convector heaters are intended for full central heating of the home and there is a large variety of models. The heaters are simple to install and more user friendly than ever.
The heaters are approved and certified according to international CCa specifications EN 60335 and carry the CE mark, thus complying with European safety standards.
All heaters are fitted with on/off switch and electronic thermostat, maintaining a very stable room temperature.
An important safety feature of the heater is the thermal cut out switch, this disconnects the power to the heater if an object accidentally falls onto the heater body. When the covering object is removed the cut out will reset automatically once the heater reaches a safe
Burning dust and associated discolouring is a problem with many convector heaters. Our convector heaters reduce this problem due to the low temperature on the heating element.
This is particularly beneficial for those with asthma and allergies.
|The heating elements have aluminium fins with perforations and a large surface, distributing the heat in an effective way. This is why the average temperature of the element, in the operating phase, is one of lowest on the market. The critical temperature for dust-burning is 225ºC. In a Beha convector heater this temperature will occur only for a short period when the heater is switched on in a cold room. After a short while the element temperature will stabilize at 90ºC. Therefore the front panel’s surface-temperature will be under the prescribed 80ºC. The elements are fitted in special holders that eliminate unwanted noise from the heater. In addition, the Beha heater has galvanized back plate which reduces the temperature against the wall. The Beha convector heaters are approved by Nemko with an international CB test certificate, which makes them suitable for sale in Europe and most countries of the world.|
|All our convector heaters are equipped with a frost guard function. That means if the thermostat wheel is turned to the snow crystal symbol it will maintain the room at 5ºC room temperature. |
|Another feature of the heater is the heat outlet on the front panel, this guides the warm air away from the wall. The combination of the low temperature on the heating element and the design and location of its openings reduces the possibility for dust assembling and consequential discolouration|
The heaters have a child-proof cover on the operating panel.
|The maximum surface temperature on the front panel is 80°c at 20°c room temperature|
Beha convector heaters are equipped with a sensitive electronic thermostat that has an accuracy of 0.2ºC at 20ºC. This provides a constant temperature in the room.
The heater tilts forward on the fixing bracket for ease of cleaning behind.
Beha convector heaters are double insulated. This makes earthing of the heaters unnecessary and thus approved in accordance with IEC Protection Class II
The heater can be installed in a variety of rooms, including bathrooms, kitchens and utility rooms etc. The heaters are approved by all major approval regulators and have protection class IPx4
Beha convector heaters take up less space
The convector heaters do not need much space. They can be fitted 3 cm from the floor and only require 5 cm above the heater. That means a total space of 28 cm. They can also be placed in corners and only require 2 cm at each end
Simple Heat Calculations
Measure the area of the room to be heated in m2.
Allow 100 watts per m2 for areas needing to be warm, e.g. Living rooms and Bathrooms.
Allow 75-100 watts per m2 for areas such as bedrooms which you may not require to have
the same level of heating.
(add extra to rooms with higher than normal ceilings, remember some rooms are colder than
others particularly north facing rooms)
Online Heater Calculator
(Please note that in Spain, Portugal and France most houses are not very well insulated in comparison to Norweigan homes. Please select poor insulation when considering the size of your heater or if in doubt use the 100w for every m2 rule)
The approx running cost are 23 cents ( including iva ) per kilowatt hour, based on Iberdrola standard tariff. (rates vary, please check your individual tariff on your electricity bill in your area)
This means that for every 1 kw used continuously for one hour it will cost you 23 cents.
The total cost for a 1kw heater running continuously for 24 hours would therefore be € 5.52.
(These figures are greatly reduced with the thermostat in operation)
You can work out roughly how much your heating would be using our heaters the following way.
Work out the square meterage of the room/rooms you want to heat. The chart will show you the size of radiator in Watts that would be needed to effectively heat that room.
Each 100 watts will cost you 2.3 cents including iva per hour on the standard tariff (Iberdrolla´s figures, the correct term is 23 cents /kilowatt hour, it means the same).
The cost is varied by the fact that Beha heaters have thermostats built into them and therefore are not running continuously for one hour as they will be reaching the set temperature and turning off.
The thermostat will also regulate according to differing factors like the outdoor temperature and how many open doors or windows you have in the area where the heaters are fitted.
A heater with a greater wattage does not use more energy, and does not cost more to run.
The heater’s element will be working less frequently, which also gives a lower surface temperature.
The History of Beha
Beha is one of the oldest and most traditional electrical companies in Norway, still in operation under the same family ownership. The product groups produced by the company today are exactly the same as those produced by the company at the time of its founding way back in 1917 – electric cookers and heaters.
This expertise, developed over many years, and the fact that Beha has always been at the leading edge of developing new technology and improved production methods creates a sound basis for the company’s excellent reputation in the market. In Porsgrunn, about 150 kilometres south of the capital Oslo.
Beha has an advanced production site of 12.000 square metres. This site includes a separate department for thin plate work, an enamelling plant and an assembly department.
The site also includes the main warehouse from where goods are dispatched to destinations both in Norway and abroad. Beha is an entirely Norwegian company which is privately owned, something weare very proud of.
Beha operates within two strictly defined product groups. The first product group includes all kinds of cooking appliances (gas/electric) and cooker hoods.
The second product group is a large variety of electrical heaters.
