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.

Are Air Source Heat Pumps Suitable for UK Homes?

Air is all around us, so it makes sense to utilise it to heat our homes. Twenty years ago, an air source heat pump was relatively unheard of in the domestic world, but times have changed, and they are all the rage.

The question is – how well do they perform in UK homes?

One of the greatest benefits of air source technology is the fact no carbon is produced when in use, but installing an air source heat pump is not just plug and play.

You have to consider the pipe run from the external pump, the electric connections, the electrical demand on your property, the water storage tank that must be installed inside the home – the list goes on.

Air Source Heat Pump Fan Outdoors

An air source heat pump works on the premise of taking in air, extracting the heat, sending that heat in to a refrigerant, and generating more warmth through compressing said refrigerant.

The air is inducted through an external fan, which sits outside of your home. The external fan unit is usually rather large, causing issues when it comes to choosing a position for its installation.

In the winter months, the UK gets very cold, with temperatures often dropping below zero. Inducting air at a cooler temperature will force the supplementary element to kick in to boost the temperature, significantly reducing the benefit of an air source heat pump altogether.

Even with the element kicking in, the maximum temperature output for a heating loop from an air source heat pump is around 65 degrees. From a boiler, the water temperature for a heating loop would be over 80 degrees. Even the warmest of people would notice a significant difference in temperature between an air source heat pump and a boiler.

In an attempt to combat this issue, many people either oversize their radiators, or run the air source heat pump alongside a secondary form of heat, again negating the benefits of an air source heat pump.

With the kW requirement of an air source heat pump often in excess of 10kW, having enough spare electrical load in a domestic property is often difficult, further adding to your woes.

A good level of insulation is also vital in an attempt to retain as much heat as possible. Most UK homes are not air tight enough to use Air Source heat pumps for heating.

A recent report by the Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA) also states that a, “majority of UK homes are not suitable for a heat pump.”

Despite all of that, air source technology is a very efficient way of heating water for use in showers, baths and sinks.

Hot water is something we require 365 days a year. Whether it is for washing or cleaning, it is something we all need.

For years now, we have been offering efficient hot water solutions, including our Aquafficient range.

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.*

Benefits of Hybrid Heating with Fischer Future Home Heating

The Benefit of Hybrid Heating

Do you know the Benefit of Hybrid Heating ? The most common view is that central heating systems are efficient, however when you understand the laws of physics and how heat is produced and transferred within a central heating system, you realise there are more efficient ways of heating your home. However most homes in the UK would have to make a greener transformation, replacing gas and oil boilers for electric ones. The advantage the electric boiler has is that it’s nearly 100% efficient in producing the heat, but because the central heating systems use heated water to heat the air, the transfer of heat is not 100% –  it’s close to 75%. With that being the case, we believe the better way of heating homes that already have central heating, and that want to make a transformation to zero carbon by using electricity, is to go the hybrid way. Let me explain what the hybrid way is.

Benefit of Hybrid Heating explained

Most existing homes would have their central heating on for 2 hours in the morning and 6 hours in the evening- the issue with that is that the remaining 16 hours is unheated, which means the temperature of the house drops within that period. If you start your heating at 6am, your house may be at 10 degrees Celsius; so to shift the temperature from 10 to 22 degrees Celsius would take a long time, and cost a lot of money. This process is again repeated in the evening. The hybrid way would be, in an average 3 bedroom property, to install just two temperature-controlled storage heaters to maintain the property’s temperature at 15 or 16 degrees Celsius. Therefore, when you stick to your central heating programme of 2 hours in the morning and 6 hours in the evening, your boiler would use less energy and warm your home quicker, giving you greater comfort. This is particularly useful in the UK, where temperatures can fluctuate even in winter, as much as 8 degrees colder or warmer. If you have a temperature-controlled storage heater, your starting temperature is always 15 or 16 degrees, despite outdoor temperatures.

