Installed in buildings and living quarters, electrical storage heaters are designed to meet the heating requirements in these environments. The state of the structure, the users’ sensitivity to heat, and weather conditions are crucial factors affecting the heating system’s charge rate. During the charge time the appliance’s storage core is heated to the required temperature. The stored heat is then emitted continuously over the appliance’s surface. When a user requires a higher ambient temperature this can be set at the thermostat or timer. A fan integrated in the heater draws in ambient air and blows it back into the room after it has passed over the heated storage core.
