Why choose an electric boiler?
There are many reasons to choose an electric heating system, with the resources of gas and oil expected to run out within the next forty years electricity could be the best solution for home heating installing an electric heating system comes with many benefits such as it produces zero emissions, no risks of a carbon monoxide leak, it is an efficient and effective heating system for properties off the gas network and features quick response to the central heating being turned on. Other benefits include installation being flexible due to not needing a flue or condensate pipe there are fewer moving parts so less chance of developing a fault, no need for an annual service which will save both time and money in future unlike natural gas or oil that need servicing once a year.
Why is the efficiency of electric boilers different to gas?
Efficiency ratings of 99-100% show how efficient electric boilers are yet they’re only ever awarded ErP ratings of about D. On the other hand, gas and oil boilers can have an ErP A-rating despite achieving efficiencies of no more than 93%.
While electric boilers are highly efficient, the electricity generation back at the power plant is the reason why electric appliances have a low ErP rating.
Electricity is considered a carbon intensive fuel because the majority of generation in the UK is the result of burning fossil fuels. This process releases twice as much carbon than natural gas production, hence the lower ErP rating.

Can a Mattira electric boiler save me money?
Electric boiler installation is simpler and therefore often cheaper than gas and oil boiler installation and could potentially save 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.
