If you buy 1 KwH of electricity you will get just that amount of heat. Any electric heater is 100% efficient. ( only exception would be storage heaters -  which always rated those at 95% due to the odd days when you didn't need the heat).

I would imagine that an electrically heated wet central heating system will have various thermal losses from the pipework and such. I think I would choose some free standing or wall mounted heaters with a decent control mechanism, such as timers and thermostats. Lower maintenance and probably cheaper to buy and install.

I copied and pasted and got "Your page cannot be found"

Played around with the URL as it is unlikely that a pdf would have a .sabc15. after it.

Is this the device about which you wanted comments?


I do have experience of a similar device and they cost a lot to run.  Much better to go for wood or wood pellets.
