This is one of the most common heating conundrums: how to heat rooms with high ceilings? Whether you have gas central heating or electric heating, rooms with high ceilings or large windows will always have specific heating requirements. Fortunately, Haverland found a way to tackle this problem and have implemented a uniquely designed electric radiator. Read on to discover how to deal with heating high-ceilinged rooms!
The main problem with heating high-ceilinged rooms is purely scientific. Heat rises: an inconvenient trait, but not so problematic in rooms with low ceilings. You might occasionally notice that your toes are the last part of your body to get warm and cosy, but nothing more serious. However, in rooms with high ceilings, heat escaping upwards becomes a big issue. You don’t want to be heating the ceiling while leaving the ground level cold, but that’s usually the case. Most of the heat will gather in the upper half of the room, either leaving the bottom half cold or forcing your heater to work extra hard, thus consuming more electricity.
The second serious problem with heating high ceilinged rooms requires us to do some mathematics. The room you’re planning on heating might be a relatively small one, let’s go with an example of 6m² at ground level. If it was a room with a standard ceiling height, the volume of air you’d have to heat would be around 16m³. In the case of a room which is two storeys high, this number greatly increases, and you end up looking at heating a volume of air as large as 60m³! Unfortunately, when it comes to rooms with high ceilings, our radiator calculator won’t be of much help. So what is the best electric radiator for your troublesome hallways, staircases and open plan offices?
Our Technotherm KS electric radiators are designed to efficiently heat those hard-to-heat spaces. Ceramic elements within the radiator bodies heat up fast and push out heat at a higher intensity than that achieved by conventional radiators, thus ensuring that every corner of your room is warm. Their slim housings easily fit in small hallways and stairways, and their timeless design perfectly blends in with any interior design – whether it’s vintage, modern or traditional. Just like most of our heaters, the Technotherm KS features smart technology that is bound to make your life easier and help you reduce the energy usage in your household or business. A highly accurate thermostat maintains your desired comfort temperature by switching the radiator on and off, ensuring that the temperatures don’t dip too high or too low. This means that instead of working at full power at all times, our KS radiator only has to be switched on for a fraction of the time. Meanwhile, the in-built 24/7 programmer allows you to decide exactly when your radiators will heat during the day. Combining these two features together will allow you to make significant savings on your electricity bills. With multiple available sizes to choose from, you’ll easily find an efficient Technotherm electric radiator to keep all of your hard-to-heat spaces warm!
