It can be difficult to know where to begin with electric heating – there are so many different types, it’s tricky to know where to begin. And that’s before you even think about whether or not it can be mounted on your wall, its economic efficiency or its size and capacity.

Let’s look at some of the different styles of electric heater that we provide at North East Heating Solutions. We’ll discuss some of our most common sizes and electric heater types, and explain how they can be customised to fit every room in your house. We can help you keep your home warm at a minimal cost this winter.

The Different Types of Electric Heater

We’re not going to bore you with a science lesson on all the different types of electric heaters. Instead, we’re going to talk you through a few of the most popular types of electric heaters, and explain why you might benefit more from one than the other.

Spot heaters are a common type of electric heater and as the name suggests, they focus on heating a specific area of a room rather than the whole room. When powered up, they quickly heat an area and are quickly switched off. They’re almost constantly drawing power from the mains, so although they can be cheap to purchase, they’re very expensive to run.

Storage heaters are another form of electric heaters which use very dated technology. Typically, storage heaters will draw eye-watering amounts of power at night and store it behind the casing. During the day, that heat will slowly be released, and the process will begin again overnight. These heaters can’t be switched on or off as required, and are some of the most inefficient electric heaters on the market.

Electric radiators, on the other hand, are clean, efficient and easily maintained electric heaters. These radiators are great value for money and easy to install as well. They supply your home with a strong, responsive heat source and the heat can be controlled as you please. We supply German Elkatherm electric heating radiators for comfort that comes with minimal running costs. Our Eklatherm products come with an astonishing 25-year guarantee and are 100% safe.

Rooms You May Want to Heat

Our German electrics are suitable for just about every room in your home – and we mean that. Many people choose to use spot heaters and gas heaters in their conservatories because they don’t think electric radiators can heat the whole room. This is a common misconception. Our electric radiators will comfortably heat your whole room and keep your electricity bill low.

Smaller spaces like bathrooms and hallways will also benefit from electric radiators. You have full control of the heat they provide, and if those areas are too warm, it’s easy to reduce the emitted heat.

Large spaces like living rooms, bedrooms and kitchen or dining areas will all be provided with a comfortable, far-reaching heat when you install electric heaters. When you’re heating large spaces like this, electric heaters are also the most economically efficient way to heat the room.
