One thing that's brilliant with electric radiators is that no heat is wasted. Unlike central heating, 100% of the electricity used goes straight to the radiator and then straight into warming your space.
Though gas is cheaper to run than electric, central heating radiators can’t run separately like electric radiators can. For example; With central heating all your radiators are heated by using the boiler, unless they are turned off by the valve. Whereas with electric radiators you simply switch on that specific radiator by the plug it's connected to.
This can actually save money, as it means you don't have to heat your whole space, you can just focus on heating the room you're using instead.
Electric radiators also have a low set up cost, as they don’t require being installed into the plumbing and pipes. So you don’t have to worry about labour costs.
Another benefit of electric radiators is that you don’t have to replace all your central heating radiators with electric ones. If you think an electric radiator would work better in a certain room then you can simply install one. Many electric radiators can also come with timers or remotes to easily set times you’d like your radiators to heat your space, thus in turn, helping you keep the costs down.
But before you decide on an electric radiator or a central heating radiator, it's best to know the BTU required for your space. You can use our free btu calculator to work out the heat output you need easily.
