I grew up in an ancient farm lake house that was heated by a boiler plus ancient cast iron radiators. I have fond memories of my childhood, so when I know of those ancient radiators that I sat dried my mittens on, it brings back a real sense of nostalgia. So I was shocked 1 morning to see a new electric radiator in a friend’s office. It was honestly quite attractive. I kind of did a double-take as I reconciled what I had categorized as a thing of the past with what I was looking at in the present. Once I looked up new radiators on the Internet, I found several choices, looks, plus styles that have been developed. One site contrasted new radiators, which convert electricity into heat, with the ancient models that were water-based, although some models still use a liquid coolant. The amount of heat generated by an electric radiator is controlled by a control component that’s installed within the radiator itself. There are numerous types of radiators this week: fan heaters, convection radiators, infrared radiators, plus oil-based electric radiators. Fan heating systems consist of the fan, which emits a constant air flow, plus the furnace itself. The built-in control component shuts off the fan off once the predetermined temperature is reached. Convection radiators do not burn oxygen nor dry out the air, plus the continuous movement of sizzling air in the room makes for a very cozy environment. Infrared radiators use electromagnetic waves of a certain frequency, which honestly produce heat. And then there are oil-based radiators, which are very portable plus quiet, although getting very warm themselves, quite honestly, when I do get ready to purchase a radiator, I’ll honestly get the 1 that’s the prettiest!
