Frequently Asked Questions
All West Country Heating products are 100% efficient.
There is no definitive answer to this question, as it depends on the lifestyle and usage of each user. In addition, tariffs from providers do vary. However, a number of independent companies have carried out research monitoring energy consumption, product performance and running costs for properties within Scotland. They concluded that there were significant efficiency savings when using direct acting electric radiators instead of night storage heaters.
No. Our Electric Radiators are direct acting electric radiators. However, due to the internal construction they do have the benefit of partial storage. The advantage of West Country Heating’s direct acting electric radiators is that you have the opportunity to operate the heating system to suit your lifestyle.

Yes, good loft insulation, double-glazing and draught proofing is essential to help cut heating bills, no matter what type of new heating you choose.
No, not always because the Economy 7 daytime tariff is usually on a far higher inflated rate, which means that the overall cost could be much higher than being on a normal daytime tariff.
Unlike typical night storage heaters our heaters do not require a fan. Our heaters can distribute their heat evenly across a room effectively without the need for a fan, which means they make no noise.