The myth of having two different heating systems in one home means it will cost you more is not true. What matters is the temperature you heat your home to everyday- that’s what will determine the cost. You may say “but then why can’t I keep my boiler on so that a 15 degree temperature is maintained at all times”. You could do that, but it’s not efficient because heat transfer on that is 75%, due to heat being transferred from water to air. Whereas temperature-controlled storage heaters heat the air directly- this reduction in the number of energy transfers increases efficiency to 100%. When you consider that for 16 hours of the day, where you’re likely to be keeping your home at 15 degrees Celsius, it is better to use temperature-controlled storage heaters.

Ways To Live More Sustainably

Ways To Live More Sustainably

Increasing each one of us have to find ways to live more sustainably. Sustainability by definition is the avoidance of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance. As our global population has grown exponentially within the last 75 years, the demand for certain finite resources has grown, and the rate at which we are using finite resources or polluting the environment to meet this demand is negatively affecting the environment we rely on to sustain life as we know it. It’s going to take a lot more than an individual’s actions for the entire world to be living sustainably, but collectively as consumers, we have the power to change what we demand. Here we’ve listed 7 ways to live in a more eco-conscious manner.

 

Following these steps goes a long way to live more sustainably

 

01. Eat Less Meat

The meat and dairy industry generates as much greenhouse gas emissions as all automobile emissions combined. The western diet is very heavy with animal products, and increased consumption of meat has been linked to obesity, cancer, and heart disease. The fact that eating less meat both helps the environment and our own health makes it a no-brainer. We’re not saying everyone should adopt a completely meat-free diet overnight, however reducing our overall consumption, perhaps by doing meat-free Mondays, would be a great idea.

02. Don’t Waste Food

In the UK, we throw away about 6.6 million tons of household food waste annually – of the 6.6 million tons we throw away, almost three-quarters are the food we could have eaten. Ways to reduce food waste include using products in the order of the closest use by date or freezing leftovers. This not only helps the environment but saves you money too.

& Ways to Live Sustainably

03. Cycle, Walk or use Public Transport where possible

Apart from having zero carbon emissions, cycling and walking are obviously great forms of exercise, so if you’re able to cycle or walk to work or wherever you need to go, it’ll help to improve air quality for all of us..

Cycle, Walk or Public Transport

04. Use Reusable Alternatives

There has been a big push for this in recent years, with people wanting to move away from single-use plastic. Supermarket chains now charge for carrier bags, and many coffee shop chains and restaurants have switched from plastic straws to paper straws. Plastic is essentially non-biodegradable and will remain in the environment for millions of years, taking up space in landfills and even getting into ecosystems, killing many species that are already under threat.

05. Recycle and Reuse

This isn’t anything revolutionary, we all know about the importance of recycling to decrease the rate of depletion of natural resources. Buying second-hand is an easy way to avoid being wasteful, but if not, there are more and more new brands popping up that are selling sustainably made or sourced products.

06. Use Renewable Energy

The use of renewables is growing, from wind to solar, they produce electricity with virtually zero carbon emissions. Shifting from fossil fuels to renewables will reduce air pollution and stop further environmental damage caused by global warming.

Use Renewable Energy

07. Grow Your Own Produce

If you have the time and space in your garden, growing a variety of products means that you’re relying less on imported supermarket produce, which has a much greater carbon footprint.

Ways To Live More Sustainably - Ways to Grow your Own Produce

Consistently we settle on decisions in our lives that influence the climate, the environment, and different species. Our planet can just create a limited number of assets – from food to water – and can just withstand a specific level of ozone-depleting substance discharges to remain solid. We just have one Earth and are totally subject to it for our endurance and prosperity. So we all must find and practice ways to live sustainably. We at Fischer Future are building products to find ways to prosper on our planet and use its resources more sustainably – in a way that doesn’t degrade the environment – for the benefit of ourselves and future generations. The Road to Zero-Carbon has begun. Are you on Joining in?

Electric Central Heating vs Gas – Fischer EB

Which is better Electric Central Heating or Gas. Which one is better for UK Homes.

There are over 26 million gas boilers installed in homes and offices around the world, but many people don’t realise that despite being extremely popular, they are not necessarily good for our environment

Along with many other activities, carbon dioxide is released when we burn fossil fuels to power our homes and industry. Coal, oil, gas and other types of fossil fuels are all culprits.

