    Advice re economy 7 and storage heaters

    Advice re economy 7 and storage heaters 13th Apr 09 at 12:43 PM
    Hi everyone,
    I'm new so forgive me if this has been discussed before.

    I'm currently redecorating my one bed flat and need to replace my storage heaters. I only have electricity so gas is not an option.

    I got rid of the immersion heater and got it replaced with a 12 kw electric multi-point heater that heats up water instantly. The reason why I got rid of the immersion heater was that it took so much space and the water pressure was ridiculously low.

    Now I'm not sure whether I should switch from economy 7 or not, as in reality I don't think I'll be using much of the night time electricity, washing machine is too noisy to be left overnight but I do have the dishwasher at night sometimes. I used to have two storage heaters, one in hall and one in the living room, the one in living room stopped working so I've been using the plug in oil filled radiator for the past couple of years and the one in hall has been thrown out when I got rid of the immersion heater.

    So now, my question is, should I get a replacement storage heater and stay with econ 7 or is there an alternative that I can use and possibly change to a standard tariff?
    While looking for storage heaters I came across this one so was hoping that someone would be able to advise if it they would be any good?
    Can't post the link but they are called intelligent storage heaters at cnmonline.
