Electric heating in the home

It is impossible to make sweeping statements about any energy used in the home, and the truth is that electrical heating is not always suitable for every building. However, it is a perfect response to smaller buildings with low energy requirements – in other words electric heating is great for homes, with bills that can be kept low and manageable. It also helps to reduce the overall carbon impact of a building which is critical for all our green future.
