Advantages of an Electric Heating System3 min read
The fact is that in most cases when people are talking about central heating, they are actually referring to boilers, a gas meter and hot water running through pipes in their walls, floors and ceilings. However, when you begin to think about your central heating system as a solution for heating your entire housing, other options suddenly come to mind. Our advanced electric heating products include top of the range infrared heaters, conventional storage heaters and energy-efficient electric radiators. With our products, every single room and space in your home will have a heater that was custom built for its unique conditions. For instance, your bathroom will get a heated towel rail for extra convenience, and your patio will get a dedicated heater to make your outdoor meetings all the more comfortable, while your living room will benefit from a homely atmosphere thanks to one of our exceptional electric fires!
- Electric Heating is more Affordable and Easier to Install
Our products come in various sizes, which means that you’ll be able to find the perfect heating solution for all your rooms, and have your very own heating system that is customized for your unique lifestyle and budget. While a conventional heating system may force you to tear down walls in order to install pipes, which can be expensive and time-consuming, an electric heating system is non-invasive, cheap, fast and easy to install. All our electric heaters (with the exception of electric towel rails) can be installed by anyone within 10 to 20 minutes. All you need is a power source like a standard electric socket and you are good to go. If you are installing a wall-mounted electric radiator or panel heater, you can simply hang these appliances on the wall using brackets.
- It’s Low Maintenance and Doesn’t Require Annual Servicing
Another major benefit of having an electric heating system is the few maintenance requirements. As previously highlighted, installing electric heaters is extremely easy when compared to installing a traditional heating system. On top of this, a boiler has to be serviced every few months (or at least once every year) while your electric heating system requires no servicing whatsoever. Only in rare instances do electric heating systems require servicing and the problem is usually restricted to just a single heater. However, this is not the case with traditional heating systems because if something goes wrong, the situation could be disastrous considering all the water running through your walls. A faulty internal combustion element or defective boiler can pose a real threat due to carbon monoxide leakages that can lead to poisoning. When it comes to electric heaters, the worst that can happen is a faulty heater or radiator not warming up a room as expected, and you have to fix or replace it.
- It’s More Efficient and Gives You Control over Heat Levels for Each Room
An electric heating system is simple and easy to use. It gives you so many options when it comes to room heating control. An electric heating system includes a digital thermostat and timer that let you create a custom heating schedule that will meet the specific needs of your lifestyle while saving you money. The thermostat maintains your preferred temperature by turning the heater on and off, while the timer lets you create a custom heating plan. With this, you can programme your heaters to switch on and off at your convenience, thus saving you the time and effort you would need to do it yourself manually, especially if you have heaters and radiators all over your home.
