To determine the number of watts is you can assume the floor area of the room to be heated. The table below serves as an indication. In practice, the heat demand is very dependent on the situation. With little insulation you should use the lowest m² value. For frost protection only, use the highest m² value. Tip: if in doubt, use a little more power (this does not mean more energy consumption, but does mean faster heating).

 2...7 m² = 400 Watt
  3...10 m² = 600 Watt
  9...12 m² = 800 Watt
12...16 m² = 1000 Watt
14...20 m² = 1250 Watt
18...25 m² = 1500 Watt
22...32 m² = 2000 Watt
24...40 m² = 2500 Watt


Smart control saves 15% on energy costs

Modern Heating Panels are equipped with an electronic control, which works with a temperature sensor on the underside of the unit. They have a special mode for frost-free-keeping, which is useful for chalets and summer cottages during your absence. An electronic temperature control is more reliable and accurate (less energy consumption) than the mechanical thermostat of conventional convectors.

Very easy to install

An electric wall panel is very easy to install: screw on hanging bracket, hang heater and connect mains power. A flue is not required and, in addition, the panel takes up very little space.

Convection vs. radiant heat

An electric convector uses convection for most of its heating, and a radiant panel (electric radiator) uses mainly electromagnetic waves to radiate its heat. Radiant heat can be compared to the sun and radiates bodies and objects to warm the room. Radiant heat is a form of direct heating. Convection is an indirect form of heating and will heat a room by warming the air.

Both forms of heating have advantages and disadvantages. With convection heating, the room itself will reach temperature faster. In addition, heat will be more evenly distributed, meaning there will be fewer temperature variations in the room. With radiant heat, the wind chill is higher and you can feel a pleasant temperature faster due to the direct form of heating. In addition, it is considered healthier and more pleasant, including reducing dust movement in a room.


In general, convection heat is more often used as supplemental heating and frost protection in rooms. Radiant heat is widely used in areas where heat is needed irregularly and people need to feel warm quickly. In addition, radiant heat is suitable for heating areas in a larger open space.  In principle, both applications are also suitable as main heating.
