Proper use of space heaters makes the ambient temperature really comfortable. When it is warm on a frosty evening, it is much more pleasant to return home after a hard day. In order that radiators and convectors do not cause any inconvenience, you should know the simple rules for their installation and operation.
Various general rules for safety room heating apply to all types of these devices, for example:
- Read the instructions carefully before starting work.
- Do not install the devices too close to the socket from which they are to be powered.
- Do not cover the device with clothing, napkins or other cloths.
- Clean the dust regularly.
In addition, there are separate recommendations for the best space heaters for each type.
Safe use of convectors
Most of the heating options of this type in the kit have special legs to stabilize the construction. To install the convector on the wall, the mounting on brackets should best be entrusted to experts. In specialized locations where careful monitoring is carried out, find a contractor will be an easy task.
It is important to ensure that there are no flammable objects within half a meter of this type of space heater. To clean the convector, you need to disconnect it from the network and wait for it to cool down completely. Wipe it off with a damp cloth. It is better not to use hard brushes and detergents with abrasives.
How can the oil heater be operated correctly?
The main reason for buying oil space heaters is the low power consumption, the ability to quickly heat even large spaces, and the stylish design. So that the heater works for a long time without interruptions and malfunctions, it is worth installing it on a flat surface. This is explained by the fact that there is liquid oil in the device and even a small angle of inclination leads to overheating and breakage. To ensure stability, the legs that come with the purchase can.
Another important factor that determines the quality of work of space heaters is the distance to the walls (at least 20 centimeters) and the free space above the device. If you put it under the table, there will be problems with air circulation.
Installation and operation of an infrared heater
If a person wants to hang the infrared room heaters on the ceiling, you should check whether the configuration contains special brackets. If they could not be found, it is worth buying the fasteners separately. When installing, it is most important to consider the distance to the ceiling – at least 5 centimeters. The material from which the blanket is made has to withstand high temperatures and weight. The distance to the ceiling is important when installing the device on the wall. Do not set it too high, the minimum distance is 50-70 centimeters. It is best to let the experts do the job and find a contractor to do the job.
The care of the infrared heater begins before the first start. Before you start working, you need to wipe it off with an alcohol solution. So there will be no yellow dust spots and there will be no unpleasant smell. Then you only have to clean the device in time and switch off the power.
Space heating with heating panels
Probably the most important requirement that depends on the proper operation of these devices is to entrust the installation to professionals. The search for a contractor is possible using special resources.
For anchor connections, the plate is attached to the wall (while the stone plate closes the heating elements) and then connected to the water supply system. A design plus of the heating options is the possibility to mount them in vertical and horizontal positions.
So that the heating works for a long time without interruption, you only have to set the temperature on the thermostat and must not cover the stone slab with anything. You can clean the heating panels with a soft cloth dampened with a washing solution. It is particularly worth taking into account the malfunction of the device. If the device warms up poorly or you notice damage, you should immediately disconnect it from the heating system and contact customer service.
Despite the fact that it is impossible to work out common problems and find solutions for all types of space heaters, something remains unchanged for every device of this type. If you notice a malfunction in the convector, oil cooler, or other heater, contact the Warranty Service Center first. Qualified specialists help to eliminate the problems that have occurred without damaging the device itself.
