Extensive experience with Storage Heater electric heatingStorage heaters have been around for many years now and as such we, at Foster Electrical Services, have extensive experience with this type of electric heating, both installation and also repairs.
A storage heater stores thermal energy during the evening, when base load electricity is available at a lower cost, and releases the heat during the day as required. Heat banks may be composed of clay bricks or other ceramic material, of concrete walls, or of water containers
Storage heaters are usually used in conjunction with a two-tariff electricity meter which records separately the electricity used during the off-peak period so that it can be billed at a lower rate. In order to derive any benefit from a storage heater, the house must be on a special electricity tariff i.e. Economy 7.
Where appropriate, replacement storage heaters can be fitted to your existing restricted hours wiring circuits and your old storage heater dismantled and disposed of safely.
