Very useful but very often demonized, electric stoves are always at the center of debates: there are those who find them indispensable and those who prefer to do without them, perhaps because they have mistakenly entrusted themselves to one of the false myths that circulate about them.
In this article we will dismantle one by one the false myths that circulate about electric stoves, in order to clarify why they are to be considered not entirely correct information. They consume a lot
Let’s start with the myth that electric stoves consume a lot: this may be true for some models, perhaps older and obsolete ones, or if you make an incorrect use of the stove (for example, you want to heat a large room with a heater) . The latest generation electric stoves all aim to have a very high energy efficiency. The types on which you must turn your attention are certainly the latest generation convectors and infrared panel radiators . Thanks to their internal characteristics, they allow the transmission of a large amount of energy with a decidedly reduced electricity consumption. From this point of view , the De Longhi electric stovesthey offer a wide range of models to choose from and you can hardly go wrong, since the goal of this great brand has always been to create electric stoves with very low energy consumption. They are noisy
This statement can be considered in part true, as a particular type of electric stoves, ie fan heaters, use a fan to throw out the air and it is this that can be noisy. But if you are making this type of consideration, surely you are making a completely wrong use: fan heaters are created to give off heat immediately after being turned on and are intended for discontinuous use. To give a practical example of what has been said, you can think of the use that is usually made of the heater, when you turn it on in the bathroom a few minutes before the shower to find the warm room. Therefore, fan heaters are in no case suitable for continuous use: for this purpose, always choose an electric oil stove.. The latter not only allows you to heat the room with less energy expenditure, but also maintains the heat even after it has been turned off, so that a warm warmth remains in the room for a very long time. The heat does not persist
We have dispelled this myth in the last lines of the previous paragraph: if you find yourself with a stove that just turned off does not keep the heat in the room and this creates discomfort, unfortunately you have chosen the wrong type of stove for your needs. Fan stoves, for example, have an electrical resistance inside that has a metal wire: once the stove is switched off, this wire cools down very quickly and in no way guarantees that the warmth will remain for a long time. As previously mentioned, if you need to keep the room warm even after turning off the switch on your stove, bet everything on an oil model , even better if it is of the latest generation. The halogen stove hurts
A false belief that has spread about halogen stoves is that they are dangerous for our health. This myth is completely to be dispelled: first of all, because if they really constituted a danger to our safety, this kind of stoves would certainly not be on the market but would be immediately withdrawn. But what these false myths consist of
According to some, the halogen stove is harmful to the eyes as it can emit a very intense light. This danger would only occur if you got very close to the stove with your eyes open. Otherwise, the annoyance is the same as looking at a light bulb.
Finally, speaking of false myths, find out in this article if the flue-free pellet stove really works and if pellet stoves are an eco-sustainable choice!
