HOW OUR 21ST CENTURY SOLID STATE RADIATORS ARE BETTER

HOW OUR 21ST CENTURY SOLID STATE RADIATORS ARE BETTER

Powerdown Energy Management

Intelligent electronics reduce the energy usage to the minimum required for your comfort. The heater and room thermostat work together using a combination of methods including chrono-proportional control to reduce the power input smoothly from 100% to 0%.

Direct Acting Heating Elements

The heating elements are fully embedded in the bricks to reduce energy waste and maximise lifetime. It ensures super fast, highly efficient heat transfer directly to the solid core and reduces the risk of oxidisation (rust). Non embedded elements heat air before the core and are more likely to fail.

High Performance Heating Tablets

The unique solid core has been designed to maximise warmth. With high levels of aluminium oxide the tablets retain heat for long periods of time, which increases levels of radiant heat. Radiant heat works like the sun and keeps you warm at a lower air temperature.

Natural Air Convection System

Precision engineered flutes are shaped to promote quick room heat up naturally. The flutes are 25.2mm deep and shaped to create a vortex as the air rises. This helps the room heat quickly without the cost or stuffiness of fan assistance.

Why Sunflow Is Better Than...

Learn more About the Electric Alternatives

Night storage heaters 

Night storage heaters, once popular in the 70s, are losing favour due to their inability to adjust heat output to individual needs. 

They rely on thermal bricks that absorb cheap overnight electricity and release heat gradually throughout the day. This leads to uncomfortably warm mornings and chilly evenings. Additionally, using electricity during the day can result in higher costs compared to alternatives like Sunflow.

Uncomfortably warm mornings and chilly evenings

❌ Can’t be easily controlled, resulting in wasted energy

Inability to adjust heat output to suit individual needs

Daytime electricity usage can lead to higher costs

✅  Alternative solutions like Sunflow offer up to 40% savings on electricity bills and give you greater comfort

Non-Solid-State Radiators 

Non-solid-state radiators, like convection heaters or electric baseboard heaters, come with their own considerations.

They can be inefficient and prone to heat loss through drafts. These heaters have slower heating response times and may distribute heat unevenly within a room. Limited control options and basic thermostats restrict the customisation of heating settings. 

Inefficient with potential heat loss through drafts

Slow heat up time

Uneven heat distribution within the room

❌ Limited control options for getting your heating programme correct

✅  Choose Sunflow for a heating system that combines performance, reliability, and cost savings.

Infrared heaters

Infrared heating works by heating objects directly, and can be hindered by obstacles. It may not provide residual warmth once turned off.

The localised warmth may not be suitable for those who prefer consistent and evenly distributed heat throughout the room.

While infrared heating offers benefits like targeted heating and energy efficiency, it’s important to evaluate factors such as obstacles, installation costs, and personal heating preferences before deciding on this method.

❌ Heats objects directly, not the air, which can be hindered by obstacles

❌ Does not provide residual warmth once turned off

❌ Localised warmth may not suit every room/individual

✅  Sunflow heaters offer a more balanced and comfortable heating experience, without the limitations and potential hindrances of localised warmth caused by obstacles.
