Electric Storage Heaters

Electricity is more expensive than gas or oil, and is a relatively carbon intensive heating fuel, but it is available in almost every home in the UK. There are a number of electric heating technologies that can be installed easily, and relatively cheaply, in a wide range of homes.

The most common is the electric storage heater, which can make use of cheaper off-peak electricity to help keep the running costs down.
