Take Advantage of Our Modern Electrical Heating Solutions

Modern electrical heating has become increasingly popular for homes and businesses in the area for a number of reasons. For starters, electrical heating is far more flexible than oil and gas alternatives. Since electric heat doesn’t rely on flues or pipe-work, you won’t have to worry about restrictions or regulatory issues that dictate where the heaters can be placed, allowing for unparalleled flexibility and versatility.

Plus, with no fuel burnt internally and no moving pieces required to generate the heat, mechanical breakdowns and safety issues like carbon monoxide leaks are something you won’t have to worry about when you opt for electric heat. With increased efficiency and ease that electrical heating offers, the only thing you need to do when choosing electrical heating is making sure that it’s installed by B & R Electric.

What Are the Most Efficient Electric Home Heating Systems?

There are several efficient options for electric home heating systems. Some of the most commonly used and most efficient systems include:

  • Heat pumps: These systems use electricity to transfer heat from one place to another, either from outside to inside (for heating) or vice versa (for cooling). They can be up to three times more efficient than traditional electric resistance heaters.
  • Radiant heating: This type of system uses electric cables or water-filled pipes installed on the floors, walls, or ceilings to radiate heat into a room. It can be up to 30 percent more efficient than forced-air systems.
  • Electric thermal storage heaters: These heaters use off-peak electricity to heat ceramic bricks during low-demand periods and release the stored heat during peak hours.
  • Mini-split systems: These systems use individual units in each room and can be highly efficient, heating or cooling only the areas that need it.
  • Infrared heating: This type of heating system uses infrared rays to heat objects and people in a room directly rather than in the air, making it more efficient and cost-effective.

What Wattage Is Best for Your Electric Heating System?

Choosing the right wattage for your electric heating system depends on various factors, such as the size of your home, insulation, and climate.

Here are some general guidelines to help you determine the best wattage for your specific needs:

  • For small spaces or supplemental heating: 750-1500 watts
  • Average-sized rooms with decent insulation: 1500-2500 watts
  • Large rooms or poorly insulated spaces: 2500+ watts

It’s also important to consider the voltage of your electrical system. Most homes have a standard voltage of 120 volts, which can handle up to 1500 watts per circuit. However, for larger electric heating systems, a dedicated circuit with higher voltage may be necessary to accommodate the wattage needed.

Electrical Heating Is the Sustainable Choice

As we mentioned above, there are many different reasons why electrical heating makes sense for homes and businesses in the area. It’s much easier to install, easier to maintain and safer than any of the other popular alternatives. But it’s also the sustainable choice.

Fossil fuel prices are only going to go up as they get scarcer and scarcer. Electric heating does not depend on these ever-depleting fuels, making electrical heating a smart investment for the future. Plus, many electric heaters are made out of recycled materials. So, for the environmentally conscious, electrical heating is the right way to go.

How Long Do Electric Heaters Last?

The lifespan of an electric heater depends on several factors, including the quality of the unit, frequency of use, and maintenance. On average, a well-maintained electric heater can last anywhere from 8 to 12 years. An electric heater that is used frequently or in a harsh environment may have a shorter lifespan.

Proper maintenance includes regularly cleaning or replacing filters and ensuring the heating element is in good condition. To ensure the longevity of your electric heater, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for maintenance and usage. Regularly inspecting and servicing your heater can also help extend its lifespan.

Electrical Heating Works for Your Budget

Electric heating is quick and easy to install, especially when you use one of our expert electricians to get the job done for an extremely affordable rate. But the savings don’t end after the heaters have been installed. Because they require very little maintenance, even as time goes on, you won’t have to worry about paying for expensive repairs like you would with a gas furnace for example.

What could be better than low installation costs and virtually no maintenance costs in the future? Modern electric heating systems can be up to 47 percent cheaper than the alternatives, which makes it an affordable source of heat for commercial and residential clients alike.

Yearly check-ups are recommended just to assure that everything is working fine, which is no problem thanks to B & R Electric’s great rates with all things electrical heating.

Is Electric Heating Cheaper Than Gas?

In general, electric heating tends to be more expensive in areas with high electricity rates. However, electric heating systems are typically more efficient than gas systems, providing more heat for less energy consumption. This can make them a more cost-effective option in the long run, especially in colder climates where gas systems have to work harder.

Moreover, electric heating systems don’t require expensive installation or maintenance costs like gas systems. They also don’t produce harmful emissions, making them a more environmentally friendly choice.
