Safety, power-saving attributes fuel R&D in convection heaters line


New units are equipped with overheating protection systems and tip-over switches.




  • Safety enhancements: More makers are launching designs that shut off automatically after reaching a very high temperature or when the units are tipped over, thereby reducing the risk of fires and burn injuries. Several models are water-resistant, allowing use in bathrooms.
  • Energy efficiency: Manufacturers prefer PTC and aluminum heating elements as these take less time and power to warm up. Appliances equipped with turbo fan settings that enable rapid air circulation are also available.
  • Design innovations: New units feature space-saving slim bodies and are suitable for wall and floor use. For enhanced aesthetics, some have tempered-glass panels and come in gradient hues of orange, blue, green, pink and yellow. Traditionally, models are in white, black or gray.
  • Price projection: The yuan’s appreciation and rising production costs are anticipated to push up quotes by 3 to 5 percent in the months ahead.
  • Sales forecast: Suppliers expect between 5 and 10 percent drop in overseas revenue this year as orders decrease due to the weakening global economy.
