Your rooms need to be warm and comfortable all year round, so it is important to fit the correct size and number of heaters.
If your home is new, it may be possible to calculate the heat loss with U-values, which are a measure of insulation. It is then possible to calculate the wattage required, however it is still necessary to decide the best place for your heaters to be installed.
Most customers are unlikely to have the U-values for their home so we have put together the following guidelines to help decide which heaters to buy.
You must 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 below which best describes your room and multiple the size by the wattage required.
Example: 11.1m2 x 80w (new, well insulated) = 888w
Then you should 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.
Still unsure what size or model of heater to choose? No problem - call the team at Ducasa Direct - a family business with over a decades experience and here to offer friendly, free and honest advice.
