Staying warm, reducing energy consumption and utilising a safe form of heat are all part of gearing up for a comfortable winter.

The micathermic range of panel heaters, available from Omega Appliances , includes four models.

A relatively new form of heating technology, a micathermic element reaches full heat in roughly 60 seconds, thereby using less energy to ‘warm-up’ the appliance and start distributing heat to the four corners of the room.

Design features of the micathermic panel heaters include sleek unobtrusive styling, the option of freestanding or wall hung installation (to conserve even more space), castors for easy manoeuvrability and LCD display with remote control (on some models).

Safety and health are also key features of this micathermic panel heaters range, with each model featuring a safety tilt switch and thermal cut-out sensors, IP24 compliance for use in wet areas such as kitchen and bathroom, and full approval for asthmatics and those with respiratory ailments.

The OPM24M and OPM24E are very similar, with both being 2400 watt models in white, with the latter model featuring a dark grey grille. The OPM24E also has a 24 hour timer with pre-set switch-off ability plus an LCD display with remote control. 

Each micathermic panel heater carries a two year in-home warranty on parts and labour.

The Omega Appliances range of domestic heaters is available nationally from most major electrical retailers throughout Australia.
