With more and more electricity being generated from renewables, Renewable Electricity sure does seem like the future.

In the past, fossil fuels like coal and natural gas were the main sources of generating electricity in the UK. These resources although worked out to be quite beneficial for us in generating electricity, are not renewable and hence their supply is limited. Electricity generated from renewables like wind, water and sunlight are slowly but surely dominating the electricity generation in recent times, and is a step in the right direction to attain sustainable living.

Phasing out Fossil Fuels.

 Understanding the detrimental effects of the use of fossil fuels on the environment, energy statistics show that we are on track to phase out the use of fossil fuels for electricity generation. In 2016, natural gas and coal accounted for 42% and 9% of electricity generated in the UK respectively. In 2019, the UK generated 38% of its electricity from natural gas and 1% from coal. And now only 29% of electricity is generated by natural gas and less than 1% of the UK’s electricity is generated by coal.

According to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s (BEIS) latest energy trends data published (2020) renewables’ share of electricity generation was 47% during the quarter, up from 35.9% in the first quarter of 2019. The proportion is also notably higher than the previous quarterly record of 39%, set last summer.

Gas and Electricity prices in the UK.

Currently, electricity is highly expensive as compared to gas. But as a commodity electricity isn’t vastly expensive than gas to produce. The higher levies put on electricity as compared to gas, is what makes the current price of electricity 3-4 times that of gas. From an economic standpoint, at the time taxing electricity higher than gas only increased the amount of revenue received by the Government in taxes, simply because all homes in the UK have electricity, but the same cannot be said for gas.

The government has announced that by 2025, all new homes will be banned from installing gas boilers and will instead be heated by low-carbon alternatives. The heating industry has moved away from burning coal for heat to gas (although coal was cheaper than gas) and now slowly but surely is switching away from fossil fuels like gas to renewable sources of energy (like 100% renewable electricity). This shift to electric can be seen in the automobile industry as well. This change is driven by the need to conserve the already damaged/polluted environment.

With the Government pushing the ‘Net Zero Carbon’ initiative, we could see them reviewing the levies put on electricity and gas, in favour of electricity to promote the use of electricity as compared to gas. These levies have already been reviewed in the B2B and commercial sector and we could see the UK Government doing the same for the domestic sector as well.

The Future is Electric.

 An independent climate research agency Ember (2020) state that the UK’s renewable electricity outpaced its fossil fuel generation for the first-time last year and could remain the largest source of electricity in the future. It revealed that renewable energy generated by wind, sunlight, water and wood made up 42% of the UK’s electricity last year compared with 41% generated from gas and coal plants together.

2020 was the greenest year on record for Britain’s electricity system, when average carbon intensity – the measure of carbon dioxide emissions per unit of electricity consumed – reached a new low, according to National Grid.

With the consumption of electricity in UK households increasing every year coupled with the phasing out of fossil fuels and the growing popularity of renewables shows that the generation of electricity using renewables is able to cope with the growing demand of electricity. Once all the related infrastructure is set up, we could soon enjoy 100% renewable electricity in our homes and live more sustainably.

From day one, Fischer Future Heat have advocated for the elimination of fossil fuels by going 100% electric. This electricity when generated by renewables, would help you reduce your primary and secondary carbon-footprint. Fischer have diversified from just selling dynamic electric radiators to numerous other efficient and electric products like Fischer Duo Boiler, Aquafficient, Aquafficient Eco+ and Solar battery, so that you find the perfect electric solution to swap your fossil fuelled heating. Hence, Fischer Future Heat is a great choice for environmentally-conscious customers.

Is Economy 7 a cheaper option than a Standard/Flat Rate?

Switching energy tariff can feel like navigating your way through a minefield. Flat rate, economy, fixed rate, variable – there are so many options, with often little explanation as to what they all mean.

One of the most popular options historically is Economy 7. Economy 7 is a tariff designed to work alongside night storage heaters and immersion heaters, offering 7 hours of electricity overnight at a lower price per unit.

Many people still choose to opt for Economy 7, as the overnight rate is “cheaper,” but is it really?

Historically, the night rate would be around one-third the price of the day rate. The night rate is now around two-thirds the price of the day rate – a significant increase in a relatively short amount of time.

