    Haverland RC Wave Electric Radiators are easy to install with the most basic of DIY knowledge. They simply screw to the wall and plug into a normal 13amp socket. Each radiator is supplied with wall plugs, screws and a template to show you exactly where fittings should be placed. All you need to do is drill four holes, mount the radiator on the brackets supplied, and plug into the nearest socket. It really is that simple.

    We do not recommend electric radiators or panel heaters 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.

    Care must always be taken when connecting multiple radiators or heaters to avoid overloading the ring main of your property. If you are unsure, contact a qualified electrician for advice. For a professional installation, cables can be shortened and the heater connected to the mains supply by a fused spur. This work must be carried out by a qualified electrician.

  • Warranty
    All Haverland Designer RC Wave Electric Radiators come with a 3 Years Manufacturer's Warranty and Lifetime Warranty on the radiator body (subject to manufacturer's terms and conditions). 1 Year Warranty for Haverland accessories.

  • What You Will Need

Haverland Designer RC Wave RC5W slimline digital electric radiators are energy-efficient with the latest dry thermal technology, a silent electronic TRIAC thermostat and fully programmable heating control. Dry thermal elements emit heat by a combination of convection (pushing heat around the room) and radiation (pushing heat out). The TRIAC thermostat is accurate to within 0.2 °C, so the radiator will switch on or off automatically to maintain a comfortable temperature. Fully programmable controls allow you to set a 7 day heating schedule to suit your lifestyle, with different settings for every hour of every day of the week, if needed! This allows you to minimise waste and keep your heating bills as low as possible.

Heating Technology & Programming

The RC Wave range is also mess-free, safe and easy to use. Dry thermal technology uses fully enclosed heating elements with no liquid or moving parts, so our radiators cannot leak, and will not lead to wall blackening. Our radiators come with full programming instructions and a lockable built-in control panel that allows for 24/7 programming, so you can schedule your heating on an hourly basis, seven days a week. Integrated computer memory ensures that your settings will not be lost if your radiator is disconnected from the mains for up to 4 hours – a useful safeguard in the event of a power cut. It also comes with extra features such as a baby care function, which reduces the output of the radiator by 50% for touch-safe heating; and open window detection, which cuts power to the heater when it senses a strong draught. For added comfort, the RC Wave also features an intuitive adaptive start function that conveniently pre-heats the room ahead of your set time, for the perfect temperature right when you need it.

Design & Quality

The ultra slim, stylish design of our radiators make them attractive, space-saving additions to your home. They're eco-friendly too: the 100% recyclable radiator body is made from high grade recycled aluminium. We’re so confident in the superior manufacturing quality of Haverland radiators that we offer the RC Wave with a lifetime guarantee on the radiator body – read the full warranty here .

The RC Wave is a more economical radiator than comparable Haverland ranges such as the RCA and RCE electric radiator range. The RCA range does not include programming features so each radiator must be purchased with an additional controller. RCE radiators do not come fitted with a plug, so must be fitted by a qualified electrician. With excellent in-built control facilities and suitability for DIY installation throughout the home, the RC Wave is not only a superior heating solution but a more economical choice for your home. 


Installation is simple and fast, a straight-forward DIY task. Simply screw to the wall and plug in at the nearest socket. If you prefer to install freestanding, a set of feet can be purchased separately. For more information, take a look at the complete RC Wave manual.

Available in five sizes: 450W, 800W, 1100W, 1400W & 1700W.
