A modern replacement for night storage heating which is a very popular alternative electric heating for flats is ceramic core heaters. This technology has been engineered over the years in Germany to maximise its efficiencies and keep running costs to a minimum. These german electric heating systems combine the benifits of being able to store heat with a rapid response which is thermostatically controlled.
These heaters have an embeded element inside a clay core which heats up in just 5 minutes giving you a warm room within the first half hour of use. This is comparible with Gas central heating systems. Once the heater is up to temperature the thermostatic control works to maintain the requested temperature. Modulating the power to maintain the heat in the core of the unit gives excellent running costs as the heater is not constantly drawing electricity.
ELKAtherm® who have been manufacturing electric heating in Germany for 60 years have developed their heating design to give maximum heat distribution. The deeply fluted design with 5x surface area gives an excellent combination of radiated and naturally convected heat so you don’t get cold spots within the room.
