Electric heating


Admittedly, electric heaters are not the first choice when building a house. From power generation to the heat source, the heater usually has a poor efficiency, which is also reflected in the price: Gas and oil heating systems are usually cheaper to operate than the electric radiators. Nevertheless, electric heaters have their raison d'être.

Oil and gas heating places higher demands on the supply infrastructure. For the installation, heating pipes have to be laid and central heating has to be purchased. This results in a high initial investment. Nevertheless, centralized heating systems have prevailed.

Electric radiators are more commonly used in niche solutions. For chilled warmth, a stable power supply is the only requirement. Electric heating is the heat source of choice, especially for seasons. Holiday homes and allotments are here at the top. Electric radiators are installed wherever there is a power connection. Gone is the time of the electric heating radiator, which stands as a block in the living room and smothers every atmosphere in the bud. Flat panel radiators are state of the art in electric heaters today. They are installed flat on the wall and are very unobtrusive due to their restrained design. For small living spaces so ideal!

Can electric heaters be economical?

The electric heaters have a poor efficiency compared to conventional heating systems, has already been mentioned above. But those who are looking for a fuel-efficient version under the electric heaters, must be disappointed. Finally, panel radiators convert electricity into heat. They succeed quite efficiently, but due to the high cost of electricity, electric heaters remain very uneconomical.
