Frequently Asked Questions
Are electric radiators expensive to run?
Electric radiators have the ability to rival all heating systems including gas central heating. How you might ask? Despite gas being available at a cheaper rate than electricity, electric radiators can still operate much cheaper than gas central heating or storage heaters as they offer exceptional energy efficiency and precision control.

What is the difference between dry thermal and fluid thermal radiators?
Dry thermal technology sets itself apart from fluid thermal radiators in that there is no liquid, meaning no chance of leaks or ongoing maintenance. On top of this dry thermal technology posses a more responsive heating performance, where as outdated fluid thermal radiators take a considerable length of time to warm up and a substantial period to cool down. Fluid thermal radiators are also extremely heavy since they contain liquid making them unsuitable for installing in certain rooms or stud walls. Dry thermal electric radiators are lightweight, versatile and offer increased controllability and performance.
