Electrical heating = Superheating!

In physics, superheating is the electrical heating phenomenon in which a liquid is heated to a temperature higher than its standard boiling point, without actually boiling. It creates an explosive boiling eruption when moved or touched projecting exceptionally hot fluid into the air.

A very interesting concept and something, that quite frankly, you want to avoid, unless…

Guernsey has just introduced a ‘Superheat’ tariff specifically for localised electric heating. This tariff (approx. 8p per unit) differs from the other price cut tariffs as it is available 24 hours, (although this is not to be used on a continual 24 hour loop – see Guernsey Electricity website for more details).

This tariff changes thing substantially. If you can hook up your boiler, digital radiators, bathroom heaters and underfloor heating systems to this new lower tariff (our standard tariff is over 17 pence – yes, that’s correct, permission to have a lie down) your utility bills suddenly become sizably less and your home becomes beautifully warmed.

The difference is also to do with the quality of electrical heating solutions now available. In this efficient, digital age, we expect stylish and economic solutions without a massive price tag – well luckily enough, this expectation has been managed with the range of incredible heating systems available. Every colour, technical gadget and efficiency saving included, these fabulous heating solution are the way to go.

So heat your home with whatever colour, type and style of heating solution you choose, but remember hook yourself up to the new tariff and then you can consider yourself officially ‘Superheated’.

How to Save Energy and Money on Heating Bills

How to Save Energy and Money on Heating Bills

One way to try and cut down on living expenses is through your heating bills. With increasing utility bills, households are looking at ways to save energy. In this article, we will explore some of the most effective and easy to implement methods of reducing money spent on heating.

5 Ways to save energy and money on heating bills

 1. Energy usage

The first step to reducing heating bills is to take a look at your energy usage. Most people are aware of the impacts regulating energy usage can have. If you are not, then timing your thermostat to heat your home only when you are around allows you to easily identify the impact on energy savings. Monitoring your energy consumption helps you understand where you are going wrong. Often, this just means turning the heat down gradually

2.Smart thermostats

It is worth investing in a thermostat that also allows you to monitor your energy usage. Some ‘smart thermostats’ can control the heating on behalf of the householder, constantly keeping the home at the right temperature, effortlessly. Smart home technology is becoming smarter and more user-friendly, transforming heating cost-efficiency in houses. The new technology for homes offers an opportunity for busy people attempting to reduce their heating bills by doing it on their behalf. A good thermostat, and preferably a smart thermostat equipped with WiFi, saves on heating bills over time. You can see the impact after about six months, when the cost savings really begin to kick in. Smart thermostats optimise the heating in your house, and are a certified means of ensuring that you are not wasting energy. There are some excellent examples of these thermostats on the market. Warmup’s 4iE Smart WiFi Thermostat is good value and promises to save the same amount in energy a year as the device itself costs. The 4iE Thermostat can save up to 25% of your energy usage by learning the most efficient way to heat your home.

3. Insulate

One of the key aspects to pay attention to when seeking to curb your energy usage is to prevent the warmth at home from escaping. Good insulation ensures you save energy and no energy goes to waste, keeping heat loss to a minimum. Do consider investing in double glazed windows, a reinforced insulated front door, and insulated walls. Insulation means that your home heats up quicker, using less energy and keeping the warmth inside. This allows you to reduce the number of hours your heating is on per day.

 

4. Consider installing underfloor heating

Underfloor heating is known for its cost-efficiency. It is also an ecological heating system because it runs at a much lower temperature whilst still reaching the same (if not higher) comfort level than conventional radiators, thus using less energy. Another reason is that it reaches the desired room temperature quicker, providing evenly distributed heat across the room. Warming the room from the ground up means that underfloor heating heats the people in the room as opposed to the air. Therefore, no energy will go to waste.

 

5. Little changes that make a difference

Although investing in a smart thermostat and double-glazed windows pays off in the long term, there are other ways you can also save energy. As simple as it sounds, drawing the curtains at dusk prevents heat loss, i.e., wastage of heat. Pulling the curtains tight in the evenings and at night is a ‘first line of defence’ to keep the heat in.
