More than a question I want to open a debate and try to knock down false myths. The winter comes and the one who more who less think adding some extra heating, and always fit the questions of whether to put in a gas stove (but you think wow, having to carry tanks... in Addition you are burning little to little oxygen) or a pellet stove (but are expensive, require installation, flue, replace fuel, and also burn oxygen)... And many in the end by opting for a heat emitter electric because they are plug and play. And here is where I want to get: Which do you choose, or better said, what is more efficient? Does an issuer thermoelectric dry, fluid, ceramic, infrared, heat, blue, green...? Sure many of you have heard or you have said that: "buy this heat emitter is the most efficient because it gives off heat blue..." or "this is more efficient because once turned off it continues to emit heat for hours..." it was just a question that I put To the++ Make your bets!

To contribute my humble opinion to this debate, first saying that the foundation of the operation of any issuer electric is an electrical resistance and its energy efficiency is 100%, this is turn 1Kw of electricity into 1Kw of heat. Neither more nor less. There are those who heat up a circuit through which is passed continuously a stream of air, as would be the case of a hair dryer or a heater as we have in the bathrooms. Other heat a metal structure as a radiator. There are those that are dry, others carry water, and even oil. Can be recessed in a wall, there are with wheels and even decorative that imitate paintings or drawings. In all cases the trick is to heat the air in the room, some do so faster, others more slowly. And the result of each one of them is as efficient as any other. Your efficiency is 100%, 1Kw of light per 1Kw of heat. What if change is your way of spreading it in the time also known as thermal inertia. The heat blue is nothing more than a control panel illuminated in blue in any brand of radiators or emitters, no more, and there are no radiators To+ or++. The only difference between the heater in the bathroom and a stove oil, is that the heater in the bath expels air encourage almost instantly in the same way that when you turn it off the same stop emitting heat. Instead, a radiator, ceramic can take up to an hour to start heating a room, however once off it will continue emitting heat until it cools down completely, it starts late but ends up late, has a high thermal inertia If we could measure in consumption and the heat generated, we both throw exactly the same result, no matter if it is a radiator or dry ceramic, green, or blue... both will generate the same heat consuming the same energy, only that one will expel the heat faster and the other more slowly. Therefore, I do not cheat, choose the heat emitter in function of how fast you want the heat. If you want instant heat because you're going to take a shower: heater. For a room: a radiator with a thermostat and programmable. Personally, I prefer fluid or dry, they heat up fast and its thermal inertia is not very high, so it is easier to schedule. If every day you wake up at 7 what programs to turn on at 6.30 am. If you leave home at 8 what programs to stop at 8.
I contribute my opinion which is coincident with the Andreu GuaspLa electrical energy is the most comfortable, efficient. Clean, silent, etc, with respect to other energies, ! If it were not for the price!!! Which by the way is not expensive, so what happens is that face-to-generate heat if it comes up heads, but you have to take into account their convenience, no fumes, noise, storage tanks, etc How much of what system is better?, I agree with the compi Andreu, 1 Kw. Is 1 Kw and has no turning back, it is as well; however, a ventoliconvector will arrive with your heat far more than a oil cooler, my case, of course must be added the consumption of the resistance the consumption of motorcito of the fan, while also takes advantage of the heat of it. The methods of propaganda each year to invent a slogan again, when I was little (I am now over sixty years old) spoke of the white-hot, black, rates that the more consumías more economical you out, the Kw's clear, because the bill was heart-stopping. Then went out with the night rate, which incidentally, was a solution for a large number of households that did not have installation of heating, then the heat blue, hot green, the ceiling or floor radiant electric, wall heaters, etc, we always talk about the same. I allow myself a little joke: do Not know if you know of a galician in a luxury restaurant recommended to make Soup Imperial and when is the trajeronsusurró "Soup Imperial" ! What screwed! Gazpacho in my town. Because something like that happens with the electric heat resistors, does not give any more than the other. Unless you are talking about heat pumps, but here already there is no resistance and this would be to open a new debate.
Little debate-not to say none on this topic, a radiator, electrical power as it is heated all similar and consume 1kw for 1kw spent, the most expensive energy is there the more they pay for simplicity, and q there are no chimneys, maintenance simple but very expensive to the consumer, oh and heat up very well
