Identification and Background ¶
The Royal Heat RS-100 was manufactured in Taiwan in 1989. It works by flowing electric current through a resistive coil and converting it into heat energy. The heating elements inside the heater are called the coils which contain many layers of metal (a conductor) wound around a core.
The Royal Heat RS-100 functions as a fan heater. It transfers heat from the device to the surrounding area by using an electric fan.
To differentiate the Royal Heat RS-100 from other space heaters, look for the following features. On the front, the RS-100 has four rectangular resistors with a metal net cover, a dial-switch with three positions (Heat-Off-Fan), and a dial to adjust the power. On the back, a removable filter hides the fan inside. On the bottom of the heater, you will find the identification plate and it contains the model number (RS-100), power input and output, and the serial number.
