Tubular Heaters FAQ

What are tube heaters?

Tube heaters are a type of electric heating device that is mainly used for background heating. Because of their compact form and low heat output, they’re perfect for walk-in cupboards and attics in your house. They’re also used for industrial heating because of their affordability, versatility, and low-cost operation. Other places where you’ll find tube heaters are inside garages, storage rooms, bike sheds, and greenhouses.

What size tube heater do you need?

The best way to find the appropriate size of tube heater for your space is by checking the wattage rating. It’s best to purchase something that will provide enough heat for your needs. For smaller spaces such as attics and cellars, tube heaters between 40 to 120 watts will suffice. For bigger spaces, you might want to purchase something that has a rating of around 200 watts and above. 

Remember, tube heaters aren’t designed to heat an entire room - they’re supposed to supplement your current central heating or electric heaters for spots where their heat doesn’t reach.

How do tube heaters work?

Tube heaters have simple internal workings and are also easy to operate. They work using electricity much like how a light bulb works. Tube heaters then convert electricity into heat and dissipate it using their tubular bodies typically made from hot-rolled steel. This material is excellent in providing heat to your place without getting rust or damaged easily

How much do tube heaters cost to run?

Data from the UK’s Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Energy shows that the country spends 15.14 pence per kWh. This data was collected from October to December 2021. If you purchase a tube heater with a power rating of 80w and run it 24/7, you’ll only be incurring costs of around £106.17 per year.

Should you decide to get one that has a power rating of 240 watts to be used in larger spaces, you’ll only add around £318.52 annually to your electric bill while running it 24/7.

Are tube heaters any good?

If you’re looking for something to supplement your current heating systems such as central heating or electric radiators, then, yes, tube heaters are the perfect addition to your home or office space. They’re also excellent for places where radiators can’t reach such as attics and greenhouses. You can also install them easily and they typically come with safety brackets and a 1.5-metre cable with a plug.

Can you put tube heaters in bathrooms?

Yes, you definitely can, as long as they come with an IP rating. This ensures that the tube heater you’re about to purchase has some level of waterproofing to protect them from accidental water sprays inside your bathroom. After all, there might be times when water might be present and hit your tube heater. QBIC’s range of tube heaters all come with an IP rating of IPX4 or better.

They can also help make certain spots in your bathroom warmer which is very much welcome during colder winter nights.
