Many radiant heaters are equipped with anti-tip devices to prevent accidents. If the heater tips over, the device will detect this and switch off automatically. Preventing the heater from tipping over in the first place prevents objects in the vicinity of the heater from being damaged or burned. Leaving a device on indefinitely can cause permanent heat build-up. To prevent this, devices often have timers that turn off the device after a certain amount of time.
If you use a lot of radiant heaters, you can also make good use of a real timer function. The radiant heater switches itself on and off again and again automatically after a certain period of time. This increases security and ensures that less energy is consumed, but the room also cools down again and again during this time.
The radiant heater is waterproof, therefore also suitable for damp rooms (bathroom, laundry) or outdoors. Should be a radiant heater in one Bathroom installed, this must at least splash-proof be. Check the instructions on the packaging.
Number of heating stages
Radiant heaters have a different number of heating levels. At least three levels should be available. The more levels you have to select, the finer you can set the temperature. This is especially useful for small devices hanging on the changing table to keep babies warm, as they are very temperature sensitive.
Adjustable heating direction
In order to direct the heat exactly where you need it, radiant heaters should be adjustable. Without these, too much heat would be dissipated in the wrong direction, which could be put to better use with adjustable reflectors. Some models can rotate and tilt in multiple directions.
Radiant heaters with remote control for greater convenience of can be controlled anywhere. This is useful for any device that you mount on a wall or ceiling and is therefore difficult to reach. Even very modern devices can be connected via Smartphone steer. A radiant heater is ideal if there is no heater nearby.
Power (maximum wattage)
One important factor to consider when making a purchase is performance. Radiant heaters can only generate the required heat, if they are working properly. Models for outdoor use require a lot of power. Small radiant heaters (e.g. changing tables) are sufficient even with lower power. Always choose a device that corresponds to the size of the room so that the heat output is clearly noticeable. In very large rooms you should... heat multiple devices combined become. The power typically varies between 500 and 3000 watts, depending on the device model and size.
