What is the main difference between panel heaters, convection heaters and oil heaters?

Our convection heaters with 2000w have a wire element that reaches around 350 degrees Celsius, and which is in direct contact with the air that passes through the heater. This ensures fast and efficient heating, if you want to raise the room temperature in a short time. As the heating element is very hot and in direct contact with the passing air, this will reduce the humidity, as well as it tends to burn dust.
The 2000w versions are best described as additional heaters and are only intended for occasional use under supervision.

The panel heaters have also a heating element that is in direct contact with the air which ensures fast and efficient heating, but the heating element is different from the convection heaters. The heating element is made of aluminum and reaches a temperature of around 125 degrees. The large physical size of the element ensures good temperature transfer to the passing air, while the temperature of about 125 degrees Celsius dries out the air to a much lesser extent than convection, and is not hot enough to burn dust.

Our oil heaters work by gradually heating the oil in a closed radiator. The surface temperature is lower than convection, and it takes slightly more time to heat a room compared to convection heater. The advantage however is that the process is kinder to the indoor environment, the heating element is not in direct contact with the air that passes through the heater. The result is that the air is dried out to a much lesser extent, compared to a heater that allows the air to pass the heating element directly.

All three technologies are equally energy efficient. 100 Watt power consumption will provide 100 Watt heating, regardless of whether you choose a panel heater, free-standing convection heater or oil radiator.

We therefore advise you to choose a heater with the technology that is best suited for your needs, as panel heaters, convection heaters and oil heaters have different technologies and benefits.
