Heater guide
What type of heater should you choose?

Selection guide

Mill offers a broad range of heaters suited to different needs. Here is a quick guide to help you choose the right heater for your needs.

Panel heaters

Mill panel heaters provide a comfortable base temperature throughout your home. Choose between 7 different wattages to adjust the temperature to each room. We generally recommend 70-100 watt per square meter. A panel heater can safely be left on while unattended, during the night or while you are away, due to its safe and efficient x-aluminum heating element and relatively low surface temperature. This lets you return to a warm and comfortable home. Choose between a day/night program or an integrated WiFi with app control to adjust the temperature to your daily routines. The user-friendly Millheat app helps you save money on electricity while away from home or asleep in bed.

Mill panel heaters come in two different styles: Mill Steel and Mill Glass. The unique rounded shape of the Mill Steel heater gives it the appearance of floating on the wall. The Mill Glass heater has a trendy and elegant look.
If you have little free wall space or simply want a more flexible heating source that can be moved around, you may prefer our Mill Convection WiFi heater. This portable heater has the same heating element found in Mill panel heaters, meaning you can safely leave it on unattended.

 

  • A panel heater can only be mounted horizontally. We advice to not hang him too high, because then it looses on efficiency.
  • Panel heaters can be installed in the bathroom (IPX4).
  • Panel heaters are safe for children. The panel only is warm at the top where the outlet is. Someone will certainly not get burned. The maximum surface temperature is approximately 50 degrees (depending on the model).
  • The wall bracket and screws are included.
  • You can also operate the Wifi models on the device itself (if the wifi is switched off).
  • For a room where for example 1200 Watt is efficient, we recommend 2x a model of 600 Watt then 1 of 1200 Watt. The heat will be better distributed throughout the room.
  • The cord is located on the right side of the appliance and can be routed between the wall bracket and the panel heater.
  • The European plug has an angle of 90 degrees and the device cannot be placed over a socket.
  • There is approximately 3 cm distance between the wall and the panel.
  • The panel heater must have free space on all sides: 10cm above and below – 5cm left and right.

Advantages of panel heating:

  • Saving space
  • Fits in a modern interior
  • Rapid heat distribution
  • Does not dry out air
  • Can be placed in a bathroom

Disadvantages panel heating:

  • Limited max wattage possible (max 1500 Watt)
  • Not movable/ flexible
  • Does not retain heat once switched off
  • Relatively more expensive to purchase

Oil filled radiators

If you are looking for a gentle heating source that does not dry the air, a Mill oil filled radiator is the perfect choice. As the heating element of the radiator is not in direct contact with ambient air, it will not burn dust, nor dry out the air. The closed structure of the heaters forces the hot air to rise faster, resulting in more efficient heat distribution throughout the room. In fact, it heats the room 29% faster than traditional oil filled radiators. This makes Mill Oil Premium more energy efficient than other oil heaters and is thus a more sustainable choice. The unique, attractive shape and elegant foot makes it look as though it hovers above the floor. These portable heaters operate quietly and are safe to leave on unattended. The heaters come in 3 different wattages and a variety of operations. Choose between a mechanical thermostat for easy operation, a day/night program for lowering the temperature, or an integrated WiFi with app control for energy saving efficiency.

Fallback in wattage
In the past, an oil radiator could heat continuously at maximum power. This was effective, but the heater itself could get very hot with a high risk of burns if you got close to the surface.

All manufacturers of oil radiators nowadays have to comply with strict EU rules and requirements. When the side of an oil radiator rises above a certain temperature, the power will therefore be reduced during a certain period (eg from 2000 Watt to 1250 Watt). The surface temperature of the heater can then cool down in order not to exceed the maximum permitted surface temperature. This is for the safety of the consumer, so that one cannot get burned if they come into contact with the stove surface.

What is the difference between a mechanical and electronic thermostat?
With a mechanical thermostat of the AB-H1000MEC you can set the temperature higher and lower using a rotary knob. With an electronic thermostat you can accurately set the exact desired temperature in degrees via the LCD screen, this is possible from 5 ° C to 35 ° C.

Advantages of an oil radiator:

  • Does not dry the air
  • Can be used without supervision
  • Energy friendlier than convection

Disadvantages of an oil radiator;

  • takes longer before it distributes heat
  • more expensive in purchase
  • larger in size
  • Cannot be placed in a bathroom

Convection heaters

Mill Convection is a range of highly efficient heaters that provide instant heat as soon as they are turned on. A convection heater is the perfect choice if you want a heater that quickly heats up a room. It is a quieter alternative to traditional fan heaters, so you can enjoy a rapidly heated room without distracting noise. These portable models are easy to move around due to their light weight, handles on both sides and slim body. Convection heaters should not be left on unattended, due to their highly efficient wire heating element. They are a perfect supplementary heating source on chilly days. Choose between two different styles: an elegant steel front or a trendy glass model. The heater comes with a mechanical thermostat for easy operation or electronic thermostat with LED display.

The WiFi model in the Convection series comes with the same heating element as Mill panel heaters, meaning you can safely leave the WiFi Convection heater on unattended.

Advantages of a convector heater:
– Extra fast heat distribution
– Relatively inexpensive to purchase
– Silent in use

Disadvantages of a convector heater:
– Only suitable as additional heating (with the exception of the WiFi models).
– Uses more energy than a (traditional) oil radiator
– Can dry out the air with prolonged use
– Cannot be placed in a bathroom

PTC fan heaters

Do not let the small size of Mill PTC fan heater fool you. This is a powerful heater that will quickly heat up larger rooms. The gentle PTC heating element has a lower surface temperature than normal fan heaters with heating wires. This means that the heater will burn less dust and not dry the air as regular fan heaters do. The small size and “cool-to-the-touch” surface makes it easy to move the heater around wherever you need extra heat. The neat design also allows for easy storage during the summer months. A Mill PTC fan heater is a supplementary heating source that should not be left on unattended, due to its highly efficient heating element.

Advantages of a ventilation heater:
– Rapid heat
– Does not dry out air
– Relatively inexpensive to purchase
– Compact in design

Disadvantages of a ventilation heater:
– Are not 100% silent
– Cannot be used without supervision.
– Cannot be placed in a bathroom
– Can dry out the air with prolonged use

We hope you find the right Mill heater for your needs, to keep you warm in style.
