NewsVoir | 05 Jan, 2016
With the dripping temperature, it is that time of the year when your comfy room turns into a chilly one. While winters are the most awaited part of the year, the chill in the air makes one long for some sunlight when outdoors and a cosy and warm room when indoors. Room heaters are definitely the answer to that longing for a comfortable and warm room.

While OFRs are one of the most popular choices in room heaters these days, it is important to know why they are the best selection for your home these winters. Primarily, it is important to understand the working of an OFR. Contrary to common misconception, an Oil-filled-radiator, does not burn the oil but uses electricity to heat the oil that is sealed inside the columns or fins. Once heated, it is then transferred to the casing & to the air circulating the fins.Portability and sleek exteriorare some of the key features which make OFRs the top choice.


Key Features of an OFR

    They are virtually noise-less

    Oil filled radiators maintains the temperature of the room

    Oil-filled heaters require very little in the way of maintenance or service

    They don’t dry the air. The lack of a fan means the air in the room won't dry out either unlike a conventional heater. There is no dry heating & the moisture in air is maintained,thus preventing skin dryness

    Oil never needs replenishing. The oil isn't used as a fuel, so there's no need to replace it, ever

    No exposed heating element to ensure safety. The heating element is sealed inside the heater, so there's no chance it will encounter anything flammable

    There are no associated gases or fumes. Since they don't burn oil or gas, they are safe to use indoors



Some more reasons to bring home an OFR

Enhanced safety for children as well as new borns: Unlike an electric heater, an oil heater cools off slowly after being turned off, this gives the baby time to adjust to the change in temperature


Good for Allergy sufferers: For many allergy sufferers, OFR  can be a great choice. Oil-filled heaters have pipes filled with oil and they use natural convection and air flow to distribute heat. Hence, the air doesn't dry out and helps keeping the unnecessary sneezing at bay


While an OFR can be one of the safest choice for your home, it is extremely important to be aware of the commonDo’s and Don’ts of using a room heater:

    Make sure your heater is placed on a level, non-flammable surface

    Keep the heating unit at least 3 feet away from bedding, draperies, furniture and other flammable materials

    Never leave your heating system unattended, especially in the presence of small kids and pets

    Don't use the heater if the cord is frayed or broken

    Never hang items over the heating unit

    Now with ample of know-how about the OFRs, Go ahead and gift yourself and your family a comfortable winters this season by bringing home the latest Oil-Filled-Radiators from Maharaja Whiteline.
