De'Longhi Fivy Oil Radiator Review: Heating At Its Finest

During winters, heating up your home is your absolute number one priority. But in this day and age, there are a ton of options for heating up your home. Two of the most popular are oil radiators and electric radiators. Both have their own upsides and drawbacks, based on a number of factors. In this article, we are going to review the De'Longhi Fivy Oil Radiator and see why it presents itself to be the better option for heating up your home.


All radiators have one main goal: to provide heat. Oil and electric radiators work under quite different principles. Most oil radiators work by making an electrical heating mechanism heat up a reservoir filled with oil until the oil heats up and provide necessary heating. Electric radiators, on the other hand, do not contain liquid and makes the electricity directly heat metal components to provide heating.Yes, electric radiators might appear advantageous based on how quickly they can provide heat. But oil radiators like the De'Longhi Fivy would stump electric radiators on quite a few other factors.


Provided the fact that any radiators can cause injury due to their heating nature,electric radiators do carry significantly higher safety risks. Primarily because electric radiators tend to produce more heat, and has the serious potential of igniting combustible materials that surround it. Secondly, electric radiators carry with them a huge amount of voltage in their system, in grave cases, this poses a significant potential of danger from electrocution when water enters the system. Thankfully, the De'Longhi Fivy Oil Radiator is IP24 rated water resistant, which removes the worry of water getting in the system, causing the ruination of the radiator and danger of electrocution.

Environmental Impact

Both radiators score a point here. Electric radiators do not emit any harmful byproducts. Although oil radiators have oil inside them, which could pose a potential hazard because oil is bad of the environment, they are not being burned.In fact, it doesn't need to be topped-up at all, in the entirety of its life.

Operational Cost and Efficiency

Due to the way they operate, electric heaters cost more to operate because they constantly have to charge the system with high voltage in order to keep it heating up, this would have a significant impact on the electricity bill. Oil radiators like the De'Longhi Fivy work by heating up a reservoir that has oil in it which would absorb the heat. Because oil doesn't cool down quickly, constant reheating is not necessary, in turn saving you money on your electricity bill.


Overall, electric radiators tend to be less quiet than oil radiators. The reason behind is again, how they operate. Electric heaters need to constantly surge the system with huge voltages to keep the system hot. On the contrary, oil radiators only need to heat the oil reservoir a couple of times during its usage, because after the oil is hot enough, it stays hot for a very long time making it not constantly heat the system up which provides it its quiet nature, which is very beneficial in a home environment.
