Electric boilers are very quiet when in use. This is as electric boilers don’t rely on elements inside the boiler moving to create heat.
Don’t Require Gas
In the United Kingdom, over 2 million homes don’t have access to a mains gas supply. Electric boilers are a great way to heat homes that don’t have a mains gas supply or off-grid properties.
Electric boilers are small and compact systems that can be installed in tight spaces. Electric boilers don’t use combustion fuel meaning they don’t require a flue or chimney. They also don’t need to be installed on an outside wall as there is no flue or gas pipe.
Electric boilers can be more energy-efficient than gas boilers as they lose little heat when generating hot water.
Electric boilers benefit from a high-efficiency rate, as almost no energy is lost when converting electricity to heat. Therefore, you save money on your energy bills compared to if you had a traditional boiler. Also, installing an electric boiler requires less equipment, which saves you money during the installation process.
Electric boilers do not use fuel, making it safer as you won’t experience any fuel leaks.
Electric boilers are compatible with eco-friendly energy supplies such as solar panels. Solar energy from the panels can be used to heat water, via an immersion heater in a hot water storage tank.
Things To Consider Before Installing An Electric Boiler
You should consider the following before installing an electric boiler:
Not Suitable For Large Homes
Electric boilers are only able to heat up a small about of water at any one time. Therefore, a conventional gas boiler may be more suited to a home where hot water usage is in high demand.
If there is a power cut your boiler will not be able to operate, so you won’t have any hot water or heating.
