Guernsey Electricity uses a specialised controlled system which enables storage heaters to warm up their bricks within the low rate of the Economy 12 tariff for 7 hours overnight and sometimes 2 hours in the afternoon. It is then the customer’s responsibility to set the storage heater to the settings they require. Storage heaters work best in reception rooms, hallways, landings and kitchens.

Electric convector heaters are ideally suited to bedrooms where the amount of heating time required is usually only a couple of hours in the morning and a couple of hours in the evening. Utilising a timer allows you to set ideal on and off times for heating of the room.
Convector heaters do not store any heat in the radiator and therefore are not ideal for reception rooms, hallways, landings and kitchens or where property insulation levels are poor.
