As we move into the month of August with travel restrictions still in place, many families will be choosing to spend the last bit of summer more locally at their holiday homes. Spending this much time in your second home might also give you some inspiration to make improvements before the winter months move in, like upgrading to electric central heating, to ensure your holiday home is safe and cost-effective.
Many of our customers have chosen German manufactured ELKAtherm as their electric central heating system. Here we’ll discuss what makes this heating system so effective for holiday homes.
It’s incredibly energy efficient
ELKAtherm electric radiators don’t lose any electricity in the process of heating and can help you save money on your energy bills.
Their unique design means that you can heat a whole room using very little electricity. Unlike a combination boiler, electric radiators are individually controlled so you can choose which rooms you’d like to heat.
You can control your heat remotely
Holiday homes left unattended for more than 30 days must be kept at a minimum temperature for insurance purposes. One of the biggest advantages of choosing ELKAtherm is that you can control how you heat your second home without being there, including setting up a heating programme to keep your home safe and warm when you’re not there.
Our easy to use HeatApp lets you control the heating of each room. This is a great option for those cold winter months when you want to protect your holiday home but can’t get to it. This also means that you can start to warm your holiday home so that when you arrive it’s cosy and comfortable.
Zero maintenance heating
You want to enjoy your holiday home without having to worry about maintaining your heating systems. Wet systems require annual boiler servicing, which can cost an upwards of £100. Combi boiler radiators also require regular bleeding to maintain their efficiency and reduce cold spots.
Choosing an electric heating system like ELKAtherm means you’ll have zero maintenance around your heating.
Safe heating option for your holiday home
The last thing you want is to worry about the safety of your holiday home. Choosing a secure heating option, like ELKAtherm electric central heating, means gaining the peace of mind of knowing that your home will be safe when you’re away, as you’ll never need to worry about potential leaks or fires.
These are just some of the reasons why electric central heating is the best for heating your holiday home. Call us on 0800 270 7736 or fill in the form on the side of this page to speak to a specialist today about your heating requirements.
