Ceramic fan heater TFC 18 E
Rapid heater with an appealing exterior. Feel-good climate at the push of a button.
Silent and compact ceramic fan heater
If soothing warmth is immediately required in individual living spaces, the attractive ceramic fan heater TFC 18 E recommends itself as the perfect solution. The fan heater TFC 18 E harmoniously integrates in the living space and requires only very little space owing to the compact dimensions. On hot summer days the integrated fan operation additionally meets any desire for soothing refreshment whilst the heating function is deactivated. For heating or cooling: The choice is yours!
Whether for use in living spaces, offices, conservatories or workshops, with its two selectable heating levels of 1,100 W and 1,800 W the TFC 18 E ensures the required radiant heat. The temperature can be steplessly adjusted via the thermostat fitted on top. The on-demand 70° oscillation further increases the fan heater's effective area so the warm air is widely distributed in the room.
Unlike conventional fan heaters with heating wires the TFC 18 E comes equipped with a modern PTC ceramic heating element. Design-related, this technology offers a wide range of advantages when used in your home: shorter heat-up times, a longer lifetime and warmth free from emissions.
Warmth without unwelcome odours or residues
Conventional heating devices burn dust particles or animal hair at their heating wires. This results in residues and unpleasant odours in the room air. With the ceramic heating elements of the TFC series these side effects are history. With every breath allergy sufferers or small children with sensitive respiratory tracts will perceive the contrast to conventional fan heaters. No smells of burning, pure breathing air, increased well-being.
Safety in any situation
Standard heating devices with heating wire come with a well-known Achilles' heel: their heating wires. If these burn, the devices are instantly rendered useless. Here the TFC 18 E can score with its durable ceramic heating element, seeing as there are no heating wires that could burn out. Should the device tip over by accident, the integrated tilt protection switch ensures the immediate switch-off and combined with the overheating protection an overall safe operation is guaranteed.
The compact ceramic heater TFC 18 E is very undemanding. The only requirement is a nearby socket. Then it can play to its strengths at nothing more than the push of a button. Simply set the device up, plug it in and indulge in the cosy warmth.
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.
Trotec brand quality
Benefit from the Trotec brand quality guaranteeing high value, safety and functionality. Via the registered GS mark the inspection authority Bureau Veritas certifies that, if used foreseeably and as intended, the device does not pose a risk to the health and safety of the user.
