Fan convectors take on the appearance of radiators

Smith's Environmental Products, space heating, fan convector

Smith’s Environmental Products’ Eco-Powerad combines the aesthetics of a radiator with fan-convector technology to deliver higher outputs than a radiator of comparable size. There are four models with outputs from 500 W to 2 kW with a flow temperature of 50°C. The built-in fans have a power consumption from 15 W for the smallest model to 36 W for the largest. They can operate effectively with a system water temperature as low as 40°C from, say, a heat pump.

The water content of these units is only 5% that of a conventional radiator, and they have a 7.5% better SAP rating.
