Why choose electric storage heaters?
Storage heaters are one of the most popular forms of electric heating. Storage Heaters used to be seen as an expensive alternative to provide heat compared to other fuels. Not today - with energy costs soaring, storage heaters now provide a competitive source of controllable heat energy when compared to gas and oil alternatives.
Electric Storage heaters are designed specifically to operate using cheaper, off-peak electricity making them a very cost effective way of heating your property.
Storage heaters also allow for quick and easy installation (no pipes, boiler or flue).

Storage heaters are one of the most popular forms of electric heating, and because they use low cost 'off peak' electricity running costs are low. Storage heaters are also cheap and easy to install, requiring no pipework or flues. Storage heaters have no moving parts or internal combustion, are virtually maintenance free and do not require an annual safety check.
This depends on the individual energy suppliers and their charges for off peak energy, however it is a more cost effective method as ‘off peak’ energy is cheaper than peak / day rate..
Storage heaters work by taking an energy charge during off peak energy times - (usually overnight – although some energy suppliers offer a day-time boost). On all storage heaters you are able to control the input charge (the amount of heat stored) by using a simple control on the top of the heater. When your energy supplier makes the off peak energy available the storage heater will automatically start to charge, then, once it has taken either it’s full charge or the energy supplier stops the off-peak energy, the heater will release the heat gradually throughout the day. Please consult energy suppliers in your area for details on tariffs available.
Storage heaters are very easy to use, but it is important to remember that they operate differently from conventional wet radiator systems as they heat the fabric [the walls and furniture] of the building.
No, we do not advise the painting of our heaters.
The storage heaters have no moving parts or internal combustion so they are virtually maintenance free and do not require an annual safety check.
Our mini storage heaters XL6 & XLS6 are ideal in size and IPX2 [drip-proof] rated making them suitable for bathroom use, although the installing electrician must ensure its position within the bathroom complies with the IEE regulations. Our range of XL/XLS are all also IPX2 rated. We do not recommend storage heaters for heavily tiled bathrooms as the tiles will prevent the walls from absorbing the storage heat.
No, you should never cover the surfaces of the heater or obstruct the air outlet grilles as this will cause temperatures of the product to rise and the safety cut-outs to operate. However a towel rail for our mini storage heater range (XL6/XLS6) is available as an accessory and provides a safe method of drying towels in front of the unit (part no. STR6).
Yes, we sell shelves to complement our range of storage heaters (SHE6, SHE12, SHE18 and SHE24). A minimum clearance of 150mm between the heater and the shelf must be adhered to.
Storage heaters are not designed for solely wall mounting, they require a combination of feet and secure wall fixings due to their weight.
