Socket fan heaters TFC 1 E / TFC 2 E
Ceramic heater for use at home and on the road.
Quick and agreeable warmth
With the extremely light-weight socket heaters TFC 1 E / TFC 2 E, which are barely larger than a human hand, you always have a source of cosy warmth handy both at home and when travelling. Taking one of these mobile ceramic fan heaters with you, cold feet become a thing of the past even on your alpine winter holidays. And since these mini fan heaters are simply plugged into a socket, they hardly take up any room and spare you the effort of installing cables.
The attractively designed and structurally identical socket fan heaters only differ with regard to their colour appearance: the model TFC 1 E impresses with a modern, white cover, while the TFC 2 E comes along in a classic black. With a heating capacity of 500 W and two fan stages both devices quickly provide cosy feel-good warmth in smaller rooms. The first fan stage is used for normal operation, and the second one serves as a rapid heating option for quickly distributing the warm air in the room. The effective mini heaters can generate heat within only a few minutes wherever it is needed – without having to heat up the entire house or flat. No matter whether in the bathroom or in the kitchen, on the couch, in the child's room or home office – the two socket fan heaters TFC 1 E / TFC 2 E turn unpleasantly cold spots into comfortable oases of well-being.
Silent and compact ceramic socket fan heater
The operation of the socket fan heater is conceivably easy: plug it in, switch it on, and select a temperature between 15 and 30 °C on the LED display, which will be controlled by a thermostat. The heat will be given off immediately – or alternatively at a desired point in time, for the devices come equipped with a 12-hour timer. The perfect solution e.g. for preheating the bedroom without having the socket fan heater run continuously. In addition, the models comes with an energy-efficient automatic switch-off function making them switch off when reaching the target value.
Finally zero-emission warmth
The air heated by the ceramic fan heaters of the TFC series remains agreeably clean and odour-free since the PTC ceramic heating elements generate warmth that is completely free of emissions. Unlike conventional fan heaters with heating wires, the ceramic heating element does not burn any dust particles or, worse still, animal hair. This protects the sensitive respiratory tracts of allergy sufferers, toddlers and other sensitive persons.
Safety is guaranteed with socket fan heaters
The socket fan heaters TFC 1 E / TFC 2 E are absolutely reliably protected against overheating. Their fire-proof ceramic elements are extremely durable, and moreover, ceramic heating devices do not have any heating wires that could burn out. The fan run-on function with countdown automatically cools the heating element of the mini fan heater for 60 seconds after switch-off, so it can be safely unplugged from the socket.
Faster air heating – more agreeable feel-good climate
Compared to the conventional heating coil technology (B) the shorter heat-up times are not the only distinguishing feature of Trotec fan heaters with PTC ceramic heating elements (A). There are also substantial process-related differences in the response behaviour of the heating elements.
Although both devices maintain the preselected target temperature (orange) in a similar manner by means of thermostat control, the respective temperature adaptation takes place at a significantly reduced speed and with greater deviations from the desired target temperature in case of devices with heating wires. The reason for this is the different conductivity behaviour of the heating elements: if current flows through the heating coils or wires, they will always retain the same temperature once they have heated up. For controlling the desired room temperature, the power supply is first interrupted, causing the coil/wire to cool down, and then re-activated by the thermostat so that the coil/wire heats up again completely before it is switched back off upon reaching the set target temperature.
This "on/off process" causes greater temperature fluctuations than with ceramic heating elements, for the material of the latter provides an integrated temperature self-regulation. The hotter PTCs get, the higher is their electrical resistivity, resulting in less current flowing through the heating element and in a reduced heating capacity, and thus in significantly lower temperature fluctuations and less switch-on and switch-off processes in thermostat-controlled operation. For this reason, ceramic fan heaters are able to create more even room temperatures for a pleasant indoor climate.