Economy 7 Explained

Based on pricing from the top 10 largest energy suppliers in the UK, the average night rate (the price you pay overnight, usually midnight to 7am) is 12p.

The average day rate on Economy 7 (the price you pay for the rest of the day) is around 19p.

Ofgem, the UK’s regulator for the energy industry, estimate that around 42% of energy for Economy 7 users is at night, with the remaining 58% used during the day.

An average of these two prices, gives you an effective single rate of 15p per unit.

Where more than one electricity meter is installed, you will also pay two standing rates, rather than just one with a standard/flat rate.

Although the energy company are offering you a cheaper night rate, they are making up for their “losses” with a more expensive day rate.

Based on independent tests, conducted by BRE (Building Research Establishment), the overall consumption for maintaining a property at 21 degrees was as follows:

BRE TEST RESULTS
Source: BRE Test Report

1 & 2 – Dynamic clay core, temperature controlled heaters, 3 – Dimplex Quantum, 4 – Traditional Night Storage Heating, 5 – Gas Central Heating

Pricing Comparisons

As you can see from the chart above, the energy consumed by 3 (Dimplex Quantum) and 4 (Traditional Night Storage), would cost (at 12p per unit):

3 (DQ): 44.46kWh x 0.12p = £5.33

4 (NSH): 46.43kWh x 0.12p = £5.57


Based on pricing from the top 10 largest energy suppliers in the UK, the average flat rate tariff is 17.5p.

Again, based on chart above, the energy consumed by 1 & 2 (dynamic clay core heating), would cost (at 17.5p per unit):

1 (Dynamic Electric Heating, such as Fischer): 30.37kWh x 0.175p = £5.31

2 (Dynamic Electric Heating, such as Fischer): 28.03kWh x 0.175p = £4.90


These figures prove that opting for a reduction in energy consumption will always pay, rather than simply opting for a cheaper electricity rate. Consuming more at a cheaper tariff is not cheap. Consuming less energy will always save money.

Our energy partner, Outfox the Market, offer competitive standard rate tariffs. It’s quick and easy to get a quote, in 30 seconds or less.

A much wiser choice is to invest in energy efficient, controllable heating and hot water systems, which delivers a far greater degree of comfort. We at Fischer offer dynamic clay core electric heaters and efficient electric hot water solutions.

Fischer Dynamic Clay Core Radiators

Fischer dynamic radiators are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, only 11cm in depth and available in a classic oyster white colour. Manufactured to include a purpose built convection chamber in the back, their sleek, modern design does not impact on their efficiency.

But, Fischer dynamic radiators are not only slimline, they also offer many other benefits.

Along with the fact they are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, they are also designed to be efficient and controllable for complete comfort and peace of mind. They have even had their efficiency tested and verified by EST, BRE and BSRIA.

Our dynamic radiators also contain a purpose built convection chamber and patented 40mm chamotte clay core. Our 40mm clay core is DOUBLE THE DEPTH of the core found within many of our competitors’ heaters, which is usually 20mm. More storage resulting in more heat and more comfort.

Wi-Fi control options are available, allowing you to control your heating from anywhere in the world, all with the push of a button.

Aquafficient

Aquafficient is a modern, efficient and reliable way to heat your water. Using a single 3kW heating element and patented thermal storage technology, the Aquafficient provides instant hot water, as and when you need it, without the need for huge amounts of water storage. No yearly maintenance is required, taking away the stress of finding a plumber to check over your system and also eliminating the cost of doing so.

There is also no requirement for any extra valves or fixings, or even a water discharge pipe, meaning the installation of the Aquafficient is stress free and mess free, even in smaller or more difficult to access areas of your home.

Manufactured specially for Fischer Future Heat, the Aquafficient uses a natural salt-based thermal storage material to store its heat. Working in a similar way to a combi boiler, minus the expensive maintenance and running costs, there is absolutely ZERO water storage within the unit itself. The chance of a leak is almost non-existent.

You simply heat the battery once to get started and hot water is available in less than an hour. The thermal storage material stores heat, not energy, and as cold water runs through the highly efficient and robust heat exchanger, it becomes hot within seconds and subsequent warm water is fed to your appliances in less than a minute.

