An oil filled radiator is a type of heater that uses convection and radiation to generate a gentle form of heat. They are also very energy-efficient and can help reduce your electricity bills as they consume less than central heating radiators. These heaters aren’t connected to the mains and can therefore be positioned anywhere in your home. Many of our models are portable and come with a handle and wheels to allow for easy movement, although they can also be fixed to the wall if preferred.
Inside the body and fin of these heaters is diathermic oil that stores heat so it doesn’t need to be refilled. The electricity that runs through the radiator is channeled into a resistor that converts it to heat and then transfers it to the oil. This heats up and then continues to transfer warmth to the room even after the radiator has been switched off.
The best part about an oil filled radiator is that they don’t require a lot of maintenance. They are incredibly durable and can last for a very long time, provided they’re not exposed to any mechanical damage such as being dropped or knocked around.
They’re also very safe and can be left on overnight as the electrical element will be fully submerged in the thermal oil. Modern electric oil heaters also come with advanced safety features such as overheat protection and tilt switches that will turn the unit off if it gets too hot or loses its balance. oil filled radiator
