Oil heaters work by heating oil-filled channels (watch the video below to learn more). When powered on, the oil heats up and stays hot for a long time, even after turning off. It’s kind of like the way a frying pan retains its heat for several minutes after you take it off the stove. This makes them slow to react to changes in temperature settings and means that they can provide steady output over time.
If you’re considering a new heater oil for your home, an oil-filled radiator might be the best choice for your needs. Heater oil is more efficient than an electric heater and uses less electricity to produce heat.
This can save a homeowner money over time because it costs less to run. Oil heaters cost more to purchase than electric heaters, but they are also safer and better able to disperse warmth throughout a room or office space.
Those interested in environmentally friendly choices should note that while oil heaters are more efficient than other heating systems, they do require electricity to operate and thus are not “green” when compared with other options. For more details, contact home!
