Why Choose Economy Radiators

Read all our pages which are packed with incredible detail to help you make up your mind.

Our founder Michael Wood started the business in 2007 after renovating his home and installing electric radiators. Michael wanted to find out how efficient his new heating system was so he started measuring the low running costs achieved with his electric radiators – to our knowledge none of our competitors have done this yet.

Low running costs? Don’t believe us? Check out the energy consumption costs for two very different properties, our warehouse and cottage, for the evidence.

Our ethos of transparency, allied to a desire to provide the best possible products and services, has driven Economy Radiators' amazing growth. Every year since being founded our business has grown. And we’re delighted because that means we’re helping more people achieve great running costs with our electric radiators.

We work had to provide a truly excellent experience for all of our customers, and the results speak for themselves: we receive referrals from delighted customers. We’re proud of that.

Not only that, we are so confident in our radiators, that we provide a 10 year manufacturer's guarantee, with a three-year guarantee for the electronics.

Our showroom radiator case study

Here's another example of the evidence we can cite to back up our claims: we use our showroom 1kw radiator set to a seven-day-program. The radiators are always on and the program means we’re never cold.

All the radiators are set to heat the showroom and offices to 20°C in the daytime and 16° at night. Amazingly, in winter, the radiator draws electricity between just four and seven hours in any 24 hour cycle to achieve this.

If you spread this running cost over the entire year (most people pay by Direct Debit), it equates to an amazing heating cost of as little as 1.5p per hour!

Our showroom radiator also reveals that:

  • 80% of all energy is used in the six winter months
  • 40% is used in the two peak (coldest) months
  • 10% is used in the coldest period (usually around five days)

So it makes sense to shop around for the best electricity deals, and to spread your costs over a full 12 months paying with a Direct Debit.

Electric radiators and superior heating performance

Our products provide an experience which can be equivalent to – or even better than – a traditional central heating system. It does this in the following ways:

  • Providing the same quality of heat
  • Giving superior controllability
  • With no pipes, no mess, no fuss, no annual maintenance and no costly plumbers

Our radiators can do this for a number of reasons. Firstly the accuracy of our thermostat plays a huge part, ensuring the room temperature remains constant, not over or under-heated (as cheaper products sometimes do) and by ensuring energy use is kept to a minimum.

Our radiators have an 'optimiser' which controls the consumption of electricity. This allows the radiator to only use the minimum required energy to achieve the comfortable temperature you have chosen.

In the end, you have ultimate control – you can intelligently heat your home, warming each room at a different time and at temperatures to suit. Wonderfully warm living rooms and slightly cooler bedrooms for example. The choice is yours.

If you are looking for efficient heating, low installation costs, no ongoing maintenance and an attractive design, then please view our range.
