Is Electric Heating Expensive to Run?

Electric radiant heating is by far the most effective method to comfortably and efficiently heat your home, office or business premises, both in terms of cost and performance.


Electric Radiant heaters come in many forms to suit your unique setting, including:

  • Radiators
  • Panel Heaters
  • Ceiling Heaters
  • Outdoor Heaters
  • Underfloor Heating
  • Overdoor Heaters
  • … and more

Due to the constantly fluctuating nature of electricity rates (electricity costs are measured in kw/h), as well as other variables such as size of premises and the number of heaters installed, it is difficult to give a general estimate of electric heating costs, as it is essentially unique to your needs.

However, what is certain is that electric heating is a cost-effective choice, particularly over fossil fuels such as gas or coal, and provides users with controllability and energy-saving options to keep your heating costs to an absolute minimum.

We explore these options below.


Use Less Energy & Save Money

Smart Controllability to 0.2˚C

Built-in PID controllers ensure temperature accuracy to 0.2˚C through a control loop feedback method that controls the heating element. With the ATC Smart Range, you can control your electric heaters remotely through the ATC Heating App to ensure heaters are only on when needed, and temperatures are accurate and customisable.

Eliminate Wasted Heat

Open Window Technology enables selected ATC heaters to automatically detect a fall in temperature caused by open windows, suspending any programmed heating to prevent wasting energy. Thus, keeping your heating bills to a minimum!

Customise to your Schedule

Using the Adaptive Start Feature, you can program ATC electric heaters to turn on and heat certain rooms at certain times, to suit your lifestyle or business needs. Simply programme the desired temperature, and the heater will calculate the required time needed to reach that temperature – only turning on in the time needed to reach the programmed temperature.

Landlord Mode

If you are a landlord, hotel owner, or property manager, you can make use of Landlord Mode to limit tenant / guest control of electric heaters. Using this feature, you gain complete control and visibility of each heater remotely – with information on whether heaters are on or off, what setting they are in and how much energy they are using. If needed, you can change settings to ensure best performance at any given time.


Further Benefits – Maintenance & Support

Once your electric heating system is installed, there is little to no maintenance required.
