    would it cheaper just to install Electric Heaters on a Timer / App basis….. no more oil/radiators / leaks etc.

    Just thinking out loud??

    If you are talking about wall hung electric radiators, they aren’t cheap. The running cost would also be close to double that of oil.

    I just asked the same question on a different post.
    I just bought a 2 bed terraced house 80square meters 

    It already has storage heaters that were put in in the late 80s. It needs a new kitchen and bathroom so budget is tight. Should I just replace all storage heater s with electric ones(atc or farho) 

    Or how much would an oil boiler and rads cost ??

    I would probably keep the storage heating in that scenario. The storage heaters charge up on the night electricity rate which is half the day rate.

    The ATC or Farho aren’t storage heaters so these will operate on the full day rate. They would offer a benefit over storage heaters in terms of better control , as they have built in thermostats and can respond to heat requirements ‘live’ rather than the more average effect of storage heaters. However would these benefits offset the fact that the electricity unit rate will be double that of storage? Usually not, unless the house is regularly unoccupied and only requires heat for short periods of the day.

    Oil would still probably be the cheapest running cost of all, but to install radiators, pipework, tank etc. from scratch would amount to significant upfront costs. Easily €10k - €15k.
