When winter arrives or those unexpected cold days, you want to be at home sheltered and warm. So that you are not caught by surprise we bring you the best selection of oil radiators of 2022
We do not always have a centralized heating system or perhaps we do not want to activate it because it is a specific cold moment or we simply need to heat a specific space in the house.
In these cases, oil radiators are a very good option.
Oil radiators are a good option if we don’t have a heating circuit and they will help us cope with those cold days.
Here you have the best selection of oil radiators this year
We have made the best selection for 2022 of oil radiators to help you in your choice.
If before buying you need help to know what aspects you should look at when choosing the most suitable air purifier for your needs, take a look at our buying guide:
What advantages does an oil radiator have over air heaters?
An oil radiator transfers heat to the air around it by convection without drying out the air like air heaters.
Air heating systems tend to dry out the environment, producing dry mucous membranes such as eyes and throat, producing a dry cough due to itching and discomfort in the eyes.
The use of air heating should be accompanied by humidifiers to counteract the dryness produced.
How does an oil cooler work?
An oil radiator, as its name suggests, works thanks to heating the oil that is inside.
The oil gives a certain durability to the heat taken by this transfer thanks to resistances that are heated electrically.
Most oil radiators have two wheels to control their operation.
One of them controls the power with which the resistors that heat the oil are fed, this tells us how quickly the oil contained in the radiator will heat up.
The other knob is the thermostat and indicates from which temperature the current supplied to the resistances that heat the oil will stop.
When the temperature of the room falls below a certain level, the oil heating will be activated again by means of the resistors.
The hot oil inside the radiator is transferred to the air through a heat transfer process known as convection.
When the heat sensor is located, which determines when the resistance that heats the oil should be turned on or off, in the radiator itself, it is not very precise in terms of the exact temperature at which the change occurs, so normally the thermostat knob it does not indicate the degrees to which this change should be made.
How to select an oil cooler?
Here we detail what characteristics you should look for when choosing an oil radiator:
|Maximum power||This indicates the maximum power with which the oil will be heated and that determines both the speed with which it will reach the desired temperature and the electricity consumption during the time it is heating.|
|Consumption||Consumption is not only linked to the maximum power but also to the number of elements to transfer heat to the environment, the size of the room to be heated and the position of the thermostat.|
|Power levels||Usually there are 3 plus the standing position and it will determine the different speeds to reach the desired temperature. Sometimes we may be interested in using low powers even though it heats up more slowly because perhaps we have little power in the house and we want to avoid the differential jumping if we are using other appliances at the same time.|
|Number of elements||They are the metal sheets or elements that the radiator is made of and will make it longer or shorter depending on the number of them. The more elements, the more surface contact with the air and the greater the speed with which the temperature is transferred to the environment and heat the room. The bigger the room to heat, the more elements it should have.|
|Cable length||The length of the cable will determine the freedom to position the radiator where it suits us best without using extension cords. A cables between 1m and 2m are recommended.|
|Anti rollover||Normally this translates into greater distance between wheels, making the support surface wider and improving its stability in the event of shocks or pushes.|
|Overload protection||It is important that you have a protection system to avoid overloads in the electrical network and thus avoid possible fires.|
You already have everything to choose your radiator from the best selection of oil radiators that we have presented for this 2022.
Have a nice shopping 😀!
