Electrical Heating is incredibly versatile
Electric heating is incredibly versatile as it can be used for both heating and water products. Moreover, with a whopping 64.7% of the energy used in EU households going towards heating, it is more important than ever to ensure your heating solution is energy efficient. Many products now include the latest developments in electric heating technology such as state-of-the-art programming, smart Wi-Fi electric heating apps and self-learning heating programmes that adapt to your lifestyle.
Our electric radiators come with smart controls and digital accurate thermostats that control temperature variations to fractions of a degree. Less temperature variation means less energy used. You can set different temperatures and time setting for each room meaning if you just want to heat one room you can - no need to heat the whole house. Wi-Fi is now standard on most of our radiators meaning you can control your heating system from anywhere.
Lower upfront costs
Electric heating systems are easier and cheaper to install compared to gas central heating that requires pipes, vents and ducts. They don’t require flue or pipework so there are no restrictions on building layout or design. Nor are there any planning issues. A simple connection to the electric circuit is all that is required, so for new build properties, this means it can go in at the second fix wiring stage. You can build faster and with greater freedom.
Low maintenance and long guarantees
•Gas central heating requires maintenance that can be expensive. Each year annual maintenance, plumbing work and gas safety certificates rack up the pounds. Also, some modern condensing gas boilers are prone to breaking down and condensate pipes can freeze in the winter. Electric heating requires virtually no maintenance. There are no flues to inspect or a gas safety certificate to obtain. All that is needed is to keep your product clean, most likely with a damp cloth only. Some of our radiators come with a 20 year guarantee
Gas heating wastes energy through the pipework. As the heated water snakes its way through the pipe system, heat will radiate from the pipes. You will also have to activate the whole system, even if you just want a single radiator on. You can turn other radiators off, however, the boiler has to heat the whole tank of water in one location and send it to your desired radiator. With electric heaters, there is no heat loss between the power source and the heat output.
Value for money
Gas is cheaper than electricity to run on a daily basis, but when you add up the installation, plus maintenance and running expenses, along with the average length of a products lifetime, gas can be expensive. Electric heating is cheaper to install than gas, has no maintenance costs and lasts for up to 50% longer than the average gas boiler. It is also 100% efficient, meaning all the electricity you use and pay for converts into heat.
Could improve your homes energy performance certificate
If you are thinking of upgrading your heating because you are selling or renting your property, the electric heating system you install could lower or increase your energy performance certificate (EPC). This could have profound implications if you are renting as the law now state that your EPC rating must be a minimum of E rated.
Dimplex Quantum smart storage heater are BEAB approved which means they will improve the energy efficient rating of your property. Very useful for landlords and social housing or just selling your property. We can advise you on all your options
As we become more and more aware of the need to move towards a smarter and more sustainable approach to using energy, gas remains the UK’s biggest greenhouse gas emissions source. Gas systems produce damaging carbon emissions. On the other hand, electric heating is much cleaner and respectful to the environment as it does not emit polluting gases or use heavy metals.
Emma Stacey, John Dillon, Andover
"Both myself and John would like to say how impressed we were with the service from Greenvision, particular with the two chaps that attended. They were very courteous and tidy and even set all the settings on the radiators before leaving which I felt was above and beyond to the service. We were left with all the necessary paperwork and instructions and were extremely Greenvision were able to dispose of our old radiators. Fab job and we are very happy customers, lovely to come into a warm office without having to worry about turning it on and setting it ourselves."
G McTernan, London
“Greenvision has to be the most helpful company ever sent to my property. No mess and no confusion they just got the job done. What impressed me more than anything is that they saved me £220 by switching my energy tariff. How’s that for service! I was not expecting them to go the extra mile but this really made the difference.”
Sahra Bashi, London
“The service your company provides is top quality – from the initial survey right through to handing over. Installation was stress free and it greatly helps that the installers were courteous and clean. You showed genuine interest in saving me money on my electrical bills and I’m delighted to say that Greenvision saved me £180 by switching my tariff. I was never aware how simple this was! The new smart storage heaters are clearly going to save me even more on my electrical bills in the years to come.”
Pauline Miller, Surrey
“Seldom do I write about a company but I needed to in this case. I have had heaters from other companies, but the heaters I ordered from Greenvision Energy surpasses all others. One has to compare when buying these days and choose what suits, price, efficiency and service. There was no comparison in this case, Greenvision Energy is perfect in every way. This company excels.
