Electric Central Heating
You will find that most houses in the UK that don’t have radiators or boilers use electric storage heaters. This is most common in rented accommodation, flats or in a house that has no main gas connection.
It could be that you are looking to switch to electrical central heating to become more energy efficient. In traditional central heating systems, the water will be heated in a central boiler, and then this will be sent to radiators in each room of the house via pipes.
Unfortunately, this is not energy efficient as you could be sending heat where it doesn’t need to go. It also may be the case that you need to turn on the entire system rather than individual radiators which is also inefficient. Electric central heating systems tend not to have these disadvantages.
Unfortunately gas heating is actually one of the most costly forms of heating in terms of ongoing costs, particularly if you have ageing storage heaters which is why you need to make sure that they are regularly maintained, however electrical central heating does have many advantages that is attracting more people to opt for this.
It is also incredibly easy for us to install for you, and cheaper to maintain. You will also have none of the risk that is associated with having a boiler. There’s no risk of leaks, carbon monoxide issues – and you also won’t need to bleed your radiator. You will also find more control when it comes to personalising your heating, you can even have products that are operated by remote control.
All of which makes electrical central heating an increasingly popular choice. If you’d like to discuss this further, and receive a free, no obligation quote – contact us today!
