So much is said about electric heating running costs and so much is misleading marketing nonsense.
All electric radiators are 100% efficient, just ask any physics teacher. If you put 1 Kw of electricity into a heater you will get 1 Kw of heat out.
Reducing running costs is achieved by taking control of temperature, efficient delivery of the heat into the room and accurate programming.
So how efficient are electric radiators ?
The electric radiators that we install use the latest digital systems to control the temperature, making them accurate to 0.2°c.
Each radiator has its own thermostat each room of your home can be set to your required temperature.
They are filled with a special heat transfer fluid which ensures the aluminium body of the radiator heats quickly and evenly.
The radiator body has a system of internal fins which maximise the surface area, increasing natural convection and the radiant effect of the heater this is the most efficient way to deliver heat to your home.
Smart Electric Radiators – Take Control
The Avant DGi is the most modern smart electric radiator on the market and gives control of times and temperatures for each room of your home from anywhere in the world providing a system with the same functions as a ‘wet system’
Cheap ‘dry inertia’ heaters are said to be more efficient because they heat up quickly, but this means they also cool down quicker leading to fluctuating room temperature, increased running costs and reduced comfort levels.
Are you on the right electricity tariff ?
Picking the right tariff for your lifestyle is essential to achieve substantial savings on your energy bills.
For instance, a professional person working all day and returning home early evening may benefit from Economy 10 or 20/20 (where available), however a person who is at home all day would be advised to look at a standard rate tariff.
All of our electric radiators and towel rails are suitable to use on either Economy 7, 10, 20/20 or a standard rate electricity tariff
As part of a home heating installation we will provide you with a state of the art energy monitor absolutely FREE of charge helping you to view the entire electricity consumption of your property whilst also allowing you to keep an eye on your energy costs on a day to day basis.
How do the energy suppliers stack up ?
Why not take a look at your current energy supplier to find out more about the range of tariffs they have to offer, you may even be better off looking at another supplier who offers a cheaper tariff than the one you are on.
