The central heating is powered by the boiler and its gas meter that provide a lot of water running through your house to warm up the various radiators. However, the new modern heating systems are now completely revolutionary, aiming to be completely energy efficient and to save you some money (And the environment too)!
Literally, central heating is called so as it has one single heating source (The boiler) which heats up the whole house. Electric central heating has the same functions, but with an electric boiler.
On the other hand, if we consider the general meaning, we can consider it as the electric heating system that heats the whole house.

Electric Central Heating
The electric central heating as we mean it is based on the idea of having one single heating system heating the whole house. However, with more flexibility and greater comfort.
Having electric radiators warming up your house would allow you to install an energy-efficient system that allows total planning and control.
Every electric radiator is Wi-Fi controlled and has a thermostat built-in which allows constant temperature control ensuring to not overheat the room or waste energy.
Every electric radiator acts as a single unit, which means that you can choose to heat up only the rooms you are using the most, leaving the rest for occasional use. But, don’t worry! There is no need for too much planning or waiting.
The electric radiators heat up really quickly and allow you to turn them on from wherever you are thanks to their smart features.
Electric Central Electric Heating could be a great option only if:
• You don’t want to heat your guest room all the time, or in Summer, you want to heat only your towel rail;
• You want to save energy, money, and the environment;
• You like planning your days and you want your life to be hassle-free;
• You don’t like wasting time – or money – on maintenance.
Traditional Central Heating
The traditional heating is composed of one boiler, powered by gas, and a gas counter. It has water inside which gets warmed up and pumped all-around your house into the radiators. The radiators warm up and then heat up the room.
The whole process requires an incredible amount of power and hard work for the boiler from the start to the end. This, indeed, would make the energy consumption higher. In addition, some power is also wasted in the process, reaching just about 80% efficiency (if the product is new).
Traditional central heating has been around since 1970 and, at the moment, represents one of the main sources of pollution due to the source of its power, but also to its inefficiency.
Meaning, it is true that the cost is minor due to the low cost per unit of gas, but it is also true that a lot of it is lost in the process, and that it is wasted for radiators and rooms which are never used, regardless their size.
The traditional heating system could be a great option only if:
• You consider only the gas price per unit, which is lower than the electricity price;
• You don’t consider the maintenance costs and frequency;
• You need to warm up EVERY room, every day. Regardless of the season or the time of the day;
• You don’t care about the waste created, which damages your savings and the environment.