Our Aquafficient can store four times more energy than a domestic water cylinder in a unit half the physical size.

Not only does the Aquafficient give you a much more efficient solution when it comes to heating the water, it also saves huge amounts of physical space.

An Aquafficient unit, which provides 150L of hot water, is only HALF the height of an average 150L cylinder. If you have ever wanted to utilise that wasted space in your airing cupboard, now is your opportunity with this ideal replacement for other hot water systems.

Compatible with Economy 7, Solar PV and other types of renewable electricity sources, the Aquafficient is the way forward when it comes to saving the environment and improving your carbon footprint.

Based on recent testing, the thermal storage material within the Aquafficient has a life span of over 40,000 cycles before you start to notice any drop in efficiency. In layman’s terms, it can last for over 50 years without you EVER having to service, maintain or replace the thermal store or its contents. Even after the 50 years are up, all it takes is a glass of water to be added to the storage material to recharge it back to full health.

Aquafficient Eco+

Aquafficient Eco+

We are now pleased to introduce a new addition to the ever-growing range – Aquafficient Eco+, our brand new air source water.

Air source water heaters can be two to three times more energy efficient than a conventional water cylinder.*

Thanks to the special design of the compressor, hot water is available at 60 degrees centigrade and with a power requirement of less than 10amps, Aquafficient Eco+ requires only a standard 13amp socket to install.

Aquafficient Eco+ also contains an automatic anti-legionella disinfection system to remove the risk of legionella bacteria.

Much like the Aquafficient, it can be installed alongside a heating only boiler, allowing you to both heat your home and water efficiently.

You can also use Aquafficient Eco+ as a stand-alone hot water system, or even combine it with Fischer dynamic clay core radiators. The opportunities are endless.

Built with a stainless steel casing, 80mm of highly efficient insulation and finished in white, Aquafficient Eco+ has a sleek, modern design perfect for any home.

Wall mounted and floor-standing options are available, and the unit can be installed in a loft where possible, ensuring you save valuable space within your home.

Swith to Electric

Switch To Electric Heating : NOW May Be The Perfect Time

Today many households are concerned to switch to Electric Heating or Low Carbon heating because of the cost,

The above should be reasons enough to switch to electric heating. We do not need to look far, by following the example of how France has addressed its energy needs by nuclear and now ever-increasing renewables then we can certainly follow their lead and make our country powered by zero carbon fuels. The government need to invest now in the infrastructure and whilst there would be a sizable investment to make it will help us all in the future to have relatively stable prices for Energy. At the moment our Energy prices are volatile due to where they come from. Gas and oil prices are determined by world markets and if there is a major event in any part of the world the prices fluctuate. If we can reduce this fluctuation in wholesale price, then all of us can benefit from fair and stable prices.

 Energy companies do not make massive profits on selling energy to our homes, in fact this is clearly evidenced by the number of Energy companies that have gone bankrupt in the last 3 years. The only way we can all have stable energy prices is by producing and using our own Electricity. This is a project for the Government to make the investment so that we all can move away from Fossil fuels by not making us pay too much for the change.

The main reason households are reluctant on this change is due to the cost. However we all currently pay levies for carbon on our energy bills. In the recent budget the Chancellor has increased levies on Gas and frozen the levies on Electricity. The effect of this would be an increase in Gas prices for households. This will make Electricity more attractive to use for heating and hot water.

Today many households are concerned to switch to Electric or low carbon heating because of the cost, however it is clear that whilst there are many early adopters who are making the difference and switching now, the fact is we all  need to switch and it is not IF  but WHEN . To reduce carbon you must also insulate your home which will result in cheaper Energy bills. If you lose less heat from your home the cheaper will be your running costs.

Fischer offer several solutions for clean home heating that will help decarbonise your home and environment and keep us warm for the future.

Choosing The Right Tariff

When it comes to choosing the right heating for your home, it is important to also choose the right energy tariff.

Whether you are switching to Fischer heaters from gas central heating, night storage heaters or even another form of electric heating, making sure you are paying the right price for your energy is vital.

