Storage Heaters – The ‘Dodos’ of the Heating World

And why Electric Radiators are THE Future

Old storage heaters used to be the only practical solution for energy-conscious homeowners and can easily be mistaken for an economic way of heating your home.

Traditional storage heaters are designed to run on an Economy 7 or Economy 10 electrical tariff, which grant you 7 or 10 hours of off-peak electricity at a lower rate than standard, usually through the night. Your storage heater will then emit the heat it has stored through the remainder of the day, until it runs out completely.

There are three main problems, however:

  1. Costs – your electrical day rate, on an Economy 7 or Economy 10 tariff will be significantly higher than any standard rate, meaning all your other electrical appliances in the home will be costing you a lot more to run.
  2. Control – storage heaters have no thermostats, timers or controls that allow you to manage how and when the heat is distributed into your room.
  3. Leakage – storage heaters begin to ‘leak’ heat immediately and will lose most of their stored heat over a 12-hour period.

Storage heaters are, therefore, not the efficient and reliable answer for energy-conscious homeowners. Instead, they will very likely end up like the Dodo, as an exhibit in a museum.
