WHAT SIZE SPACE HEATER DO I NEED FOR MY ROOM?

Space heaters allow you to add targeted warmth directly where you need it. Simply find your ideal heat level on the thermostat and enjoy immediate warmth. Portable heaters are ideal for rooms with inadequate heating or spaces where central heat can’t be installed. Here at Scion Supply we offer a broad range of heating solutions to suit every space and pocket.

Personal Space: Consider a personal heater like the Airmaster UFH2TN for under a desk or in an office cubicle. They heat small spaces quickly but shouldn't be used in large rooms. Make it even more personal with the Dimplex DDF250 Desktop Heater which even incorporates a USB port for charging your mobile phone or tablet.

Bedrooms/Offices: If you're looking to cool a standard bedroom or office, these heaters will do the trick. Have a look at the compact Airmaster CRMINI oil filled radiator which provides an instant flow of heat and is completely silent meaning it won't disturb your sleep during the night. If you're looking for something with a little more punch, the CR2T provides a maximum of 2000w of heat easily controlled via an adjustable room thermostat and a 24-hour timer with 15-minute segments.

Large Rooms/Basements: These heaters are designed to heat entire rooms and large spaces. Find the one that's best for your area; have a look at the the newly released Draper ESH2000E a 2kw space heater or the Faithfull Power Plus Ceramic Fan Heater.

Ceramic heaters like the Faithfull Power Plus Ceramic Fan Heater use positive temperature coefficient (PTC) technology which gives a fast heat up time and, once the pre-set temperature is reached, the power goes on stand-by. It only cuts in again once the temperature drops below what was pre-set, thus saving electricity. Their emissivity rate (the degree at which material can emit electromagnetic waves) is high so the heat tends to last a long time in relation to the time required to reach the desired temperature.

Garages, Workshops, Warehouses: When it comes to the largest areas, you need to look at our industrial space heaters like the Jetforce DSH1750 - a 175,000 BTU (51kw) diesel/kerosene space heater or, if you prefer Propane, the Jetforce PSH125SS Propane Mix Space Heater which provides 125,000 BTU (37kw) of heat.

Space Heater Sizing

It is important to purchase a room heater that’s rated for the approximate square footage or dimensions of your space.

Why Heater Size is Important

An electric space heater that’s too large will consume more energy and lead to higher utility bills. The opposite is also true: buying a space heater that’s too small will simply fail to adequately heat your space.

Space Heater Square Footage Equation

You can determine the right size by using heater wattage output. As a rule of thumb, you'll need roughly 10 watts of heating power for every square foot of floor area in the room.

This means that a 1,500-watt heater can be the primary heat source for an area measuring up to 150 square feet. If it’s used as a supplemental heating source, however, it covers a much larger area.

HOW A GARDEN HEDGE TRIMMER WORKS

Electric-powered hedge trimmers are lightweight, more affordable and quieter than petrol-powered hedge trimmers. While petrol-powered hedge trimmers require fuel to operate, electric- powered hedge trimmers rely on either battery or being plugged into a power supply.

An electric-powered hedge trimmer works by using the electrical current provided by either the mains connection or the battery, to power the motor, which provides the oscillations that the blades need.

Electric motors are less powerful than petrol, but also quieter. The reduced power makes electric trimmers less effective against particularly thick branches – if you regularly need to cut through branches more than around 1/2″ thick, you’d be better off with a petrol-driven hedge trimmer.

One further advantage of electric hedge trimmers is they don’t produce any emissions at the device.

Coronavirus and Customer Service Update

What an extraordinary period of our lives we are all experiencing.Thank you very much to all our customers for your support, patience and understanding whilst we have been re-organising our logistics to ensure we protect the health and well being of our teams. We have experienced an increase in orders, which, coupled with the restrictions on staffing as presented some really difficult challenges over the last few weeks and months.

The health and safety of our team remains paramount and all those involved in processing customer orders will adhere to strict operating guidelines to ensure their safety as they carry out their work.

Whilst we will do everything we can to get your orders to you as soon as possible, but if you do experience a delay, don't panic, give us a call or drop us an email and a helpful, friendly person will have pleasure in assisting you.

Due to the situation, you may find our listings absent from certain on-line platforms. PPE has been particularly hard to come by and we are prioritising the NHS as you will understand.

We are getting used to a changed way of working and are very much still here to help so if you have any queries, pick up the phone and give us a call. Thanks again and stay safe out there!

You can always place an order or send us a message, but largely due to manufacturer and courier closures, we will not be dispatching orders from Christmas Eve, Tuesday 24th December 2019 to Tuesday 7th January 2020.
