Ceramic fan heater TFC 17 E

The energy-efficient turbo heater for cold days. Instant heat without warm-up time!

Quick and agreeable warmth

Grey skies, rain and cold: The nights in late summer can be unpleasantly cold and during the day the temperatures in unheated rooms are usually anything but cosy. So how should one deal with capricious weather conditions? Turn the central heating back up and proverbially 'burn money'? Or snuggle up in a warm blanket and just hope the sun will come out on the morrow?

Neither! With a ceramic fan heater of the TFC series you will freeze neither on cold days nor in the dreary time between seasons when summer is slowly but surely drawing to a close giving way to a chilly and damp fall.  

With two selectable heating levels (1,200 W / 2,000 W) and a steplessly adjustable thermostat the ceramic fan heater TFC 17 E recommends itself as powerful additional heater for almost every location within your private living environment. Be it in the living room, bedroom or children's room: Wherever quick and reliable heating is required, the fan heater TFC 17 E provides thermostat-controlled feel-good warmth with its modern PTC ceramic heating. Once the set temperature value is exceeded, the fan heater switches off fully automatically. When falling below the target temperature, the device automatically switch itself back on. For heating larger spaces the device is further equipped with an on-demand 60° oscillation function to widely distribute the heated air in the room.

Altogether, the TFC 17 E is extremely adaptable. Owing to its compact dimensions the fan heater takes up very little space. The convenient carrying handle simplifies quick site changes and if the device is no longer needed, you can quickly and space-savingly put it away in a closet out of sight.

Generating feel-good temperatures without compromising safety

Cutting-edge safety and security features

The TFC 17 E not only uses state-of-the-art technology, the fan heater can also score with its safety and security features. The extra bit of safety is ensured by not using sensitive heating wires. The heating wires employed in conventional electric heaters not only become red-hot, but can also burn out if used continuously. The PTC ceramic heating elements used in the TFC 17 E on the other hand are durable and low in maintenance. The tilt protection switch integrated in the device base guarantees the immediate switch-off of the device should the fan heater be close to toppling over. And in case of an imminent overheating the device will be switched off fully automatically. Better safe than sorry.

Heat generated for every room as fast as lightning

Immediately ready for use and right at home wherever it goes

The TFC 17 E provides instant heat in an uncomplicated manner. Simply position the device in the room, plug it in and switch it on. That's all it takes for cosy warmth to be spread in the room like wildfire. When relocating to another room you can just take the light and compact fan heater along with you.

With the fan heater TFC 17 E allergy sufferers can breathe freely again

Zero-emission warmth – no unwelcome odours or other side effects

These days an increasing number of people suffers from allergies and react very sensitively to polluted room air. For this reason our fan heaters of the TFC series are an absolute must-have for allergy sufferers. Whilst conventional heating devices often produce unpleasant odours as a result of burning dust particles and animal hair at the heating wires, the ceramic heating elements of the TFC 17 E generate 100 % clean heat without side effects.

The ceramic fan heater TFC 17 E impresses with practice-oriented details:

TFC 17 E – control panel
Easy to handle: The TFC 17 E comes equipped with a steplessly adjustable thermostat and 2 heating levels (1,200 W / 2,000 W).
TFC 17 E – convenient carrying handle
The convenient carrying handle permits an easy transportation of the fan heater TFC 17 E to any desired operating site.
TFC 17 E – automatic switch-off
Extra safety: To be on the safe side, the TFC 17 E will switch off automatically if knocked over accidentally.
TFC 17 E – automatic oscillation
The TFC 17 E comes with an on-demand oscillation function. This means that the housing rotates vertically by 60° so that the hot air can be distributed in the room more easily.

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

Radio thermostat BN35

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.

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.
