Radiant heaters for changing tables – reasonable or unnecessary?

Parents-to-be have to think about reasonable equipment for their child’s room again and again. The market is flown with helpful accessories and a number of useless things. At the latest when it comes to buying a changing table, parents think of adding a radiant heater to it.

The functionality is nothing else to a standard radiant heater, which are available for terraces or internal spaces. Form and function are adapted to the requirements in your baby’s room. Especially reer offers models which can be mounted to the wall or as floor-mounted appliance. They are swiveling and can be adjusted in inclination, so that warmth can be directed to the right point. Floor-mounted appliances such as the changing table radiant heater with stand and night light by reer, often offer the possibility to mount it to the wall. If your child is out of the age of changing, you can also use this device as radiant heater for the terrace.

Safety first – also in your child’s room

The popular devices by reer do not only fulfill the most current safety standards for electrical devices, but they are also tested for a DIN norm for medical devices. They are available with an automatic switch-off function as additional safety. A grid in front of the heater coil prevents hot splinters from falling down in case it breaks. Even if the offered devices correspond to the highest safety requirements, children should never be left unattended on/at the changing table. Especially if you have a floor-mounted device, you have to look out for a safe and fixed stand. Soft soils or edges of the carpet are inappropriate. Older siblings and pets could also accidentally knock over the radiant heater, which is why one which can be mounted to the wall is definitely better. Reer does also offer models which switch off automatically once they fall over. When children are able to sit, you definitely have to look out for the heater being out of reach. Otherwise the device could also be turned on by accident. Anyway, it is always important to check out the manual for all devices to be aware of the danger occurring and for a correct installation. The position of a radiant heater is also important.

Fast, pleasant warmth with just the push of a button

Bigger changes in temperature not only support colds, they can also be alarming and frightening for your baby. The advantage of a radiant heater thus is that it heats up within a few seconds. That is especially important after a bath or changing during winter. A baby’s room does not have to be heated all day. A temperature between 16-18° is recommended at night. That is too cold for dressing a baby. A radiant heater is also suitable for things like that.
