Summer Heating Tips with Electric Heating Expert

Summer house and dogThe British weather may be unpredictable, but if the Easter weekend is anything to go by, then scorching temperatures are almost certainly just around the corner for us all to enjoy.

Although it’s easy for us to forget about the importance of maintenance and care for our electric radiators, whilst we are out in our back gardens enjoying family BBQs or hosting a summer party for our neighbours, summer is the perfect time for us to reduce our energy consumption.

Moreover, by following some of the summer heating tips that our experts have suggested, you can also significantly reduce your electricity bills and ensure that your radiators are in the perfect condition for the colder temperatures come autumn.

Spring Savings

If you are considering purchasing your first electric radiator then make sure you check our post here, to ensure that electric is the right option for you. Should you decide that our range is the perfect option then make sure you take advantage of our Spring sale where you could save up to 5% if you purchase one of our radiators from our Vantage or Economiser range before the 7th May 2019.

Small Changes

Why not take advantage of the warmer weather by turning down your heating or alternatively switching it off all together? Should you still require a little extra warmth, perhaps in your conservatory, garage or holiday home, then thanks to the sensors that are already built-in to our electric radiators, the device will automatically detect when a window or door is open and thus switch off.

Get Technical

In addition to their built-in sensors, our Vantage and Economiser ranges can also be used in conjunction with a mobile app that provides peace of mind and freedom when you are away for extended periods of time - perhaps when you go away for a seaside break or to stay with family.

Periodical Checks

Should you decide to completely switch off your electric heating for extended periods of time, as mentioned above, make sure you carry out regular checks by switching the radiator on and off periodically. This will ensure that everything is functioning as it should and enable you to address any issues that may crop up prior to the freezing temperatures returning.

Fully Flexible

If you do require heating within a small area, then remember to utilise your electric radiator as it can either be mounted onto a wall or alternatively moved around the room as a freestanding device.

The beauty of the above is that, unlike standard central heating systems, one of our electric radiators is perfect for providing small surges of heat without heating the entire property. Not only will this save you money in the long term, but it will also provide a secondary source of heating, should you have guests to come and stay around Christmas or throughout the winter time.

By following some of the above tips, you can help to reduce your family’s energy bills, ensure that your heating keeps you warm when you need it most and use your additional savings for some Sangria, Tapas or a day trip out for the little ones.

Heating Tips for Your Caravan/Mobile Home

caravanIf Brexit has left you seeking a traditional seaside holiday along the Cornish coast or perhaps down to Dorset where the children can enjoy building sandcastles on the sandy beaches, then you may also be wondering about keeping your family warm should temperatures suddenly drop.

With this in mind, our dedicated team at Electric Heating Expert have put together a few tips to help you heat your mobile home or alternatively keep your holiday letting warm for your guests when they come to stay.

Portable Electric Radiators

Caravans and even mobile homes can be very compact, so if you find yourself seeking a solution to your heating requirements, without compromising on space, then one of our electric radiators may be a great option for you.

Unlike conventional storage heaters, our electric radiators from our Vantage and Economiser range are slim-line, portable, affordable and easy to install. Moreover, they can also be put into storage should you no longer require them - helping to free up more space for when you invite those guests around for a glass of wine.
Alternatively, if you want to avoid damp then our mobile app will also enable you to control your heating remotely.

Solar Panels

Whilst the weather lately has been rather chilly, after the scorching heat that we all saw over the Easter holidays, solar panels can still be a great generator for heat. This is because they can help you to reduce your impact on the environment and save money by enabling you to build up a reserve without using up all of your gas.

Insulation

This option is typically considered for heating our homes during the winter months, but insulation in our mobile home can actually keep your caravan cool as well when temperatures soar throughout the warmer months.

Awnings

Depending on exactly how cold it is, a caravan awning can be a great way to enjoy sitting outside as well as providing some additional space and storage for your bikes or a table and chairs. Awnings can also offer shelter from the elements such as rain.

Sunlight

The great thing about sunlight, one of nature’s many gifts, is it’s free and can help to heat up your caravan by simply opening your curtains or blinds and letting that glorious sunshine pour in. Alternatively, should you find it unbearably hot then all you need to do is pull the blinds back down.

Double Glazing

Just like our regular homes, mobile homes can also benefit from double glazing for those cooler evenings and receive protection from the elements come winter time.

Cool Options

British weather can sometimes bless us with a few heat waves, so should you find yourself dreaming of cold showers, a bottle of cold beer or an ice cream, then our Economiser radiators will automatically adapt to your desired room temperature regardless of the season. Thanks to the adaptive start function, which will anticipate exactly how long it takes to heat up your caravan based on the ambient temperature, you don’t have to lift a finger.
