Tansun – 2kW Sorrento SOR 220IP Low Glare, Weatherproof Wall Mounted Patio Heater

Heating Area

heatcoverage2kwsorrento

The 2kW version of the Sorrento offers up to 11sqm of heat – this is just above average for a wall mounted, low-glare infrared heater. 

Element Life & Heating Type

Although we searched high and low, we were unable to find any life-span estimate on these elements. Traditionally quartz halogen elements will come with a 5,000-7,000 hour life-span and we would expect these to last about the same.

Offbrand replacements can be found from £19.99 for a ruby lamp or £39.99 for a gold covered element.

Power Settings & Installation Specifics

These heaters are adjustable, the caveat being you will need to purchase a separate remote and wireless receiver(s) to utilise the 50%/75%/100% settings.

The 2kW wireless receivers can be found for ~£100 and the 6kW receiver for approximately £140. Remotes costing approximately £40-50.

Remotes can control up to 6 zones in unison. Ideal for large commercial installations.

Each patio heater is supplied with a 3-metre long power cord and 3-pin British standard plug.

PROS
  • Weatherproof (IP24)
  • Modular System For Installing Multiple Heaters
  • Affordable Replacement Elements
  • Wall Mounted or Ceiling Mounted
  • 2-Year Manufacturers Warranty
CONS
  • Additional Cost For Remote & Receivers
  • Remote & Receivers are Needed to Modify Heat Settings

The versitility of these heaters is fantastic. The modular feature makes heating large areas easy and the optional wireless receivers and remote makes this a scalable heating system. Great for airports, concert halls and so much more.

They can also be installed in pub gardens, or restaurants and bistros etc.

Our only real complaint with this heater is the additional outlay required for the remote and receivers. This can add a fair amount to your initial purchase price, but the functionality it offers is worth the investment.

Prices range from £140-£220 for this model. If you can find it cheaper elsewhere, then you’re getting a great deal.
