heating systems

Using the latest materials and technology Neater Heaters heating systems are manufactured in Europe to the highest standards and come with a five year warranty (ivigo three years). Testing has shown that the reduced running costs of our heating systems over their “competition” can produce considerable annual savings for the customer. Why is this?

Our heating systems use Convection principals and are designed so that the electricity you put into the heater is converted to heat as cheaply as possible. Quite simply: When you turn on the heater the element warms up rapidly and heats the air around it, this air rises and draws more cold air into the heater. Because the element is extremely efficient and is designed to have a huge surface area a large quantity of air is heated very quickly. If your room has the correct sized heater it will take about twenty minutes to warm up from cold, after which the heater eases off and works at about two thirds capacity, (depending on various external influences).

most efficient electric heaters

The Norwegian based design and engineering make Neater Heater systems among the most efficient electric heaters for our Spanish climate. Convector heaters warm the air around you and provide a pleasant ambient heat for your home. Neater Heaters do it better, and cheaper, than the “Competition”.

Whether you are choosing from the stylish Beha wi-fi / Bluetooth or NEO standard / wi-fi ranges, or the more utilitarian ivigo or Adax Standard ranges, you can be confident that you will have an efficient cost-effective heater with safety and quality assured. For modern interiors, or where a splash of colour may be desired, the slim and elegant design of the Adax Neo fits right in. The Neo is both smart and clever, with a digital display and an in-built day and night temperature reduction, it can provide a further 25% reduction in running costs.

All our heating systems are available as normal Panel Heaters or low-profile skirting board heaters. They can also all be supplied with feet (additional cost) to provide a stand-alone option (ivigo and Adax VP have feet included in the box at no extra cost).

We also offer a few solutions to some of life’s chilly problems. Whether you need our “Welly warmer” hot air blower (designed to warm ski boots, or dry out soaking football boots overnight), or a warm air blowing footrest for office workers in cold offices, factories, or workshops. Neater Heater may have just the right Neat solution for you.

Convector Heaters versus Infrared

Most customers come to Neater Heater having already made a decision to use electric heating. They are then faced with a bewildering choice of heating options. Richard and Tony from Neater Heater have explained, at length, why their convector heaters are the best in their category. However, one of the questions they are constantly asked is “What is the difference between convector heating and Infrared heating?”

There are three ways that heat energy is distributed: Conduction; Convection; and Radiation.

Conduction. If you touch the metal handle of a metal saucepan you will burn your hand, because the metal has conducted the heat efficiently. If the handle was wooden, you would not burn your hand as wood is a bad conductor of heat, and absorbs the energy into itself.

Convection. Hot air rises. This is known as convection. As a Neater Heater element warms up, it heats the air around it. Because the element is designed to have a huge surface area it does this very quickly and efficiently. As the hot air rises out of the top of the heater it is replaced by cold air that is drawn into the bottom of the heater. This cold air, in turn, is rapidly heated and rises. The warm air now rises to the ceiling and spreads out until it starts filling the room, from the top, with warm air. After about twenty minutes (with the right sized heater) the air in the room is warm and the thermostat starts to reduce consumption.

Radiation. A source of radiated heat will warm objects in a direct line of sight with it for a certain distance. Infrared Heaters and Kebab cookers does this very well, they both heat objects facing them and nothing else; the air remains cold. This is why the kebab has to rotate. Also, if you put another object between you and the radiation heat source, you are now in the shadow, and are no longer being heated. Infrared is a very effective heating choice in certain, specific, situations, but has a huge “Achilles Heel” if being used for general heating.

designed to heat up the air

The advantage of infrared would be if you had a huge area to heat like a large open-plan- living room, or a Naya. Here you would not choose a convector heater, but you could use an infrared heater to warm objects (you) in a specific part of the room; maybe by the television. However, the minute you move away from this small area you would start feeling cold again as you are no longer within its range.

If you were sat at a dining table in winter, your bodies would be warm, but your legs and feet, in the shadow caused by the table, could be like lumps of ice. A convector heater, however, would warm all the air in the room, including that occupying the space under the table.

Infrared sales people state that their heaters warm objects which, in turn, radiate heat back into the room. This might work in a world of insulated properties, but in Spain the walls will just lose the heat to the outside due to lack of insulation, and wooden furniture will absorb the heat as demonstrated by the fact that we use wooden handles on saucepans.

Neater Heaters are designed to heat up the air in a non-complicated way. It also helps that they look good as well.

Some Customers’ questions explained.

Having set up Neater Heater many years ago, Richard and Tony have frequently encountered the same questions from customers trying to decide which heater option is better for them.

