How Do Heaters Work?

A large range of heaters are currently commercially accessible. Although similar concepts apply across the board, there are some differences across heater models. Smaller heaters often use electricity as opposed to gas, oil, or another fossil fuel-based heating source. In all types of electric heaters, the electrical resistor is the most ubiquitous component.

Turning on a heater generates an electrical current that warms the nichrome wire parts, also called the heating coils. When a current flows through a resistor, the electrical energy is converted to heat. Because of this, electric heaters have another name: resistance heating units.

Whether or not an electric fan is included with the heater determines what comes next. A heater’s fan may be used to pull in cool air for more efficient operation. Just as with a hair drier, the air is forced over the heating components and then into the room. Since the heat is dispersed via the air, we refer to this process as convection heating. Convection heaters are effective because they quickly warm a room by circulating hot air.

Without a fan, air must enter the heater from the bottom. The air is heated as it moves over the coils and is then released through the device’s top. An ordinary electric stove has a heating element that provides radiant heat. It works well in limited quarters and places where you’ll be quite close to the heat source. Radiant heaters like electric baseboards may be installed without disrupting the structure of your home while yet providing efficient heating.
