Electric radiators are making their revolution. Loaded with sensors, new electric heaters are now more energy efficient, more economical and more eco-friendly.
Producing a gentle and homogenous heat thanks to new technologies, the latest generation electric radiators are also becoming less energy-consuming. They offer up to 25% energy savings compared to conventional convectors. Provided it is equipped with a good regulation-programming chasing the slightest waste of kilowatt-hours.
Infrared sensors: Long live tuning!
Radiators manage themselves. No need to adjust the thermostat to accommodate comings and goings, air intakes and sudden changes in temperature. Thanks to the combination of movement and light sensors, they detect human absence in a radius of 5 m and reduce their temperature gradually for an energy saving of up to 15% compared to a conventional model. They can also detect the opening of a door or window, triggering the frost-free mode. What save up to 4% on heating consumption.
The advantage of the digital network
Digital technology has also revolutionized the radiator programming systems in a home. No need to run from room to room to solve them, it is also useless to invest in the installation of an expensive and sophisticated home automation system, the technology of powerline communication (PLC) allows to transmit information via the electrical network . The principle is simple: we connect CPL boxes to the jacks and voila. You control the entire installation with a remote control or a remote thermostat. We can even manage up to three different heating zones. Technologies that reduce its bill, and its taxes since some "energy management devices" are part of the tax credit system (information on www.developpement-durable.gouv.fr).
