Electric Boiler Installation In Bristol

What Make an Electric Boiler Different?

Electric boilers are cutting-edge heating systems that harness the power of electricity to provide warmth and comfort to your home.  
Unlike traditional gas or oil boilers, electric boilers operate by converting electrical energy into heat, making them an environmentally friendly and energy-efficient choice for modern homeowners.

Here are just a few of the many customer needs we have helped with over the years:

1. Assess Your Heating Needs:

If you want to make sure you pick the ideal boiler for your house an electric boiler with an appropriate capacity to meet your heating demands. The output is typically measured in kilowatts (kW).
To do this, you should determine the size of your home and the heating requirements for different rooms and consider factors like insulation, window quality, and local climate to estimate the heat load.

Factor in the size of your home, the number of occupants, and your hot water requirements when determining the boiler size. Generally you should add 1.5kw for every radiator in the house

2. Energy Efficiency:

Look for electric boilers with high energy efficiency ratings. This information is often provided as an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) or a Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers in the UK (SEDBUK) rating.

Check for additional features like programmable thermostats and zoning options for improved efficiency.

3. Installation Requirements:

Consider the ease of installation. Electric boilers are generally simpler to install than gas or oil boilers, but it’s still crucial to check compatibility with your existing heating system.

Verify if your electrical system can support the additional load of an electric boiler.

4. Space Considerations:

Assess the available space for the boiler installation.

Electric boilers are often compact, but it’s essential to ensure that the chosen model fits comfortably in the designated location.

5. Brand and Model Research:

Research reputable brands and models in the market. Read customer reviews to understand the performance and reliability of different electric boilers.

Check if the manufacturer provides a warranty and the terms and conditions associated with it.

Some reputable models include the “Eletromax” by “Heatree Sadia”, “Mattira MAC15” by “Elnur” and the “Comet Combi Boiler” by “Electric Heating Company”

 6. Cost and Operating Expenses:

Compare the upfront cost of the electric boiler with its long-term operating expenses. Consider the local cost of electricity and potential energy savings.

Evaluate the lifespan and maintenance requirements to get a comprehensive view of the total cost of ownership.

 

Getting Your Electrical Boiler Installed in Bristol

If you’re swapping out a gas or oil boiler for an electric one, it’s essential to contact a qualified heating engineer to handle the removal of your current boiler. 

This is due to the technical proficiency needed for handling both electrical components and pressurized hot water systems, as mishandling either can pose significant safety risks.

The heating engineer will uninstall the existing boiler, extracting the flue and condensate pipes – unnecessary for electric boilers as they don’t generate waste gases.
Afterwards, the gas line will either be capped or the oil storage tank completely removed.

The same heating engineer can then proceed to install the new electric boiler onto the wall. However, post-installation, you’ll require an electrician to finalize the wiring and ensure the boiler is operational.
Often, your heating engineer can recommend a local electrician to complete the installation.
