Question about Soleus HGW-203 Micathermic Infra-Red Baseboard Heater
Please would you advise.
I have a living room of 40 sq mts with underfloor heating. The maximum teperature acheivable is 21 c. I need an additional minimum 2c for this room to feel comfortable. There is a lot of window space so I beleive this is the reason for low heat. I would like the best portable electric solution.I was thinking convector/micathermic k/w? Please would you help. Thank you, Steve Dew.
A bit late for you probably Steve, but other browsers might be interested...
Micathermics are faster to warm up the room than other resistive heaters, but otherwise they're no more efficient - so it depends whether you feel that the fast warm up is worth the extra money that the micathermic would cost.
If your ceiling is well insulated (including over the wall plates at the top of the internal walls) then the large windows are very likely the reason that your underfloor heating can't get the heat high enough. Have you considered double glazing? 3M have a very cheap, disposable window insulation kit that you could put on for a cold season to see if it's worth putting in some more permanent double glazing (and in fact that kit will probably last 2 or 3 cold seasons if you just leave it up).
The heater power (kW) required to get that extra 2 degC depends on how well the room is insulated. Your best bet would be to find out how much kW your underfloor heating is putting out and how much degC it is warming up the room, then keep the same proportions to work out how much extra kW you need.