Some of these questions have been answered by “Internet Experts” on forums where the answers are as baffling as some of the questions.

Why choose Electric heating over traditional Gas, or Oil, powered central heating systems?

Mainly Installation costs. Although the perception is that running costs of Gas and Oil systems are probably cheaper (although that is disputable) a full Neater Heater central heating system can be installed in most small villas for about €1,000 – the price of a boiler.

Not only that, but Neater Heaters are movable because they are lightweight. Water-filled Radiators are not.

Are Neater Heaters Economical to run?

Compared to most of the competition, yes they are. But more importantly they are efficient which makes them cost-effective, and that is more important. A number of years ago I tried to heat my son’s bedroom with a 900 Watt “Eco Heater” which barely made a difference at all. I replaced that with a 1000 watt Neater Heater, which cost a bit more, and the difference was astounding. Even with the “Eco Heater” my son was unable to concentrate on his homework, even with his outdoor clothes on, and ended up doing it in the living room. The Neater Heater, however, warmed his room effectively allowing him to study in a teeshirt.

Not only that, but the Neater Heater was only running at 3/4 capacity of about 750 Watts.
In other words, The Neater heater cost me less to keep him warm than the “Eco Heater” cost to keep him cold.

There is a guy on an Internet Forum who says that if you put a kilowatt of electricity into any heater you can only get a kilowatt out and all electric heaters are the same!

We have heard this nonsense on all the Internet Forums we have bothered to look into. In my spare bedroom I have two pieces of electrical apparatus. They both use metal electric elements to convert electricity to heat energy. One of them uses 2,300 kwh and if you left it on for five hours would probably not raise the room temperature by more than a degree, but it can be used to put lovely creases in shirts.

The other one is a Neater Heater which uses about 750kwh, and if you left it on for 20 minutes would raise the room temperature by 10 degrees. Unfortunately, it is rubbish at ironing shirts.Neater Heaters are convector heaters designed by engineers to gently heat up the air in your room as fast and effectively as possible.

Simple Heat Calculations

Our calculations for Spain

Measure the area of the room to be heated in m2.

Allow 100 watts per m2 for areas needing to be warm, e.g. Living rooms and Bathrooms.

Allow 75-100 watts per m2 for areas such as bedrooms which you may not require to have the same level of heating.
(add extra to rooms with higher than normal ceilings,
remember some rooms are colder than others particularly north facing rooms)

In Spain, Portugal and some of France homes have very poor insulation. This severely compromises the performance of all heating systems.

The graph is produced by Adax for Norway, please select poor insulation when considering the size of your heater.

We have found though that applying the following simple rule above is the best option in these countries.

Allow 1kW to heat every 10sqm.

About Beha WI-FI

WI-FI convector heaters come in a variety of sizes and are intended for full central heating of the home. They are fitted with an integrated WiFi control unit as standard, allowing you to have a full remote control over your heating via the Beha downloadable App. A Bluetooth capability has been made ready for future applications. Despite these technical advances, Beha heaters are still simple to install and just as user friendly as they have always been.

The heaters are approved and certified by NEMKO according to international CCa specifications EN 60335 and carry the CE mark, thus complying with European safety standards and ErP requirements. Complying with Protection Class IP24 makes them suitable for use in bathrooms.

All BEHA Smart Heaters can be used with Wi-Fi app control or manually by setting the required room temperature using the thermostat wheel. The app control allows you to set the temperature of the heaters in each room independently for each hour of the day and each day of the week. When the heaters are programmed by the app each heater will follow the set temperature until it is re-programmed in the app.

The programme will not be influenced by power failure or lost internet connection. If the heater is manually operated it will return to the manually set temperature when the power comes back on.
The heater in a room can be switched on and off by using the app. The same can be done with the frost guard function and the child safety lock.

An important safety feature of the heater is the thermal cut out switch, this disconnects the power to the heater if an object accidentally falls onto the heater body. When the covering object is removed the cut out will reset automatically once the heater reaches a safe operating temperature.

Burning dust and associated discolouring is a problem with many convector heaters. Our convector heaters reduce this problem due to the low temperature on the heating element.

This is particularly beneficial for those with asthma and allergies.

About Beha Bluetooth

BEHA Bluetooth convector heaters come in a variety of sizes and are intended for full central heating of the home. They are fitted with an integrated Bluetooth control unit as standard, allowing you to set up timer settings plus the required temperature via the Beha downloadable App. Despite these technical advances, Beha heaters are still simple to install and just as user friendly as they have always been and can be used manually with a thermostat wheel and on / off button on top of the heater as per the original Beha design without using the bluetooth function.

