Storage Heaters

Looking to replace traditional storage heaters with our new efficient electric radiators? Then you are in the right place.

Storage Heaters were designed after the Second World War and the principle is still the same today. They provide an inferior quality of heat, have lack of control and you have to predict how the weather will be the day before. Storage heaters charge up overnight on a ‘cheap’ rate of electricity however, the day rate on the Economy 7 tariff is inflated eliminating any potential savings! Storage heaters also have poor control, they emit heat all day when you are at work and usually have run out by the time you need it most – in the evening.

Economy 7

Economy 7 is an electricity tariff which charges two different rates depending on the time of day. Energy used during seven off-peak hours at night is charged at a lower rate. Households pay a premium rate for all other usage. This applies to all of your appliances including your lighting and refrigeration. The traditional scheme was particularly attractive to those with storage heaters, which allows you to generate and store heat overnight for use the next day.

Most people don’t realise the day rate for Economy 7  is inflated which eliminates any potential savings. In most cases, only the storage heaters and hot water benefit from the cheap rate. All other appliances use the expensive rate. Electric Radiator Solutions do not recommend Economy 7 or Economy 10 tariff.

How to Replace Storage Heaters in 3 Simple Steps

  1. Phone your existing supplier and tell them you want to charge from Economy 7 to a STANDARD TARIFF. They should do this for free. In modern installations, they may be able to switch you remotely.  In older installations they may need to come out and swap the meters or remove the E7 meter if you have 2 meters.

  2. Only when this is done shop around for a cheaper supplier. Talk to us today for advice.

  3. Remove your storage heaters, an electrician can help and also convert your sockets back to normal plug sockets. Make sure they have cooled down and beware as they are heavy.

Enjoy comfortable controllable heat from your new energy efficient electric radiators saying you money!

customer reviews

Can I just say that I was delighted with the whole service that Electric Radiator Solutions provided. Staff were courteous, responses prompt and the product is excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who requires an economical electric radiator.

We replaced our old storage heaters in our Holiday House, with electric radiators from Electric Radiator Solutions, after having some very high bills for our storage heaters. Richard was very helpful in advising us which size we needed for each room and we have been very pleased with the reduction in our electricity bills. The new state of the art heaters are far more attractive, very easy to install and consume less energy. Furthermore they are 24 hour programmable and can deliver heat efficiently at the times we require it. All in all, they have been a huge success and have saved a lot on our energy bills. A great investment!

After doing a lot of research we decided to replace our old panel heater in my flat with a new slimline Curvo+ electric radiator. The curved design looks perfect and I can't wait to start using it this winter.
