The running costs of electric radiators may vary, depending on a number of factors.

Many electric radiators usually feature in-built thermostats, so will shut off automatically to preserve energy when not in use.

But your electrical charge tariff, that is set by your energy provider, will have an impact on the cost of running an electric radiator.

For further information, take a look at our Advice Centre blog, What are the running costs of Electric Radiators? Or visit our comprehensive radiator buying guide for a deeper insight into all styles of radiators to upgrade your home.

You should replace your thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs), or at least upgrade the TRV heads, if they are 10 or more years old.

TRVs can decline in terms of performance and accuracy over time.

To learn more about what TRVs are and why they may be beneficial, check out our guide to Thermostatic Radiator Valves.

And, if you’re considering changing yours, take a look at our comprehensive Radiator Valve Guide.
