PROS OF STORAGE HEATING
The main advantage of storage heaters is that they can be cheaper to run, if set up and installed correctly, compared to other types of electrical heating. The newer, automatic generation of storage heaters now come with a built-in thermostat which allows for the release of heat, as and when it is needed, depending on the external temperature. This could mean you save on your electric bills, as you may use less energy when heating your house in comparison to older models. Storage heaters are extremely quiet , even those with an inbuilt fan and easy to maintain.
CONS OF STORAGE HEATING
As storage heaters run off electricity, and rates have increased over the last couple of years in comparison to gas, they can be more expensive to run than gas central heating. They are typically only found in households that are situated in high rise buildings or those that are not on the national gas grid. There can be a fair amount of heat and energy wastage. With the older models excess heat is stored and released the following day, even if it is a warm and the heat is not required. This can lead to overheated rooms, but by the evening, much of the stored heat has been released, when in fact this is usually when most people want to increase the heat output.
Lot 20 is the name given to a certain subdivision of items covered by the European Ecodesign Directive. I’m sure that would be really useful information if you know what that is but since you’re reading this blog I’ll assume that you don’t. And why would you? It’s not on the news all that much and even if it was it doesn’t exactly have the type of name to stick in your memory – I told you there were no fun acronyms here. We’ll refer to it as the Ecodesign Directive from hereonin for lack of something flashier. The Ecodesign Directive exists to set a bunch of rules and requirements that all energy-using and energy-related products in the EU must comply with.
That covers pretty much everything that you can plug in, everything that pings, buzzes, lights up, or does a dance – your boiler, your dishwasher, your lightbulbs. Their job with these pinging, dancing, energy-using consumer items it essentially to create a baseline of energy efficiency below which they can no longer be manufactured. That old Nokia you had back in your school days which charged for 20 hours and stayed alive just long enough for a single game of snake? By modern standards that would constitute a drain on European energy generation and the Ecodesign Directive would be having none of it.
Because of the enormous scope of the Ecodesign Directives remit they separate legislation in to ‘lots’. Lots and lots of lots (classic EU energy legislation humour). Lot 20 covers the wide spectrum of local space heaters, which includes storage heaters, electric radiators, infrared heating panels, underfloor heating and a few other bits and bobs along those lines. What does Lot 20 say?
Lot 20 states the new minimum efficiency rating for all local space heaters, although confusingly this varies somewhat depending on the system they use to work. The efficiency is calculated based on the energy saving technology utilised by the product, so a low scoring heater could be an old style low budget storage heater with basic dial controls and inaccurate internal mechanical thermostat. Effectively Lot 20 is attempting to take a step away from manually and fallibly controlled temperature regulation and towards smarter systems.
Most electric heaters will begin with a baseline rating of 30% efficiency, though ‘fixed electric’ heaters such as infrared and electric radiators will be set at a 38% minimum. Portable electric space heaters, and storage heaters below 250w also have different specifications. While products falling below these minimum standards can still be sold, they’re no longer permitted to be manufactured. This will ensure that people are not longer buying the lowest performing electric heating, but rather investing in technologies like infrared and smart thermostats that use less energy more effectively with lower running costs.