The heaters are approved and certified by NEMKO according to international CCa specifications EN 60335 and carry the CE mark, thus complying with European safety standards and ErP requirements. Complying with Protection Class IP24 makes them suitable for use in bathrooms.

All BEHA Bluetooth heaters do not require or use WI-FI. These can be used with Bluetooth app control or manually by setting the required room temperature using the thermostat wheel. The app control allows you to set the temperature and timers settings of the heaters in each room independently for each hour of the day. When the heaters are programmed by the app each heater will follow the set temperature until it is re-programmed in the app. The app will not control the changing of temperature when the heater is in timer mode. To do this use the thermostat wheel on the heater. This overrides the timer settings.

The programme will not be influenced by power failure or lost bluetooth connection. If the heater is manually operated it will return to the manually set temperature when the power comes back on.

Beha Bluetooth & BEHA WI-FI

The heating elements have aluminium fins with perforations and a large surface, distributing the heat in an effective way. This is why the average temperature of the element, in the operating phase, is one of lowest on the market. The critical temperature for dust-burning is 225ºC. In a Beha convector heater this temperature will occur only for a short period when the heater is switched on in a cold room. After a short while the element temperature will stabilize at 90ºC. Therefore the front panel’s surface-temperature will be under the prescribed 80ºC. The elements are fitted in special holders that eliminate unwanted noise from the heater. In addition, the Beha heater has galvanized back plate which reduces the temperature against the wall. The Beha convector heaters are approved by Nemko with an international CB test certificate, which makes them suitable for sale in Europe and most countries of the world.

BEHA heaters have cold draft function. When a window is opened next to the heater in a room where the room temperature is above 15˚C the heater will change between set temperature and frost guard (5˚C). This function will be active for maximum 15 minutes. All BEHA heaters have built-in frost guard function. If using the manual thermostat our convector heaters are equipped with a frost guard function. That means if the thermostat wheel is turned to the snow crystal symbol it will maintain the room at 5ºC room temperature.

Another feature of the heater is the heat outlet on the front panel, this guides the warm air away from the wall. The combination of the low temperature on the heating element and the design and location of its openings reduces the possibility for dust assembling and consequential discolouration.
The heaters have a child-proof cover on the operating panel.
The maximum surface temperature on the front panel is 80°c at 20°c room temperature. Beha convector heaters are equipped with a sensitive electronic thermostat that has an accuracy of 0.2ºC at 20ºC. This provides a constant temperature in the room.
Easy cleaning. The heater tilts forward on the fixing bracket for ease of cleaning behind.
Beha convector heaters are double insulated. This makes earthing of the heaters unnecessary and thus approved in accordance with IEC Protection Class II. The heater can be installed in a variety of rooms, including bathrooms, kitchens and utility rooms etc. The heaters are approved by all major approval regulators and have protection class IPx4
Beha convector heaters take up less space. The convector heaters do not need much space. They can be fitted 10 cm from the floor and only require 10 cm above the heater. They can also be placed in corners and only require 2 cm at each end

The History of Beha

Beha is one of the oldest and most traditional electrical companies in Norway, still in operation under the same family ownership. The product groups produced by the company today are exactly the same as those produced by the company at the time of its founding way back in 1917 – electric cookers and heaters.

This expertise, developed over many years, and the fact that Beha has always been at the leading edge of developing new technology and improved production methods creates a sound basis for the company’s excellent reputation in the market. In Porsgrunn, about 150 kilometres south of the capital Oslo.

Beha has an advanced production site of 12.000 square metres. This site includes a separate department for thin plate work, an enamelling plant and an assembly department.

The site also includes the main warehouse from where goods are dispatched to destinations both in Norway and abroad. Beha is an entirely Norwegian company which is privately owned, something we are very proud of.

Beha operates within two strictly defined product groups. The first product group includes all kinds of cooking appliances (gas/electric) and cooker hoods.
The second product group is a large variety of electrical heaters.

The Exciting Adax Neo

The Neo is in a class of its own, not only can it be used as a simple on/off heater, its digital controls allow it to be programmed. In common with all Adax heaters, the vents are situated at the top. However, the modern design gives the Neo a contemporary look. The panel is painted to a very high standard and comes in a variety of different colours including white, silver, black, and red. The Neo’s digital control allows the homeowner a greater flexibility in both comfort and economy.

