Heating seems to always be a big topic of discussion. With rising prices in gas, and increasingly strict regulations regarding central heating systems, more and more people are moving to energy efficient electric heaters as a sole source of heat and heating products in their homes. Although overall, the cost of electric heating is slightly more than gas, there are many great benefits that can save you time, money and hassle.

How to Work Out Which Radiator is for You
Choosing the correct radiator for any given room can be daunting.
There are many things to consider, however, we can help you decide what output (wattage) you would need for you to heat up your room effectively.
All you need to remember is the size of the room (metres squared) multiplied by 100w.
If we have a room that is 20 metres squared here is what the equasion would look like.
e.g. 20m2 x 100w = 2000w
With the example above, to heat the room effectively, we would need a radiator with an output of 2000w.
Below, we've created a handy wattage calculator that will quickly calculate the wattage required for your room. If in doubt, we advise that you round the measurements up to the nearest metre and if you need any extra help, give us a call on 0333 456 7895 where we'd be happy to assist you.
