Choosing the right heaters for your property

SÜKA heaters will run most economically when correctly sized and used. If they are undersized they will work harder to produce the necessary heat and therefore NOT run as efficiently.

In addition to these details, we include a choosing guide on our website. Alternatively, call us and we can provide all the help you could need on choosing the right product for your property.

For a free demonstration and survey of your property, please give us a call on the phone numbers on the back page. You can also use our online choosing guide to work out which heaters your property may need.

Choosing the right heaters for your property will ensure you get the maximum efficiency and economy from your central heating. We’d be pleased to help you make the right choice, whatever property type you may have.

Our heaters have found good homes in cob buildings, conservatories, old manor houses, new homes, offices, stone cottages, village halls and many more buildings. You can be confident that you have made the right choice with SÜKA.

The 500 watts, 800 watts, 1.0 kilowatt, 1.5 kilowatts and 1.6-kilowatt radiators are available in one size only in each type. The 1.0 kilowatt and the 1.6 kilowatts are BOTH of the same dimensions. The 2.0-kilowatt radiator is available in four different sizes. The 2.5-kilowatt radiator is available in two
different sizes. The reason for the varying sizes in the larger sized radiators is that a greater surface area is available should there be sufficient wall space to install on. In larger rooms, it is always advisable to use the bigger sized radiators. The bigger the radiator in physical size the more efficient it is as the heat is spread on a wider area. There is also an additional benefit of extra lower surface temperatures.

Working out the size you need.

To work out the size of the radiator (in kilowatts) needed to heat each room, use the formula:
number of kw = volume of room x 0.04
For example for a room 3m x 4m x 2.5m high:
No. of kw = 3 x 4 x 2.5 x 0.04 = 1.2
If a room has a north-facing outer wall then increase the
result of 25%.
