electric combi boiler is part of the Mattira range designed and manufactured by ELNUR that’s suitable for small properties with 1 bathroom with a single or triple phase electricity supply.
Why choose an electric boiler?
Supplies of gas and oil are expected to run out within the next 40 years which means there’s never been a better time to turn to electricity for your heating and hot water. Switching to an electric boiler from gas or oil comes with many benefits, including zero emissions, no risk of a carbon monoxide leak, quick response to the central heating being turned on and a flexible installation.
Why is electric boiler efficiency different to gas?
Electricity is considered a carbon intensive fuel as the majority of generation in the UK is done using fossil fuels which produces twice as much carbon as natural gas production. Due to this the ErP rating for electric boilers is never higher than a D, whereas gas boilers have an A-rating.
This is despite electric boilers actually performing to a highly efficient standard, achieving efficiencies of 99-100%, wasting no energy, while gas boilers reach efficiencies of around 93%.

Could a Mattira electric boiler save me money?
Electric boiler installation is simpler and therefore comes at a lower price than the installation of gas and oil boilers, potentially saving you up to £250. As well as the installation, annual services aren’t necessary which can help to save you a further £60 – £120 each year and as there are fewer moving parts in an electric boiler, there’s much less chance of an issue developing.
How efficient is the Mattira 12 kW combi?
The Mattira range of electric boilers are able to achieve efficiencies of 100%, meaning that they don’t waste any energy. They also come with an ErP D-rating for heat and hot water.
Is a Mattira 12 kW right for my home?
An output rating of 12 kW makes this electric boiler best suited to properties with 6-8 radiators and 1 bathroom.
Are there any alternative options?
There’s an electric boiler in the Mattira range for just about any small home or flat as there are several output ratings to choose from: 3kW, 4kW and 6kW for homes with 3 to 4 radiators; 7kW, 8kW and 9kW for homes with 4-6 radiators; 10kW and 11kW for properties with 6-8 radiators and the more powerful 13kW and 15kW units for properties with 8-10 radiators.
What are the features of Mattira electric combi boilers? Mattira electric combi boilers have many features to make your home more efficient, including smart electronic modulation to regulate energy consumption, digital modulation to ensure less energy waste, a high flow rate, integrated 50 litre store of water with user adjustable temperature regulation, TRIAC technology, steel shielded INCOLOY800 elements for high temperature strength and resistance to corrosion, expansion vessel pump and AAV as well as a digital display with user friendly controls for maximum control over the unit.
How long is the warranty period?
Mattira electric combi boilers feature a 5 year warranty on the hot water cylinder and a 2 year warranty on the rest of the components.
