Not all electric radiators are the same. So how does electric heating work? The most important factors when heating any room is the radiator’s effectiveness in converting the electrical energy that’s going into it to heat coming out, both radiated and convected heat, both of which are needed to heat a room effectively.Request a FREE info pack and home survey today
The ELKAtherm radiator does this by its fluted system, which increases the surface area of the radiator by five times and produces strong convection, so that you will experience a difference in temperature between a floor and the ceiling of less than one degree.
In addition, ELKAtherm radiators have a hybrid ceramic clay core.
Ceramic has two properties when it comes to heating. First it heats up very quickly so you get fast response times. This means you only need to heat rooms as and when you want to use them.
And the second property ceramic has is once it’s hot it retains the heat for quite a long time. This means the radiators are not on permanently, costing you money to heat your room.
Independent tests, with an outside temperature of 6 degrees and an indoor temperature of 21 degrees, shows that your ELKAtherm radiator shouldn’t be on for more than 30% of the time.
ELKAtherm electric radiators all have their own independent thermostatic control, this means that you can heat a room to the desired temperature, whatever time of the day you wish.

- Each Elkatherm electric radiator has a non-porous, ceramic core – a Chamotte block – that contains up to 20 heat plates. The block not only retains heat but also heats up quickly, using the minimum amount of electricity. From switching on power to maximum heat takes an astonishing 5 minutes – significantly better than the 7 hours it takes a night storage heater to heat up
- Every single ceramic block is hand tested to make sure it displaces, rather than absorbs, water – very important in a damp British climate. Beware imitations – the ELKAtherm block is non-porous, unlike inferior alternatives on the marketplace.
- Each ceramic block distributes heat evenly across the entire face of the heater, due to the unique ELKAtherm design.
- ELKAtherm electric radiators have a large fluted surface area to radiate heat. Their surface area is larger than that of wet central heating radiators because the flutes are welded to both sides of the housing only 1cm apart. The result is that more heat is radiated throughout the room.
