Blended Heat Delivery

Our electric heaters use both convection and radiant heat to give you the best of both: instant warmth and long-lasting heat.

Electric radiators explained

While all electric radiators run off mains power, they don’t all work in quite the same way. If you’re looking for a radiator that will retain heat long after the power is switched off, like traditional heating systems, consider our oil and ceramic options. But a more efficient choice is likely to be our modern, ‘dry’ technology radiators: they heat up more quickly, meaning they pull electricity for shorter periods.

Dry technology

Electric radiators that use dry technology heat a room quickly, delivering the perfect blend of convection and radiant heat so you get evenly distributed warmth. They’re also lighter than other options, easier to install and recycle, and require minimal maintenance.

Oil-filled radiators

Filled with diametric oil, these radiators retain heat like traditional heating systems, but they’re easier to install and use. They also come with many of the benefits of dry technology radiators, such as 24/7 programming.

Ceramic-core radiators

Like oil-filled radiators, ceramic radiators stay hot even after they’ve stopped using energy. In fact, with its high level of thermal inertia, ceramic stays hot longer than either oil or the water in traditional home heating systems.

More electric radiator features

Our added features are all about making things that bit easier – because life can be busy enough without having to deal with discoloured walls, unwelcome noises or unexpected cold spells.

Wall Discolouration Protection

Directional air vents filter all heat away from your walls, protecting them from the unsightly discolouration – sometimes known as ‘ghosting’ – that’s common with other heaters.

Size matters

So you’ve decided to buy an electric radiator. Maybe you’ve even selected the model you want. But how powerful does it need to be? It all depends on the space you want to heat, what you use the room for and how well it’s insulated.

Our Radiator Size calculator takes the guesswork out of your decision. It works out exactly how powerful your radiators need to be and how many are required to warm your chosen space, then recommends the best size for quality warmth all year round.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve been selling electric radiators since 2014, and we’ve had plenty of questions in that time. Here, we’ve put together our answers to some of our customers’ most common questions to help you make the right decision about your heating solution.

Homes in the UK have traditionally been heated using a gas boiler and central heating system. But times are changing. Not only are domestic gas heating systems responsible for about 20 per cent of the country’s carbon emissions, but they’re also clunky, inefficient and generally unsuited for the modern world.

Inefficiency

When hot water moves through the pipe system to each radiator, heat leaks out along the way – which is why you get those surprising warm patches in places that really don’t need to be warm. You also have to activate the whole system to heat any one radiator. And that doesn’t come cheap.

Overheating, overpaying

Most gas heating systems take their lead from a thermostat, which measures the temperature in a certain room and triggers the central heating for the whole house when it gets too cold. The problem is that not all rooms are the same temperature – and they don’t all need to be heated at the same time. The result? You end up overheating rooms that don’t need it and overpaying for energy.

Slow heat transfer

Gas central heating works by moving hot water from the boiler, through the pipes, to each of the radiators in your home. The radiators gradually warm up, heating the cold air around them. Sound longwinded? That’s because it is: gas heating is much slower than other heating options, such as an electric heating solution.

Noise

All that pipework isn’t just clunky – it can be noisy too. And with radiators hissing and gurgling, along with any number of strange sounds, gas central heating is often a far cry from peaceful.

We’re all doing our bit to be greener – but that doesn’t need to mean going cold in the winter months. Electric heating is generally considered to be better for the environment than gas: not only is gas a fossil fuel but the UK’s electricity grid is becoming increasingly renewable. Electric radiators can also be so efficient that they can halve your heating bill, alongside some other handy perks.

Energy-efficiency

With no complicated pipe system where heat can get lost along the way, electric heating is extremely efficient and cost effective. The radiators start warming up as soon as you switch them on – and when they’re made from highly conductive aluminium material, they warm up almost instantly.

Precise temperature control

Electric heaters usually have a programmable thermostat built in. This means that each electric radiator can adjust its output according to the room’s specific temperature. Each one can be individually controlled – so you only need to heat the rooms you want to, saving you energy and money.

