Just to say how impressed I am with the efficiency of these radiators. The thermostats and programmes are amazing.C. Clayton
60% of the UK population still pay 30% too much for their electricity.
We believe this applies to 60% of the UK population.
One of the mos convincing arguments we can provide our customers is proof of the potential running costs of this low cost electric heating option. So, on a monthly basis we will provide an update on the running costs for two of our own properties; a cottage and a warehouse & office complex.
The cottage is a small two bedroom end terrace cottage. It has three outside walls and has poor insulation.
The average price per kWh at the moment is between 10 to 12 pence.
Typically you will use more energy during the colder months from November to March. This will peak in January and February because they are the coldest months, although December can also be very cold.
If you pay your electricity bills by direct debit/standing order, you will usually overpay in the summer to offset your extra energy usage over the winter months. This will help spread your energy costs evenly over 12 months.
If your energy supplier advises your standing order/direct debit needs to increase, it is likely to be because you have not paid enough to cover past consumption.
The best way to combat this is to always provide actual meter readings to your energy supplier, rather than accepting estimated readings. This way, you can keep track of your energy consumption throughout the year, and prevent any large shortfalls building up on your energy account.
Your energy bill will be dependent on the type and construction of your home, and whether you have insulation and double glazing fitted, as well as the type of heating system installed
The running costs provided here are based on the real life and published running costs of four test rooms which we measured in our own home.
