After being quoted £5,800 to heat 2 rooms by an alternative company, I found similar heating for 3 rooms with Electric Heating Expert for just over £1,200. Excellent product, easy to install and nice warm rooms with professional advice over the phone and no hard sell tactics. Thank you and a very happy customer.

The economiser radiators are well made and great value for money. Service was excellent and ability to discuss requirements and best sizes was great.

I bought a Vantage radiator as my flat is all electric. I wanted something that was modern in design and energy efficient that would be easy for me to install without having to pay for an engineer. The room is only a small bedroom but the Vantage 600w radiator pumps out heat and allows me to use it on a low setting, saving electricity. The thermostatic timer is excellent meaning I only have heat when I want it at a temperature that is suitable for the climate. I was able to ‘plug and go’ and hang the radiator with just a couple of easy install brackets. In summary it surpassed my expectations for cost effectiveness and modern ergonomic design. Electric Heating Expert website was clear and the ordering process and delivery were just what they said it would be. Thanks EHE!

Bought the largest size radiator for our well insulated outbuilding. Best price that we could find on the internet, exceed expectations as radiator was available for delivery by the carrier a day earlier than expected. 20 mins to install and with 3 pin plug no electrician required (bonus!). Understanding the programming guide took a while longer… We are now tracking the running cost but it seems to be cost effective so far. Would happily recommend product and service to anyone considering a purchase.

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the customer service that I recently received from Electric Heating Expert. As a Procurement Director, I spend most of my time dealing with suppliers and the quality of service that was provided by Tony at EHE was by far the best that I've experienced for a long time. A fault in a product was rectified immediately, the tracking of deliveries is excellent and the technical advice was spot on.
Company Response : Thanks Mark. We really appreciate your feedback and are happy that the service has been good. I can see that you sent us a warranty claim form and believe that the matter is in hand.

I found your firm online andI left a telephone message which was promptly returned by one of your staff who helped me to assess the size of heater that was required to adequately heat my front room.
It was delivered on time and the delivery man was kind enough to put the heavy heater in the garage for me.
It has been installed and is functioning as it it should, and has solved the problem of inadequate heating in my front room.

I looked around for quite a while before I went for Electric Heasting Expert for an Electric 2kw high efficiency radiator and room thermostat. Ordering was easy and secure and delivery was exactly as promised on the correct day. The radiator wasn't installed for around 4 weeks after arrival and I did hit a glitch with the RF Receiver (my fault). I called the firm, got an immediate reply and had a clear set of written instructions to correct the issue by email within 5 minutes. The radiator and room thermostat work really well. Would I use the company again - certainly - good service and great aftersales assistance.

What’s the Difference Between Electric Radiators and Electric Panel Heaters?

It’s often said that the world of technology never stops moving. And while we all know that’s true of things like phones and computers, it’s also true for electric heating products. There are always new innovations being made, and you could be forgiven for being a bit confused! But by the end of this short guide to electric heating, you’ll have all the information you need to make an informed decision.

Radiation and Convection

Let’s start with the simple part. An electric radiator radiates heat stored within a heat-retaining medium, usually thermal fluid or ceramic. Think of it like how the sun radiates warmth; if you step into the shade and therefore out of the direct radiation, you feel less warmth.

By contrast, an electric panel heater or "convection heater"; heat the air circulating within an enclosed area. (If you can smell the heat, you're likely experiencing convection heating. The smell exists because, just like a toaster, the panel heaters heating elements are exposed to the air, and so, burn the dust particles floating about in it.)

Just to Confuse You…

After having explained this difference to you, we’re going to confuse you a little. This is because an electric radiator and an electric heater both use a combination of radiated and convected heat. However, while an electric radiator has a thermal retention medium fitted (which is what stores the heat and redistributes it), an electric heater doesn’t.

But a lot of that might not matter to you. All you really want to know is which one you should buy. Well, it really depends on what you want to use it for.

Everyday Vs Occasional Use

The economic choice of electric radiator or electric panel heater for your room mostly comes down to deciding if the room is for everyday or occasional use.

Because electric radiators store heat, they are ideal for use as the primary source of heat in those rooms you use every day, or for long periods of time (e.g. a living room or bedroom). But electric panel heaters are ideal for those rooms that only get used occasionally (like a guest bedroom or conservatory), so don’t need continual heating.

In terms of upfront and running costs, electric radiators are cheaper to run but cost more to buy initially. Electric panel heaters are cheaper in the beginning, but cost more to run. This is because electric panel heaters don't store heat, and so continually draw upon the power supply whilst they heat the air. By contrast, electric radiators require power only whilst they are heating up the storage medium. You can see our comparison on pricing here. At Electric Heating Expert, we provide a wide range of electric radiators to suit any room, any size and any budget. For more information, just take a look at our range or get in touch with us today.
