There have been a few worrying stories in the media recently regarding the safety of gas boilers. With a house in Wolverhampton unfortunately suffering a gas explosion, and more and more stories of people falling victim to carbon monoxide poisoning, it’s understandable that homeowners and landlords alike often worry about the safety of their gas boiler.
While it’s true that gas explosions are relatively uncommon, carbon monoxide leakages are a more common problem, and if you want to put your mind at rest, the way to go is a gas-free home. It’s no surprise that many homeowners in light of these recent stories in the news are turning to electric heating.
Electric central heating is safe alternative to gas central heating. When using an electric boiler and an electric heating system, you eliminate the need for gas, meaning there is no longer the threat of a gas leakage.
Carbon monoxide is both colourless and odourless, making it near impossible to detect. This is why it is known as the silent killer, particularly dangerous to the elderly, the young and the vulnerable. By installing electric heating, you will have the peace of mind that you’ll no longer be worrying about whether your boiler is leaking poisonous gases.
Electric central heating is economical and energy efficient too, and it’s a breeze to install. Not only will you be able to turn your radiators on and off at the flick of a switch, but you also won’t need the annual boiler service recommended to keep traditional gas boilers safe, or a yearly gas safety check if you’re a landlord.
