Electric central heating & boiler installers in Glasgow serving Scotland
For a long time now, people in Scotland have known little to nothing about the option of using electric central heating to heat their home. Hopefully this page of our website can shed some light on this topic which is often over complicated by some electric central heating installers, with some even exploiting the lack of knowledge. Simply put, wet electric central heating works like gas central heating, with hot water being transferred through pipes in your home to radiators. narrative, there needs an alternative. Electric heating has become a more popular source of power for heating homes; the modern equipment avialable such as electric thermaflow combi boilers heat water and transfer it to the radiator circuit. If you have a small property in Glasgow such as a flat, it’s possible that electricity as a better option for your central heating system. As long as you have modern efficient equipment installed it can be a cost-effective way to heat your home.
How electric central heating works
Wet electric central heating is a home heating system that uses a system of radiators and pipes, which are powered by an electric boiler. The most effective analogy that we use to explain wet electric central heating is that they are the same as conventional gas central heating systems, however they use an electric boiler instead of a gas combi one. Another crucial comparison that we draw to gas central heating, is the standard of the installation. All heating equipment is only as good as the installation, and just like with gas boilers, even the most premium equipment will only perform to full capacity if installed correctly. Therefore hiring a reliable approved installer is vital, make sure you select a company like ourselves with a strong reputation and all of the professional accreditations and qualifications required to do the job correctly.
How electric boilers work
To use an electric boiler you need to install standard central heating radiators and pipework, water is heated and then transferred to the central heating system and radiators through the pipes. While other power sources like oil, gas or wood heaters heat the water indirectly, electric boilers heat directly. There is a high powered element in the heating chamber that heats the water flowing through the chamber and to the radiators. Boilers are small and slim in size so that they can fit into some small space like in the cupboard. They do not require a flue because no exhaust gases emitted and thus less heat is lost. Manufacturers posit that Electric heaters efficiency is about 99% which makes it the most reliable heating system.
Benefits of wet electric central heating
The inherent modular in an electric central heating system makes this system the most energy-efficient. Other central heating systems that involve heating water at a central boiler and then pushed through the pipes experience a lot of heat loss through the pipes and it takes longer for the heat to be distributed throughout the home. With the electric central, no heat loss and the heating are instantly making it such an efficient way.
Cheap to install and maintain
Imagine how costly the piping system can be, especially when you have a big house. The plumbing, the cost of boilers, repairs, and replacements can go very high. Conventional gas and wood heating are very expensive to install and maintain. You will require regular maintenance and the annual cost of getting the boiler serviced. Again, with lots of water running throughout the house, if anything happens like a pipe burst, it can be messy. Electric central heating is cheap to install, easy to maintain and not messy. Most importantly, all the electric central products are suited for DIY installation and this cuts costs in a big way. No boiler involved or internal combustion and therefore no risk of dangerous emissions like the carbon monoxide. Again, there is no water running through the pipes and therefore no issues of leaks and you’ll need not bleed the radiator anytime again.
A thermostat is used to limit traditional heating systems in a central point. The switching on and off of the system depends on the central location temperature reading. One room’s temperature should be representative of the rest and if this is not the case, you could have some rooms that are too cold or hot and thus there’s lots of wastage. With an opportunity to control the heaters individually, you can easily fine-tune your heating. If you are in our home with a few rooms that are not in use, you can switch off the heating system toward such rooms. This reduces your power consumption. You have a lot more control over your heating system with electric central heating than any other. Electric heating is great for the environment The traditional heating systems are powered by combustible fuels and these emit dangerous gases like carbon monoxide which are released due to faulty gas heaters. The electric central heating system doesn’t have these- no issues of leakages and harmful emissions and therefore a safer alternative. Why invest so much in heating systems that are risky to you and your loved ones when you can opt for a cheaper, efficient, safer and less costly system?
No noise – literally zero!
Imagine those winter mornings that you have been woken up by gas radiators as they kick into gear. The churning and banging of water when it starts to heat up. On the other hand, the electric central heating system doesn’t make a noise at all. There’s no background noise, no clunking, of thumping through the pipes and therefore you can enjoy your sleep.
There is a lot of costs involved in traditional gas/oil heating. You may think that the cost of electricity is higher by comparing the cost of the unit but you will need to spend so much gas to heat the boiler and supply heat throughout the house. With electric central heating, you only need to subscribe to Economy 7 and you’ve had your bills checked. There is a lot of baggage that comes with the traditional central heating systems- the gas/oil or wood fuel-powered boilers, with electricity, you don’t have to be worried about such.
