Why Use Electric Storage Heaters?
Electric Storage Heaters make use of lower cost electricity which is available during night on economy tariff. Electrical energy is is used to heat-up ceramic bricks within a storage heater at a lower cost overnight. This stores the heat and gradually releases it throughout the next day. This type of heaters is typically seen as more efficient alternative to Gas Central Heating. Storage heaters are considered more efficient as they can take advantage of lower energy costs. Electric Storage Heaters do give off heat throughout the day though, so depending on your living habits, may not be the most efficient for you.

Meaning, units placed in separate areas does not have to be on similar setting. This aid you control if which room are heated according to their use of that moment. In addition, you can also have different radiators in one room at diverse heat output to establish warm distribution that suits your needs. Greater control usually means that you only use energy that is badly needed. This can be a great advantage on your part since you no longer need pay high electric bills.
