When people think of electric radiators, they either think of cheap convector heaters or old fashioned storage heaters. But for those who need an affordable, reliable alternative to gas central heating there is another option. Ceramic radiators from VeriSmart Heating, combine the thermal performance of storage heaters with the controllability of modern electric radiators.
So what makes a ceramic radiator special?
1) High thermal inertia.
Inertia means resistance to change. So in the case of thermal inertia, this means once it’s warm it stays warms for a long time. Some materials have low thermal inertia. For example, water cools very quickly and some materials, like ceramic cool slowly. The main advantage of this in a radiator is that the ceramic core maintains its temperature long after the radiator has stopped drawing power.
This can been observed in this thermal imaging video. The video is a time lapsed recording of two radiators cooling down after being switched off. It is clear that the EcoHeat radiator stays warmer for a lot longer.
2) No leaks
The beauty of ceramic radiators is they don’t contain any fluid and therefore you will never need to worry about expensive leaks. This is great for homeowners and landlords alike, who don’t need the hassle of cleaning up leaked oil and redecorating.
3) Great for older properties
The high thermal inertia of the ceramic makes it great for properties which themselves have high thermal inertia. Houses with thick stone walls also take a while to warm up, but once warm they stay warm for longer. This is ideally suited to the thermal performance of the dense ceramic core of the EcoHeat.
If you are always on the go and would like to be able to control your ceramic electric radiators from your phone or laptop, the EcoWifi is the one for you. If you have a more modern property, with good insulation and smaller rooms, the EcoSlimline or EcoCurve will do the trick. They have slightly slightly less ceramic than the EcoHeat and is one of the slimmest electric radiators on the market. The finned convection element gets the room up temperature quickly and then maintains it by releasing heat from the ceramic blocks.
