Budget Electric Radiators
You can calculate what size radiators you need to heat your room using our radiator wattage calculator. The maximum power output of each of our radiators is measured by its wattage. The calculator will work out what total wattage will be required to heat your room effectively and efficiently. You will then need to choose radiators which add up to or exceed the required wattage.
It is very important that you do not try and heat your room with smaller radiators than recommended. Under-specifying your heating will not save you money in the long run because your radiators will have to work very hard to maintain comfort temperatures, decreasing their energy efficiency and driving up your heating bills.
The running costs of your electric radiators will depend on a number of factors: the terms of your electricity tariff, the quality of your insulation, the location of your property, and the amount you use your radiators, to name a few. Whilst electricity can be more expensive than gas, most electric radiators come with sophisticated programming facilities which give you unprecedented control over your heating. Precision thermostats and programmable timers allow you to create personalised heating schedules for every room in your house, so you’ll only ever pay for heating that you need. The amount of energy you can save with precision heating control can make electric radiators cheaper to run than gas central heating – especially if you live in a busy home with lots of scope to make your energy usage smarter.
When you choose a budget electric radiator, you are not necessarily compromising on efficiency. The Cointra Apolo radiator range, for example, does not sport the elegant contemporary design of more expensive designer electric radiators but it still offers 24/7 programmable control, a highly accurate thermostat and innovative thermal fluid heating technology.
Electric radiators, once seen as wasteful, expensive and difficult to control, are today some of the most efficient heating solutions on the planet. Gone are the days when electric heating meant bulky and inefficient storage heaters. As the technology has advanced, electric central heating systems have grown in their effectiveness and popularity. Years of innovation have developed top-of- the-range heat generation technology and unparalleled levels of controllability – so that today electric radiators can truly be described as economical heaters that can help customers save energy and lower their heating bills.
Panel heaters are cheaper to purchase than electric radiators but typically cost more to run; this means they will only be the most economical choice for rooms which you use less often, such as spare rooms or home offices.
Panel heaters differ from electric radiators by distributing heat purely through convection – warming the air as it circulates around the room. This is less efficient than heating with a balance of radiated and convected heat, as electric radiators do, because warm air can be easily lost from the room through draughts or opened doors. Panel heaters also use unenclosed heating elements which can burn the air. This may lead to wall blackening and can exacerbate allergies. Electric radiators have fully enclosed heating elements so they cannot cause wall blackening. Budget electric radiators are usually the best choice if you want an economical heating solution for the rooms you use regularly.
However, panel heaters can be ideal as a top up heater or primary source of heat for the rooms you use less often. Our Haverland Lodel Panel Radiators combine easy to manufacture panel heater technology with advanced digital control facilities, so you can make your purchase for less whilst cutting down the running costs with a precision thermostat and programmer.
To make the most of the energy saving potential of electric radiators we always recommend choosing radiators with programming facilities. To truly cut down your heating to the areas and times where you need it, a highly accurate thermostat, a digital programmer and the ability to zone your heating room by room give you the control you need to reduce your heating bills to a minimum. The money savings you will make on your heating bills will quickly eclipse the additional cost of buying a programmable radiator. Our extensive range of economical heaters includes something for everyone, guaranteeing comfort and control on even the tightest of budgets.
As consumers grow increasingly frustrated with rising gas bills and expensive plumbing work, more and more people are switching to electric heating as a clean, cost-effective, fully customisable heating solution that can put you back in control of your heating costs.
Whilst gas central heating is still the most common form of household heating in the UK, unpredictable prices and increasing costs are now persuading many people to make the switch to controllable budget electric radiators. Unlike conventional central heating systems, electric radiators do not waste energy losing heat through pipes. They can also be controlled independently so you don’t have to turn the whole system on to operate a single radiator, and you can make the most of precision electronic programming controls. It is also much easier and cheaper to install electric radiators, making them a popular retro-fitting option in conservatories and houses which have previously used storage heaters.
Electric radiators are one of the few heating solutions that can be installed for free. DIY compatible and maintenance free, electric radiators can make you major savings on plumbers’ bills, gasman visits and repair works. Our radiators are easy to install with even the most basic DIY knowledge – everything you need to get started is provided in the box.
