Ceramic fan heater TFC 20 E

Soothing warmth for your home, hobby and office.

Silent and compact ceramic fan heater

With the slim ceramic fan heater tower TFC 20 E cold days as well as the months of winter have suddenly become less daunting and no longer give you the shivers. Forget about cold feet and long heat-up times. This rapid heater in compact tower design requires only very little space in your living room and with its two selectable heating levels of 1,000 W and 2,000 W ensures powerful heating. The temperature can be steplessly adjusted via the thermostat fitted on top. Optionally, the ultra-silent device distributes the warm air with an oscillating movement rotating vertically by 80°. This way, a perfectly homogenous distribution of the warmth in the room is achieved. As a result the TFC 20 E is predestined to be used as flexible permanent heating solution in little-used rooms or as additional heating for the chilly time between seasons.

Unlike conventional fan heaters with heating wires the TFC 20 E comes equipped with a modern PTC ceramic heating element. Design-related, this technology offers a wide range of advantages: shorter heat-up times, a longer lifetime and warmth free from emissions.

Warmth without unwelcome side effects

Thanks to the zero-emission heat produced by TFC ceramic fan heaters, persons with a sensitive respiratory tract such as small children or allergy sufferers can breathe freely without worries. In contrast to the heating wires of conventional heating devices, the ceramic heating elements of the TFC 20 E do not burn dust particles air animal hair. What consequently remains is odourless warm room air that is free from irritants.

More safety for an increased sense of well-being

The TFC 20 E not only impresses with an innovative heating technology, built-in protective functions can further emphasize the leadership qualities of this tower-type fan heater. In case of conventional heating devices where a burnt heating wire already leads to a total write-off of the device, the TFC 20 E can score with its long-lived ceramic heating elements. It's safe to say that no wire will burn out in this case. The "premature death" due to overheating also poses no threat to the ceramic heater. In case of imminent overheating the TFC 20 E simply switches off automatically. If the device was knocked over unintentionally, the integrated tilt protection switch automatically switches the device off at a certain inclination angle.

The mobile ceramic fan heater tower TFC 20 E is extremely versatile and undemanding. Provided there is a nearby socket, the fan heater quickly produces cosy warmth in all closed rooms at the push of a button. Simply plug it in, switch it on and enjoy.

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.

Faster air heating – more agreeable feel-good climate

The tower-type ceramic fan heater TFC 20 E impresses with practice-oriented details:

TFC 20 E – control panel
Easy to handle: The TFC 20 E comes equipped with a steplessly adjustable thermostat and 2 heating levels (1,000 W / 2,000 W)
TFC 20 E – convenient carrying handle
The convenient carrying handle permits an easy transportation of the tower-type fan heater TFC 20 E to any desired operating site.
TFC 20 E – automatic switch-off
Extra safety: To be on the safe side, the TFC 20 E will switch off automatically if knocked over accidentally
TFC 20 E – automatic oscillation
The TFC 20 E comes with an on-demand oscillation function. This means that the housing rotates vertically by 80° 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.
