In a typical UK household, well over half the money spent on fuel bills goes towards providing heating and hot water.
In these times of ever increasing fuel costs, having an efficient and cost-effective heating system is absolutely vital – and it’s one of the main steps you can take to reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
Most homes in the UK that don’t have a ‘wet system’ with a boiler and radiators have electric storage heaters. These heat up overnight using cheaper off-peak electricity, and then give out the heat during the day. Electric storage heating is more common in flats, in rented property, and in homes with no mains gas connection.
In the words of the Energy Saving Trust “Electric storage heating is one of the most expensive heating options in the UK, and it also emits more carbon dioxide than most. It is also harder to control electric storage heaters than radiators, especially with older systems.”
For many years, electric heating has been seen as the last resort for homeowners and specifiers alike. It was seen as expensive, uncontrollable and, more often than not, very ugly! Thanks to companies like Intelli Heat this preconception is finally changing. The advanced electric heating systems offer a cost effective – and incredibly attractive – alternative to ‘traditional’ storage heating.
It really is time to consider upgrading these antiquated systems and IntelliHeat’s ranges of energy efficient electric central heating systems are the perfect choice – especially when there is no mains gas to the property.
With state-of-the-art controls and various styles of radiators to choose from, IntelliHeat’s systems are ideal for all end users, for Housing Associations and Property Developers alike. They allow the programming of individual radiators in individual rooms to be set so that the heating given is at a time and in the place where it is needed. Gone are the days when an entire system was turned on and off at the same time. Finally here is a system that means the heating works around the lifestyle of the occupants and not the other way round.
