Regular readers may remember that we're running a small art / craft retail outlet (on a shoestring).
Thanks for the suggestions about reducing the cost of lighting - we've made some savings by swapping the mains GU10 spots for 20w units - and all still looking good.
Thinking ahead to winter, and some means of heating the shop.
It's wired/metered for overnight reduced rate electricity, and there are a couple of (elderly-looking) storage heaters in the place.
Bit of a debate going on at the moment about the relative merits of overnight storage heaters / fan heaters / radiant heaters / oil-filled heaters.
Heating's only required during shop opening hours (10:30am - 5:30pm) - so my thoughts are to use overnight cheap-rate mains to charge up storage heaters... but what does the team think ?
In my workshop I use one of those low-wattage (3 x 400w switchable) quartz radiant heaters - I was thinking that this could be arranged to supplement the night storage and warm up chilly shop-assistants...
Comments / suggestions / advice please?