Tailored to you

Gas central heating tends to be all or nothing. But with an electric heating system, you can be much more sophisticated. Each individual radiator can have its own schedule, making it easy to use energy more efficiently. Plus, with WiFi-enabled electric radiators, you can control the heating in every room from the palm of your hand.

No noise

You might not even notice the strange sounds your traditional heating system makes any more, but you’ll definitely notice when they’re gone. Our modern electric radiators are almost silent – so the only noise you’ll hear is a sigh of relaxation.  

The main types of electric radiator are oil, ceramic and dry. Oil and ceramic radiators retain heat long after the power is switched off, which may be more efficient for rooms that cool down quickly. However, they take much longer to heat up in the first place, meaning they usually have to pull electricity for longer. Typically, a more efficient electric heating choice is ‘dry’ technology: dry radiators heat up a room more quickly, so they use less electricity to achieve your desired temperature. 

When choosing your electric radiator, be sure to check the spec. All our electric radiators incorporate energy-saving features, such as open-window detection, unlimited 24/7 programming, and intelligent heat management technology. They are also European Lot 20 compliant, which means they have been designed to be as efficient as possible.

Yes: you can simply plug an electric radiator into a normal electric socket and use it straight away. If you prefer, you can remove the three-pin plug and fuse spur the wire into the wall. This will have no negative impact on your product warranty.

We typically recommend 100w per m2 for our electric heating systems. This calculation is based on a room with a standard ceiling height of 2.4m, double-glazed windows and good insulation. If you need help calculating the correct size radiator for you, please use our wattage calculator.

We recommend running our electric radiators on a standard 24-hour tariff. If you need to move from an economy tariff, we recommend speaking with your electricity provider.

Our energy-efficient electric heating solutions include all the necessary technology to keep energy wastage as low as possible. As a result, our electric radiators can cost as little as 1 to 2 pence per hour to run.*

Most of our customers fit their electric radiators to the wall themselves within 10 minutes, using a drill and the wall brackets provided. However, some customers prefer to hire a local tradesperson. This option might be particularly helpful if you plan to remove and replace an old system with wall-mounted electric radiators.

Electric heating has advanced significantly over the past 10 years, and it now delivers the same heat you’d expect from traditional heating solutions but quickly and more cheaply. The main reason for this is that each radiator can be controlled individually, giving you the temperature you want, where and when you want it. Electric radiators also heat up more quickly, helping eliminate energy wastage and minimising running costs.

Electric panel heaters – often considered more of a temporary heating solution – are notoriously expensive to run. They generate 100% convection heat, which can dry out the air and irritate the skin and lungs. Panel heaters can also be noisy, while the internal fan can push dust around the room and result in an imbalanced distribution of heat. 

Electric radiators, on the other hand, deliver a perfect blend of convection and radiant heat. They create a comfortable, equal distribution of heat, are silent during operation, and most importantly they’re cheaper to run. Because wall-mounted electric radiators are considered a permanent heating solution like gas and oil, you can expect them to last much longer than panel heaters too.

Yes. Our electric radiators are as safe as traditional heating solutions. They also include safety mechanisms to prevent the radiator from overheating.

Storage heaters tend to be inefficient, expensive and not very adaptable, so an energy-efficient electric radiator is an excellent upgrade. On average, customers switching from storage heaters to electric radiators will save between 40% and 50% on running costs alone. We also recommend switching your electricity tariff to a 24-hour tariff.

All our radiators incorporate energy-saving technology to help minimise any energy wastage. They also adhere strictly to European Lot 20 regulations, meaning they’re as efficient as possible. Our electric radiators are manufactured from lightweight aluminium, which make them more easily recyclable. Electric heating solutions can also make use of renewable electricity supplies, unlike gas heating systems, which run off fossil fuels.

First, there’s quality: we have designed, styled and selected the best components to help maximise the lifespan of each product we sell, and all of our radiators are manufactured in Europe by a company with over 45 years of experience. We keep our customers happy too: Best Electric radiators currently has the highest Trustpilot score in the electric radiator market.
