Warming up your home or office space during cold periods of the year is very important. To achieve this, you need an appliance – like Elnur storage heaters – that are energy-efficient, stylish and do not lead to random hikes your electric bills.
Electric storage heaters are very handy as they require no maintenance. You also do not need to worry about boiler or pipe issues and there are no breakdowns due to limescale accumulation or any leaks.
Electric heaters convert electricity to heat by air convection via a resistor in the heater.
Electric heaters are one of the safest home appliances to use as there are little or no risks involved with the usage. This is because they always come fitted with safety features to keep homeowners at ease while the heater is in operation.
In this article, we shall be looking at two electric storage heaters manufactured by Elnur.

Types of Electric Heaters
Electric radiators can be categorised into four distinct types.
- Convection radiators
- Fan heaters
- Infrared radiators and,
- Oil-filled radiators.
Convection radiators work by sucking in cool air from the environment down to the lowest layer of the heater and making the air lighter as it rises out back into the atmosphere after it has been heated up.
The process is repeated continuously, ensuring that conducive and clean air is circulated in the room. This process does not dry the air, neither does it create moisture thereby making the air in the room very cosy and comfortable.
Fan heaters, on the other hand, consist of the fan and the heater as its main elements. The fan ensures that warm air is circulated in the room after it must have passed through the heating element to get warmed up. With this type of radiator, the air in the space is maintained at a constant temperature in medium and large spaces and the air is warmed up rapidly.
Infrared radiators use electromagnetic waves set at a certain frequency to heat the room while the radiator itself stays cool. The electromagnetic waves do the heating of the room and not the radiator itself. It is usually equipped with safety sensors to turn the device off in the event of a rollover.
Oil-filled radiators are filled with thermal oil. This oil is warmed up by the heating element of the heater and subsequently, warm air is slowly let out through the fins of the radiator.
The beauty of the Elnur Encombi and Elnur Ingenium is the smart features and the high programmable ability of both heaters.
Also, both of them ensure that your energy consumption levels are kept at a very minimal level while offering you maximum comfort and peace of mind. Both of them are very great heaters. The only deal-breaker might be the price difference. But all the same, whichever one you end up picking is going to serve you to the fullest.
