03 May How to Know Your House Needs a New Heating Solution
We are coming into spring and you may be considering turning your heating down or off, but don’t put off thinking about a new heating system for a few months. The warmer months are the ideal time to look at improving or adding a new heating system. This is because you don’t have to worry about relying on the heating being on and feeling cold.
Damp Is Creeping In
A sign that your current heating system is in need of replacing is that your home may feel damp. Damp can occur for many reasons, but if your heating system isn’t effective, your home may not be drying out. Damp can occur in places where there is poor ventilation or lack of heating.
The Heating Is on Full Blast but It’s Still Cold
No matter how much you turn up the thermostat or settings on your radiators, you still feel chilly. Sadly, many heating systems are used well beyond their efficient days, but the cost of new boilers puts many off. You can make the most of poor heating by adding in draught excluders, but it won’t fix the issue of poor heating.
It Keeps Breaking Down
Your heating is never reliable and seems to spend more time breaking down than actually putting out heat. An unreliable heating system is frustrating, and you don’t want it breaking down in the middle of winter, let alone summertime!
It Starts Making All Sorts of Weird Noises
Does it sound like there is a ghost in the attic, or something loose rolling around your floorboards? If your heating system is starting to make a lot of noises when it’s on, then it’s probably time to consider an upgrade.
The Aesthetics Are Outdated
Old-fashioned radiators and storage heaters just don’t look that appealing anymore, especially as you may want to update the look of your home.
What’s the Solution?
Without significant investment and upheaval to your home, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of options. One solution you may not have thought about is electric radiators. Electric radiators have many advantages over traditional heating systems such as storage heaters or gas powered radiators.
Electric radiators do have a number of features that make them ideal additions to your home:
Easy to install, with no professionals needed – just get a screwdriver and you can install one at home easily.
24-hour programmable settings to suit your day-to-day routine.
The thermostat that kicks in at a set temperature – this saves you energy as it will keep the heat topped up and also switch off when not needed.
Wireless control* – control your heaters from your phone or tablet. Change the temperature for heating across your home without getting out of your chair.
Stylish designs that suit all styles of homes, especially new builds.
Reduce your spending on electricity and gas through the latest radiator technology.
