Dense question of the day :)
I know these things exist because I sat looking at one in the docs waiting
room, but I don't know what they are called. Basically a wall mounted fan
heater that is plumbed in to the CH.
Can anyone enlighten me on a name, or manufactuers, so I can find out where
to get info please?
Ooooh, that sounds expensive, Mysons are circa 150quid at discounted
on_Kickspace_1445.html , sorry can't be bothered 'tiny'ing it . . .
Yes, I have them. Do about 1.5KW on 60C water. Made by Smiths. Look for
fan assisted convector or something on Google. Quite, but not totally
silent. Mine say SMITHS HYDRONIC SFR-7 on the case.
One problem is they obviously heat the room a little even when the fan
is off. The other is they need balancing, and don't come equpped with
balancing valves. We used twin isolation valves that are *just*
accessible when the front casing is removed. They are difficult to
install - we had to chip out the studs a little - and work best when
coupled to a room stat per room - these simply control the fans.
They were the best I could do to avoid dreadful wallspace eating
radiators where underfloor heating was not possible, due to floor void
being less than an inch (exposed oak joists below)
They are only JUST able to heat about 25 sq meters of very well
insulated room per convector. One north room is a bit marginal in the
depths of winter.
On balance they did the job pretty well and I don't mind the slight
whirring. Your mileage may vary.
