Meaco launches range of motion detection heaters
Air treatment and heating brand Meaco has launched a range of heaters that work by detecting motion and can switch on when someone enters a room or off when they leave.
“Traditional heating,” explains Meaco, “works by setting the temperature by using a thermostat to maintain a room temperature, regardless of whether the room is used constantly or only occasionally. A spare bedroom, children’s playroom, conservatory, office workspace or shed may have infrequent use, but in the colder weather still need warming up.
The new MeacoHeat Motion heaters with their unique motion detection sensors can be used as stand-alone heaters for these spaces, as they will only switch on when a person walks into the room. When they leave the room they will switch off, saving money on heating bills as well as being kinder to the environment. There are two models in the range available in either red, black or white, and their compact design makes them suitable for any room in the house.
MeacoHeat Motion heaters use a safe PTC ceramic technology to offer fast start-up time with almost instant heat. A thermal cut out and tilt safety switch ensure that if they are accidentally knocked over they switch off. A fan-only option means they can be used all year, adding warmth in the summer months on a chill day, but becoming a fan to cool a room in hotter weather.
The smaller model, 1.8kW, has two outputs levels to save energy, a 1-7 hour off timer and a fan-only mode for summer use.
The larger 2.0Kw adds oscillation to the specification to distribute the heat evenly through a 70° arc. A three-level thermostat replaces the off timer to provide another level of control.
