Probably won’t be able to take up E10 again if I didn’t stay with them. Then again, it’s not a good deal anyway.
Not sure how much work is involved swapping companies and electricity rate/tariff.
I can easily turn off the storage heater but it obviously has it’s own circuit and time switch. Would be handy if I can still run it on standard rate if other options don’t work out. Eventually would like to get rid though.
General advice is keep using it as it’s quite efficient but it’s dated, tatty and I’m unable to
clean the cupboard it’s in due to possibility of hazardous materials.
Only option is individual units.
Would need several for a three bed semi detached although I’ve read it’s better to have them downstairs and electric radiators upstairs.
Not sure how much heat leakage there is with the Quantums. Just thinking of when a room is warm during the day and a bit chilly in the evening.
I’ve contacted Dimplex and Elnur about their storage heaters. Looks like the Elnurs can be
user programmed to switch charging on/off. I think the Dimplex work from the E7 times only.
They have a WiFi model now. Useful as I don’t suppose a single wall mounted thermostat can be used as per central heating.
