Unleash the Potential of Compact Spaces
The slender and streamlined form of our vertical electric radiators makes them perfect for narrow walls and compact areas. With their modest 117mm depth, they free up valuable floor space in room layouts where every inch counts.
Bathrooms, hallways, kitchens and more feel airier and less cramped.
And the gently rising warmth from our vertical radiators keeps these small yet pivotal spaces cosy.
Convection Heating for Comfort
Vertical orientation optimizes the natural convection process for heating efficiency. As air at the base of the radiator warms, it gently rises upwards, pulling fresh cool air behind it. This creates a continual flow of warmth through the room.
Strategically positioned air vents assist this motion, ensuring your space feels comfortably temperate from floor to ceiling. Convection heating provides truly enveloping warmth without hot or cold spots.
Intuitive Controls for Precision
Take command of your heating comfort with our user-friendly thermostatic controllers. Set automated heating schedules tailored to your lifestyle, with customizable comfort levels for daytime and overnight modes.
Or manually override settings as needed with the intuitive dial interface. With open window detection and adaptive start built-in, our clever controllers help reduce energy wastage too.
Grants and Incentives Made Accessible
Finance the switch to electric heating with schemes and incentives from the UK government and leading energy suppliers. The Boiler Upgrade Scheme provides households in England and Wales with vouchers worth £5,000 or more to support the installation of low-carbon heating replacements when replacing a gas boiler.
And for vulnerable households struggling with energy costs, grants are available through schemes like Warmer Homes Scotland. Improving the efficiency of your existing heating can qualify too. Our advisors are happy to offer detailed guidance on any schemes, discounts and exemptions you may be eligible for.
Save Energy and Money
Little adjustments to how you operate your heating can save energy and lower bills too:
Set programming to provide warmth only during times of occupancy
Allow some cooling of rooms before reheating
Use smart thermostatic radiator valves for room-by-room control
Insulate walls, floors and pipes to prevent heat loss
And don’t overlook basic maintenance like bleeding radiators or replacing filters and seals when worn.
