Heating a Kitchen with Electric Radiators

Stylish, compact and easy to use, our range of electric radiators offer the perfect heating solution for your kitchen. When placed in an environment where temperatures can change rapidly, our intelligent systems really come into their own.

Electrical Kitchen Radiators

Why Choose a Kitchen Electric Radiator?

Your kitchen is subjected to more changes in temperature than almost any other room in your home. Our fully controllable designs mean that you can schedule or manually control each area, offering superior usability to the one-size-fits-all approach of older heating methods.

Your radiator will monitor your kitchen, adapting to rising and falling temperatures and making sure that it’s just how you like it.

Benefits of Choosing Electrical Radiators for Kitchens


Accurate thermostat and microchip technology

Appliances such as hobs and grills will be turned on at different times of the day, causing temperature fluctuations in your room. To combat this, you need a form of kitchen heating that is going to respond quickly to shifts in its environment. High quality electrical radiators such as the Ultra Slimline fit the bill perfectly. They can even be fitted throughout your home for the ultimate heating flexibility.

We pride ourselves on the accuracy of the thermostats we use in our radiators. Choose your desired room temperature and the radiator will maintain it. Not only this, it will use the minimum amount of electricity required to do so, thanks to its microchip 'optimiser'.

They’re easy to program- you can even do it from your mobile phone

Our radiators feature a digital control panel which allows you to program your heating quickly and easily. You can set a desired temperature for every hour of the day, meaning your kitchen will be as warm as you want it to be, when you want it to be. Having people over for dinner? You can manually override the programmed temperature at the touch of a button.

For even more control, our new and improved Ultra Slimline can be operated from an app on your phone. This means you can change its settings from the comfort of your chair, sofa or bed.

They provide rapid and evenly distributed heating

Economy Radiators have patent-pending technology which allows us to mould multiple heating elements into the aluminium body of the radiator. This helps to warm your kitchen rapidly and evenly through a combination of radiated and convected heat. Running a constant, slightly cooler temperature overnight will help your radiators reach your desired temperature even faster, so you’ll feel comfortable when it’s time to cook or relax.

Easy to install

Our radiators are powered by the mains electricity in your home and can plug directly into standard 13 amp sockets for ease of use. When combined with the radiator’s lightweight body, the result is a fast installation and placement almost anywhere you want in your kitchen. You don’t need to worry about plumbing or boiler capacity like with gas central heating, or the cost and disruption involved in the installation of underfloor heating.

Electric Heating for Kitchens: Radiator Locations

 

Before choosing to use electricity to heat your kitchen, it’s important to not only understand the benefits it offers, but also the correct place to install the radiators to ensure you’re getting the best value for money.

As we've already mentioned, one of the main benefits of our electric radiators is that they are powered by plugging them directly into a socket. This means you won’t need to worry about plumbing or pipes when positioning your radiator.

Ultimately, the right place to install the radiator will depend on your needs as well as the size and shape of your kitchen. Our kitchen radiators will work best when placed underneath a window on an external wall. However, if your home is a new build or a particularly well-insulated and energy efficient property, you will have a bit more flexibility when it comes to the best place to put your radiator.

What size radiator do I need?

To ensure you are heating your kitchen as efficiently as possible, the radiator you choose will need to be the correct wattage and size. This will depend on the following:

  • The size of the room
  • The quality of the home’s insulation

Small, well-insulated rooms won’t require the same level of wattage as a larger room with poor insulation. This in turn means that your radiator can be smaller and less bulky.

For example, if your kitchen is well insulated and 9 square metres in size, you will need the 750 watt 580mm x 610mm radiator.

We want to provide the best solution for our customers, which is why our Ultra Slimline Electric Radiator is available in a range of sizes. It caters for rooms between 5 square metres to 21 square metres in size.
