The working of a German Heater
The electrical elements of a German heater are encased with ceramic (non-porous fireclay) heating plates. When the elements of the radiator heat up, they transfer the heat the heat plates that are further transferred to the surface of the radiator that is radiant in nature. As the core gets hot, the cold air is sucked into the flutes and convection heat is created. The heat is regularly generated and conserved in the heater. The multiple ceramic or fireclay plates that are placed in the centre of the radiator are responsible for the retention of heat.
As the German Heater is switched on, its element gets heated and also heats the storage plate in no time at all. Once the heat plate gets heated, it remains heated for a period of 30 minutes. This heat is transferred to the metal casing as well as the flutes in the radiator.
Benefits of using a German Heater
The benefits of the German Heaters are the biggest reason you must use them. The German heaters are:
- Absolutely maintenance friendly
- Completely controllable
- Have automatic controls
- Easy to Install
- Have a good warranty period
- Do not require fuel storage
- Do not have problems of exhaust gases and thus have no smells
- Ideal as they work on the model of conserving heat
- They do not have servicing costs
- They can be used in two ways-wall mounted or free standing
- They have high performance
- They are durable and have a long lifespan.
The use of quality materials in the built and their excellent construction are some other benefits. They are available in a number of colours to suit the different interiors of the houses and offices.