It is nice to deal with a company that also has a very good aftersales service, a rare thing these days. Your quick response to my programming queries and energy saving advice was superb. Your sales co-ordinator Paul Campbell was especially helpful. Many thanks Greenvision Energy for all your help.”
Are electric radiators energy efficient and cost effective?
At Greenvision Energy all our radiators boast in-depth digital programmers that allow you to set heating schedules that reflect your lifestyle for each room in your house, ensuring you’re only using energy when you need heat. At the most sophisticated end of our range you’ll even find self-learning radiators equipped with motion detectors. They can learn your weekly routine keeping rooms warm when you’re in them and saving energy when you’re not by automatically reducing the temperature of a room if it’s not occupied.
With the open window detection feature, if a sudden drop in temperature is detected, the radiator will switch to minimum heat, helping you to save energy and needless cost.It’s important to remember that the cost of running electric heating also depends on your energy supplier and the tariff you are on! You should always shop around for the best tariff to lower the cost of your heating bills. As part of our installation service, we can check you’re on the right tariff for your energy needs and make sure you’re getting the best deal.Call us on: 0115 854 7498 Or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Are electric radiators safe?
Electric radiators offer a very safe and reliable heating solution. With no boiler or any other internal combustion element there’s no risk of carbon monoxide production, so your electric heating system won’t need a regular service. With no pipes or water into your radiators there’s no risk of leaks and you’ll never have to bleed a radiator again. They are also fitted with thermal safety limiters which prevent overheating by cutting power to the radiator if the temperature rises above the set limit.
All our electric radiators conform to the electrical safety regulations set by the European Council. Check individual products for details.
Can I put an electric radiator in a bathroom?
We do not recommend electric radiators for bathroom installation. In most bathrooms, electric towel rails provide a more practical option, making better use of the space. They give you somewhere to hang your towels while also keeping the room warm. All towel rails for bathroom installation must be installed by a professional electrician.
Do electric radiators heat up quickly?
Electric radiators boast some of the fastest heat-up times on the market. Unlike gas central heating radiators, which must wait for water to be heated electric radiators start heating up from the moment they are switched on. Electric radiators with aluminium heating elements, such as the Atlantic Oniris offer fast heat up times and make great heating solutions for bedrooms where you may want fast-acting heating on a chilly night.
Are electric radiators eco-friendly?
Electric radiators are carbon neutral at point of use. This means that they do not produce carbon dioxide or other pollutants. When used with green electricity generated from sustainable energy sources, they offer one of the few entirely carbon free heating systems available.
Many of our electric radiators are also manufactured from recycled steel and aluminium. These radiators are also 100% recyclable – so when your radiators reach the end of their life, they won’t have to be thrown into landfill.
How do electric radiators compare to gas central heating?
Gas central heating is one of the most popular heating systems However, in the last few decades, electric heating technology has developed at such a rate that energy efficient electric radiators now offer an economical alternative. Innovative new thermal elements, fast and effective electrical components and state-of-the-art heating control features allow you to reduce your energy usage like never before Here are a few advantages electric radiators offer over gas central heating.
Gas central heating systems waste energy through the pipe system. As hot water makes its journey through the house towards the radiators, heat will radiate out from the pipes, needlessly heating the Another consideration with a piped heating system is that the entire system must be activated to use a single radiator – so you’ll be sending heat through the whole house even if you just want to heat a bedroom. Not so with electric radiators. With a short cable in place of the gas central heating pipe system, the radiators engage, individually, as soon as they are switched on, with no heat loss between the power source and the heater.
With gas central heating systems, a thermostat is usually fitted in a central location. This central thermostat will provide an unrepresentative temperature reading for the rest of the house. Temperatures will vary across your home but your gas central heating will work to heat the whole house whenever the temperature drops in the room with the thermostat regardless of the temperature in other rooms.
Each of our electric radiators includes a high precision thermostat built in to the body of the radiator. These thermostats provide accurate temperature readings for each room and will control each room separately, so the radiators in a draughty sitting room might switch on whilst the radiators in the next-door kitchen are off to maintain comfortable levels of heat. And the high precision thermostats are accurate to half a degree. They’re also cheaper to install than gas central heating and require very minimal maintenance
There’s no question that energy efficient electric radiators are far more effective and a more economical choice for principal home heating. However, panel heaters can give you a low-cost option which still allows you to effectively heat less used rooms such as a study, spare bedroom or conservatory.
What’s the difference between electric radiators and panel heaters?
