What are traditional electric radiators?

Traditional electric radiators combine the functional design of conventional central heating radiators with the advanced control and efficiency of electric radiators. The resulting product is controllable, energy-efficient, and able to seamlessly integrate into any design scheme - offering a classic accent that looks the part alongside wet or electric heating systems. Whether you’re looking to extend your home and require something that matches your existing system, or you want to add a dash of nostalgic charm to your room, look no further than our range of traditional electric radiators.

Whether you’re looking to add additional heaters into an existing central heating system, fancy creating the perfect period property, or simply require an energy-efficient upgrade, our range of traditional electric radiators offers something for everyone. Underneath their conventional frames and pleated bodies, traditional electric radiators are made with the same high-quality components and cutting-edge technology as our contemporary electric radiators - offering detailed digital programming, energy-saving features, and effortlessly controllable heating as standard. Our most affordable traditional electric radiator, the Ecostrad Ecowärme, comes with open-window detection and adaptive start - making it the ideal choice for cost-effective home heating in style-conscious spaces. Whereas the Technotherm KS DSM, our most advanced traditional electric radiator, supports WiFi and Alexa voice control, comes with an innovative geolocation feature that turns your heating on and off depending on your proximity, and offers access to your energy-use statistics via the Technotherm heating app. Intelligent, controllable, and energy-efficient, traditional electric radiators offer more than just nostalgic appearances - providing a comprehensive heating system that’s designed for the demands of 21st century living.

Long-lasting, energy-efficient heat

The majority of our traditional electric radiators use heat retentive ceramic stones within their housings to provide enduring, energy-efficient warmth. Once warm, these ceramic tablets radiate heat into the room and maintain temperatures long after the heaters have stopped drawing power. This provides an energy-efficient means of keeping warm that’s perfect for high-ceiling rooms and tricky to heat spaces in older properties.
