If you live in an area that does not have a gas connection, then your home may be heating using electricity, which is normally in the form of electric storage heaters. These use cheaper, off peak electricity overnight to ‘charge’ and then release their stored energy as heat during the day to warm up the home. This can be controlled in various ways using thermostats or heating controls.
More modern, slimmer storage heaters can store energy more efficiently, and generally offer a more controllable option, so you can use the heat when you need it, rather than it gradually dissipating over the course of the day.