With a Fischer heating system, a majority of your electricity usage will now be during the daytime. With a night storage system, no matter when you require the heat, the initial charge is always through the night. Because of this, your tariff will be designed to provide cheaper energy overnight, with a slightly higher price per unit throughout the day.

With night storage heaters, energy is wasted when nobody is in the property during the day, which is why many people switch to our controllable electric heating.

Windmills Clean Energy

Because our heaters work on a wireless thermostat, with the ability to program the hours you would like your rooms to be warm, they will only start to heat when required. This is often in the daytime. For this reason, ensuring you are on the most cost effective daytime tariff is vital.

For example, with your Economy 7 tariff, you may pay 18p per unit throughout the day and only 10p overnight. This is perfect for a night storage heating system, however with Fischer heaters – it’s not ideal.

Instead, with a flat rate, you could pay around 14-15p per unit in the day, which over a week or a month could be a considerable saving.

For Aquafficient users this is even more imperative. An existing cylinder would generally charge up overnight, also on the cheap rate, however there are many reasons users decide to remove their cylinder. Aquafficient boasts improved efficiency and less heat loss than most domestic cylinders, but the tariff needs to be right.

Once again, a flat rate tariff is the way forward. For low water users, a timer may also be ideal to limit the amount the Aquafficient recharges, potentially saving you further money on your energy bills.

With the right tariff, you can ensure your Fischer heating system is efficient and cost effective.

Our energy partner, Outfox the Market, may be able to offer you a competitive rate. They also offer an exclusive tariff for all Fischer Future Heat customers.

The Future is Electric

The Fischer Smart Home – Transform your home in to a smart home and help reduce carbon emissions

Think Electric!

We’ve been telling you for months that the future is electric, and it’s becoming more and more apparent that the future is also renewable. Industry giants are finally waking up to the fact that we must take immediate action to help save our environment.

A study conducted by the Solar Trade Association, Loughborough University, and Advanced Further Energy has found that by installing solar PV, battery storage, and intelligent controls, along with electric heating and electric vehicles can significantly reduce your carbon emissions and help towards a cleaner future for our country.

Here at Fischer Future Heat, we can offer you everything you need to turn your home into a smart home and do away with outdated technology.

Store Your Own Electricity

Back in February, we launched our own line of solar panels and battery storage, offering the complete package for any homeowner looking to invest in renewables and power the future with clean energy. It’s like we’re always telling you – the future is electric, even more so following the most recent budget from the government, during which the Chancellor announced the gas levy will rise.

Before we know it, we will all be reliant on just electricity to heat and power our homes, and by installing solar panels and battery storage now, you can be ahead of the curve. In fact, the government has already banned the installation of gas in new build properties from 2025 and all types of loose house coal from 2021.

Fischer Solar & Battery Storage consists of a highly efficient solar PV system, running in conjunction with revolutionary battery storage technology.

The key part of our system is the battery. With a standard solar PV system, any energy you generate which is surplus to requirements is sent back to the grid and lost forever. You then have to buy it back when you need it at your unit rate, provided by your energy supplier.

 

Instant Hot Water

The Aquafficient by Fischer is a modern, efficient, and reliable way to heat your water. Using a single 3kW heating element and patented thermal storage technology, the Aquafficient provides instant hot water as and when you need it, without the need for huge amounts of water storage. No yearly maintenance is required, taking away the stress of finding a plumber to check over your system and also eliminating the cost of doing so.

Manufactured specially for Fischer Future Heat, the Aquafficient uses a natural salt-based thermal storage material to store its heat. Working in a similar way to a combi boiler, minus the maintenance, there is absolutely ZERO water storage within the unit itself. The chance of a leak is almost non-existent.

The thermal storage material stores heat, not energy, and as cold water runs through the highly efficient and robust heat exchanger, it becomes hot within seconds and subsequent warm water is fed to your appliances in less than a minute.

Our Aquafficient can store four times more energy than a domestic water cylinder in a unit half the physical size.

Not only does the Aquafficient give you a much more efficient solution when it comes to heating the water, but it also saves huge amounts of physical space.

