Benefits of electric heating in student accommodation
We know why electric heating is beneficial for landlords, but when it comes to landlords of student accommodation specifically, there’s a lot more to consider. In a post-covid UK, student life has changed significantly.

Heating a holiday home presents unique challenges. Some properties may be used all year-round but only for a few days a week.

But with efficiency comes other aspects to consider: a holiday home needs to have a heating system that’s flexible, convenient, and capable of instant response. That’s what all Ecostrad products offer – but with our extensive range, which type of heating is the most efficient for holiday homes?

Electric is developing in leaps and bounds compared to gas central heating, which faces irrelevancy in a world adapting to diminishing resources. For millions of people, electric has become an integral fixture in home heating for its convenience and environmental benefits – not least all the ways it can keep costs down.
