What is Electric Heating?
More than ever before people are turning to electric central heating because of the technological and design advancements over the last few of years, making the heating systems more aesthetically appealing and energy efficient.
Electric heating systems are totally flexible, easy and inexpensive to install, and fully controllable. The technology allows you to split your home into heating zones and control each of the rooms or zones heating requirements individually.
Electric radiators are now designed to react quickly and accurately to changes in room temperature in order to ensure your comfort at all times and to reduce your energy consumption. Each electric radiator can be controlled and/or programmed independently, providing each room in your property with the required heat when needed.
What are the Benefits of Electric Central Heating?
Reduced Maintenance Costs
With a gas central heating system it is important to have regular maintenance and servicing carried out in order to keep a system in working order, which can become expensive. For privately rented and social rented properties it is a requirement to have annual safety inspections of gas systems, however, with electric heating systems this is not the case, saving you time and money.
Electric heating systems are very easy to install, keeping costs down. Complicated pipe-work is not required, all we have to do is connect each heater to the electrical circuit in your property.
As electric heaters can act as stand alone units or form part of a system, additions or upgrades are very easy to install.
Flexible & Versatile
Electric heating doesn’t require a flue or pipe-work to be installed, so there are no restrictions on their layout or the design of your property and no regulatory or planning problems that can be associated with the positioning of flues. Electric heaters can also be installed virtually anywhere in the room, again lending themselves to freedom of design.
Comfort & Control
Electric heating systems come with thermostatic controls that ensure it can react quickly and easily to sudden changes in temperature in order to maintain a comfortable level of warmth in your home as heating output can be quickly increased or reduced where necessary.
All of our heaters come with a 10 year manufacturer's warranty on parts and a 20 year workmanship guarantee, so you can rest assured that your new heaters have the durability to last for years to come.
With electric heating systems you can easily heat specific rooms, generally the rooms you spend most time in, instead of heating the entire home when the family is gathered in one room.
At the point of use electric heating is 100% efficient as all of the electricity is converted into heat. With a gas boiler there is significant waste of energy via the flue, which is money being thrown away.
With electric heating systems there is no risk of explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning, both of which are a concern with gas central heating systems.
