    Bill and Ryan helped us out at very short notice when we were backed into a corner by our home buyers to complete an electrical inspection prior to exchange. Ryan arrived to complete this and ended up spending most of the day with us to complete some essential additional work. Ryan was friendly, polite professional and clearly very skilled in his trade. Bill's follow up with us with the necessary paperwork we required to complete our sale was very prompt. The cost of the work was very reasonable. We would highly recommend Goodwin Electrical - they helped us out and provided the reassurances we needed at a very stressful time. Thank you very much!!

    Excellent electrician. Bill was happy to answer any questions and provided us with everything we needed. Professional, polite and friendly - everything you could want from a local tradesman. Work was of a very high standard and he solved faults a previous electrician couldn't. Would highly recommend and we'll be using Bill for all future work.

    Electric Heating

    Electric Heating

    Electric is the fuel of the future for heating requirements. Dwindling supplies of north sea gas, the uncertainty of importing gas supplies, the volatility of oil prices and the commitment to reduce the U.K. carbon footprint all point towards electricity as the fuel of the future, with electricity to be generated by nuclear power and sustainable sources e.g. wind power, solar energy, wave power etc. Electric heating is 100% efficient and carbon neutral at the point of use, and with electricity being generated by nuclear and renewable sources in the future it will become completely carbon neutral. The government also promotes the use of microgeneration technologies e.g. solar panels, photovoltaics and wind turbines. Electric heating appliances are compatible with all these microgeneration technologies. As more low carbon and renewable sources of electricity become available we will increasingly see electric heating being favoured over gas.

    BENEFITS OF ELECTRIC HEATING

    Low capital and installation costs
    There is no requirement for unsightly pipework, and minimum disruption during installation. Because each heater can work independently, it is easy to add to a system as necessary or as budget permit.

    LOW OWNERSHIP COSTS

    The true ownership costs of a heating system should be looked at over a system lifetime. Electric heating systems have no moving parts and can be expected to last over 30 years. The boiler industry quotes a lifetime of 10 years for a boiler. Boiler based systems require costly yearly maintenance whereas electric systems are maintenance free. Electric heating is 100% efficient at the point of use meaning all the fuel used is turned into heat unlike boiler systems where energy is wasted through the flue. No significant costs to the running of a system. Gas boiler systems require yearly maintenance and if used within rental properties, both private and social housing landlords are responsible for annual safety inspections. This can also be a major hassle for landlords needing to gain access to properties to conduct maintenance and safety checks. Electric heating does not require any maintenance or safety inspections.

    COMFORT AND CONTROL

    Significant developments in electric heating have produced systems with highly accurate electronic thermostatic controls. The Electrorad range offer thermostats capable of maintaining a room temperature to within +/-0.1C. This ensures optimum comfort and only the use of energy that’s needed.

    PART L – BUILDING REGULATIONS

    The Electrorad system makes it easy to meet the requirements of Part L of the building regulations, with highly sophisticated zoned control systems.
