Replace old night storage radiators with modern, energy efficient German Electric Radiators
About night storage heating
In days gone by, night storage heating was considered the most economical way to heat a home, due to storage radiator prices, installation costs and low maintenance.
One of the major downsides to night storage heaters linked into an economy 7 tariff is – heat required through the day and evening is often very expensive. This is because the economy 7 tariff is normally designed to offer cheap electricity rates through the night alongside a higher rate during the day (up to 50% more than a standard none-economy-7 tariff)
Night storage system also drys out the air as it is on for over 14 hours a day (includes 7 hrs charging overnight) and because there is no convection i.e. no circulation of air. People can therefore experience sinus problems, drying of airways and bronchial irritation particularly troublesome for Asthma sufferers.
Electric heating today
Most people today want warmth on tap, rather than stored heat that is often dispersed when it’s not really needed.
This has led our heating engineers to search throughout Europe for modern day solutions to an age old problem – keeping warm without wasting costly electricity.
It didn’t take long to conclude that Germany have become one of the leading innovators in the field of home heating, innovation led by no such thing as economy 7 tariffs. Radiators in Germany have to be built around efficiency and running costs (energy is expensive in Germany as it is throughout Europe)
Another major leap forward is understanding that correct radiator sizing improves the time it takes to heat a room and the quicker this is achieved, the less electricity is used – saving money and energy in the process.
And finally, the emergence of smartphone and tablet technology is being used to control heating remotely, allowing people the flexibility of controlling their heating, wherever they are.
