ELKAtherm v Gas Central Heating

ELKAtherm Electric Heating System v/s Gas Central Heating System

As the country begins phasing out gas heating, how does ELKAtherm stack up?

Switching from Gas Central Heating – How will ELKAtherm Electric Heating benefit me?

Did you know that Britain is preparing to cut fossil fuel use by 70% in 2050! It may sound like a long way off but to achieve this the installation of gas central heating will have to come to an end, some say by 2030 and there are some hints it may be as soon as 2025. That is less than ten years away, so if you are considering replacing your heating system, now would be an ideal time to start.

Gas Central Heating Can be Expensive to run

It is often believed that a gas central heating system is the cheapest to run. This may be because the price of gas is cheaper per kilowatt hour, sometimes as little as 4p per kWh of heat, compared to electric, which can be around 11/13p per kWh. The fact is that you may have to use a considerable amount more than energy efficient electric radiators.

Heat Wastage from Gas Systems

The heat loss from gas systems accelerates according to the location or even the length of the pipework, meaning that the last radiator may well have less than half the efficiency of the first. On average, you get about 75% of heat that you produce from gas central heating, therefore, the lower kWh rate is less useful as may first be perceived. Given that you lose 25%, your system will continuously need to produce enough heat to ensure that that lost heat is being pushed through the system.

ELKAtherm = Energy efficient

ELKAtherm are proudly committed to manufacturing electric heating systems that are energy efficient. Our German electric radiators don’t have high input values and do not rely on a big overnight charge of electricity. Our heating delivers constant economical heating to thoroughly heat your home when and where you need it. No maintenance needed.

ELKAtherm = 100% heat remains in the room

The deep fluted design of the ELKAtherm heaters allows for gentle, natural convection. This gentle movement of air over the surface of the core gives a more even heat distribution and throws radiant heat in all directions.

Gas Requires Annual Maintenance

Ongoing maintenance is a necessity for all gas systems and can be a costly annual fee or monthly insurance charges. You also have to factor in emergency plumbing problems that need fixing or the inevitable event that the boiler will eventually need replacing.

ELKAtherm = No Servicing or Maintenance

ELKAtherm radiators have modern, robust technology and require no maintenance or servicing. All our radiators are manufactured in Germany and come with a genuine manufacturer guarantee, which means our customers have total peace of mind that in the event of any issue, we will be on hand to fix it quickly and efficiently.
