5 Of The Best Designer Oil Filled Radiators For Your Home

A designer oil filled radiator or oil-filled heater is a common form of heating in offices, homes and often retail or commercial use. Although the radiator is filled with oil, it is electrically heated and therefore does not directly involve any burning of oil fuel. Instead, the oil is used as a heat reservoir, or buffer, and not as a fuel.

One can argue that it is, all the more eco-friendly than the traditional oil-burning heaters.

Looking at how good a radiator is for the environment is not all you should be looking for when deciding on the best designer oil filled radiator for your needs. Key safety features like a tip over switch, three heat settings, open window detection, adjustable thermostat control and remote control – are just a few of the other features you should be checking for.

On average, an oil heater uses 1500 watts. They are an extremely safe option for heating your home and can be left on overnight, due to the internal pressure of the oil staying constant because of the high boiling point that the oil has in relation to other liquids such as water.