The road to zero carbon

Fischer dynamic radiators are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, only 11cm in-depth, and available in a classic oyster white colour. Manufactured to include a purpose-built convection chamber in the back, their sleek, modern design does not impact on their efficiency.

But, Fischer dynamic radiators are not only slimline, but they also offer many other benefits.

Along with the fact they are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, they are also designed to be efficient and controllable for complete comfort and peace of mind. They have even had their efficiency tested and verified by EST, BRE, and BSRIA.

In fact, EST said, “In an Energy Saving Trust field trial of five properties, where traditional electric storage heaters were replaced with Fischer Future Heat Dynamic Electric Storage Heaters, householders reported feeling more comfortable and at the same time maintained an indoor air temperature that was an average of 0.7°C lower suggesting that less energy may be required to maintain desired levels of comfort.”

Our dynamic radiators also contain a purpose-built convection chamber and patented 40mm chamotte clay core. Our 40mm clay core is DOUBLE THE DEPTH of the core found within many of our competitors’ heaters, which is usually 20mm. More storage resulting in more heat and more comfort.

Wi-Fi control options are also available, allowing you to control your heating from anywhere in the world, all with the push of a button.

Smarter Energy Tariffs.

That, paired with our new and exclusive Economy 12 Anytime tariff an industry-first tariff offering 12 hours of cheaper off-peak renewable electricity to Fischer Future Heat customers only, you can make use of off-peak electricity for longer, all of which is generated form UK offshore wind farms.

Renewables - Powering the Future

Renewables – Powering The Future

Why Renewables are powering the future. Renewable energy sources have been on the market for a long time, and home solutions such as solar panels, saw a massive boom in the early 2010’s, mainly due to the introduction of the feed in tariff.

The feed in tariff was a financial incentive, to encourage home owners to generate 100% renewable energy from the empty space on their roof. Now that the feed-in tariff is no more, and has been replaced by a rather lacklustre alternative (SEG), the focus has shifted.

The driving force is no longer financial gain. Instead, it’s all about saving our planet. Scientists have been warning us for years that we’re heading down a rocky path in terms of climate change, but people are finally waking up to the somewhat scary outcome if we don’t make serious changes.

But not only are renewable energy sources on the rise, fossil fuel powered energy sources are on the decline.

According to a report by BP, a world leader in energy generation, carbon emissions in 2019 grew by a mere 0.5%, “less than half 10-year average growth of 1.1% per year, partially reversing some of the unusually strong increase in 2018 (2.1%).”

Global oil production fell by 60,000 barrels per day on average, with Iran leading the charge with a decline in production by 1.3 million barrels per day on average.

Natural gas consumption grew by only 2%, “well below the exceptional growth seen in 2018 (5.3%).”

Coal, one of the most common fossil fuels you will come across in the United Kingdom, saw its consumption fall by 0.6% and its share in primary energy fell to it’s lowest point in 16 years.

But what about the increase in renewable energy?

BP also reported that, “renewable energy (including biofuels) posted a record increase in consumption in energy terms (3.2 EJ). This was also the largest increment for any source of energy in 2019.”

Renewable energy is on the rise and now is the time to act. No longer can we ignore the increasing need to save our planet, and with the government banning loose house coal and certain types of firewood from 2021, it’s the perfect time to future proof your home.

You can read the full report on BP’s website (https://www.bp.com/en/global/corporate/energy-economics/statistical-review-of-world-energy.html#).

Here at Fischer Future Heat, we can help.

Back in February, we launched our own line of solar panels and battery storage, offering the complete package for any homeowner looking to invest in renewables and power the future with clean energy. It’s like we’re always telling you – the future is electric, even more so following the most recent budget from the government, during which the Chancellor announced the gas levy will rise.

Fischer Solar & Battery Storage consists of a highly efficient solar PV system, running in conjunction with revolutionary battery storage technology.

The key part to our system is the battery. With a standard solar PV system, any energy you generate which is surplus to requirements is sent back to the grid and lost forever. You then have to buy it back when you need it at your unit rate, provided by your energy supplier.

By installing our system, you have the ability to hold on to your excess energy in a battery and use it at a later time. By doing so, you can utilise as much as 80% of the generated energy, as energy is only sent back to the grid once the battery is full.

