    All good useful discussion here.

    I am just going to have to go for it with my chosen heaters.

    I hope to use www.ascotheating.co.uk

    They have a document which talks about EPC's and electric heating. Their take is that the heaters have moved forwards so much in the last 10 years that it is criminal the EPC doesn't recognise this.

    The guy I have been emailing says they try and talk to the EPC committee but it is very hard to get through to them.

    Their heaters use normal electric and so can be much more responsive to demand, unlike E7. They feel the efficiency is much better than E7, even though the electric rate is higher.

    I like them, so looking like this will be route to heating.

    As a side note. My EPC guy says air source heat pumps have the similar issue to normal electric heating because when it comes to the water heating you still need some form of electric storage heat. So this drops the EPC rating downwards. If so i can't see any landlord being able to install this set up.
