If you own a second home for work or holiday purposes, you’ll know what it’s like to juggle more than a few bills! Whether you use your second home a few times a month or a few times a year, heating it whilst you’re away can end up being costly. This blog covers some ways you can use electric radiators to heat your second home efficiently without breaking the bank.
Central heating or electric heating?
Traditionally central heating has delivered the best heating solution for homeowners. However for a second or holiday home central heating may not be the best form of heating to have. If you are away for long periods you can risk issues with leaks, which can cause untold damage.
If your second home needs a new central heating system installed, this could cost you thousands and could result in a huge disturbance to your home. Electric radiators alternatively take less time to install and can be placed anywhere in your rooms wherever there is a wall socket.
Delivering energy efficiency around the clock
Depending on the layout of your second home you may need different temperatures. Central heating is ideal for delivering even heating all day but electric radiators can be independently programmed at different times to deliver the perfect temperature. Programming the radiators to deliver a certain temperature at certain times means your home is protected during the colder months. This helps to reduce issues with damp and in the long run keeps energy costs down.
