We sell electric radiators in a range of sizes, with models to suit rooms both large and small. Radiators with a higher wattage have a greater heat output and may be needed to achieve comfort temperatures in larger rooms. Each of our radiator ranges includes radiators with higher and lower wattages: these radiators typically look identical but are longer, wider, or have more heating panels.
However, all the radiators in each range will have the same depth – in almost all cases, a radiator of 1700w will be just as slim as a 450w radiator in the same range. You can calculate the total wattage required to heat your room using our interactive radiator calculator. The calculator will work out your required wattage based on the dimensions of the room and the type of property you live in. You will then need to find a radiator, or combination of radiators, that adds up to the required wattage.
Do not be tempted to choose smaller radiators than recommended – even in those rooms where space is at a premium. Under-specifying your heating may mean you cannot heat your rooms to the required temperatures. It will also mean that your radiators have to work harder and less efficiently, inflating your running costs unnecessarily.
