At UK Energy Support, we want to help you as much as possible to keep your home rooms heated during winter (and any other time!) with the best electric heating system that can lower your energy bills.
Energy efficient heater systems like Economy 7 storage heaters are so much better in comparison to radiators that they can be installed in UK households for free as part of the ECO4 scheme – the government initiated scheme that aims to improve energy efficiency of UK homes.

What is the Difference Between Storage Heaters and Storage Radiators?
Some people can get confused about the difference between storage heaters and storage radiators, so let’s clear that up before continuing!
The most important difference between a room heater such as an electric radiator and a storage heater is how they work.
Radiators operate through convection (rather than the heat of ceramic bricks); which is the movement of fluids due to differences in pressure and temperature, and stored heat is emitted as the liquid inside it heats up.
A storage heater has no moving parts inside, meaning that there’s no need for repairs, and your heating is all under your control. You can choose when to release the heat and to a certain temperature depending on your needs. For a room that isn’t used frequently, it makes no sense to have the full heat output within it, which you can decide with storage heating. It is cheaper and means the cost of your heating is fully up to you, depending on what your circumstances require.
