Electric storage heaters are built with heat-retaining clay bricks that build up and store the heat during the night then release the heat as required during the daytime, hence the term “night storage heaters”.
As demand for power is significantly reduced at night-time many energy provides offer significant discounts on the use of electricity during this time. One such example is “Economy 7” which reduces the cost of power between midnight and 7am.
The two main aims of the Government’s ECO 3 Scheme are to make heating affordable for all householders in the UK and to reduce carbon emissions.
Modern energy efficient electric storage heaters will reduce your heating bills and make your home more comfortable.
Modern storage heaters can cost over £1,000 each to supply and install but a Storage Heater Grant from the ECO Scheme can fund up to 100% of this.
