Electric boilers – Small, compact and completely silent

Electric BoilerElectric boilers are an ideal replacement for any other small to medium size boiler in the home. Small, light and compact, electric boilers are often completely silent and are particularly favoured for their low running costs due to the price of electricity in comparison to gas and oil.

Homes in rural areas, where access to mains gas may be a problem, will benefit from an electric powered boiler installation. After all, some homeowners have no other option other than to use electricity to heat their home. Increasingly, new housing projects or new build flats are now being fitted with electric boilers due to the advantages they offer, such as their cost and environmental benefits.

Electric boilers are safe and cost-effective heating solutions

An electric boiler will have advantages over a gas boiler or an LPG boiler, for example.

  • There’s no need for a flue.
  • Because there’s no fumes then there’s no risk of explosions occurring so electric boilers have considerable safety benefits.
  • They are easy to install and maintain.
  • Electric boilers are cost-effective.
  • They are more or less silent.
  •  Available in central heating and hot water or central heating only options.

Boilers need some TLC from time to time

If you want your electric boiler to remain in tip top working order, and reduce the likelihood of problems occurring and, in the worst instances, breaking down, you’re going to need to shower if with some TLC from time to time.

As a rule, you must have your electric boiler serviced every year. This will help to make sure it is running efficiently and not fall foul to nasty out of the blue breakdowns, which frequently occur at the most inconvenient times. Unfortunately the majority of homeowners tend to require a repair service when there’s an emergency, for example when their boiler suddenly fails to produce any heating or hot water.  Boiler breakdowns tend to occur more frequently when the boiler is in heavy use during the winter. And it’s essential for homeowners to have a fully working boiler in these colder months.

With this in mind, you can enter your repair requirements here at Builder Guide and your information will be sent to professional Gas Safe Registered boiler technicians who will be able to give you a quick quote and organise a visit to your home to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
