How to get the heating right in winter
With the arrival of winter and the drop in temperatures, it is time to start thinking about heating and preparing the house for the winter season. We all like to have a cozy and comfortable home after arriving from work, and for this, there are many options on the market to get the heating right in winter. It is important to take into account aspects such as the size of the house, the budget, what time of day we will be there or even where it is located. All this will influence which product to choose and in today’s blog I will tell you everything you need to be able to select the correct product.
This type of article is in a great boom because it is a small product which can be changed rooms at any time and taken where you want comfortably, in addition, they tend to have a very low consumption contributing to savings. On the contrary, its use is very limited since it only provides heat in small rooms or a very small group of people.
It is vitally important that these heaters have a power of around 1500W, that they include protection against overheating for total safety and that they also include a fresh air function so that it can also be used on summer days.
Radiators with wheels
Like compact heaters, radiators have a very good reputation among consumers as they can be moved around the room comfortably thanks to their wheels and have the ability to emit more heat over a larger surface than the previous ones. They are also ideal if you are looking for a totally silent device that does not emit any type of air, smoke or odors.
This type of heating system has the advantage that it is much safer than those that use gas or fuels and include a thermostat and a programmer.
It could be said that electric convectors are a mixture of the two previous devices since they have the ability to heat the air that passes through their resistances and at the same time expels it throughout the room through their ventilation system. They do not need any type of installation, they emit heat instantly when they are turned on, offer low consumption and have a built-in thermostat.
They are very practical for small rooms such as kitchens or the bathroom. On the contrary, they have the disadvantage that they are not ideal if you want to heat a large room.
I offer you these two convectors in white or black with a built-in led screen and that are capable of heating rooms of up to 15 square meters quickly thanks to their 1500W power.
If what you are looking for is a heating system that can also be used as a decorative element, this powerful fireplace-shaped convector with two power levels is what you need for your living room or bedroom. In addition, it includes a remote control for total comfort.
Currently we can fundamentally differentiate between two types of stoves, gas and electric quartz.
The first is the traditional option, with the ability to heat large rooms quickly. They are an increasingly safe and efficient product, but they have the disadvantage that they need periodic maintenance. If you are a classic and you want to enjoy the gas heating,
On the other hand we have quartz stoves, they have the advantage that they are safer, do not require any maintenance and are easier to transport. They are perfect for when a close and close heat is needed. They have the disadvantage that direct contact can lead to accidents or burns.
There are also heating items manufactured exclusively for outdoor use. Perfect for use in outdoor areas such as the garden or terrace.
If you have a business like a cafeteria or restaurant, they will also serve you and your customers will thank you. It has the great advantage that they are capable of heating a very large surface of between 10 – 35 square meters and are usually very resistant.
You must bear in mind that if you opt for this option you have to have enough space to store
Tips and prevention
When choosing one product or another, it is very important to consider the space you want to heat to know the power you will need. You can use this guide as a reference:
(Between 12 and 16 m2 = 1200-1500W; 24-28 m2 = 2500-3000 W and from 40m2 onwards, 4000W).
Heaters should not be covered with anything to avoid burning objects or starting a fire. If you are going to use a heater in humid environments, make sure that it has protection in these environments and that it has a sufficient safety distance so that water does not enter it.
As for gas, ventilate the rooms after using a stove since the gas decreases oxygen and increases carbon dioxide levels at the same time.
Remember that safety always comes first, keeping heating devices in good condition and using them correctly will guarantee the safety of the user.
