Electric boilers are now considered to be as reliable as gas boilers, and are therefore the ideal solution for those with no access to the gas grid. Modern electric boilers are not only silent and clean to run, but also take up minimal space when compared to an oil fired alternative. They are also much cheaper to maintain than both gas and oil boilers.
Modern electric combi boilers have energy efficiency ratings of almost 100%, meaning you will get what you pay for in regards to your heating bills, with minimal wastage.
Modern electric combi boilers are often freestanding and designed to fit easily into a standard airing cupboard. They provide hot water and wet central heating when linked with either a standard radiator system or underfloor heating system. Heatrae Sadia and Thermaflow are generally considered as the leading manufacturers of electric combi boilers.
Electric system boilers are generally compact wall mounted systems, which can be located easily within most kitchens or airing cupboards. They can provide full central heating when connected to either a radiator heating system or underfloor heating system, however you will need to purchase a separate hot water cylinder to heat your water. EHC and Elnur are the main manufacturers of electric system boilers.
There are a number of boiler brands available on the market, so it's important that you know the manufacturers you can trust and those you should avoid. Therefore we always advise you check with your chosen installer exactly which boiler brand and model they will be installing, this way you can have a quick check online for customer experiences and reviews before you commit to your new boiler. We have outlined what to expect from leading boiler brands below.
When arranging your new electric boiler installation we also advise checking the type of warranty provided, as you will often find that the boiler itself comes with a standard manufacturer's warranty, however many installers will also offer some form of extended warranty or additional cover of their own, which provides extra peace of mind against boiler breakdowns.

When choosing an installer, whether they be national or local, it's crucial that you ensure they are qualified and experienced electricians. It is also advisable that you ensure they are accredited by a trade body.
You can check the Competent Persons Register to make sure that they possess the necessary Government-approved accreditation.
Finding an installer of electric boilers can be quite a difficult task, as most national boiler companies tend to install only gas boilers. You will likely need to use a local company who specialise in electric boilers, however this isn't necessarily a bad thing as local boiler installers are often the most experienced and quick to respond to enquiries, making them an excellent option for a speedy and reliable boiler installation.
If you have an electric boiler brand in mind that you would prefer based on your own research or experience then a local installer is likely to be more accommodating, as national installers tend to have agreements in place with a single boiler manufacturer. Your installer will usually purchase your prefered boiler type in the brand/make you want direct from the supplier, so you should always ensure that this comes with at the very least a 12 month manufacturer warranty.
There are two ways to pay for your new electric boiler depending on the budget you have available. If you have the funds available you are most likely to get the cheapest electric boiler deal if you purchase outright, however finance options provide a handy alternative for those who don’t currently have the upfront cash available.
New boilers can be costly, which is why most people find themselves opting for a boiler finance deal. Some companies offer boiler finance with no deposit, and payment terms of up to 10 years, making this a great option for those on tight budgets. You should always check the interest rates applicable to your chosen boiler deal and be cautious of any interest rates which seem overly high, as this will inevitably mean you pay much more for your new boiler in the long run.
Though it can be tempting to spread the cost over many years, if you have the funds to buy your boiler out-right then do so as you will avoid the interest incurred through finance, sometimes saving several hundred pounds.
Depending on the boiler company you may be asked to pay a 10% deposit upfront followed by the remaining balance due on completion of your install.
