Is your heating system costing you tenants? Replacing storage heaters in your rental property for modern electric radiators could be the key to getting a quality long term let. Read on to find out how electric radiators can benefit you.

Storage Heater Problems

Heating is a necessity, so to compete in today’s rental market your property needs to be comfortable and warm. Are your tenants always complaining about the storage heaters? Common complaints include:

  • No heat on an evening when it is needed
  • Controls are confusing/difficult
  • No instant heat on a cold day
  • No control of the heat on hot days
  • Economy 7 tariff costing too much

Upgrading to energy efficient electric radiators could be the answer.

Replacing Storage Heaters in your rental property

Your electrician will be able to dismantle and remove your storage heaters and convert the sockets to normal sockets or 24-hour supply fused spurs. You will also need to call your electric company to change from economy 7 to a standard tariff.

Energy Efficient Electric Radiators

Installing our electric radiators is very simple. Mark and drill 4 x holes using the bracket template. Then simply screw the bracket on the wall. Next, hang the radiator on the bracket and either plug in or wire into a fused spur. Fitting one radiator will take less than 15 minutes.

Electric radiators will give the same effect as a central heating system. Although they can be installed anywhere, we recommend you fit your electric radiators on an outside wall under a window like central heating radiators. Also, you need one in every room or area. If the room is large you may need more than one radiator. Your tenant will have 100% control of temperature and time in every room. Benefits of electric radiators include:

24/7 Programming – Only heat rooms you are using

Energy efficient heating – with precise thermostatic control

Effective and quality heat – even and comfortable room temperatures

Fully controllable – No overheating/underheating

Stylish & modern – Slimline design less bulky than storage heaters

No Economy 7 – standard tariffs offer better value

Lower running costs – happier tenants!
