What are fan convectors?

Fan convectors cleverly combine sleek style with effective operation and they are an ideal heat emitter for low temperature systems.

Fan convectors are a type of heat emitter. Unlike a conventional radiator, fan convectors heat the air that flows through the unit before circulating the warm air into the room to bring the space up to temperature. Behind their sleek casing, a fan convector is comprised of a series of sophisticated elements which enable them to effectively distribute warmth into a room. The convector does require an electrical input, however the savings in heat energy can more than offset the cost of the electricity.

In a Grant Solo Fan Convector, there is an air sensor, water sensor, heat exchanger and a patented backward curved impeller fan. Cool air enters the bottom of the fan convector and passes upwards through the unit courtesy of the fan. As the air passes through the heat exchanger, the heat held in the system water is transferred into the air which then exits the fan convector at the top.

Solo Fan Convectors have a low water content and sophisticated temperature controls which enable them to produce the precise amount of heat when and where it is needed. Once the water temperature within the fan convector reaches 29ºC, it begins to operate. The unit will then achieve and sustain the desired temperature (18ºC, 20ºC, 22ºC or 24ºC ) set by the user via the control panel. They also have a comparatively large surface area, compared to traditional radiators, so this makes fan convectors an ideal partner for air source heat pumps.