Panel heaters are a form of low-cost home heaters which heat purely by convection. Because the elements which heat the air are unenclosed, the heaters are cheaper and easier to manufacture than electric radiators.
However, panel heaters are less efficient than electric radiators because convected heat is less efficient than radiated heat. This means that you’ll need to use more power to heat your room with panel heaters than you would with energy efficient electric radiators.
Panel heaters are also less durable than electric radiators because they have to work much harder to heat home spaces. This can give them significantly shorter lifespans than energy efficient radiators and they are not suitable for constant use. This is because the unenclosed elements can burn dust particles carried in the air which, over time, can cause wall blackening and damage to paintwork.
Innovative energy solutions for Nottingham Community Housing
An innovative energy project is well under way across Nottinghamshire, thanks to funds from National Energy Action (NEA). Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) received a charitable grant of over £350,000 to deliver the project, tackling fuel poverty in 74 properties across the county.
The funding, part of a national programme, the Technical Innovation Fund; Health and Innovation Programme, aims to facilitate community-level trials of innovative solutions utilising measures not traditionally within the scope of current fuel poverty and retrofit energy efficiency programmes.
Andrea Griffiths-James from NCHA said: “We are delighted to be awarded this grant to enable us to work with Green Vision Energy Ltd to deliver this energy saving programme.”
NCHA is committed to upgrading existing homes to improve energy efficiency and help reduce fuel bills for residents. The grant has funded the introduction of High Heat Retention, Smart Storage Heaters alongside further complimentary energy saving measures such as Voltage Optimisation; High Heat Retention Hot Water Cylinders and LED Lighting. Additionally, tenant training and tariff switching guidance has helped individuals to change old habits and save even further.
Jenny Saunders OBE, Chief Executive of NEA said: “This is a new and exciting programme for NEA. We know that the solutions to tackling fuel poverty require innovation and need to be tailored to local communities and this fund has given us the opportunity to test out a range of solutions.”
The work was completed at the end of September 2016; results will be evaluated during a two year monitoring programme to demonstrate the impact the project has made.
Boston Mayflower Housing Association Of Gas - Electric Heating
In 2015 Greenvision Energy were approached by Boston Mayflower Housing Association to look at replacing the heating system to two of their properties. We carried out surveys and talked with the tenants and housing officers to see what the main problems were with the existing systems, which were old storage heaters running on Economy 7.
The issues highlighted were:
No control over heat output, expensive top up heat used in the evenings, high pre-pay meter charges and condensation and damp issues
We proposed to overhaul the heating system and install Dimplex Quantum Smart Storage heaters, alongside Dimplex Qrad radiators in the bedrooms and a new Dimplex water heater. Every aspect of the project, from initial survey through to installation and tenant training was managed by Greenvision Energy and was carried out professionally and quickly by our team of experienced installers. We also carried out additional services such as tariff switching and energy saving advice to help the tenants save even more
Key features of our electric radiators
High-precision electronic thermostat accurate to ±0.1˚C Thanks to cutting edge technology all our radiators have high-precision electronic thermostats. This technology consists of a microprocessor and exclusive software which controls temperature variations to fractions of a degree. Less temperature variation and a more accurate thermostat means less energy used.
In built smart control functionThe smart energy saving functionality on our radiators keeps your room warm when you’re in it and saves you energy when you’re not by automatically reducing the temperature of a room if it’s not occupied.
Pre-installed programmes Pre-installed programming makes setting up your radiators quick and easy. You simply select the program that best suits your heating requirements. There are several programmes to suit most heating needs.
Open window detection If a sudden drop in temperature is detected because of an open window, the radiator will switch to minimum heating helping you to save energy and cost.
Wi-Fi Controlled HeatingWi-Fi compatible radiators give you have the flexibility to control your heating from your smart phone, tablet or laptop via an app. You can schedule times and set different temperatures, in any room, making sure energy isn’t wasted. The app will also give you a view of your electricity consumption and information on how to save energy.
ASP (anti-dust) technologySpecially designed paint stops dust partials from sticking to the radiators and making them easier and quicker to clean.
Smart Self-Learning Technology Our clever, self-learning electric radiators use an infrared sensor and smart technology to learn exactly how a room is used and your weekly routine. They’ll then intelligently programme themselves to provide a heating schedule to suit you. No need to spend any time programming them and energy savings too! /p>
Adaptive start heating With adaptive start functionality, your radiators will learn the optimum time to begin warming your rooms. There’s no need for you to guess when to preheat, your rooms will be at the right temperature by the start of the time they’re programmed to come on for.
