Electric Boilers for Central Heating

Installation and servicing

An electric boiler is very similar to a gas or oil boiler, but it uses electricity to heat water for your home rather than gas/oil.


They are a particularly popular option for small homes that have no access to gas or oil and are often fitted in new build homes and flats as they are cheaper to install and maintain. Also, with no gas emissions, they are seen by many as a more environmentally friendly choice.


An electric boiler can replace any other small to medium size boiler in the home. It is light, small, compact and often completely silent.


Why choose an electric boiler?

No gas or oil needed. If you live in one of the two million homes in the UK that is not connected to the gas network or your home has gas boiler restrictions e.g. listed buildings, or limited space for a flue , an electric boiler might be  the best solution.


High efficiency

As electric boilers don’t need to burn fuel to produce heat they don’t lose energy through waste gases or flues. In many cases this results in efficiency rates of 99% compared to 89 – 95% for most gas boilers.


Competitive pricing

As there are no waste gases an electric boiler doesn’t need pipes, flue or chimney so the installation of the boiler may cost you less.


Light and compact

The lack of a flue and waste gases also means the unit may be much more compact and you have more flexibility about where in the home you have it installed.



As there are no moving elements in an electric boiler there is almost no noise.



Whilst most gas boilers need servicing annually, electric boilers may need less regular servicing.
