Electric Central Heating Boilers Electric Boilers

Electric Boilers

Until recently effective Electric central heating was limited to storage heaters or blown air systems. These were both run of cheap rate electricity supplied in the small hours, and in some cases for a short top up period in the afternoon. Though storage heaters (the most popular) are reasonably efficient they have a problem of being on all the time, so if you have a hot day after a cold day in the winter, you will have heating even though you don't need it. They are also susceptible to drafts which can discharge them very quickly indeed.

A new form of electric powered heating has appeared recently in the form of electric heating boilers. These can directly replace other boilers in conventional heating systems; they are very compact, light and can be run off cheap rate electricity. Another benefit is that they are completely silent.

Electric boilers offer the comfort and convenience of wet central heating and domestic hot water, wherever there is mains electricity.

They can come as a fully packaged unit and comes complete with electric boiler, stainless steel hot water cylinder, and pre-plumbed factory fitted circulating pump, central heating and domestic hot water controls.
