Storage Heaters Explained

A typical storage heater is wall-mounted and looks a bit like a radiator. It works by drawing electricity over the course of a few hours at night, and storing it as heat in a ‘bank’ of clay or ceramic bricks to use the following day. As a consequence, storage heaters work best if the household is on an Economy 7 tariff.

What is the Economy 7 Plan?

Economy 7 is an energy plan, officially known as a ‘differential tariff’, that can help you pay less for your electricity.

Basically, you pay normal prices during the day, but cheaper rates for seven hours during the night.

What are the advantages of Storage Heaters?

  • Cheaper to run compared with other types of electrical heating that operate during peak hours
  • Many of the modern versions come with a built-in thermostat. This allows them to release heat as needed, depending on the external temperature
  • Less energy used to overheat your house when it doesn’t need it, and should help you save on your bills
  • Storage heaters are exceptionally quiet, even those that use a fan.
  • They are easy to install and can be situated anywhere that electricity can be wired, and a wall bracket mounted