For example, you want to heat your bedroom to 22°C to prepare for bed, but you do not want to sleep in a room that warm. With the Neo, you have the choice of either turning off the heater every night, or creating a simple programme to reduce the heater’s output at the same time every night for a set number of hours. This will achieve the lower temperature you desire during the night, and when the programme finishes, the heater will revert to your chosen room temperature of 22°C.

All NEO Heaters can be fitted with feet which gives you a choice of free-standing or wall mounted.

NEO recommended calculations In Norway

The Neo is the latest model in the very successful, tried and tested line of Adax Convector Heaters. However, to fully appreciate what these heaters have to offer, an understanding of the simple terminology associated with the digital thermostat is necessary.

The Comfort Temperature is the temperature you set your heater to in order to achieve your desired room temperature. For example: 22°C.

The Cutback Temperature is the pre-set temperature you want the heater to reduce to for a period of time. For example: When you are at work you may select a cutback temperature of 5°C (In effect turning the heater off while you are out). However, at night time you may choose a cutback temperature of 12°C while you are asleep.

Controls

There are 5 buttons on the side of the heater.

OK

Confirmation of selection.

+

Increase the value in the digital display whether displaying temp, time, or day.

-

Decrease the value in the digital display.

>

Selection button meaning “more”.

<

Selection button meaning “less”.

NB. When turned on for the first time after purchase, you must select one of three modes: Home; Office; or Cabin (Norwegian Log Cabin) depending on where you intend to put the heater. Depending on which mode you select, some of the Function commands will vary. The default option is Home. Home.

If you just want to use it as a manually controlled heater, without programming it, just press the OK button while turning it on. Release the “OK”, then just press the + or accordingly.

Calibration: If the heater display temperature and the room temperature do not correspond, then the heater may need calibrating. This is easy to do. All NEO heaters are able to be calibrated.

Each Neo Heater comes with an instruction book, with pictures, that explain these functions.

Selecting Heater Size

Convector heaters warm all the air in a space/room. It is therefore very important to choose the correct size heaters for the rooms you require heating. We will assume that your ceilings are normal height (about 2.8 Metres)

Adax, Beha and ivigo all produce size charts, but we find the following rule-of-thumb to work well for non-insulated Spanish houses.
In a living room you will need 100 watts per m²: 1,000 watts (1kw) per 10m².
In a bedroom you probably only need 75 watts per m²: 750 watts per 10m².

You need to find out the area in square metres of your room. For my example I am going to make the dimensions 7 metres by 3 metres, which is 21m². For ease of calculation let’s call it 20m². This means that if it is a living area you will need 2kw to heat it. If it is a bedroom; 1.5kw will probably be sufficient.

Factors

You then have to consider the following factors.

Other Factors you should consider

Having taken all the above into consideration,

if you are undecided between two sizes, you should usually pick the larger option. The difference in purchase price is minimal, and…….

Adax and NEO recommended calculations In Norway

The heat requirement depends on factors such as the exterior temperature, room heat insulation, door open / close cycles. The values stated on the above table are for average conditions therefore when calculating the heater power these factors should be taken into consideration.

Beha Heater

(In Spain, Portugal and some of France homes have very poor insulation. This severely compromises the performance of all heating systems. All of the calculator and graphs above are produced by Beha and adax for Norway and vigo for Turkey. please select poor insulation when considering the size of your heater.
We have found though that applying the following simple rule, Allowing 1kW to heat every 10sqm is the best option in these countries.)

Consumption

The approximate running cost are 23 cents ( including iva ) per kilowatt hour , based on Iberdrola standard tariff. (rates vary, please check your individual tariff on your electricity bill in your area)

This means that for every 1 kw used continuously for one hour it will cost you 23 cents.
The total cost for a 1kw heater running continuously for 24 hours would therefore be € 5.52.
(These figures are greatly reduced with the thermostat in operation)

You can work out roughly how much your heating would be using our heaters the following way.
Work out the square meterage of the room/rooms you want to heat. The chart will show you the size of radiator in Watts that would be needed to effectively heat that room.
Each 100 watts will cost you 0.023 cents including iva per hour on the standard tariff (Iberdrolla´s figures, the correct term is 23 cents /kilowatt hour, it means the same).

The cost is varied by the fact that Adax heaters have thermostats built into them and therefore are not running continuously for one hour as they will be reaching the set temperature and turning off.
The thermostat will also regulate according to differing factors like the outdoor temperature and how many open doors or windows you have in the area where the heaters are fitted.

A heater with a greater wattage does not use more energy, and does not cost more to run. The heater’s element will be working less frequently, which also gives a lower surface temperature.