Solar Battery
Renewables Powering the Future

With those warm and sunny months approaching, installing your system now means you can make the most of this summer and generate as much energy as possible before that cloud coverage returns.

But never fear, as the panels rely on PV and not heat to generate the energy, they will still generate electricity during the colder months, even with some cloud coverage.

Our team of trained surveyors will carry out a free, no obligation survey to ensure you receive only the best in solar and battery technology and make the most of your roof space. We even carry out a virtual survey prior to the on site visit to calculate exactly how many solar panels you can install on to your roof.

Renewable energy is the future, which is why we have partnered with energy supplier Outfox the Market to offer an exclusive tariff to all of our customers, powered by 100% renewable electricity. – They are also offering the cheapest fixed price tariff in the UK.

The future is electric.

What are the benefits of a wireless thermostat?

Control

Wireless thermostats can bring a range of benefits to your home heating. Find out how in our latest blog.

Both heating and comfort are connected in one way – they are all about control. Without control, your heating and your comfort are all down to guess work.

Outdated night storage heaters rely on a prediction the night before – do you need heat the following day? Who knows! We all know how unpredictable the British weather can be, and can go from a lovely hot sunny day to a cold downpour of rain in a matter of hours.

Fischer Smart Wi-Fi Control

By having to decide the night before whether or not you need heating the next day, you’re leaving yourself open to not only waste energy, but to have the heating on when you don’t need it.

By introducing a temperature controlled and programmable thermostat in to your life, all of this guess work disappears instantly. No longer do you have to worry about your comfort 24 hours in advance.

If you wake up and it’s cold, simply pop the heater on via the thermostat. If you feel as if you need a bit of extra heat, simply turn up the temperature. Staying in for longer than expected? Extend the heating program!

Control is the future of heating, and without it, your comfort levels are significantly decreased.

Choosing the right thermostat Benefit of Wireless Thermostat

This is all well and good, but what is the best type of thermostat, because believe us, there are many different types.

A lot of companies offer an integrated (or “built in”) thermostat. This gives you the ability to change temperatures and programs, but there is one major flaw. The temperature reading is taken directly at the heater.

Naturally, as the heater is the main source of heat for that room, taking a temperature reading directly at the heater means you’re measuring the temperature in the warmest part of the room. Nobody wants to have to sit right by the heater to feel comfortable like you do with a fireplace, so why take a temperature reading from there?

Enjoy the Benefits of a Warm Living Room

Wireless 

This is why a wireless thermostat is much better when it comes to comfort and accuracy. With a wireless thermostat, the room temperature is read wherever that thermostat is located. For example, if you know your living room has a cold spot, if you position the thermostat in the cold spot, that is the temperature reading the thermostat will take. This means that when your heater comes on to follow your heating program, it will not stop heating until even the coldest part of your room is warm, ensuring an even heat distribution throughout the whole area, not just directly next to the heater.

 There is also the added convenience of being able to adjust your heating program and comfortable temperatures right from the sofa (or anywhere else in the room). Nobody wants to miss that crucial part of the soaps by having to get up and fiddle with a heater on the opposite side of the room to the TV. With a wireless thermostat, you can be sat on the sofa and be in full control of your heating system.

It also ensures that anyone with a physical ailment can still be comfortable. A majority of heaters with an integrated thermostat will have the thermostat positioned either on the side of the heater or right at the front. The issue with this is firstly, that thermostat will never be at eye level, and you will have to bend or crouch down to see it. Secondly, you may want to put furniture around the heater but can’t because it would obscure the screen and you’d lose the ability to control the heater.

 This is yet another issue a wireless thermostat overcomes. As the controls are all in your hand, you’ll never need to look at the heater again.

 

All in all, a wireless thermostat gives you more control, more peace of mind, a more even temperature and even more comfort.

Heating Without The Need to Touch – Fischer Dynamic Clay Core Radiators

Brrrrr…is the heating on?

Ever walk in to a room and have to walk over to the radiator and physically touch it to see if it is warm? If you have ever had central heating in your home, you will know exactly what we are talking about.

