MICA ELECTRIC HEATER: While oil heaters have their pros, micathermic heaters like the HV220WE far outrank in them in several ways. The mica panels heat up to full capacity in just 1 minute which is far quicker than any oil radiator. They also radiate heat more effectively, are more economic, are safer to use and are lighter in weight. This heater is ideal for medium to large rooms. ADJUSTABLE HEAT SETTINGS - The HV220WE has two programmable heat settings which allow you to adjust the level of heat being expelled: 1kW and 2kW. It also has a thermostat which you can programme to gauge when the room is at your desired temperature. If you want to warm up a room quickly the 2kW high temperature is the best option. However, if it’s not too cold or you aren’t in a rush to warm the space, you could put on 1.0kW and heat more steadily. SAFE TO USE – Surpassing both convector and oil-filled radiators, radiant heaters like the HV220WE are overall more safer to use. The mica panels are naturally insulating which prevents electric shocks and electrical fires from occurring. Additionally, the heating element is covered by a protective mesh which prevents any burning accidents. It also has an over-heat function to prevent the heater from overheating, and will also automatically switch off if it is accidentally tipped over. EASY TO MOVE – This heater is lightweight and has caster wheels which enable you to move it from room to room with ease. There are also integrated handles to make transportation easier should you wish to pull or lift the heater. On the front is a cable winding handle for keeping the cable tidy when the heater is not in use. SPECIFICATIONS – Dimensions: 67x54x25cm / 26.4x21.3x9.8in. Weight: 4.2kg / 9.3lb.
