Item comes with a good length of electrical cable attached, about 1.5m. The two hoses have compression fittings at both ends. The fan switch on the front has three positions: high speed, low speed and off. The fan activates automatically when the central heating sends hot water through the unit. There are two air inlet grilles, one on either side of the outlet grille on the front of the unit, so it can be mounted under a kitchen unit that is entirely boxed in (no need to cut any ventilation holes). You need to purchase two 15mm isolator valves to allow you to isolate the unit from the central heating in the event of a problem with the unit (between £1 and £3 each from various suppliers but also available here:Plumb-Pak Compression Isolator Valve 15mm Chrome - Pack of 2). There is no cold air setting on this unit, unlike the new Smiths units where the fan can be activated without the heating being on, hence the lower price.
The low setting is very quiet, and is all I need to heat my kitchen which is about 25 square meters. The high setting is noticeable but is not offensive. The brushed steel grille looks good. I had already prepared the area for installation (pipes and electricity) prior to delivery, so it took 30 minutes to fully install and check for leaks, including cutting the plinth.
One attraction to this particular one was the 2 year warranty.
Ours has been fitted under the 2 cupboards than form part of the breakfast bar. We chose to have the white grill front.
I must say that although we havent really used it yet as its June, the fitter did switch it on after fitting and the heat was as good as any big radiator. Im looking forward to seeing how it performs in the Winter though.
Our kitchen isnt as big as the heater says it covers so I am hoping it is more than adequate for the kitchen and the hall.
Looks great actually. I'd never heard of these until a kitchen designer meantioned them.
No instructions in the box though which should be included for fitting.
I have not wired it into a room thermostat for operation and the unit simply switches on when it detects hot central heating water passing through it. I imagine with it wired to a room thermostat it would be even more effective. I much prefer this to a radiator and you save space allowing wall to wall units to be installed.
