Oil Filled Room Heaters
An oil-filled room heater is suitable if you want the temperature in your room to stay warm for a long time. It can be used in both big and small rooms. So how does an oil heater work? In an oil-filled heater, when an electrical current is supplied, electrons tumble through the wire, causing friction and heat. As the wire heats the oil, the radiator heats the room’s air.

The way convector heaters work is that a coil or a panel is used to heat the room through a process called convection. When a fan or blower-type room heater is turned toward the heat panel, warm air is spread all over the room. Convection heaters are filled with heat transfer coils to radiate heat from the outer surface. The thermostat adjusts the temperature. One of their best features is how little upkeep they require, as well as how seldom you’ll have to clean them. Read everything about heat convectors on our blog.
