For even heat distribution
Natural convection operates on a key principle of physics: hot air rises and cold air falls. When cold air at floor level comes into contact with the X-shaped monoblock heating element, it becomes warm. This element offers exceptional heat conductivity. Each Convectair using natural convection heating therefore transfers as much heat possible to the greatest volume of air.
Thanks to a chimney effect, this warm air rises and is projected through the slanted grille slats toward the centre of the room. Air from the entire room follows in a completely silent, gentle flow. The result is a stable, even temperature. Equipped with precise electronic thermostats, natural convection heaters are the solution of choice for rooms where constant, even comfort is required.
Convectair natural convection heaters do not dry out the air in a room. Since they operate without a fan and the element never heats to red-hot, any particles that are naturally suspended in the air do not burn.
The result: the air stays healthy and the humidity rate remains balanced.
A consistent room temperature
A Convectair maintains the selected temperature without allowing major fluctuations. Thanks to the electronic thermostat, sensitive to within 1/10 °C (1/5 °F), the room’s occupants can go about their business for as long as they like, in a steadily warm environment without fiddling with the thermostat, oblivious to changes in the outside temperature.
Peace and quiet
Are you looking for noiseless heating? Whether the model you choose has the X-shaped convection element or a radiant heating surface, Convectair's convection and radiant heaters are designed to work in total silence. You won’t have to put up with the crackling of distorted metal, the bursts of noise caused by sudden temperature changes, the droning fan of a central-air system, or the sizzling of a dusty element.
A balanced heating plan
When you purchase or install a heater in a home, you should establish a heat distribution plan to evaluate the heating requirement of each room or area of the home. Installing heat sources at several strategic points prevents the overheating of one single unit as it tries to keep up with demand for the whole room. When the heaters are placed at the right spots around the room, the result is maximum comfort and complete safety.

Different degrees of heating comfort : Close the doors
When convection heaters on the same floor are not set to the same degree of heating comfort, the door to each room should be closed. In doing so, you’ll prevent overburdening a few units with the task of heating a cool air mass from neighbouring rooms.
Convectair's bathroom heaters are designed to withstand splashes.
All the fans (except the one of the Soprano) operate on a timer, so that the heater can’t be left turned on by mistake.
The bigger models feature a control panel that is easy to access but safely out of children’s reach. The smaller units and the convection heaters have a panel that can be made tamper-proof.
Last but not least, the Opera 12 and Opera 17 are equipped with an absence detector that gradually decreases the heating temperature when nobody is in the room. Also, the open-window function is activated, when a window opens, to prevent wasting energy.
The highest standards
Convectair heating units
meet Canadian and American safety standards
. In addition, their designs are based on the more stringent performance standards applied in Europe.
- 2 years against all defects
- 5 years on heating elements
Once the guarantee expires, the Convectair technical team is a reliable source of advice and service. Even 20 years after purchase, most Convectair unit can be repaired and refurbished.
