If you work from home in one room, the winter can be an expensive time for heating, so here is a simple solution that can be installed into any home, no matter what central heating system you have.
Many homes have gas, or oil central heating system, and switching the 25KW boiler on all day, just to heat one room in your home-office, leads to a huge winter heating bill. Even if you turn off every other radiator in the home, you are still left with the boiler chugging away, just to heat one room.
With non-compliant, inefficient storage heating, the room starts off warm, and by lunch-time, is already beginning to get cold enough for adding another jumper, or short bursts of a fan heater. By the late afternoon, it is positively cold, and the fan heater stays on, using up a vast amount of electricity.
But there is a heating solution that is cheap to install, easy to fix, and is very economical to run…
All you need is a Creative Radiators electric radiator installed in your home-office room, that you switch on, and set to your preferred comfort temperature.
Once reached the desired comfort set temperature the radiator will keep the room exactly to the comfort degree you choose, switch itself on and off all day and without having to put the 25 Kw central heating boiler on at all.
In the evening, when your whole house heating system starts up, it will just switch itself off, and stay off, while the room is at the temperature you need.
So one 1400-watt electric radiator will use on average 12p* unit of electricity per hour, and you can keep warm all day for under £1.20 per day*. A great idea for people who are self-employed and working from home. No floors to lift, no pipes to lay, just 4 screws in the wall with a couple of brackets, a plug socket, and download the free Creative radiator App a revolutionary way of controlling room by room your electric heating system from any mobile devices.

This leads to the question of how to heat that one office room effectively and there are some different options:
Call in the plumbers, and extend (when possible) your existing gas central heating with extra radiators. This involves floors up, more pipes to the boiler, and 2 or 3 days of labour costs. Or if your room already has a radiator, you will need to switch on the whole system to heat just one room. Electric fan heaters are expensive to run for anything more than a quick burst of heat, so here is a brilliant alternative:
