Why Electric Cast Iron Radiators?


Your electric element for radiators can be used as a standalone heat source or can be fitted to a radiator already plumbed into the central heating system. For example, the electric element can be fitted to a bathroom radiator so that the radiator can be turned "on" when your central heating is "off".

The electric element is fitted with a thermostat which will control the temperature of the room, and it also has a frost setting. To further enhance this, your electrician can also incorporate a timer.
