How does the RC Wave work?1
The RC Wave is an exceptionally efficient electric radiator which uses dry thermal technology to warm up fast and distribute heat around the room.
The radiator is made from high grade recycled aluminium with fully enclosed aluminium elements. These aluminium elements warm both the surface of the radiator and the air inside the room, distributing heat through a combination of radiation and convection – warming you directly whilst also raising the ambient temperature of the room. Because the elements are fully enclosed there is no chance of wall blackening – which can be a problem with less advanced electric radiators. There’s also no chance that the radiators will ever leak. The aluminium elements inside the radiator are very responsive, heating up fast and cooling down quickly, making them easily controllable with the RC Wave’s thermostat and timer. Rooms warm up quickly, evenly and efficiently, reaching comfort temperatures in minutes.
What size are RC Wave electric radiators?1
Our RC Wave electric radiators are part of our designer range: slimline and stylish with an elegant contemporary design, they are only 7.4cm deep.
RC Wave electric radiators are available in a range of sizes with models to suit rooms both large and small. Choose from 450w, 800w, 1100w, 1400w and 1700w radiators. You can use our radiator wattage calculator to choose the best sizes for your room.
Are RC Wave radiators programmable?1
The RC Wave is fully programmable with a 24/7 programmable timer and a highly accurate digital thermostat.
The programmable timer allows you to set a personalised heating schedule for every day of the week, whilst the digital thermostat will maintain your set temperatures by switching the radiator off and on as the temperature rises and falls. Each radiator can be controlled separately, allowing you to “zone” the heat in your home. These control features make the RC Wave a very economical heating solution, allowing you to cut your energy usage and heating bills down to an absolute minimum.
The RC Wave is also available with a remote control as an optional extra.
How do you install the RC Wave?1
The RC Wave can be fitted on the wall or used free-standing.
Electric radiators for wall fitting are suitable for DIY installation. All you have to do is screw them into the wall and plug them into the nearest socket – it couldn’t be easier! Alternatively, if you prefer a more discreet fitting, the radiators can be hardwired into the wall by a professional electrician.
If you want to use the RC Wave freestanding you will need to purchase with an optional set of feet.
What warranty comes with the RC Wave?1
Every radiator in the Haverland RC Wave range comes with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty on the radiator body and three years warranty on electronic components and controllers. The radiators use only the highest quality materials and benefit from many years of Haverland's manufacturing excellence. We are truly confident that this is a product that will satisfy your heating needs for life.
Because we choose our range of electric radiators with great care, problems are very rare – but our guarantees give you complete peace of mind that in the event of any problems your radiator will be covered.

Manuals & Installation

The RC Wave was updated in 2018 to reflect new EU energy-efficiency regulations. If you have an older version of the RC Wave, purchased before 2018, you can download the original manual here.
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.
All Haverland Designer RC Wave Electric Radiators come with a 3 Year 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
The Haverland Designer RC Wave is our best-selling electric radiator. A stylish contemporary design, advanced digital programming and fast heat-up times put the RC Wave in a league above other electric heating solutions. This exceptional electric radiator can be used throughout your home or business for energy-efficient, comfortable heating.
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. Our radiators come with full programming instructions, lockable built-in control panel and the option to purchase a remote control which allows you to program all your radiators without leaving your seat. 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.
A new feature recently added to the RC Wave makes it even easier to save energy as you heat your home. Our flagship electric radiator now boasts open window detection, which is designed to slim down your heating bills without any user input. With open window detection, you're well-protected in the event that you leave a door or window open by accident: this function will prevent your radiator from wasting heat by switching to anti-frost mode until it detects a rise in temperature.
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.
You can find out more about RC Wave by reading our customer reviews or checking out our own in-depth, hands-on expert review!
The RC Wave allows you to create a schedule for every hour of every day of the week, so that your heating is completely in tune with the rhythm of your home. Assign comfort mode when you know you’ll be home and enjoy warm and cosy rooms set to your ideal temperature – or, assign economy mode to periods when you know you’re going to be absent to slim your monthly bills and keep wasted energy to a minimum. It’s an intuitive, energy-saving way of keeping warm that’ll help cut costs.
Unlike other heating systems that can sometimes be out by up to 3 °C, the RC Wave uses a digital thermostat to monitor your room temperature with exceptional precision, so you won’t waste energy by overheating your space. With an accuracy of ±0.2 °C, the RC Wave never lets temperatures drift too far away from your comfort setting and also means it stops drawing power the second it reaches its target.
While the majority of heating systems take up valuable room, the RC Wave can be installed in the tightest of spaces, with its minute 75mm depth and lean, compact frame. Make use of those awkward or otherwise wasted spaces that won’t accommodate other radiators and be free to choose exactly where you want your heating. With the super-slim RC Wave, nowhere is off limits.
Save money on a day-to-day basis with the RC Wave’s intelligent open window sensor. The RC Wave knows to stop heating if it detects a strong draught, waiting until the temperature equalises before continuing – only heating when it knows you’ll feel the benefit. This automatic feature does the hard work for you so sit back, relax and enjoy luxuriantly heated rooms without any effort.
The RC Wave will keep you warm year in, year out, without any maintenance or call-outs required – just reliable heating time after time. That’s why the RC Wave comes with a lifetime guarantee on the radiator body – helping you to purchase with confidence, safe in the knowledge your heating is protected from day-to-day use.
