With the increasing cost of fuel and the desire to reduce carbon emissions, electric heating systems have become a popular choice for many property owners. These systems are efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly, making them a great alternative to traditional heating systems.
Electric heating systems work by converting electrical energy into heat energy, which is then used to warm your home or business. There are several types of electric heating systems available, including infrared, convection and radiant heating. Each system has its own unique advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to choose the right one for your specific needs.

Types of Electric Heating Systems We Work On
Electric heating systems are a popular choice for many homeowners due to their ease of installation, low maintenance, and energy efficiency. There are several types of electric heating systems available in the market, each with its own unique features and benefits. In this section, we will discuss the two most common types of electric heating systems: storage heaters and electric radiators.
Storage heaters are a type of electric heating system that stores heat during off-peak hours and releases it during peak hours. These heaters consist of a series of ceramic bricks that are heated up during the night using cheap-rate electricity. The heat stored in these bricks is then released during the day, providing warmth and comfort to your home. Storage heaters are a cost-effective option for homeowners who want to reduce their energy bills and have greater control over their heating system.
Electric radiators are another popular type of electric heating system that works by converting electricity into heat. These radiators come in a range of sizes and styles, making them a versatile option for any home. Electric radiators are easy to install and require minimal maintenance, making them a convenient choice for homeowners who want a hassle-free heating system. They are also highly efficient, as they can be controlled individually, allowing you to heat only the rooms that you need.
Maintenance and Repair
Regular maintenance and timely repairs are essential for keeping your electric heating system in top condition. In this section, we will provide you with some tips on how to maintain your electric heating system and how to fix common issues that may arise.
Regular Maintenance Tips
Regular maintenance can help prevent major issues with your electric heating system. Here are some tips to keep your system running smoothly:
- Clean or replace air filters regularly to ensure proper airflow and prevent dust buildup.
- Check the thermostat settings to ensure they are set correctly and the system is working efficiently.
- Inspect the electrical connections and wiring for any signs of damage or wear and tear.
- Check for any unusual noises or smells coming from the system.
Common Issues and How to Fix Them
Despite regular maintenance, your electric heating system may still experience some issues. Here are some common issues and how to fix them:
|No heat||Thermostat issue, blown fuse, tripped circuit breaker||Check thermostat settings, replace blown fuse, reset tripped circuit breaker|
|Insufficient heat||Dirty air filter, malfunctioning heating element, faulty thermostat||Clean or replace air filter, replace heating element, replace thermostat|
|Strange noises||Loose parts, malfunctioning blower motor, air duct issues||Tighten loose parts, replace blower motor, inspect and repair air ducts|
|System keeps turning on and off||Dirty air filter, malfunctioning thermostat, faulty wiring||Clean or replace air filter, replace thermostat, repair faulty wiring|
If you are unsure how to fix any issues with your electric heating system, it is best to contact a professional electrician like us to diagnose and repair the problem. Attempting to fix the issue yourself may result in further damage or injury.
Benefits of Electric Heating Systems
Electric heating systems are highly energy efficient, making them a great option for homeowners who want to save on energy bills. Unlike gas heating systems, electric heating systems convert all the energy they consume into heat, with no energy wasted during the heating process. This means that electric heating systems are 100% efficient, making them a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option for heating your home.
One of the biggest benefits of electric heating systems is that they can save you money on your energy bills. With an electric heating system, you only pay for the energy you use, which can result in significant cost savings over time. Additionally, electric heating systems require less maintenance compared to gas heating systems, which can further reduce your overall costs.
Ease of Installation
Electric heating systems are relatively easy to install, making them a great option for homeowners who want a hassle-free heating system. Unlike gas heating systems, which require gas lines and ventilation systems, electric heating systems only require an electrical connection. This means that electric heating systems can be installed quickly and easily, without the need for major construction work or extensive planning.
