1. No more tank
You won’t find an oil tank in the gardens at Chelsea Flower Show, so if you’d rather a see-saw than an eye-sore you can turf out the tank by switching to electric. With your electricity supply providing all your energy needs any concerns about repositioning a replacement oil tank will be a thing of the past. What’s more you’ll no longer have to worry about oil pollution – did you know one third of the oil pollution incidents the Department of the Environment attend each year relate to oil loss from domestic heating tanks.
2. Efficiency made easy
Electric heating is 100% efficient, with no heat wasted via the boiler flue. Heat pump technology lets you go even further, with air source heat pumps delivering up to 4 units of heat for one unit of electricity – up to 400% efficient! You can also cross another job off your to-do list for good, as there’ll be no need to call your supply company to top-up the tank anymore. Jersey Electricity’s 24-hour heating tariff E20+ puts all your energy needs at the flick of a switch.
3. Leave fossil fuels in the past
Unless you’ve been buried under a rock you probably know by now that greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide are bad news. The good news is, for most oil users switching to electric heating is the single biggest change you can make to reduce your home’s carbon footprint. Heating our homes uses a lot of energy, and with electricity emitting over 10x less carbon than oil you can cut your carbon footprint in a flash. What’s more, one third of Jersey’s electricity is purchased from La Rance hydro-electric tidal power plant near St Malo – you’ll be switching to sea-power!
