Most UK homes that don’t have a boiler and radiators have electric storage heaters. Electric storage heating is more common in flats, in rented property, and in homes with no mains gas connection.
Electric storage heating is one of the most expensive heating options in the UK especially if the storage heaters are older.
If you have a system like this, you have several options for improvements:
- Fit a new, more controllable storage heater.
- Fit thermostats and controls to make your existing system more efficient.
- Consider making insulation and draught-proofing improvements.
- Replace your system with an efficient boiler system such as electric wet heating.
