STORAGE HEATING – A MODERN REPLACEMENT
Big & bulky
Cannot control them, too warm in the morning and insufficient heat in the evening
Don’t get hotter if its colder outside
Having to guess tomorrows weather, get it wrong and its either getting rid of heat you’ve paid for or having to use alternatives like fan heaters or oil filled radiators which are expensive to run
Room’s have cold spots because night storage heaters don’t radiate or convect heat
Use massive amounts of energy
Economy 7 tariffs are expensive during the day and its difficult to move suppliers for better tariffs

More about Night Storage Heaters
If you live with night storage heating, you may already be familiar with how it works. However, many people move into a property from having a different type of heating and don’t understand it.
Storage heating technology is outdated. Traditional night storage heaters take a lot of energy and rely on a long overnight charge. The Economy 7 tariff was created to try and make the running costs of these thirsty units more affordable. Energy from the night storage heater over night charge is released over the next day.
Traditional night storage heater designs are very bulky and don’t distribute their stored heat very effectively.
Over the years brands like Dimplex and Creda have made some improvements in design. Fan assisted models have been introduced to try and improve heat distribution, The boost function has also allowed additional heat input although this can be expensive on a premium day rate of Economy 7. Despite these improvements customers still find the lack of control and high energy consumption of these bulky units very frustrating.
More about German Elkatherm Electric Radiators
ELKAtherm electric radiators are a very popular upgrade from Night Storage Heaters The German engineered design overcomes
many of the previous frustrations of the older technology.
Slimline Storage Design
The ELKAtherm storage radiator has an element directly embedded into a 20mm ceramic core. The embedded element gives a great modern slimline design and also allows the radiator to heat up rapidly.
Energy Efficient Modern Storage Heating
Once the core has reached temperature the heater will warm the room distributing heat through a combination of natural convection and radiated heat. This comfortable well distributed heat leaves you with no cold spots and because the core stores heat it reduces the amount of energy required to maintain the room temperature, keeping you warmer for longer.
ELKAtherm gives you storage heating with control
Because ELKAtherm electric heating is much more responsive and doesn’t rely on an over night charge they can be controlled much more accurately. All our heaters are LOT 20 compliant and can be time and temperature controlled. Simply Set to the temperature you require start enjoying comfortable warmth. Better control also gives you better efficiency helping you save money on running costs.
