Plinth Heaters FAQ

What are plinth heaters?

Plinth heaters are heating devices that are usually installed at the bottom of your kitchen counters, cabinets, and other utility storage units. The plinth is what we usually call the base of a structure such as columns and houses that are typically in the shape of a square or rectangular slab. Plinth heaters are aptly named so because they’re located and produce heat on the plinth.

How do plinth heaters work?

There are two major types of plinth heaters - electricity-powered and those that are connected to a central heating system. Electric-powered ones, as the name suggests, use electricity to produce heat. The heat from its internals (heating elements) is then blown outwards to your home typically by using a fan. 

The ones that are connected to a central heating system use heat from the boilers etc. Once the hot water flows through the plinth heater, a fan then blows the heat through its grill and into your home - much like an electricity-powered heater. They will still need electricity to power the fan, however, they don’t have heating elements like the electricity-powered plinth heaters.

Why should I buy a plinth heater?

The main reason why plinth hearts exist and are highly in demand in the market today is that they save a ton of space in your home. Wall-mounted heaters and radiators can take up significant space rendering a part of your wall practically unusable for any other device or appliance. If you want to fully utilise your space, plinth heaters are an excellent heating option. They’re simple, easy to maintain and provide enough heat output for your needs.

Are plinth heaters any good?

Their price to function ratio is extremely good. Ranging from £240 to £350, plinth heaters are excellent at what they do. They come with high heat output yet do not consume that much energy. The best feature of all is they’re compact and will never get in the way of your home. 

Since they’re designed to be installed at the bottom part of utility cabinets, kitchen counters, and the like, they wouldn’t eat up much real estate in your house. Some models only need 100mm of height so they can be installed snuggly and safely under your counters.

Are plinth heaters noisy?

Most plinth heaters are fan-assisted. Because of this, you’ll hear a little bit of fan noise once you turn it on. However, they don’t produce a sound that most people would consider “noisy”. All you hear is the sound of a fan in the background while you do your chores or relax on your couch with a book - nothing obstructive.

What is a hydronic plinth heater?

Hydronic plinth heaters are simply a type of plinth heater that uses hot water from a central heating system’s boilers as a source of heat. Much like how central heating radiators, they’re reliant on central heating for their operation. The difference is that hydronic plinth heaters use electricity-powered fans to blow the air into parts of your home. Unlike traditional central heating radiators that usually don’t have fans to aid the dissipation of heat.

Where can I install plinth heaters?

Plinth heaters are more commonly used inside domestic homes, especially in kitchens where every space is needed to fit other kitchen appliances and fixtures. However, you can install them in any part of your home or even office that comes with a plinth at the bottom. You’d also need to have an electricity connection in the location where you plan to install a plinth heater. This is because they come with electric-powered fans that help distribute the heat

Are plinth heaters easy to use?

Plinth heaters are easy to operate. Some units even come with technology that can help make their operation even more convenient. Dimplex’s Eco Design Plinth Heater comes with remote control through Bluetooth connectivity that can help you control the temperature settings of your plinth heater. Most modern units also have programmable room temperatures with timers to help you be more specific when it comes to the heat settings of your home.
