Ceramic fan heaters of the TFC series
Soothing warmth – quickly generated and ideally suited for allergy sufferers
When it comes to the mobile heating of private living spaces by means of electric heating devices, there should be absolutely no need for you to compromise. This is true for both the visual appearance and the technology employed for heat production. This is where Trotec comes into play with the compact, ultralight ceramic fan heaters of the TFC series. These heaters boast a super modern design and at the same time they can impress with inner values.
The optional on-demand oscillation function of the heating devices TFC 18 E and TFC 20 E makes sure that the warm air is not only blown out in a targeted manner but also distributed in the entire room thanks to the swivel motion.

Unlike conventional heating wire devices, Trotec ceramic fan heaters use integrated PTC ceramic heating elements to produce heat quickly and in an energy-efficient manner. This heating technology offers a wide range of advantages when used in your home or at the office: shorter heat-up times, a longer lifetime and warmth free from emissions.
Ideally suited for allergy sufferers and asthmatics
The respiratory tract and mucous membranes of children, allergy sufferers and asthmatics are extremely sensitive. Unlike conventional fan heaters (with heating wires) the ceramic fan heaters do not burn dust particles or animal hair on their heating elements, as a result the room and breathing air remains agreeably clean, odourless and free from irritants.
Safe operation in unattended rooms and households with children
Ceramic heating devices do not have heating wires that could burn out. The fire-proof PTC heating elements are extremely durable. Moreover, their own higher weight reduces the risk of these rapid heaters to tip over. In case of households with children as well as romping and frolicking animals it is not hard to imagine that a fan heater could tip over or be covered with an item of clothing. In such an event the overheating protection in the shape of an automatic switch-off function and the integrated tilt protection switch ensure additional safety.
Faster air heating – more agreeable feel-good climate
Compared to the conventional heating coil technology (B) the shorter heat-up times are not the only distinguishing feature of Trotec fan heaters with PTC ceramic heating elements (A). There are also substantial process-related differences in the response behaviour of the heating elements.
Although both devices maintain the preselected target temperature (orange) in a similar manner by means of thermostat control, the respective temperature adaptation takes place at a significantly reduced speed and with greater deviations from the desired target temperature in case of devices with heating wires. The reason for this is the different conductivity behaviour of the heating elements: if current flows through the heating coils or wires, they will always retain the same temperature once they have heated up. For controlling the desired room temperature, the power supply is first interrupted, causing the coil/wire to cool down, and then re-activated by the thermostat so that the coil/wire heats up again completely before it is switched back off upon reaching the set target temperature.
This "on/off process" causes greater temperature fluctuations than with ceramic heating elements, for the material of the latter provides an integrated temperature self-regulation. The hotter PTCs get, the higher is their electrical resistivity, resulting in less current flowing through the heating element and in a reduced heating capacity, and thus in significantly lower temperature fluctuations and less switch-on and switch-off processes in thermostat-controlled operation. For this reason, ceramic fan heaters are able to create more even room temperatures for a pleasant indoor climate.
