The three main electric heating options for replacing old storage heaters are Smart high-heat retention storage heaters, the ceramic core also known as clay core drystone and thermal fluid (oil field). There are many more options such as infrared. Greenvision offers a turn-key installation solution and is a national independent Which & EDF Energy trusted trader electric heating specialist. This means you will receive excellent customer service, value for money, and unbiased sound advice and we will recommend the best products for your circumstances as we are not tied to a specific product or manufacturer.
We believe knowledge is power, helps you make the right decisions, and saves time and money. It is worth speaking to us, particularly if you are thinking of selling or renting your property or a landlord, as the heating system you install could negatively or positively impact your energy performance certificate rating, which is required by law when selling or renting a property. That’s why we offer a free 10-minute phone heating consultation for homeowners, landlords and business owners.
About Electric Radiators
Whilst gas is currently available at cheaper rates than electricity, electric radiators can still work out cheaper to run than gas central heating or storage heaters because they are extremely energy efficient and offer precision heating control.
Electric radiators allow you to control the heating in each room of your house separately. With programming available on all of our radiators you can set up a heating schedule for each room individually to meet the heating needs of the room. If you temporarily don’t use a room, you can set this on a lower setting to come on less frequently. With full control over each electric radiator, you are able to slim down your heating bills
To heat your room effectively you will need to choose radiators with a high enough wattage to efficiently heat the space. To calculate the wattage call Greenvision on 0115 854 7498.
You will then need to choose a radiator or combination of radiators which add up to the required wattage. If your wattage calculation is on the borderline between two sizes we always recommend choosing the larger radiator. Under-specifying your heating will either leave you cold or will overwork your radiators, wasting energy and shortening their lifespans. Larger radiators will simply spend less time switched on, saving you money whilst maintaining comfortable temperatures.
Our electric radiators use fast-acting heat elements to warm rooms with a mixture of radiated and convected heat – working in just the same way as central heating radiators.
Electric radiators are much cheaper to install than gas central heating; they are also more reliable and require barely any maintenance. Electric radiators offer much more scope to increase the energy efficiency of your heating because they can take advantage of more and more sophisticated electronic heating control technology. Electric radiators work individually, with each radiator equipped with its own thermostat and programmable timer. This immediately gives electric radiators an advantage because they do not waste energy.
Gas central heating is one of the most popular heating systems in the country, used in the majority of homes across the UK. However, in the last few decades electric heating technology has developed at such a rate that energy efficient electric radiators now offer an economical alternative.
Innovative new thermal elements, fast and effective electrical components and state-of-the-art heating control features allow you to trim down your energy usage like never before – giving you the potential to significantly reduce your heating costs.
What are the different types of electric heaters?
Smart Storage Heaters
As the name implies, these are a “smart” version of the traditional storage heater. Whilst they work in broadly the same way, the clay or ceramic bricks are encased in a highly insulated compartment which allows the stored heat to be released at pre-set times and temperatures. This means smart storage heaters can still take advantage of Economy 7 tariffs but provide much more flexible usage.
There are many different types of oil-filled heaters including radiators and column heaters. Although filled with oil, they are electrically heated and don’t actually involve burning any oil. All Greenvision’s oil-filled radiators have thermostats, smart timers and controls. They use a mix of radiant and convected heat so are ideal in rooms where you need constant warmth.
Ceramic/ Clay Core Radiators
Unlike storage heaters, these clay core radiators can be used day or night. Fireclay heat plates in the centre of the radiator contain a low wattage heating element. When the element heats up it transfers heat to the fireclay and then in turn to the radiant surface of the radiator. All this makes the ceramic & clay core radiator highly efficient and controllable.
What are the different types of electric heaters?
Panel Convector Heaters
Panel convector heaters use standard rate electricity and provide fairly constant heat when switched on. They are 100% efficient at point of use and are ideal for rooms that only need heating for short periods, although in compact, well insulated properties they can be used as a complete heating system.
When sun rays reach an object they heat it from the inside, leaving it warm without heating the air around it. Infrared heating works the same way by directly heating walls, floors, & objects in a room – these objects then release that heat into the surrounding environment. Infrared heaters are the most energy efficient alternative to gas, oil and electric heating systems – perfect for reducing your fuel bills!
Low Surface Temperature Radiators
Low surface temperature radiators (LTS) are designed to comply with the NHS Guidelines. With a maximum surface temperature of 43°C. They are perfect for care homes, nursery schools and hospitals where a standard heater isn’t practical or safe and would reach a higher surface temperature.
