Tubular heaters are an effective, reliable, safe and affordable solution for places where central heating is not possible or for tackling cold rooms and hard to heat areas.
These small, tube-shaped heaters come in a range of sizes from 1-foot to 6-foot long and the clever space-saving design means that they take up little to no room, making them uniquely suited to heat small and awkward places where space is limited. This dynamic heating source can be either floor or wall mounted which is ideal for things such as caravans, closets, animal enclosures and sheds.
Tubular heaters can be purchased both with or without a built-in 3 pin socket. Without a socket means that you can wire them straight into the mains and with a socket allows for incredibly simple set up – just plug into a socket and switch it on. No mess, no fuss, no expensive setup fees or professional installation required to get you started.
How do tubular heaters work?
Tubular heaters contain a heating element which heats up from the inside and radiates outwards when it is switched on. They do not produce instant high heat but rather provide a constant, low level background heat which requires very little energy to run and therefore works out very cost-efficient.
Where can tube heaters be used?
These are the perfect solution for people looking for an affordable and effective way to heat small and hard to reach spaces in the home that do not feel the benefit or cannot be reached by the central heating. This can be walk-in wardrobes, conservatories, utility rooms, cloakrooms, spare bedrooms, attics and more.
Because of how safe they are to use, tubular heaters are also widely used for outbuildings and animal enclosures such as sheds, greenhouses, garages, kennels, stables, playhouses and more.
Any rooms or areas that are prone to damp and condensation can be greatly reduced with the help of this low wattage heating solution that can prevent the issues that lead to unwanted mould and associated problems.
Tubular heaters with thermostatic controls
Tube Heaters can come with built in thermostats or alternatively there are electronic thermostats available that they can be plugged into. These are a great way to ensure that you maintain an even temperature and reduce the space from getting too warm or exceeding the necessary heat requirements which can waste energy and money.
Most thermostats include a programmable timer that allows users to set the target temperature for multiple time periods repeated over 24 hours. This allows for more flexibility of when the heater switches on and off and at what temperature it is set for such as being set to only come on when there’s a frost risk.
The addition of a thermostat control allows this already effective and inexpensive heating option, to become even more efficient by ensuring that heat is provided exactly when it’s required and that money and energy isn’t being wasted when it is not necessary.