Carbon dioxide in our atmosphere holds heat. This prevents the heat from exiting our atmosphere, causing the global temperature to rise. Methane given out by landfill sites absorbs and traps 20% more heat than carbon dioxide, causing even further problems.

With government officials and independent bodies worldwide pushing for lower net carbon emissions and cuts on pollution and harmful processes, gas boilers are becoming a thing of the past.

Our Fischer EB requires no servicing or maintenance and doesn’t even need a flue or a chimney, allowing for a much more stress free installation and day to day running. Fit and forget.

With many gas combi boilers, a central thermostat is offered and is usually wall mounted in a hallway. As this thermostat only takes a temperature reading from the central point of your home, the only area which will ever get up to your desired temperature is the hallway.

With Fischer EB, there is even the benefit of the wireless thermostat and programmer, allowing you to have full control of your boiler from anywhere in your home. If you position the thermostat in the coldest part of the home, the boiler will not stop heating until even the coldest part is warm, meaning the whole house will be at your desired temperature

Electric Central Heating with Fischer EB

There is also the added bonus of less water storage in the Fischer EB, reducing the amount of water and energy you waste by heating the stored water that you may not use. Electric Central Heating is best for UK Homes.

 

Zero emissions at the point of use, no maintenance or servicing and a more controllable, comfortable heating experience.

 

The Future is Electric™ and We will help you get there.

What happens

What happens during a Fischer Future Heat survey?

We are often asked “What happens during a survey? “

As you may know, here at Fischer Future Heat, all of our pricing is calculated by one of our trained heating engineers during a free home survey. Rather than publishing a price list on our website, we want to make sure you are quoted for exactly what you need to heat your home.

By offering this free, no-obligation survey, our heating engineers can take into account any heat losses, cold spots or things that may impact the level of heating you require. You can’t do that with an online form!

But before you book your free no obligation survey, it doesn’t hurt to understand exactly what happens during the survey

Step 1 – Understanding your needs

Once our engineer arrives, at the time and date you discussed with our friendly appointment makers, they will first try to gain an understanding of exactly what you need.

Whether it’s a brand new heating system for the whole house, just a heater for a conservatory or a new hot water system, our engineer can advise you once we know your requirements.

The heating engineer will also show you more about the product, including images, samples, optional extras and our exclusive wireless thermostat.

Understanding your Needs

Step 2 – Measurements

Now our heating engineer understands what you need, they will take time to accurately measure each individual room you wish to heat with Fischer dynamic clay core heaters (or the cupboard space if you enquired about the Aquafficient). They will take into account the length, width, and ceiling height of the room and calculate from those figures, the exact kilowatts of heating each room needs to be heated efficiently.

Our heating engineer will also look for, and take into account, any heat losses, vents, cold spots, or cold areas to make sure your room stays toasty and warm if you choose to install the Fischer system.

They will even ask you exactly where you would like to install each heater. You will also be advised on what they believe would be best, based on their vast experience in the heating industry.

Explainng the Quotation

Step 3 – Explaining the quotation

Now our heating engineers know exactly what you need based on their measurements, observations, and calculations, they will show you our price list so that you can understand the price of the Fischer dynamic clay core heaters.

Once you have had a look through, they will provide you with the price for the heaters you require, along with dimensions and specifications. They will also discuss with you the optional extras we can provide and the cost of doing so.

Step 2 – Your Decision

The price has been discussed, the measurements have been taken and the system has been explained to you. Now, it’s up to you. If you choose to proceed with an order, our heating engineer will discuss the options moving forward and put everything in place for your heaters to be manufactured and subsequently installed.

If you need more time to think about the decision, or would rather not proceed, our heating engineer will leave you with his contact details and a written copy of the quote.

It is then up to you how you would like to proceed and you are under no obligation to do anything you don’t want to.

Step 5 – What Happens in Delivery and Installation

If you chose to go ahead with an order, you will be contacted to arrange an installation date and time, which fits in with you.

Our NICEIC registered electricians or Gas Safe plumbers will install your new system and fully explain how everything works, ensuring you are ready to use the Fischer system through the colder months.

Following the installation, our friendly customer service representatives and knowledgeable technical support team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
