Electric Storage Heaters
New storage heaters are perfect for homes that can't have gas or air-source heat pumps fitted. Our new high-heat retention storage heaters will keep you warmer for longer. No more waiting on them to heat up overnight!
Why have Electric Storage Heaters installed?
How does it work?
Storage heaters heat up during the night time on an Economy 7 or 10 meter. This type of meter means that the electric that is drawn from the grid is cheaper as the electric demand isn't as high.
Throughout the morning and the rest of the day, the heat which is built up in the ceramic bricks of the storage heaters is released slowly.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can they be put in new locations around the home?
Yes- we are more than happy to put them in new locations. They will have to be wired into the wall, however.
What brand do you install?
We supply and install Dimplex Quantums. This brand of high-heat retention storage heater can be controlled individually. They work off an economy 7 or 10 tariff, however, they are also wired directly into the mains so that if you need extra heat, you can switch them on.
My storage heaters were installed on a grant already- is there anything else I can have done?
We will see if your home is eligible for solar panels. Even if your storage heaters weren't installed on a grant, with every installation of electric storage heaters, we will see if it's possible to add solar panels to the property. The combination of both working together can potentially save you a lot of extra money! To learn more, please see our page on solar panels.
