Heating Elements

Various kinds of heating equipment won’t be what they are without one essential component: heating elements. Heating elements, in a nutshell, are the components in heaters that convert electricity into heat. These elements have enough electrical resistance that the flow of electricity heats them up. A wide variety of heaters rely on these heating elements, as do other appliances, such as toasters, ovens, water heaters, and more.

These elements come in a variety of materials, including metal alloys like nichrome (a nickel and chromium alloy). Different types of heaters use different kinds of heating elements, and some use other kinds of heat sources. However, many heaters, especially newer models, are reliant on electric heating elements.
