When you think of central heating you probably think of a gas-fired boiler and radiators, the traditional system we’re all familiar with.
Despite the rise in energy-efficient boilers, this form of heating can still be inefficient, difficult to programme and leave our house cold at all the wrong moments. There is an alternative more suited to modern living, electric central heating.
WHAT IS ELECTRIC CENTRAL HEATING?
Electric central heating can mean two things – firstly, replacing your old gas-powered boiler with an electricity-powered boiler, or secondly, replacing your old radiators with smart electric radiators. These simply plug in (or in some cases hard wired) around your house and heat your entire home without a boiler.
“Electric central heating can offer amazing savings over traditional central heating.”
NIGHT STORAGE HEATERS
Storage heaters work by storing heat generated by cheap night-time electricity and releasing this heat during the day.
Most storage heaters are wall-mounted and look a bit like radiators. They work by drawing electricity over the course of a few hours at night, and storing it as heat in a ‘bank’ of clay or ceramic bricks to use the following day. The advantage is that they can consume electricity at night, when it’s cheap, and release their heat many hours later.
