    I just found this thread, so I joined MSE so I could post.
    We took out our night storage heaters and the Economy 7, and put in Rointe heaters and switched to a Standard electricity tariff.
    Our electricity bills have more than doubled.
    I wish I had found this thread 15 months ago, it would have saved me a lot of money.
    It cost us over £4k to put all the heaters in, and now our bills are huge.
    I am posting this here so that other people can find it hopefully, and avoid making the same mistake that I did.

    We have asked repeatedly to have a thread explaining the issues with switching away from E7 NSH to direct electric heaters as a 'sticky' but we always seem to go unheard.

    Very good of you. You could have just walked on by, but you took the time to make others aware.

  • PS Today's poll is obviously inspired by the real question I was asked and tweeted about last night.

  • Not all firms have panels and HR teams. There are many very small businesses out there without such resources :) https://t.co/cLo0zO7Yqu
