Electric Boilers and Repair
Installing an electric boiler is often a more cost-effective option compared to gas or oil boilers, particularly for smaller homes or properties without access to a gas network. Additionally, electric boilers can be more energy efficient, making them a smart choice for heating
How it Works
Electric boilers have a significant advantage over gas and oil boilers as they don’t produce any waste gases. As a result, there is no requirement for a flue or condensate pipe, making electric boiler installation faster, more affordable, and more versatile
- Electric boilers are a great alternative for homes that aren’t connected to the gas network and don’t have room for oil storage
- When considering an electric boiler for you, we’ll recommend a unit that suits your home’s electricity supply

Benefits of Service
Electric boilers are ideal for smaller homes with low heating and hot water demands. Switching from a gas or oil boiler to an electric one comes with many benefits. Our team will perform all the necessary checks to:
Electric boiler installations are easier and typically more cost-effective compared to gas or oil boilers.
The cost of installing a boiler can vary greatly, depending on factors such as the location, type, and size of the boiler, as well as the installer’s charges. On average, electric boiler installations can cost approximately £1,750, while gas boiler installations tend to exceed £2,000
Comparing the efficiency of electric boilers to gas and oil boilers can be confusing. Electric boilers have an efficiency rating of 99-100%, but only receive an ErP rating of C/D. In contrast, gas and oil boilers with efficiencies of 88-93% receive an ErP A-rating
Renewable energy has gained widespread acceptance and electric boilers powered by renewable energy sources are a sustainable option for heating and hot water. This is especially true if homeowners obtain their electricity from renewable energy providers
The government has stated that by 2025, gas boilers will be prohibited in all new homes and will be replaced by low-carbon heating alternatives as part of the U.K’s effort to decrease carbon emissions
