    Heating a small flat

    Heating a small flat 3rd Oct 10 at 8:41 PM
    My son and his friend, both students, have recently rented a small flat which, for some strange reason, only has electric 'off peak' storage heating in the two bedrooms (I've bought them both hot water bottles and switched the heaters off!) The only heating provided in their tiny sitting room is an electric convector heater which is eating up the units and providing very little heat. They only need instant heat for very short periods of time as they're not at home too often. Any suggestions as to what they can use which might save them some money?
