Electric Radiators Impact on the EPC rating

Are modern electric panel heaters a good idea to improve the EPC rating? Unfortunately no. As the EPC looks at the running costs of heating your home and electricity is more expensive than gas, panels heaters score poorly. High heat retention storage heaters are the way to go as these use an off peak electricity tariff; therefore the EPC rating is much better compared to panel heaters. However, for better results the storage heater must be listed on the EPC software database. Thus, it is important to contact an energy consultant to check the EPC rating before making a purchase.
