Electrical heating is quick and simple to install and is therefore a popular option for many modern homes. There is no need to fit boilers, tanks and pipes; you just need an electrical power source. The radiators can also be fitted quickly with minimal disruption to your home. There are few different types of electrical heating you can choose from.
Electric Heaters – Oil Filled Radiators
These heaters have seen a massive growth in their popularity recently. KG Electrical have been working on many projects removing storage heaters and installing these electric oil filled radiators instead.
These heaters work off a normal plug socket electricity supply. They work by heating up the oil inside the heater, then this stays hot and dissipates into the room over the next few hours, even after the electricity has been turned off.
Each heater can have numerous programming modes – including timed, holiday, boost, advance, frost and more – which makes them an ideal and useful heating choice in homes. They also have a built in thermostat, so will automatically turn on/off when set temperatures are met.
Certain heaters also have Bluetooth/Wi-Fi settings, so you can control them from your smart device – very similar to some central heating systems.
These are cheaper to buy than the other options, but they do tend to be more expensive to run.
These will have programming modes and thermostats similar to oil filled radiators, however they work simply by heating an element and blowing out the heat. So, once the electricity has gone off, the heater and room will cool down rather quickly – meaning you need these heater on for longer periods of time.
