When temperatures drop and home heating systems kick into life, it can often be easier to consider warmth and comfort over energy efficiency and money-saving potential. However, as energy prices rise and the cost of living crisis endures, consumers need to opt for home heaters that not only combat the cold but also provide much needed energy-saving benefits to reduce household energy bills and minimise environmental impact.
Heating and cooling your home makes up around 45-50% of your total energy bill. So, if you want to start saving money during the colder months, it's time to start looking at your heating appliances. Standard electric heaters have always had a reputation for being costly to run - but times and technology have changed. Right now there's an array of smart and modern electric, fan, infrared and portable heaters on the market that will provide heat and help you to keep energy costs down at the same time.
If you live in a flat, rented accommodation, a small home or apartment where central heating is impractical or impossible to install, then an energy-saving heating solution is essential. Similarly, remote working spaces, offices and working from home setups will also benefit dramatically from smart heaters that you can simply switch on to start enjoying fast, effective heating when you need it most.
Not only will you benefit from an energy-efficient method of heating but the 'smart' element to these heaters will allow you to control your heater via a smartphone app: setting schedules, enjoying effortless voice control, intelligent temperature monitoring and much, much more.
