The Quickest Way to be Comfortably Warm...
Many ways have been devised of heating rooms or buildings as effectively and economically as possible. Now, as never before, has it been so simple to enjoy sumptuous warmth everywhere. Because electricity can be converted into heat with hardly any losses, it provides a truly cost-effective solution. Moreover, electric heaters do not produce any emissions where they are being used, and so therefore do not need flues.
Point of use heating.
Electric direct-acting heating systems offer lots of benefits and pleasant comfortable temperatures. In terms of economy too they are second to none. Power can be converted into warmth with almost no efficiency losses. With an efficiency of 100% the warmth is generated exactly where you need it. Direct warmth avoids losses through long distribution channels. Fuel doesn't have to be paid for in advance and the costs for maintenance and cleaning are extremely low - a power socket is all it takes.
Enormous savings throughout.
Specifications for room heaters vary a great deal. STIEBEL ELTRON offers you different heating systems - each of which is designed to do justice to the particular application.
