi-Fi. This means that your mobile device will need to be in relatively close proximity to the heaters in order to communicate any updates to your programmed heating schedule.
You can still use the heating app to make changes to your heating schedule while you are outside of the range of the Bluetooth signal, however, the changes will only take effect once you are back within the receiving range of the KTX 4 heating element.
How do you install the VeeSmart?1
The VeeSmart radiator does not come with a fitted plug because it must be hardwired to the mains by a professional electrician. Installation of these radiators is not a DIY job because the heating element is not attached to the radiator body – additional assembly is required by a competent installer.
Though you will need the services of a qualified professional, installation of the VeeSmart is a fairly quick and simple task, and appreciably less expensive than integrating it into an existing central heating system. Please be aware that many of our VeeSmart radiators can be heavy as they arrive pre-filled with the thermal oil element and because of this we highly recommend having another person assist with installation. It will not be a one-man job in most instances.
VeeSmart radiators are suitable for use in bathrooms, however, the manufacturer recommends fitting them at least 1m away from any source of water to prevent the surface from corroding.
Can I dry clothes or towels on a vertical Ecostrad VeeSmart?1
As you can imagine, vertical towel rails do not lend themselves well to drying clothes and towels unless you enjoy using them as an improvised ring-toss game. However, it is possible to use vertical radiators as a towel rail with the addition of a relatively cheap accessory. Steel vertical radiators with a flat front, such as our vertical VeeSmart, are compatible with magnetic towel rails that can be quickly and easily placed onto the front of the radiator with no complex installation. Please note, we do not stock these accessories, although they are readily available elsewhere.
If you do decide to hang clothes on your vertical VeeSmart electric radiator, please ensure you adhere to the following information:
Some fabrics, such as polyester, cannot withstand high temperatures and should not be dried on radiators. Drying unsuitable fabrics on radiators can cause damage to the clothes and the surface of the radiator. Do not hang fabrics with running dyes or fabrics soaked in chemicals on the VeeSmart – these can cause permanent damage to the finish of the radiator. The warranty for the VeeSmart does not cover damage caused by failure to adhere to these rules or by any damage caused through use of any 3rd party accessories with the heater.
It’s important to note that not all electric radiators are suitable for drying clothes on! The Ecostrad VeeSmart is in the small minority where this can be done safely – another reason why they’re so convenient. The reason you can hang clothes on the VeeSmart is because they have fully enclosed bodies and an unobstructed thermostat at the base of the heater. This is not the case for most electric radiators. Always adhere to the manufacturer’s guidelines before drying clothes on any electric heater to avoid a serious fire hazard.

Manuals & Installation
The VeeSmart is designed for a professional, hardwired fitting only and is not supplied with a plug for this very reason. The radiator must be hardwired into a fused spur. Attaching a plug to the cable will void the warranty.
Download or view the Ecostrad VeeSmart specification.
The radiator body and the heating element will arrive in the same box, but will need to be connected by your installer. Please be aware that the larger sizes are heavy, so you may need two people to lift and mount your radiators. Please note that our 1000w horizontal VeeSmart electric radiators come fitted with 2 x Terma KTX 4 Blue heating elements. To access the full programming capabilities of the VeeSmart, a compatible Bluetooth enabled mobile device is required.
VeeSmart radiators are rated IPX5 and can be installed in a suitable bathroom location by a professional electrician. They must be hardwired and wall-mounted in a location at least 1m away from water sources to prevent surface corrosion. For further installation information, please see the VeeSmart mounting guide and product dimensions.
We always advise consulting a qualified electrician before having multiple radiators or heaters connected to avoid overloading the ring main of your property. If you are at all unsure about the scale of your project, a professional will be able to provide in-depth guidance.
All Ecostrad VeeSmart radiators come with an 8 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty on the powder-coated finish and a separate 2 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty on the electronic heating element.
