In this article, we’re going to look at the benefits of going for a dedicated circuit, whether or not you can wire heaters into the ring main and why sometimes a plug-in fitting isn’t the best option.

But if you’re the curious type, you might be wondering ‘how do electric heaters actually work?’. Well, in short electric heaters work by using a length of resistive wire that heats up as electrons pass through the metal. It sounds complicated but, as we’re about to explain, it’s actually very simple.

So, if you’re wondering ‘is it for me?’ or ‘will it help me to save energy?’ we’re going to show you all the ways smart heating can benefit your household.
The most efficient and cost-effective heating system is always going to be the one that offers some degree of radiant heat. It lasts for much longer compared to convection, isn’t affected by air movement and helps us feel cosy, but how does it actually work and which heating systems provide the most radiant heat? We take a look at two of the most energy-efficient ways to heat your property, as well as what features you should look for to keep your running costs as low as possible.
