Oil Filled Radiators

Oil filled radiators are a low-cost heating solution that can retain heat even when they’re switched off, using less energy, and therefore reducing running costs and bills.

An oil filled radiator uses electricity to heat the oil inside, making it incredibly efficient to run as you’ll need less energy to maintain the temperature of your home, or other areas that don't have central heating.
While it can take a little longer to heat up than other forms of heating, the fluid inside the radiator cools down very slowly and will continue to radiate warmth even when you’ve switched it off.

Here at YESSS Electrical, we have a range of sizes and styles to choose from. Shop our fantastic oil filled radiator heater collection below.

FAQs for Oil-Filled Radiators

What are oil-filled radiators and how do they work?

Oil-filled radiators are a type of electric heating appliance that uses thermal oil as a heat reservoir. The electric heating element heats the oil, which then circulates through the radiator's fins, transferring heat to the surrounding air.

These radiators are known for their energy efficiency, even heat distribution and ability to maintain warmth even after being turned off, keeping rooms at a comfortable temperature for longer.

What are the benefits of using an oil-filled radiator?

Oil filled radiators are a good choice for keeping one room warm, rather than a whole house. Some key benefits of oil-filled radiators include:

• Energy efficiency: They use less electricity compared to other types of heaters, resulting in lower energy bills.

• Even heat distribution: The oil reservoir ensures consistent heat output throughout the room.

• Quiet operation: No fans or moving parts mean minimal noise during operation.

• Low maintenance: Since there are no filters to clean or replace, oil-filled radiators require minimal upkeep.

How do I choose the right oil-filled radiator for my needs?

When selecting an oil-filled radiator, consider factors such as:

• Room size: Choose a radiator with the appropriate power output (measured in watts) to effectively heat your space.

• Portability: Some models come with casters or handles for easy transportation between rooms.

• Thermostat and timer: Adjustable thermostat and timer settings allow for better temperature control and energy efficiency. All of the models sold by YESSS Electrical have at least three heat settings.

Are portable oil-filled radiators safe to use?

Yes, oil-filled heaters are generally considered safe to use. They are designed with safety features such as overheat protection and tip-over switches that automatically shut off the heater if it becomes too hot or is accidentally knocked over.

However, always follow the manufacturer's guidelines and safety precautions, such as keeping the radiator away from flammable materials and not using extension cords.

How do I maintain my oil-filled radiator?

Oil-filled radiators require minimal maintenance. Regularly wipe down the exterior with a damp cloth to remove dust and debris, and inspect the power cord for any signs of wear or damage. There's no need to change the oil, as it's designed to last for the life of the radiator.

What energy-saving features should I look for in an oil-filled radiator?

Some energy-saving features to consider include:

• Adjustable thermostat: Variable heat settings allow you to set the desired temperature, so the radiator only uses energy when needed.

• Timer: Program the radiator to turn on or off at specific times, conserving heat energy when you're not at home.

• Eco mode: Some oil heaters have an eco mode that adjusts power settings and output based on the room's temperature, ensuring optimal energy efficiency.

How long does it take for an oil-filled radiator to heat up?

The time it takes for an oil-filled radiator to heat up depends on factors such as the radiator's power output and the size of the room. Generally, it can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes for the radiator to reach its maximum temperature. However, since oil-filled radiators are known for their ability to retain heat, they continue to provide warmth even after being turned off.

Can I use an oil-filled radiator in a bathroom or damp environment?

It's not recommended to use an oil-filled radiator in a bathroom or damp environment unless it's specifically designed for such use and has the appropriate IP (Ingress Protection) rating. Using a radiator not designed for damp environments could pose a risk of electric shock or damage to the unit.

What is the warranty on your oil-filled radiators?

Our oil-filled radiators come with a manufacturer's warranty that covers defects in materials and workmanship for a specified period. Warranty terms may vary by product, so it's essential to review the specific warranty information provided with your purchase.

How do I determine the appropriate power output for my oil-filled radiator?

A general rule of thumb is to have 100 watts of power per square metre of space. For example, a 1.500-watt oil-filled radiator should be sufficient for a room measuring approximately 15 square metres. However, factors such as insulation, ceiling height and window size can affect heating requirements, so it's always best to consult with a professional if you're unsure.
