I'll be buying my first house soon and have two I've had offers accepted on. Would be happy in either so just trying to work out the pros/cons between the two. The cheaper of the two has electric overnight storage heaters whilst the more expensive one has "normal" gas central heating. I've only ever lived in a house with central heating so wondering if anyone has any input on what storage heaters are like to live with, or if it's not really anything I really need to worry about when making the decision of which house to go for?
Can't find much info on the internet other than older outdated forum posts, afaik these are pretty new heaters so should be more efficient and controllable than older ones?
Generally not fussed about the house being boiling - don't mind putting an extra layer on if it's a bit cold! And the house also has a fireplace in the living room, and a woodburner in the kitchen/dining room area. I'm not really around in the day if I'm working, just want a bit of heat on the early starts and a bit in the evening (up at 6am, back home by 6pm generally). This doesn't really seem to be what the storage heaters are best at so wondering whether it's still easy to live with or whether I'm gonna get annoyed with cold mornings and evenings all the time?!
