The weather’s finally starting to warm up, spring is in full swing and the DIY projects are looming. If you are planning on upgrading your central heating, or require kitting out a new build with a brand new heating system, now is the time to start!

In this article we will explain everything you need to know this spring about gas and electric wall mounted radiator systems in order to ensure you are heating your house or premises in the most efficient way possible.

We are all familiar with the quirks of gas central heating; the time it takes to heat up, the temperamental thermostats, but how do they really stack up against the new technology provided within wall mounted electric radiators?

Initial Cost

If you are looking to install a brand new heating system in your home or commercial property you firstly need to think about the cost of the initial installation. Although gas central heating may seem like the simple solution it is by far the cheapest to install. Not only that but it will also cost you in time meaning it could delay any other work you have planned. Wall mounted electric radiators on the other hand don’t require a qualified plumber or electrician, all you need is some basic DIY skills to attach them to the wall and then simply plug them in.

Radiator Maintenance

A major benefit with wall mounted electric radiators is that unlike other heating systems they don’t have any pipework and therefore don’t require any annual maintenance. If you opt for gas central heating you will need to be aware of annual boiler servicing and any annual maintenance such as radiator drainage and replenishment.

Electric Radiator Technology

In a day and age where technology is key in most aspects of our lives it is important to find out what your heating can offer you and your home. Our latest models of electric radiators offer so much more than the traditional gas radiators for instance; complete control allowing you to determine exactly which radiator comes on at what time and window open technology which can automatically turn the heating off when it detects that a window has been opened. Our iVista range even allows you to control your heating from your smartphone or tablet, perfect for cutting down on those energy bills!
