Local Electric Boiler Installers

Electric boilers, while less common than gas boilers, can provide a viable heating alternative for households looking for energy-efficient and ecologically friendly options. Electric boilers, as opposed to gas boilers, rely on a heating element through which electricity travels to heat water that circulates through the central heating system, which may include radiators or underfloor heating.

 

One of the primary benefits of electric boilers is their high energy efficiency. These systems are environmentally friendly since they transform a considerable part of the electricity they consume into heat. However, it is critical to recognise that the cost of running an electric boiler can be higher than that of a gas boiler due to higher electricity unit prices. Regardless, their overall efficiency and potential for integration with renewable energy sources make them an appealing alternative for some households.

More about Electric Boiler Installers

Electric boilers are particularly well-suited to renewable energy options such as solar panels. Solar-panelled homes can benefit from the synergy between electric boilers and solar-generated electricity. Solar panels can power the electric boiler during periods of abundant sunlight, decreasing dependency on the traditional electrical grid and potentially saving money over time. This green energy strategy is in line with the growing trend of sustainable living and lowering carbon footprints.

Incorporating renewable energy into home heating systems promotes environmental responsibility while also providing long-term financial rewards. To enhance efficiency and reduce ongoing operational expenses, homeowners contemplating electric boilers can consider pairing them with renewable energy sources such as solar electricity.

Frequently asked questions about electric boiler installers

There are many benefits to having an electric boiler and you should consider which pros and cons of each type of boiler are most important to you. The main benefits of having an electric boiler include:  
  • They have a high level of efficiency as they convert most of the electricity into heat.
  • The installation cost is lower than installing a gas boiler as they do not require a gas supply or flue.
  • Electric boilers are regarded as safer than gas or oil, as there are no carbon monoxide emissions or risk of explosion.
  • Electric boilers are smaller than gas boilers and can fit into a compact space.
  • They operate much quieter than a gas boiler and heating system.
  • Typically, they will require less maintenance as there are less parts to go wrong and no chance of leaks.
  • They are ideal for properties that are not on the gas grid.

The installation cost for an electric boiler will usually be between £500 and £2,000 and the costs will depend on the size of the home and the location of the boiler. To buy an electric boiler, the cheaper models start at around £1,000 while premium electric boilers can cost £2,500 to £4,000.

 

An electric boiler should be installed by a qualified electrician, while a gas boiler must be installed by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. If you are replacing a gas boiler with an electric boiler you would need the services of both a qualified electrician and a Gas Safe Registered engineer (unless you find one with both of these qualifications), so the installation costs would usually be higher.

Installing a new electric boiler will usually take less than a day if it is a straight switch to replace an older boiler. However, if there is more work involved, such as moving the location of the boiler or replacing/installing new radiators then this is likely to take around 2-4 days. Installing new underfloor heating will also extend the costs and length of time for installation.
