Working principle

The best-known of electric heating modes is the convector. A last generation convector is quickly installed, easy to use and fitted with several types of temperature regulation (electronic or mechanical). It allows fast heating time and is adapted to all types of rooms. Quite practical, it can be installed with a standing kit as well.

How does it work?

As its name suggests, a convector system is based on the principle of convection. Ambient air enters through the bottom of the device and builds heat by running up against the electric heating element. It then rises inside the unit and exits through openings on the top of the unit. It works similarly to a thermal loop. Hot air is lighter than cold air, so it constantly circulates in the unit, from the bottom to the top.

Suited for all rooms, they come in many models with a wide range of power and programming options and styles. They are extremely compact, easy to install and use


  • Fast heat production
  • Easy to install and use
  • Limited wall space needed
  • Possible installation on standing kit
  • Accurate and integrated electronic control

Atlantic Recommends

To allow your convector system to work best, Atlantic recommends putting it in an open area where the air circulates freely. Avoid placing it behind a door or piece of furniture or under moulding or a curtain.
