Freestanding Electric Radiators
Most of our electric radiators can be mounted on feet or casters to provide a free-standing fitting. Freestanding electric radiators can be useful in rental properties, conservatories, caravans, and spare bedrooms. With lightweight radiators from only 5kg, plug in radiators make an excellent portable heating solution. We also stock portable oil-filled electric radiators that provide improved heat retention and distribution – an ideal choice for occasional heating. All of our free standing electric radiators, except our range of portable oil-filled electric radiators, can also be wall mounted, so you always have the option of switching to a more permanent fitting.

How do I install freestanding electric radiators?
Freestanding electric radiators can be set up in seconds, enabling portable heating that you can take with you wherever you go. Most of the freestanding radiators in our range, such as the Haverland RC Wave and SmartWave, can be purchased with clip-on feet that simply snap into position at the base of the heaters. Once fitted, all that’s left is for you to plug your chosen heater into the nearest wall socket. If you decide on a permanent location to use your electric radiators, they can even be wall mounted with ease and come with all necessary fixtures and fittings. If you need to use your heating freestanding again, simply take them off the wall and mount them back onto their feet; it couldn’t be simpler.
Can I leave a freestanding electric radiator running all night?
While you can comfortably leave electric radiators to run all night, freestanding electric radiators risk overheating if they’re tipped over by accident. Typically, electric radiator thermostats are located on the outside of their casings, towards the bottom of the heaters. These thermostats measure air temperature and instruct the heaters when to heat. If your freestanding electric radiator fell over, the thermostat may be obstructed and send inaccurate readings, which could result in your spaces being too warm and, in extreme cases, your radiator may overheat. Due to this, freestanding electric radiators should not be left to run overnight. If you want to leave your heating to run unattended, wall mounting your electric radiators is the best option as this ensure the thermostat is clear from any potential obstructions.
