How many heaters?
To ensure your rooms are warm and comfortable all year round it is important to fit the correct size and number of heaters.
With a newly built property, it may be possible to calculate the heat loss with U-values which are a measure of insulation and then calculate the wattage required, however it is still necessary to decide the best place to install your heaters.
As most people do not have the U-values of their homes we have put together the following guidelines to help you decide which heaters to buy.
First work out the size of your room by measuring the length and width then multiply the two numbers.
When you know the size, simply choose the box which best describes your room and multiple the size by the wattage required.
Example: 11.1m2 x 80w (new, well insulated) = 888w
Next choose the heater model and the wattage which best suits your requirements. It’s unlikely our heater wattages will match your requirements exactly, so always best to choose the next size up.
All our heaters have thermostats which will switch off the heater when the room is warm enough, so running costs won’t increase.
