Four simple tips for correct heater positioning

Where you place your heaters has a lot of influence on how efficiently they heat the room. So if you bear in mind a couple of minor points, you can save electricity, money and the environment through efficient heating.

1. Under a window

A well-known way to position heaters is under windows. If you do not have the space for panel heaters, you can also choose wall strip panel heaters, which are lower and longer versions. By placing heaters under the windows, you heat up cold air descending from the window glass, and avoid cold draughts along the floor.

2. Do not cover heaters with furniture

If you put furniture in front of a heater, the circulation of heat around the room will be obstructed. Plan carefully where furniture should stand when placing radiators to ensure good distribution of heat.

3. Several small heaters give more even heating than a heater with high watt effect

If you have a very big room, it’s worth using several sources of heat. If you choose several small heaters, the heat is spread to different parts of the room, avoiding having to turn up a single heater too high.

4. Mounting under a window

Panel heaters should generally be mounted minimum 10 cm from the floor and have 10 cm clear space in front to other objects, such as a sofa. You will find a template and mounting guide in the lid of the packaging with clear instructions on how to mount the heater on a wall.
