How Electric Cast Iron Radiators work
While many electric radiators are oil-filled, Electric cast iron radiators use a water-based thermal fluid that can be heated steadily. That allows them to radiate heat more evenly for longer periods, ensuring that you get full room overage without cold spots or draft-prone corners.
The heating element inside the radiators emits a low and steady heat to sustain the fluid’s temperature inside. Each radiator’s temperature can be set manually on the unit or programmed digitally with infrared remote control. The remote has daily and weekly timers built-in, set for up to 4 operating periods per day.
A hybrid approach to heating
A mix of low-power electric element and dual heating technology makes electric cast iron radiators more energy efficient than standard electric panel heaters.
The columns are designed to store heat and conduct it gradually, radiating evenly using heat convection and air currents. This delivers all the benefits of central heating plus the convenience of electric. Under normal usage, the heating element is only needed intermittently to maintain a steady temperature. That lowers daily power consumption dramatically.
Electric cast iron radiators can also be activated by a central home heating thermostat. Modern thermostatic controllers allow for zones to be set up, and if the temperature drops below the threshold in a specific zone, the central controller will activate all the radiators in that zone to bring the temperature up to the required level.
