Electric radiators are the most advanced and efficient heating solution on the market; however, a lot of people are still wary about purchasing them. Why? Because of the bad name given to electric heating by storage heaters.

Though they are both powered in the same way, electric radiators and storage heaters have very little in common. The new, state-of-the-art, products are better than their predecessors in every way. Here are four examples that prove this is the case.

1. They're Designed Better : Old storage heaters are not exactly the most aesthetically pleasing of products, nor are they particularly streamline. These bulky units are far from ideal where floor space is at a premium and look incredibly dated when sitting next to the surrounding modern furniture. Fortunately, electric radiators are designed with looks in mind and are sleek and elegant when mounted on a wall or castors. Thanks to innovative products such as vertical radiators, advanced heaters can be installed in small rooms and dwellings without taking up any floor space.

2. They're Cheaper to Operate : Storage heaters are designed to charge during the night when electricity is cheaper and emit heat during the day. The problem with this is that it affects other household appliances such as the fridge/freezer and television, making them more expensive to run. While they have storage properties, electric radiators do not need to be charged up overnight and can be operated as and when you need them, taking just 30-minutes to reach full temperature.

3. Heating Can Be Controlled : Unlike storage heaters which rely on you predicting the weather in order to get the right heat for the next day, electric radiators can be fully controlled via built-in thermostats. This means a comfortable level of heat can be achieved every time.

4. Bricks are Now Tiles : Storage heaters contain bricks that are designed to keep heat that is generated in and recycle it when the electricity has been switched off. Unfortunately, there is no control over heat and bricks tend to leak without any long-lasting effect on the surrounding area. EHS electric radiators come with patented Magmatic Heat Retention Tiles, which are designed to minimise energy use and running costs.
