Trying to keep your home warm during the winter months can be very difficult, especially if you haven’t got the option of gas or you can’t have conventional radiators installed.
In which case an electric heating system may provide you with the solution you've been looking for. They don’t produce any smoke or fumes and can be installed in areas of your home which pipework can’t reach.
If you are looking for a convenient and energy efficient solution to keep your home warm during the colder seasons, an electric radiator setup can be a great choice. While you can use electric radiators to heat the entire house, they can also be used as a source of additional warmth in the places where you need it most and offer the option of just heating one room at a time while keeping those heating costs down.
There are many benefits of installing an electric heating system, this type of heating system doesn’t require gas or a source of fuel to operate. You can also easily adjust the temperature and even set a specific temperature in each room, and the radiator will automatically turn on and off as required.
When installing an electric heating system, you will need to know the total BTU of the room of which the radiator is going to be installed in. This is the amount of energy that is required to heat the room.

You should also consider the flow rate of the electric radiators when installing them. The flow rate determines how quickly an electric radiator can heat up the room. The room can be heated faster if you install an electric radiator with a higher flow rate. You can also consider other factors when installing an electric radiator such as the mounting type, colour and design of the radiator when looking for a suitable one.

Electric radiators are a convenient and energy efficient solution to keep your house warm during the winter months. They can be used to heat the entire house or just areas where you need, electric radiators do not produce any harmful fumes or gases, and you can easily adjust the temperature. They can be installed in a wide range of places in your house, including wet or low-ceiling areas.

There are different types of electric heaters on the the market today here are few options that you can have installed within your home
Blow heaters, or fan heaters, use an exposed wire element to heat up the air, which is then blown out into the room.
Convection heaters also use an exposed wire element to heat the air, however, they have no moving parts and rely on the natural rising and falling of warm air to distribute heat.
Infrared heaters or radiant panels use radiation (infrared heat) to emit warmth. This method relies on heating walls, surfaces and people directly rather than air volume.
