Choose Tubular Heaters As An Affordable Solution
Fed up with the cost of your central heating? Have you tried a tube heater to warm your home?
As the economy grinds to a halt and up to 11 million Brits are furloughed, there’s never been a better reason to review the cost of your home heating bills. Around half a million UK households are set to receive a price hike of £103 as deals with their current energy suppliers expire at the end of the month. This information has been revealed in a new survey by USwitch which urges consumers to avoid this surcharge by moving to a cheaper plan. But why not use this as an opportunity to review your entire heating set-up and ensure that you’re using the most cost-effective solution to suit your needs?
The Downside of Central Heating
There’s no doubt that central heating has been a welcome addition to the domestic environment, but unfortunately it comes at a considerable cost to homeowners. When the cold season arrives, homeowners frequently find it a challenge to heat their properties effectively. As we rely on central heating, unfortunately we tend to have to use it for longer and set it at a higher temperature in order to fully warm the entire home. This has a tremendous impact on the wallet, particularly as the cost of energy soars annually.
However, if you don’t have any central heating running in areas of your home such as your conservatory, garage or loft space, then these spaces will also need to be adequately heated to prevent damp, condensation and mould from forming. Remedial action for these property problems can be incredibly expensive to fix, so it’s best to take a preventative approach to warming your home by using a gentle background heat. This can be achieved by using a tube heater setup to warm the property.
Cost-Effective Tubular Heaters
When you opt to use a tubular heater to warm a room, you’ll find that this is an incredibly cost-effective solution. The cost of using tubular heaters runs as low as half a pence every hour, per foot at 150W. This gentle background heat has a rapid warm-up time so it won’t take long for you to reach your desired temperature. A further way to save pennies is to select a tube heater with thermostat accessory so that you’re able to set the temperature you wish to achieve. When the room temperature dips below a predefined level, your tube heater will kick in.
In a smaller living environment, you might choose not to use your central heating at all. With careful placement of a few tube heaters around your home, you can be assured of an ambient temperature at an incredibly low cost. In larger properties, you may wish to use tubular heaters in combination with central heating to keep cold spots moderately warm during winter. You’ll find a tube heater to be a much more cost-efficient solution in comparison to storage heaters.
If the start of 2020 has been hard on your finances, then it’s time to review how much you’re spending on energy bills. Once you switch to a tubular heater, you’ll be amazed at the cost-efficiency of this solution – so why not try today?
