What are the Benefits of Electric Central Heating?

Today, we’re talking about the benefits of electric central heating. Why should you choose it over gas? We’ll be going over some of what we think are the clear benefits, and then leave you to make an informed decision.

The fact is many more people are now turning to electric central heating because of the great inroads that have been made over the last few years. Ones which we immediately think of are advancements in design and technological changes which makes having electric heating a much more attractive option.


Installation is much easier than gas so the pipes can be left alone. It’s simply a case of connecting the heaters to the circuits, and it can be done by a qualified and trained electrician.


It’s also incredibly easy to upgrade your system as your electrical heaters are also stand-alone units, so adding to your system won’t be too much like hard work.

Don’t Worry About Expense

Electrical heaters are nowhere near as expensive as you’d imagine. They are completely efficient, at 100% and all electricity used is converted into heat. With gas, energy is often lost up the flue. Electricity prices are also far more economical than they used to be, with prices remaining competitive.


Electricity is very safe to use because there’s no internal burning of fuel internally so to generate heat, this means that unlike gas, there’s no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.


Costs can add up if you include this in your overall costs. Always think about this before you decide on a heating system. You’ll be pleased to know that with electricity there are no moving parts that need replacing with an electrical heating system. However, a gas boiler will need to be serviced regularly and safety checked, and in a rented property, an annual safety inspection of the gas system is legally required.

You have control

With electrical heating systems you have more control, and the thermostat is simple to operate. Because you have accurate controls the heaters will respond to a change in the room temperature faster. The level of heat will be increased or reduced to help keep the room warm enough without being uncomfortable for the occupants.

An electrical heating system will provide you with continuous heat all day when you need it with a consistent temperature so you don’t waste any energy. It’ll also help you avoid condensation and moisture, which can cause its own set of problems.
