Ceramic fan heater TFC 16 E
The quick heating solution for feel-good temperatures: an all-round clean affair
Silent and compact ceramic fan heater
Every now and again we just cannot avoid it: a cold summer. Even at midsummer it can be disagreeably chilly. The living spaces cool down and along with the temperature our own well-being, too, hits rock bottom. Even the heat produced by a central heating system running throughout the winter is not always sufficient. In such cases we long for a reliable heat source providing the right cuddly atmosphere to make us feel good in living or bedrooms. Lucky is the person who has made according provisions in form of an economical ceramic fan heater of the TFC series.
The compact ceramic heater TFC 16 E is ideally suited for use as temporary additional heating solution for the occasional unforeseen cold spell and the time between seasons. Once the outside temperatures drop permanently, the pleasantly quiet rapid heater radiates agreeable, constant heat for additional comfort in your home.
Otherwise unheated areas such as the conservatory or summerhouse can also be brought to the correct temperature with lightning speed using this ceramic heater. Two heating levels (1,200 W / 2,000 W) and a steplessly adjustable thermostat permit the automatic regulation of the room temperature. Quickly and directly.
Once the desired temperature has been reached, the heating device switches off automatically – for as long as the thermostat detects a temperature below the target value. Once that changes, heating will resume.
In ventilation mode, i.e. with deactivated heating function, the all-rounder supplies a fresh breeze and achieves an agreeable cooling effect on your skin. Switching over from ventilation to heating operation can be accomplished by nothing more than a quick turn of your hand at the top of the device.
Clean, odour-free and especially recommended for allergy sufferers
No dust particles or animal hair will be burnt at the surface of the ceramic heating elements, consequently no unpleasant odours – as one may know from other heaters with heating wires – are created. The air remains clean thus protecting the sensitive respiratory tracts of allergy sufferers or small children.
Mobile heat generation to make you feel good on the go
One fan heater for all rooms
The light and compact rapid heater TFC 16 E can be used instantly. Just plug in the power cable, switch the device on and you're done! The room will soon be filled with agreeable warmth. Thanks to its integrated carrying handle you can also easily carry the fan heater to the next room with you.
State-of-the-art safety measures
Twice as safe and reliable application in households with children and animals
The modern PTC ceramic heating of the TFC 16 E guarantees a long-lived, energy-efficient operation without burnt heating wires and consequent malfunctions. The tilt protection integrated in the device base meets highest safety standards and makes sure the ceramic heater is switched off immediately should it be tipped over inadvertently. The same holds true for the overheating protection automatically switching the device off before any harm can be done.
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.

Optimum room temperature control with the socket thermostat BN30
Just install it in the socket and connect it to the heating or cooling device on the socket thermostat BN30, and you can have your heating or cooling unit automatically switched on and off by the BN30 depending on the temperature. The socket thermostat available as an accessory is individually adjustable within a temperature range from 5 °C to 30 °C.
Radio thermostat BN35 with timer switch for the socket
With the radio thermostat BN35 you can easily determine at which room temperature your heating or cooling unit will switch on or off using the remote control. The BN35 set consists of a radio-controlled socket and a radio thermostat. Simply plug the radio-controlled socket in between a wall outlet and your heating or cooling unit. Place the radio thermostat within approx. 20 metres in the place where the room temperature is to be measured. As an alternative, time-controlled regulation can also be carried out.
