Approved Storage Heater Installers Aberdeen

Our storage heater installers are NICEIC and NAPIT approved electricians and heating engineers. We employ local installers in and near Aberdeen as well as other parts of the country, providing electric heating supply and installation across Scotland.

We employ and subcontract over a dozen electric storage heater installers the majority of which have worked with us for over a decade. 

High Heat Retention Storage Heaters

High heat retention storage heaters are the latest technology in regards to electric storage heaters. Their modern technology allows the storage heaters to heat quicker, being more efficient whilst turned on, but equally important they cool down faster when turned off which actually caused more issues and energy waste than you might assume with older models.

High heat retention storage heaters are more efficient that older storage heaters, as literally 100% of the electricity the store and use is converted into to heat whenever you decide to turn on your heating manually or when it comes on using your set timer.

Upgrading to high heat retention storage heaters will improve your homes energy performance certificate (EPC) rating and you will noticed a reduction in your heating bills vs older storage heating.

 

Upgrade Your Storage Heaters

There are many reasons to upgrade your storage heaters, and one of the most common is that they don’t heat the surrounding space as well as they should. Electric storage heaters should always distribute the warmth throughout a large area, not just one or two spots. If your storage heating system isn’t doing its job, it may be time for an upgrade. Listed below are some important things to remember as you start to consider your options.

Storage Heaters with Solar Panels and Battery Storage

Powering your electric storage heaters with the energy generated from your solar panels and stored in your battery storage system is a fantastic way to heat your home for less.

We also advise that you leave the temperature dial at its lowest setting on your storage heaters unless you want to crank up the heat for a short period of time. Ideally, if you always have your dial set to the lowest heat even when you are sleeping, it will then heat quicker when you need a quick blast of heat for an hour and use less energy overall.

When To Replace Your Storage Heaters?

Traditional storage heating systems can be expensive to maintain and operate. Not only do they require regular servicing, but they also come with the risk of leaks and other problems.

If you’re looking for a more reliable and cost-effective solution, consider replacing your storage heaters with a modern electric system. Here are some signs that it’s time for an upgrade:

 

Outdated nighttime storage heaters can leave you feeling cold and clammy. In older or multiple-story properties, heat often dissipates quickly, making it challenging to maintain a comfortable temperature. When you find yourself constantly needing to adjust the temperature or add extra layers of clothing, don’t hesitate to consult our experts.

Older storage heaters often come with limited features and settings, making it challenging to customize your heating experience. Some even require manual intervention, such as adding water to the tank or manually igniting the pilot light. If you’re looking for a more user-friendly system, we can help.

As storage heater installers, we know how difficult it can be to find a place for these bulky units. Even modern storage heaters take up a lot of valuable space and can be challenging to move and position. If you’re struggling to find an electric heating solution that works for your property, let Home Renewables Scotland help.

Why Switch To Modern Electric Radiators?

More and more homes and businesses in Aberdeen are switching to modern electric radiators, and it’s not hard to see why. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of this type of storage heater replacement:

One of the best reasons to replace storage heaters is the ability to customize your heating experience. With individual thermostats and a wide range of settings, you can easily find the perfect balance of warmth and comfort. You can also program your system to operate on a schedule that fits your needs, which is great if you’re away from home during the day or have irregular working hours.

Most properties in the UK with storage heater systems are under Economy 7 tariffs, which offer cheaper electricity at night. However, these systems are often inefficient. Since they rely on flue connections and heat retention, they can lose a significant amount of heat.

Modern electric radiators, meanwhile, operate at near 100% efficiency, where all the heat produced translates to warmth in your indoor spaces. If you want to assess your options and find the most cost-effective solution, we can help. We understand why you might hesitate to switch to a standard electricity tariff, but there are many cases where it makes more financial sense to do so.

Another great benefit of electric heating is that it’s much safer than overnight storage heaters. There’s no risk of fires or explosions, and you won’t have to worry about toxic fumes or carbon monoxide poisoning from natural gas. Electric radiators are also much cooler to the touch, so there’s no risk of burns.

Unlike storage heaters, which can take hours to heat up, electric radiators provide instant warmth. They quickly and efficiently convert energy to heat instead of slowly releasing it over time.

If you live in an area with erratic weather or want to be able to heat your property on demand, this is an excellent option. You’ll also enjoy a more even heating distribution throughout the day. No more long hours spent huddled under a blanket!

Another advantage of electric radiators over storage heaters is that they offer more flexibility in terms of installation. Storage heaters are often bulky and difficult to move, so it can be challenging to find a suitable location for them.

With modern systems, you have a wide range of options. For example, wall-mounted radiators are popular because they take up minimal floor space, and we can install them at any height. We can also easily connect them to existing water heating systems.

If you’re unsure which type of radiator would be best for your property, we can offer expert advice.

There’s no denying that storage heating systems are an eyesore. Even new storage heaters are often large, unattractive, and make your property look dated.

Electric radiators, on the other hand, come in multiple styles to suit any taste. Whether you want a stainless steel finish for a modern look or a more traditional design, we can help you find the perfect solution.
