What are the Benefits of Electric Heating?

With the global increase in action against climate change, more and more people are becoming open to the possibility of going all electric (or maybe going hybrid). Switching to electric heating is one of the easiest and most effective ways to cut your carbon footprint and having a positive impact on our planet.

But what are the benefits of electric heating? We’ve put together some of the main ones…

Lower your carbon footprint (when powered by a renewable energy source)

Our planet is in danger.

Our carbon emissions and excessive use of fossil fuels is suffocating our planet and having a massive negative impact on it.

When fossil fuels are burned, carbon dioxide is released in to the atmosphere.

This carbon dioxide is then trapped, unable to escape and holding in heat from the sun, contributing to the earth’s ever rising temperature.

By switching to an energy supplier who uses 100% renewable electricity and using it to power your electric heating system, you can cut your heating carbon emissions to ZERO (at the point of use).

You may still use fossil fuels to power other appliances throughout your property, but heating is one of the main things people use in their homes for 50% of the year.

By completely eliminating your heating carbon emissions, you are already doing more than most people to help our planet thrive.


Have you ever set your thermostat on the central heating system in the hallway in hopes it will evenly heat each room? You probably have and it’s nowhere near as accurate as individual room controls.

By using one central control (much like with gas or oil central heating), you only get to decide the exact temperature of the hallway but you have no say on the rest of your home. Doesn’t sound very exciting, does it?

With Fischer radiators, as well as many other electric heating brands, you have one thermostat per room, allowing you to accurately set your desired temperature for that room, and that room only. This gives you much more control and in turn, increases your level of comfort.

Perfect for a cold autumn or winter.

No maintenance

Boiler servicing – messy, costly and inconvenient. Having to take a day off work so someone can dismantle your boiler and mess up the airing cupboard. What a waste of precious time.

With electric heating, you never have to do this again. No servicing or maintenance makes electric heating one of the most hassle free home appliances on the market.

Not only does it save you time and hassle, it also saves you money, with the average boiler service setting UK homeowners back approximately £72 a year. Electric heating allows you to completely eliminate this cost.

Any saving is a good saving, right?

Noise free

Ever woken up in the early hours of a winter morning to clunks and bangs from your boiler powering up the heating system?

Annoying, huh?

Well with electric heating, you don’t have any pipework or boilers to worry about, meaning you can relax in peace.

No disruptions, no noise, no hassle.

A silent way to heat your home and stay warm through the colder months.

Of course, there are many other benefits to electric heating, but these are just the ones we think are most exciting.
