When to Use Electric Heaters and Which Option Best Suits You

Energy efficient electric radiators. How good are they?

Energy efficiency means using less energy to provide the same service. The phrase “energy efficiency” is often used as shorthand to describe any kind of energy-saving measure. Technically it should be distinguished from energy saving conservation, a broader term which can also include forgoing a service rather than changing the efficiency with which it is provided. An example of energy conservation include turning down a thermostat in the winter or walking to the shops instead of driving. Using energy more efficiently through more efficient end-uses or through more efficient generation such as combined heat and power reduces the amount of fuel required to produce a unit of energy output and reduces the corresponding emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases.
