Boiler Compare - The Good Heating Co

Electric boilers

We are one of the only companies in Yorkshire that can repair, install and service Electric boilers. As more people are wanting to become more energy-efficient and save money, let us talk you through Electric Boilers. Electric boilers use electricity to heat the water that is supplied to your heating system. They can come in various sizes and forms, essentially you will see a unit that has the water running through it, being heated via a heating element. These systems can come in the same boiler types as gas boilers, so electric combi boilers are also available. They are good for off-grid areas and where gas supplies are not possible or wanted.

There are many reasons people may choose either an Electric or Gas boiler. We have listed the main differences below, so you know which is best for you.

Gas boiler vs electric boiler:

Gas boiler

  • Most popular boilers, majority of homes within the UK are heated using natural gas
  • A large amount of brands manufacture gas boilers
  • Gas supply is generally widely and continuously available, (power cuts can impact access to heating and hot water)
  • Large demands for heating and hot water can be met
  • Boiler replacements are usually simple
  • Installations can be expensive are they are more complex and labour intensive
  • Risk of gas leaks but this can be prevented by ensuring that the installation is completed by a professional and competent Gas Safe registered engineer
  • Not every home is connected to the gas grid network
  • Gas boilers are generally less expensive to run

Electric boilers

  • The simplicity of the system and the installation process means that the overall cost of installation is going to be much less than a gas boiler
  • They can be more energy efficient as no fossil fuels are being burnt during operation (some, but less, may be used during production)
  • Little heat is lost in the process of heating the water, so electric boilers are almost 100% efficient
  • Smaller and more compact in size, they are quiet in operation
  • The boiler can be placed almost anywhere in a property because they do not need a flue, or a gas pipe run to them
  • Not recommended for large properties with high heating and hot water demands, due to limitations on boiler input ratings
