What kind of storage heater will be best for my home?1
The beauty of electric heating systems is that you’ve got the option to mix and match your heaters as you please. You’re not restricted to having just one type throughout the house – you can have a combination storage heater in the living room where comfort is a priority, a fan assisted heater in the bedroom where you need to minimise heat leakage overnight, or a basic manual model in your home office that may only get used sporadically. Everyone uses their domestic spaces differently, so it’s hard to define what’s ‘best’ for one person and not another. We would always advise having a think about how you use each of your rooms and choose a product that will respond to these needs most effectively.
What’s the difference between panel heaters and storage heaters?1
Panel heaters have hot elements in the base which engage whenever you switch on the heater. They heat up the room quickly with convection, but also cool down quickly once switched off as they interrupt the cycle of warm air rising and falling in the room.
Storage heaters are filled with hot bricks which are designed to charge up overnight and slowly release their heat through the day. The bricks heat up the air as it passes through the heater, spreading convection heat around the room. Storage heaters, unlike panel heaters, can take advantage of cheaper Economy 7 tariffs, which is why they’re still a popular choice among some users. They do cost less to run compared to panel heaters but are also much less controllable and require you to predict your heating needs well in advance.
Even though they sometimes look similar, it’s easy to differentiate storage heaters once you’re familiar with how they work. They’re bulkier, larger and heavier because of the thermal bricks inside the housing, whereas panel heaters are much lighter in comparison.
