Bedrooms are usually the room that gives away the most about one’s personality. Even though it’s most likely the last room you’ll show to your visitors, it will be completely personalised: from the bed covers, furniture, to the curtains and colours of your walls and accessories. And we all use our bedrooms differently: some of us will just limit its use to sleeping, while others will spend hours and hours reading or browsing the web in their beds. Some people might opt for a small office space in their bedroom, and others will choose to lay in their bed rather than on their sofas and watch Netflix all Saturday. There is no rule to how one uses their bedroom. So, how do we make sure that this special little room has an electric heating solution it will benefit from?
When it comes to electric heating in bedrooms, one method seems to be popular amongst our customers - a lot of people opt for storage heaters. There is no denial that storage heaters have a lot of appealing perks: they charge up overnight taking advantage of the cheaper night tariffs and release comfortable levels of heat during the day. Looking at the previous sentence, we can already see why a storage heater in not an ideal heating solution for your bedroom. Whilst an office can greatly benefit from a storage heater, because it operates during the hours when storage heaters release the most heat, a bedroom will certainly not. If you want to take advantage of your cheaper night tariffs, such as the economy 7, you might find that the levels of heat released by your heater are too high when it’s charging. Such warmth may be comfortable when you’re sat in a surgery or your living room, but it might be just too much for sleeping under a thick duvet. On the other hand, if you wish to read a book in your bed during the evening, your storage heaters might be already cold after releasing all of the warmth they stored...
Our quietest electric radiator: the Technotherm KS
We believe that the best heating solution for your bedroom is an electric radiator like the Technotherm KS. This range is particularly useful for areas where you need peace and quiet because the fins running down the side of these heaters have been individually hand-welded into place, greatly cutting down on any noise created by heat expansion. They keep sound to a minimum, offering quiet heating for bedrooms, and also provide a range of features to help your heating stay in sync with your nightly routine.
The programmers built into these heaters allow you to set up a heating routine, which is especially useful in your bedroom, as you can schedule the radiators to switch off an hour or so after your bedtime, and switch on an hour or so before you wake up. This way you’ll ensure that your bedroom is cosy when you’re falling asleep and when you wake up, saving you the pain of getting out of your bed and stepping into the cold. The thermostat on the other hand maintains your temperature at the level you want it and ensures that you’re not too warm or too cold when trying to fall asleep. With the timer and the thermostat, you’re guaranteed that:
1. your radiator is not heating your bedroom when it’s not being used
2. the temperature in your bedroom is always at the perfect level for your comfort
This means your system will never use energy when it’s not needed and also promotes good sleep throughout the night.
Silent heating with infrared panels
If you want to know that your heating isn’t going to make a sound, an infrared panel can also be a great option. These slimline heaters have a simple design which allows them to be 100% silent when running, and though they can take longer to warm a room compared to a radiator, they do provide distraction-free heating around the clock. An infrared panel would make a good choice if you’re a particularly light sleeper or have young children who have trouble settling, and if you need to keep your heat source out of reach, look for ceiling-mounted options that will ensure they’re out of harm’s way. Infrared panels don’t actually heat the air – they use radiant heat to warm you directly, which means that they don’t change the atmosphere in your rooms or encourage the movement of dust. This can be a particularly useful bonus if you find that your allergies are aggravated in winter when the heating is run more frequently, especially during the night when you’re trying to sleep.
