Dimplex do some new storage heaters - Quantum, I remember back when I sparkying they were pushing them in the merchants.
Never looked much into them though tbh
Tbh you might be as cheap with a couple of panel rads if your sleeping during the day then your not likely to have the heat on, set them on a timer so they come on say an hour before you get home so the house ain't a fridge and come on again an hour before you get up.

Economy 7 is quite expensive, my utilities (gas and electric) for a 2 bed house on an exposed slope in NE Scotland is ~ £45 a month less than I was for a very well insulated 1 bedroom shoebox in town heated by electricity in 2013, even on the best deal I could get I was paying £180 a month....seriously expensive.

If you own the place, a gas central heating system will pay for itself and rapidly, plus you can hook Nest or similar to it and it handles the rest for you as it learns your patterns and I *think* reacts to the weather.

Avoiding British Gas and speaking to some local heating installers might get you some surprisingly decent quotes

I also found this house is far dryer than any electric heated house I had, electric houses had water streaming down windows in winter even with trickle vents open, this house only has a little water on the bedroom window on the coldest days.

Yeah Fischer are worse than double glazing salesmen or used car salesmen, its no surprise their fliers are bundled with papers read by old folk, my house was lived in by old folk for years, so because I'm not on the for sale electoral roll, they keep sending their garbage....filed under B for BIN

For the past three years or so, I've been using 'Ignite' controllers from Inspire Home Automation, and have been very impressed with them. No idea if they work with electrical heating systems, but I don't see any reason why not - and their blurb says they are compatible with "99% of current central heating systems"
