Electric Radiators FAQs

They are not only greener, but they are also more efficient. They can be a great choice for those who want to save money on their heating bills. Especially with rising gas prices, electric radiators are time after time working out cheaper to run than gas central heating radiators, and when you take into account that you can run them to room specific areas where you need it is a big bonus too.

Some people think that electric heating is expensive to run because of the electricity bill, but this is not true. In fact, they are much cheaper to run than traditional ones. The main reason behind this. is that the electricity bill goes up when you turn on your thermostat and it will stay on until you turn it off. They do not have a thermostat, so they only use power when they need it. Essentially you can turn it on and off in a moment's notice so you can heat your home when you need it, giving you much more control over your overall energy usage.

Also, they are a much more cost effective and greener alternative to traditional radiators as they use electricity to heat a home or project rather than natural gas, and because there is 0% heat loss, which with traditional heating may get lost due to pipes or your boiler, also make it cheaper to run.

Smart electric radiators are designed to work with an app on your smartphone or tablet to help you spend less time reading manuals, or scheduling maintenance. They automatically adjust their settings to keep your home at your chosen temperature and can be controlled from anywhere in the world when connected to Wi-Fi.

Some of our smart radiators have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi options to control them, creating easy use to turn them on and off so you can be sure you’re saving money on your heating. One of the biggest benefits of a smart radiator is that in the colder months, you can come home to a warm and toasty home. Some of our smart electric radiators have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi options to control them, creating easy use to turn them on and off so you can be sure you’re saving money on your heating. One of the biggest benefits of a smart radiator is that in the colder months, you can come home to a warm and toasty home.

There are many different advantages associated with installing electric radiators, to deal with your house needs. The top five benefits of are:

  • They efficiently retain heat, keeping every room in your home warm, even if a window is open. This means that the heat being transferred is unaffected by external factors that may otherwise have hindered warmth if another form of heating were to be utilised.
  • Unlike other heating systems and appliances, there is no energy lost while burning fuel or during the transportation of hot water around the house.
  • They offer greater control, with features such as heat-zoning, representative thermostats and highly accurate digital controls. These aspects make these heaters a favourite among customers who like to schedule the heating of their home with the use of thermostats.
  • These appliances are usually low maintenance, saving you from expensive extras such as plumbing in the long run without using much power.
  • Unlike some other systems, they don’t emit any dangerous gasses such as carbon monoxide and don't use fossil fuels, unlike oil filled heating options. They offer a unique solution to traditional radiators and can be powered with renewable energy. Meaning you don't have to deal with rising gas prices and energy costs.
  • Of course, the benefits of radiators aren’t just practical. There are plenty of aesthetic benefits, too. They add style to any space and are ideal if you are looking for something slimline, contemporary or even traditional options.

    The bathroom, kitchen and dining rooms are the types of rooms with the best walls where electric radiators are most commonly installed. This is because these radiators are installed in rooms that can be heated at different times to other rooms within a property, If you are turning on your bathroom radiators, you are probably not using the kitchen radiators, so connecting them via a central system is a waste of energy.

    Modern electric radiators, on the other hand, are perfect for flexible heating solutions, allowing different rooms to be heated to different temperatures. These radiators can be turned on and off when necessary, making them easy-to-use in the home and independent of the heating systems.

    Most electric radiators are suitable for an easy installation, simply screwing into a wall, although a 13amp socket/outlet will be needed nearby. If you need a professional to install an electric radiator then we would suggest calling a qualified electrician. This will save you money on installation as it will be cheaper than having a plumber modify or extend pipework to install.

    The main difference between panel heaters and electric radiators is that even electric panel heaters and electric heaters produce heat through convection, typically using hot elements and a fan to blow hot air around the space. However, the latter uses a combination of radiated and convective heat.

    Electric Radiators are eco-friendly. They are a great solution for the eco-conscious. This is because they are carbon neutral, even on use, they don’t produce pollutants that are related to gas central heating.

    Even if you’re not entirely carbon free (using fossil fuels to power your home) an electric radiator brings down your footprint massively, and as a paradigm shift is happening towards green energy and renewables, we know that this is only going to get better.
