The prices utilities are raising by the day and many people are finding it difficult to pay their utility bills. Energy companies are trying their best to allocate the limited resources they have. To manage scarce utilities like electricity energy companies have introduced variable pricing. Charges for utilities such as electricity vary depending on the time of use. Utility providers usually charge a higher tariff during peak hours.
This is essentially to discourage people from using utilities during peak hours which reduce the pressure on the limited resources. Usually during off-peak hours charges for utilities are lower when compared to charges during peak hours. Charges of utilities like electricity are lower during the middle of the night. Electric night storage heaters are designed to take benefit of this difference in pricing structure. These heaters generate heat during the night when the charges are lower. These heaters use the heat generated in the night to heat the homes during the day.
Working of the electric night storage heater is simple. The timer is automated and it turns on the thermostat in the middle of night when the charges are minimal. The thermostat in turn sends the electricity into the elements which heats up the bricks. The thermostat continues to send electricity to the heating elements until the desired temperature is reached. Once the temperature is reached the thermostat turns off. The insulation in the heater prevents the heat from leaking. However, despite insulation some heat does escape the storage heater.
Most night heaters available in the market are designed to heat only a single room. Electric night storage heaters can store up heat for a given amount a time, and then release the heat during a specific time. There is a flap on the side of the storage heater which passes the hot air into your room. The flap is controlled by the thermostat which releases hot air until the desired room temperature is reached. The storage heater can store limited heat, as the day progresses the storage heater may run out of heat. In such situations the homeowners usually use a backup heating system to heat their rooms. In is important that homeowners assess their energy requirement and choose a storage heater which fulfills their requirement.
