Why Switch?

You may wonder what benefits switching to electric heating can offer – well here are some of the answers!

Providing Planet-friendly Heat

We are running out of options. Other natural fuel resources are dwindling.

Renewables’ share of the UK’s electricity generation is rising.

To provide planet-friendly heat in homes and public spaces we have to look at electricity as the viable alternative.

Luckily, we can harness the power of the sun and the wind to ensure electricity never runs out.

“The competitiveness of solar and wind power improves due to much sharper increases in gas and coal prices”

HeatElectric is the UK’s largest ELKATHERM® dealer and main supplier for Sunamp thermal storage heaters, Qcells solar systems and Fondital electric towel ladder radiators.

You don’t have to compromise on comfort or looks - we won’t compromise on climate.

ELKATHERM® electric heating

The benefit of electric heating is that it is far more versatile than other alternatives. It can be used for both heating space and hot water more efficiently without necessarily burning a fossil fuel.

Designed to the highest standards

This is regarded as being safer, less toxic, more reliable and is very much in-line with today’s thinking. European Lot20 regulations stipulate that all space heaters must comply with a minimum efficiency value, to lessen environmental impact. A massive two thirds of household energy goes towards heating so it is more important than ever to ensure heating solutions are energy efficient. Our ELKATHERM® heaters are designed and manufactured in Germany to perform to extremely high standards and are perhaps the best choice you can make towards a planet-friendly home. The latest developments in ELKATHERM® electric heating include effective and fast components, an innovative fireclay core with embedded elements and simple to operate to amazing, state-of-the-art programming.

Cost saving & space saving

Our electric heating is cheaper to install than gas, has no maintenance costs and lasts for at least twice as long as the average gas boiler. It is also 100% efficient, meaning all the electricity you use and pay for, converts into heat. Electric heating is clean and respectful to the environment with no polluting gases. There are no water-filled pipes, so there is less risk of damage to the property from leaking or burst pipework. With electric systems, there is no noise emitted and no limescale build up.

With electric heaters, there is no heat loss between the power source and the heat output. Electric heating systems are easier and cheaper to install compared to gas central heating that requires pipes, vents and ducts. If you consider all the factors then electric heating beats gas by a considerable margin.

An Eco sustainable future

The de-forestation of our precious planet, and the subsequent loss of animal habitats, is perhaps mankind’s biggest sin.

David Attenborough fixed the world’s focus firmly on the problem, now it’s up to us to do something about it.

We are all accountable for creating an eco friendly future for the next generation and beyond.

As a company we take our corporate responsibility very seriously. We have changed our working practices to ensure we drastically reduce the amount of carbon that we generate, and we will continue to look for ways to further improve.

This can be achieved by creating less waste, recycling, reducing unnecessary journeys and burning less fossil fuels.

Our own offices and showrooms do not use gas. We practice what we preach and all our heating is supplied by ELKATHERM® electric radiators.
