    Rointe Reviews 7th Mar 17 at 10:14 AM
    Hi All,
    I am about to remove the costly panel heaters in my home!
    I cannot get gas unfortunately. I was looking into options in terms of easy instillation and the option to program the heaters, and of course the cost of running the things.
    Has anyone had experience with these heaters?

    I am actually an Electrical Fitter, Every single job I have done the customer has been happy with the outlay, everything has been left clean and tidy and they are happy with the radiators, they are easy to use. We’ve had a few phone calls where the customer said it has made a difference.. so a lot of happy people..

    I had a great experience with mine, I couldn't get gas heating where my house is, so I installed Rointe radiators for every room. I initially thought the cost was going to be very expensive but as it turns out its a actually quite cheap to run these.
    I was checking the internet a lot to see various reviews also..
    best of luck with your choice

    I could go into details about how all electrical heaters cost the same to run ... and how you can only make savings by using cheaper off-peak rates ... but if these new posters all want to use electricity rather than gas to warm up their tins of Spam, I think I'll leave them to it.
    I may not know much about art, but I know what I like.

    Seriously, do your homework. You are planning to rip out something you have already deemed as unfit, and replace it with exactly the same thing you just ripped out.

    Not very MSE.

    1kwh from a Rointe heater costs the same as 1kwh from a panel heater, oil filled radiator, fan heater or even 1 bar electric fire.

    It's entirely up to you but you will not save money unless you turn them down, nor will you be any warmer unless you turn them up.

    A Rointe heater is basically a liquid filled radiator, basically it's a magic liquid rather than just oil which a £50 Argos radiator contains - it's not a storage heater so still uses peak rate leccy

    Be very very wary of high pressure salesmen (or women),shiny brochures, dodgy installers, dodgy electrictians or promises of saving lots of money.

    We unfortunately have these heaters fitted in our house they replaced a parkray solid fuel system
    We are in the 3rd year of using these rubbish heaters
    They are extremely expensive to run
    To Program the heaters you need a degree in computers
    We have 2 heaters that are rusting (evidence can be provided) the towel rail and the heater near the back door also the control panel has water damage.
    Rointe rep visited and sain the heaters are all in good condition told him about the above and no mention of that in his report.
    Trying to get my council to remove these horrable heaters and replace with economy 7.
    Having these heaters installed was the worst mistake ever
    Wish we still had the solid fuel system.
