The Smiths Space Maker SST8 Floor Mounted Hydronic Fan Convector is perfect for places where space is particularly limited. Because the unit fits flush to the floor, no wall space is taken up and effective heat can be distributed at a low level. The Smiths Space Maker SST8 Floor Mounted Hydronic Fan Convector is perfect for areas such as halls or lobbies where circulation of air is important.
HOW DOES HYDRONIC FAN CONVECTION WORK?
Fan convectors require connection to a wet central heating system and an electrical connection to run the fan. Hot water passes through the heat exchanger and heat is transfered to the aluminium fins. Cooler air is drawn in and heated before being expelled back into the room. This technology uses, on average, less than 2p of electricity per day. It means that a more even temperature gets distributed and the room will be heated much faster than a traditional panel radiator.

Highly Energy Efficient
Independent tests have shown that fan convectors use at least 24% less energy than radiators for room heating. They also use 5% of the water content of an equivalent output radiator - therefore the room heats up faster and response to changing conditions is quicker.
Compatible with Central Heating System
Fan convectors work efficiently within central heating systems regardless of whether they are connected to a traditional boiler-fed system or renewable technology such as a heat pump.
Help Improve SAP Ratings
In accordance with the Code for Sustainable Homes, fan convectors assist in improving the SAP rating of a home and is similar in efficiency to underfloor heating.
Low Surface Temperature
Fan convectors have very low surface temperatures and are not hot to the touch, unlike traditional radiators. This means that fan convectors are perfectly safe around children and the elderly.
Compact and Small
Fan convectors are considerably smaller than radiators of an equivalent output. They are designed to be installed in dead spaces - so the room does not have to be designed around the heating.
