Floor-convectors with fans make recalescence and flow even more intensive, thus decreasing the uncomfortable cold radiation felt around large surface area windows and doors. Certain floor-convectors with fans are capable of operating as supplementary cooling devices.
This is similar to the standard floor-convector, supplemented with a fan used to circulate the room's air through the number of tiny louvres, increasing the transferred amount of heat to a multiple of standard radiators.
In the summer floor-convectors with fans can be used to temper the place, if a water-cooling (liquid-cooling) device provides the cold water (generally 7°C) required for cooling.
In case of flowing cold water, the floor-convector cools, while in case of warm water it heats, so both cooling (tempering) and heating may be accomplished with a single device.
- the same device that heats in the winter, can cool in the summer
- extremely fast reaction, fast recalescence
- even temperature
- aesthetic, the fact that a radiator is not required is not negligible from furnishing aspect
- needs electric mains
- high investment cost
- low fan noise at level 3
