Fischer Storage Heater, of nominal 2.2k! capacity, with dimensions 1300mm x 610mm x 110mm.
The test was requested by Fischer Future Heat UK and was conducted during July 2013. The wireless receiver was replaced with an updated version on the radiator body by a representative of Fischer Future Heat UK before the tests were conducted.
The objective of the test was to determine the total heat input over a 24 hour period into the Fischer Storage Heater, while measuring the room temperature at various heights in the centre of the room, while providing cooling loads to simulate outside temperature. Maintaining an indoor room temperature at 21˚C for 16 hours and a night time temperature of 16˚C for 8 hours. With a minimum outside temperature -1˚C and a maximum outside temperature of 10˚C.
Our wireless thermostats can provide a 42% reduction in energy per hour.
The heater tested had a wireless receiver on the side at low level and a thermostat transmitter/sensor on the opposite wall. It consisted of an electrical heater within a fireclay structure, encased in a steel fluted (finned) case.
The total power input to the Fischer Storage Heater during the 16 hour test period was 14.05kWh; therefore the Fischer Heater uses 14.05kWh over 16 hours = 0.87 kW per hour
Fischer’s Wireless Thermostat
Low Energy Consumption Using Wireless Climate Control
FISCHER ELECTRIC STORAGE HEATER RUNNING COSTS WITH WIRELESS CONTROL
It also offers a better control of the heat output based on room temperature control, bringing in even more potential savings by eliminating wastage, especially during the spring and autumn months. The level of comfort in each room is vastly improved by maintaining an even temperature during the day and night which is something that the old night storage heaters fail to achieve. Improved comfort and lower bills thanks to the low Fischer electric storage heater running costs.
Unlike other heaters we do not measure the temperature at the radiator but instead our wireless thermostats measure the temperature of a room away from the radiator, giving you a better heating control and ensuring you feel the warmth everywhere in the room.
Fischer will only use 14.05kW to heat your room for 16 hours when the outside temperate is -1˚C. A night storage heater requires more than 20kW throughout the night to produce enough heat to achieve the same room temperature.

Improve Fischer Electric Storage Heater Running Costs
Heating from cold will always cost you more, not only because it takes longer but because you have more to heat up. When you turn your heating completely off, you allow the fabric of the property to cool down. Consequently when you turn the heating on in the morning, the heat is first absorbed by the fabric and then by the air. Keeping your heating on a background temperature (as opposed to switching it off) will avoid such issues and keep your consumption to a minimum.
The below flow chart shows how Fischer German heaters temperature controlled thermostat helps reduce energy consumption when applying the above principle. As displayed, the heater does not have to lift from a lowered temperature, therefore reducing the amount of time spent consuming from the electricity. Following this method will improve your Fischer electric storage heater running costs.
