Since there are still a lot of questions when deciding to buy a panel radiator, we decided to give you a quick answer to the 12 most frequently asked questions and thus help you decide.
- Are panel heaters flammable?
Treadmill plate heaters are completely safe if used properly in accordance with the instructions for use. Thanks to the aluminum safety heating element and the relatively low surface temperature, you can safely leave it even without supervision. All Mill products are CE certified, which means they have been tested and approved under strict European requirements and directives.
- Which panel heater is the best?
Mill WiFi panel heaters have been rated in Google Play and the App Store as the best and most user-friendly panel heaters on the market. In addition, the Mill app has been rated as the most popular and most used smart heating app! With Mill WiFi panel heaters, customers have complete control over heating temperature and electricity consumption and can deliver comfortable temperatures, while saving both the wallet and the environment from unnecessary electricity consumption.
- What is electricity consumption and what are the costs associated with it?
The energy consumption of a MILL panel heater depends on the desired room heating temperature, the time spent heating the space and the power (W) of the panel heater. At MILL, they recommend 70-100 watts per square metre. The recommended power varies in W per square meter depending on the insulation of the house, ceiling height, number of windows, type of floor, etc. Thus, the electricity consumption of each home will vary according to these factors. On the other hand, MILL panel heaters themselves are 1:1 energy efficient due to convection technology. This means 100 watts of consumption = 100 watts of heating.

- Which panel heater should I choose?
Choose the MILL heater according to the needs and desires of your family. MILL panel heaters are available in two very elegant, minimalist designs, Invisible and Glass. With their smooth, rounded edges and gently curved front panel, Mill Invisible panel heaters blend seamlessly with your wall so they appear almost invisible. Glass panel heaters feature an exclusive, modern glass front that elegantly complements any modern home. Glass or steel plate heaters are available in 8 different powers, from 250W to 2000W No matter which model you choose, it is important that the total power of the heater is large enough depending on the size of the space to be provided. hot. You can also combine several smaller heaters to get the correct total power. Choose between a day/night program via WiFi to set the temperatures according to your daily routine. Heaters offer a manual timer setting feature to help save on daily energy consumption, while heaters with WiFi control allow this setting to be done remotely.
- Should I choose a WiFi-enabled panel heater or not?
If you have a home with an internet connection, we recommend investing in smart heaters with WiFi. With Mill WiFi panel heaters, you can fully control the heating temperature and electricity consumption via your smartphone. With the Mill app, you can program the temperatures to automatically adapt to the daily routine and control as many heaters and/or homes as you like. Whether you are on the road or at home, you have complete control over the temperature in the house and the electricity consumption. Mill WiFi panel heaters are not just another “smart home” device, as they will save you and the environment from unnecessary consumption of electricity, as they will give you flexibility and easy access to your heaters. If you already have a heater that you don’t need to replace, but you want to invest in a smart WiFi heater, you can easily make your own heater smart with the Mill WiFi socket. Mill WiFi Socket specializes in connecting heaters to WiFi and allows them to be used just like Mill WiFi panel heaters.
- Which is better: a panel heater or an oil radiator?
Mill plate heaters can provide a comfortable core temperature throughout your home and can be safely left unattended due to the safe aluminum heating element and relatively low surface temperature. If you have little free space on the wall or simply want a more flexible, mobile heating source that is also safe for unattended use, the Mill Oil Radiator is a great alternative. MILL oil-filled radiators are designed so that the heating element itself is not in direct contact with the air, which means that it does not have the possibility of burning dust or drying the air inside. This makes it a great choice for families with allergies or asthma.
- Where should we put the panel heater?
Mill recommends installing panel heaters under windows to prevent cold drafts on the floor. In a large room, it is better to place several small heaters around the room rather than one large heater to ensure an even and comfortable distribution of heat.
What distance should be between the panel heater and other nearby items, eg curtains or sofa?
All MILL heaters have the required minimum distance between the heater itself and other objects. As indicated in the instructions for use, the minimum distance is 5 cm on the sides and 10 cm in the front and above the heater.
- What is a cold draft?
Cold drafts indoors and/or drafts from windows can occur when cold window glass cools the surrounding air, which then falls and spreads on the floor. To avoid this, we recommend placing the MILL panel heater under the window itself to prevent cold air from spreading to the floor. Mill panel heaters are available in a variety of powers and sizes and offer custom panel heaters for low profile windows. These models can be identified by the letter “L” in the model name, for example IB1000theDN or GL850theWiFi3
- How do baseboard heaters work?
MILL panel heaters feature a large surface area and a modern aluminum X heating element in direct contact with the air. While providing fast and efficient heating, it also allows for an even distribution of heat rather than a single condensed area. This, in turn, creates a relatively low surface temperature on the heater itself and also does not dry out the surrounding air during heating. This is good for your home’s indoor climate and can provide a comfortable core temperature in your home.
- Which panel heater should be used in children’s rooms?
All MILL panel heaters can be safely left unattended due to the aluminum heating element and a relatively low surface temperature of 69°C. MILL plate heaters have overheating protection, which means they stop working automatically if you accidentally cover the heater. Mill Glass heaters are especially suitable for children’s rooms, as the front side of the tempered glass absorbs less heat than the heating element. This ensures the lowest possible surface temperature; MILL glass-panel heaters are available in 600W to 1200W power and reach a maximum surface temperature of 51°C (18 lower than other models). In addition, the back of the glass has a film that holds the glass together and does not allow the glass to break into dangerously sharp pieces in the event of an accident. The third generation MILL panel generators also feature a child safety lock function, which can be activated in the app or directly on the heater, thus preventing children from uncontrollably adjusting the heater temperature.
- How to clean a panel heater?
At MILL it is recommended to turn off the heater and wipe the outside surfaces with a slightly dampened non-woven cloth. If you have dust inside the heater, we recommend that you purchase a suitable compressed air container for cleaning electrical products. Do not open the heater plate by yourself, contact Mill HQ or your local distributor for support if necessary.
- What is the difference between a baseboard heater and a heat pump?
Heat pumps convert outdoor air into warm indoor air with a large compressor. They must be installed by an expert in a certain place in the house, which requires constant changes in the household. Although it is a reliable source of heating, it is an economical investment that will take time to recover from the savings in electricity consumption. In addition, heat pumps may find it difficult to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature when outdoor temperatures reach significant negative temperatures, and panel heaters are often needed as additional heating. MILL panel heaters are a more convenient and easier economical investment in the home. They provide fast and efficient heat, and their large surface area and safe x-aluminium heating element provide a comfortable core temperature in the home. Choose from a day/night program or a WiFi model with control via the app, which allows you to set temperatures according to your daily routine and save it in your wallet.
