Electric Storage Heaters

Storage heaters work by storing heat generated by cheap night-time electricity and releasing this heat during the day. They are wall-mounted and look a bit like radiators. They work by drawing electricity over the course of a few hours at night, and storing it as heat in a ‘bank’ of clay or ceramic bricks to use the following day. The advantage is that they can consume electricity at night, when it’s cheap, and release their heat many hours later.

​Modern ‘High Heat Retention’ storage heaters, which are installed by qualified electricians FREE of charge under the ECO scheme, are 27% more efficient than traditional storage heaters and are an excellent means of heating electric only homes. ​You must have a smart meter or a dual rate meter installed already to be eligible to have storage heaters installed.
