If you're looking for an efficient source of heating water, electric boilers Scottish Borders could be just what you are looking for. Electric boilers are ideal for any structure, and will heat your home's water at a cost that's much easier to budget for than oil or gas.
Electric boilers run cleanly and quietly, yet provide you with hot water whenever you need it. These boilers are generally considered to be safer than gas or oil ones as well. This means you could save money on insurance, and can often forego the annual inspections that are required of other boilers. They can also be linked to environmentally friendly energy sources such as solar panels for even greater efficiency. Electric boilers are typically very inexpensive to maintain and repair as well.
When it comes to choosing between gas and electric boilers, efficiency is usually the key factor. Today’s electric boilers range in efficiency, but top-of-the-line models offer up to 99% efficiency for the user. Something else to consider is the availability of natural gas. Statistics show that nearly two million people throughout the UK do not have access to natural gas for their homes, which means they’ll need to find another fuel for heating their water and homes. Although LPG is an option, it is typically more expensive than electricity. Finally, there are certain buildings that do not allow for the installation of appliances that require any sort of gas or open flame, such as mobile homes. In this case, electricity is truly the only option.
There are many benefits associated with using electric boilers, including:

Prices vary depending upon the size of your tank. A contractor might need to charge more if modifications to your existing plumbing or wiring must be done ahead of time. If you have an old tank that must be removed and disposed of, this could add to the cost of installation as well. Buying a good quality boiler may cost you more money initially, but will actually save you money in the long run. That's because it will last longer, require fewer repairs, and save you money on your energy bills.
Electric boilers are often slightly smaller than their gas-powered counterparts, and they’re simpler to install because they do not require a flue or chimney for the expulsion of combustion gases. Because they’re smaller, you’ll have more flexibility in the placement, as well, which can add to your home’s aesthetics.

Electric boilers are good for areas where gas or oil boilers are not permitted, but they can cost up to 3 times more than these other options. This will depend on the gas and electricity prices in your current area. These prices tend to fluctuate frequently.
Electric boilers are easy to maintain and operate nearly silently. They are also a bit more environmentally friendly, as they do not release any waste or carbon dioxide. As a backup system, an electric boiler can also be linked to solar panels.
The average lifespan of an electric boiler is 8-10 years. A high quality boiler that is well maintained can extend that lifespan to up to 20 years, but it may become less efficient even with proper maintenance.
If you already have an electric boiler and are just switching out the old one for a new model, it can be installed for around £1,000. Entirely new installations can cost upwards of £2,000, depending on the details of the installation.
You may do this only if your electric and plumbing lines are capable of supporting it. We recommend an inspection beforehand, which can be performed very affordably by any of the knowledgeable Scottish Borders professionals in our extended network.
Installing your boiler unit as a DIY project is strongly advised against because you may not possess the necessary knowledge and expertise to ensure that the unit is installed and set up correctly.
Like gas boilers, electric boilers come in many different styles and sizes that can heat a one-bedroom flat or a three-storey home. Your local boiler installation company can help you choose the right boiler size for your unique needs.
If you have multiple bathrooms and you anticipate that you’ll need hot water delivered to more than one tap at the same time, an electric system boiler is your best option. These boilers allow for the rapid heating and delivery of unlimited amounts of water to every radiator and tap in your home.
If your existing home has never been fitted with a boiler, choosing an electric model can actually save you money in terms of installation. That’s because installers won’t need to run gas lines, which can become very expensive and require tearing up walls and floors for placement, and there’s no need to install a flue pipe or chimney. What’s more, it’s smaller than a conventional gas boiler, so it takes up far less space.
Each manufacturer will provide different warranties depending on the make, model and size of the electric boiler that is being installed.
In many cases, electric units aren’t able to provide the amount of hot water required to suit the needs of larger families. When chatting with one of our network of professionals, they will be able to provide you with information regarding the type of boiler unit that will be most suitable for your needs.
