The use of the deprecated IfcElectricHeaterType is not allowed (as it will not be supported in the next IFC4 release).
* electric space heaters shall be represented by IfcFlowTerminal (for individual occurrences) and IfcSpaceHeaterType (for common type information).
The following applies to all space heater (independent of source of energy supply):
* the individual occurrence is of type: IfcFlowTerminal
* the common type information is of type: IfcSpaceHeaterType
This supersedes the documentation in IFC2x3, where electric space heaters occurrences
are defined as IfcFlowTerminal and non-electrical as IfcEnergyConversionDevice and it is in line
with the improved definition in IFC4.
