Electric Radiators vs Gas Central Heating?
I’m in the process of buying a renovation project and the house currently doesn’t have central heating or even gas to the property. The house is currently heated by open fires in each room (the original 1930’s fireplaces) and the water is heated via an oil fed Aga.
I’ve looked into getting gas to the house and we are looking at approx £1,000 for the connection plus the cost of the boiler/radiators/etc, so likely around £5-6,000.
I was wondering if anyone here has gone down the route of electric radiators instead of gas central heating and how have you found them in terms of running costs/efficiency? How do you heat your water?
I can’t justify the cost of an air source heat pump so that’s not on the cards.
