/ economy 7 heating
Anyone got or had this?? any good?
Storage heaters are complete unmitigated shite.
Avoid, unless you like having to decide today if you will want heating tomorrow.
Gas central heating remains the best, IMO.
Equatorial in the morning, arctic by evening, and it still costs an arm and a leg to run. I can't understand why anyone ever thought this might be a reasonable way to heat a place - you're better off with a blanket and a candle!
20 years ago. It was rubbish! It keeps the chill off, just. sometimes.
Pretty useless is you work all day, needs another heat source (like a gas fire).
Works well, warmer in the morning than you would want, but keeps its heat through to the evening. It has a boots function to warm the room up in the evening if you need it, but I never use it. It has a fan to get the last of the heat out, which is noisy, but not a problem.
One downstairs, one small one upstairs + an electric blanket and we are fine.
We have electric wet heating. A 10kW heater heats our normal rads. Cheap to install and running costs compatible with oil, cheaper than bottled gas. Not as cheap as mains gas but that's irrelevant.
We had storage heaters when we moved up here, in rented house. They were on a special tariff with 5hr overnight, 2hr afternoon, 3hr evening. They were never cold and they had fans to boost heating rate.
