It’s fair to say we are big backers of electric central heating and all its benefits. We could go on all day and night about how great it is. So how about for a change, we let the research and official facts and figures do the talking?
Electric heaters are 100% efficient at the point of use. This means all the electricity used is directly converted into heat. Compare this to gas boilers where energy is lost through the flue.
Lesser Price Fluctuations
Gas and electricity prices are known to fluctuate and Energywatch has reported that some energy suppliers have increased the cost of gas by 92%. However the cost of electricity has only increased by 54%.
Gas boilers are said to have an average lifespan of around 10 years. Compare this to electric heating that has virtually no moving parts, and a lifespan of at least 15 years.
Electric heating is cheaper to install than gas central heating. It lasts an average of 50% longer and because of the lower maintenance costs it can prove to be a more cost effective option to gas.
So as you can see, the figures have it. If you are considering opting for electric heating as an alternative to gas, why not get in touch to arrange a consultation and quote?
