Electric heating rod with thermostat
During a transitional period or unexpected cool down in the summer months when the boiler is not running and you need warmth while in the bathroom, you can quickly and easily help yourself with the help of an electric heating coil. By connecting it to a ladder radiator, you can provide electric heating and enjoy a pleasant warmth that is sure to delight you when you get out of the bath or shower.
Solution not just for the cold bathroom
The advantage of the electric heating rod is the ability to plug it into the heater without the need to feed heating pipes from the boiler. In doing so, the design of the heating element ensures maximum heat efficiency between the radiator itself and the environment.
The electric heating rod is inserted directly into the ladder radiator by means of a reduction. With the help of a special T-piece, the electric coil and conventional heating water are combined in it. The electric coil can be supplemented with a plug-in time thermostat, so that you can adjust the temperature and regulate the heating time. When the selected temperature is reached, the thermostat automatically switches off.
The electric heating rod plugs into a conventional 230 volt socket and mounts into the ladder via a half-inch thread. In addition to the thermostat, there is also a rotary dial on the heating rod which is used to adjust the temperature of the heating water. At the same time, there is a red diode around the perimeter of the rod to indicate that the heating rod is in operation. If you've just discovered that you could do with a heating rod for more than just temporary periods, but you're limited by the distance between the socket and the radiator, we'll reassure you. The maximum length of the heating rod cable is up to 1.5 metres when stretched.
Electric heating rods are available in several power versions: from 150 to 1200 W. To help you get your bearings, a value of 600 W will give you a hint, which is fully sufficient for normal use.
Favorite named heating rod 600 W
The most popular type of electric heating rod is just a 34 cm long rod, with the aforementioned 600 W. It is designed for ladder radiators and thus meets the requirements of ordinary households. When connecting the rod to a ladder radiator, make sure that the radiator is filled with water or antifreeze up to its top edge. However, we do not recommend connecting the electric heating rod from the top of the radiator. Instead, the rod should always be connected to the bottom of the heater.
When connecting the heating rod to the radiator, we also look at the degree of protection provided by the cover. This is expressed by the so-called IP code (from the English name international protection). This is the resistance of the electrical appliance to the ingress of foreign bodies or liquids. The IP code consists of 2 digits: the first indicates the protection against dangerous contact and against the ingress of foreign objects, the second indicates the degree of protection against the ingress of water. The maximum possible degree of protection is IP68. In the case of an electric heating rod, the protection level is IP 65.
The 600 W electric heating rod is available in white or chrome. An installation tool is included with it for safe installation.
The advantage of electric heating rods is the ability to heat the electric body in winter with water from the boiler and in summer with this rod. In addition to high efficiency and simple, quick installation, all types of heating rods are also available in stock. So, if you want to ensure a warm feeling in the transitional period or treat yourself to an alternative in the event of an unexpected cold snap, an electric heating rod is the solution to your requirements.
