Review - German Electric Radiant Heating with Ecowarmth


I have to admit I was a little wary when I first came across this form of central heating, but I am so glad I finally relented!


I live in a small 1950’s bungalow on an exposed north facing slope. I had storage heaters and a small wood stove in my home but the storage heaters were useless and expensive. I just could not get warm if I moved away from the stove in the living room: and for me, cold means pain.


I am a retired classical ballet dancer and choreographer, with all the usual arthritis, plus a heavy dose of fibromyalgia thrown in for good measure. Heat for me means mobility and less pain. I was offered a chance to talk with some of the good fellows from Eco Warmth about the possibility of re fitting my home with their new German Radiant Heaters. Hmm, I was not really convinced but I agreed to listen. I am so glad I did.


Now, two years on, I am warm in winter. It is that simple. The fitting was straight forward with no complex piping as each unit is individual. They are easy to operate, and being a typical Yorkshire woman, I ignored the instructions and played around with them to see how they worked best for me: and this is one of the joys of the system; each heater can be operated individually so I can control the temperatures in each space easily and quickly. They are quick to warm up and simple to operate.


I was advised at first that I would probably have a larger than usual electric bill for the first quarter as my house was terribly damp and cold: the heaters needed to dry the house out and get the warmth deep into the fabric of the house. After that, the units would simply keep the temperature topped. I appreciated their honesty and straight forwardness which is a rare quality in business these days. Sure enough, my bills began to drop as the house warmed up. If I lit the wood stove the heaters in the hall would adjust themselves accordingly as they each have their own thermostat.


I don’t worry about winter now. I don’t worry about months of pain from the damp and cold and I don’t worry about huge bills that I cannot afford. The wood stove gives me the direct heat that we all love in winter when we are sat reading or watching TV. And the heaters keep the rest of the house comfortable and dry.


Eco warmth: you’re awesome!
