Electric Instead Of Gas!
Are you looking for an alternative to a gas heated water system? Then an electric boiler could be the perfect solution for you! Gas is the dominant and traditional method of water heating for homes across the UK. Unlike traditional gas boilers, electric boilers do not require gas or oil to heat water for your heating system and hot water outlets such as showers and taps. Electric boilers only require a mains electrical supply to heat water. This makes electric boilers ideal for small properties such as flats or rural properties without a gas supply.

- Lower emissions
- Cheaper to install

- Easier to maintenance

How Do Electric Boilers Work?
An electric boiler heats elements within the unit, so as water passes over the elements the heat is transferred to the water. Electric boilers operate in a similar fashion to electric kettles. The heated water can then be used to supply a heating system and outlets. Electric boilers are suitable for most small to medium sized properties, as they only have a limited amount of hot water available at any one time. There are a number of electric boiler models on the market which Wirral Plumbers can install at your domestic or light commercial property.
Electric boilers use a heating element to heat water. Tt is a simple design and cheap to install. This design provides hot water on demand, but has no hot water storage facilities.
Electric boiler systems offer hot water storage either contained in the electric boiler unit or separately. This type of electric boiler requires more space, is more expensive but enables overnight water heating and hot water storage.
Best suited for commercial environments, this electric boiler is a large unit that stores heated water within the boiler itself.
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.
