Selection

Selecting CH ceramic heaters

CH ceramic heaters provide virtually instant direct heat to a target area.  The target area can be an entire building or a smaller area within an otherwise unheated building.

We do not recommend using ceramic heaters as a total heating solution where the ceiling height exceeds 4m

As a guide to selection please follow the following example:

Use ceramic heaters to heat a well- insulated community hall
10m long by 5m wide x 3.5m high.

Step One: Determine the total kW required

This is achieved by multiplying the square meters of floor area by the relevant Watts per square meter figure (see table one)

Floor area = 10m x 5m = 50 square meters

Select a figure of 200W per square meter from table 1 and multiply by the floor area

50 square meters x 200W per square meters = 10,000W (10kW) minimum kW output required

Step Two: Select heater outputs and mounting heights

Where possible use a smaller number of 3kW heaters rather than a greater number of 1.5kW heaters. In this example the ceiling height is 3.5m allowing us to select 3kW heaters mounted at the recommended height of 3m whilst observing the required clearance above the heater.  The minimum number of heaters required is 4 (4 x 3kW = 12kW).

We would therefore select 4 x 3kW ceramic heaters which should be wall mounted at 3m above floor level and evenly distributed.