 But it’s not just central heating that leaves you feeling unsatisfied and uncomfortable. Oh no, it can happen with all forms of heating, especially outdated night storage heaters and other inefficient electric alternatives.

It’s Science

It is scientific fact that the most effective way to feel warm is by combining both radiant and convected heat. Radiant heat can be felt close to the source, but does not spread throughout the room, leaving you without that even, comfortable level of heat you desire.

Remember sitting around the fire as a child to keep warm? That’s because there is no convection – only radiant heat!

By using a form of heat that only radiates heat and does not convect, you often have to check to see if your heater is warm by physically touching it. That tells you that your heating is not distributing the heat, leaving you cold and disappointed and that form of heating may well be a complete waste of time!

The Solution

With Fischer dynamic clay core radiators, you will never have to touch your heating system ever again. Not only do our heaters come with the advantage of a fully wireless programmable thermostat, allowing you to remain in control from anywhere in your home (or anywhere in the world with our Wi-Fi option), our heaters are also designed to give you the best of both worlds, combining radiant and convected heat.

 All Fischer dynamic clay core radiators include our purpose built convection chamber. This convection chamber allows the heater to provide a much more comfortable level of heat, often heating a room to your desired temperature in under 45 minutes. Sounds much better than a 7 hour charge of a night storage heater, right?

 To allow the purpose built convection chamber to work, our clay core is situated towards the front of the radiator, creating a space at the back for convection. This is the convection chamber we talk about.

 As the clay core is positioned towards the front, the level of radiant heat is increased. Pair that with the superior convection and you’re set to be comfortable all winter.

The Future of Home Heating

With the effect a Fischer heater can have on your home, you will be able to walk in to a room and know instantly that your heating system is doing the job, without touching a thing. You will feel a comfortable level of heat instantly, and you won’t have moved a muscle!

 After a short while, you will forget your old ways of touching your radiator to make sure it’s warm. Fischer heaters will give you peace of mind, allowing you to sit back and relax, never having to worry about your heating system again.

Our programmable thermostat can be programmed for every hour of every day to a precise temperature, meaning you can come downstairs in the morning for breakfast and your home will be at the exact temperature you desire.

We’re challenging you – does your heating system leave you needing to touch to confirm its warmth? If so, it might be time to make a change! Fischer dynamic clay core radiators are the change you need.

“A good heater is one where you feel the warmth in the room, removing the need to touch your radiator to confirm its warmth.”

The Future is Electric

The Future is Electric. It is good for the Environment.

We believe the future is electric and we have been saying this from day one when we started this company. The pressure is on government bodies now more than ever to do something about Climate Change. The UK, like many countries, is assessing the ways it can make changes to reduce its carbon footprint. One key factor is the way we produce our energy.

The Future is Electric and not one with Fossil Fuels that pollutes our environment

Fossil Fuels Failing

Fossil fuels are no longer a viable way of producing energy as our planet’s resources deplete and our environment suffers the consequences.

Fossil fuels emit harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) for every unit of heat generated. Considering there are millions of gas boilers installed in the UK, you are looking at a lot of pollution being pumped into the environment every year. The government has already announced it will ban gas boilers in all new homes by 2025 and that is only the beginning.

Time to change

Whilst the higher powers debate on how to change the course of climate change, it is important that we all play our part in this challenge. The easiest way is to start from home, are you guilty of using a Gas boiler to heat your home, despite the harm it may be doing? It’s also not the most efficient form of heating so you may be paying more in the form of wasted energy/heat.

It’s time to consider a change, Fischer Future Heat are the experts in electric heating solutions and our teams have produced the perfect products for your home. Have a look below:

Fischer Solar

Harness the power of the sun in your home. In our fight against climate change it is important we make use of our renewable energy sources. The cost of wind and solar generation is becoming more and more accessible. Switching to renewable electricity avoids massive waste due to inefficiency and avoids massive negative externalities we are already paying for. Our German-engineered Solar panels boast improved shading resistance, anti-reflective glass technology and advanced busbar design to reduce losses.

Pair this with Fischer’s battery storage so you can keep any excess energy generated rather than sending it back to the grid. By doing so, you can utilise as much as 80% of the generated energy, as energy is only sent back to the grid once the battery is full.
