Electric Central Heating or Gas Central Heating

Central Heating

Which of the two should you opt for?  Here are some of the pros and cons.

Electric central heating

The main benefit of installing electric central heating is that it is available to homes not on the gas grid. In addition, electric night storage heaters are easier to install than gas central heating apparatus, as far as central heating installation goes, mainly because they require fewer parts.

In terms of cons, it is worth noting that electric central heating is often more expensive as electricity unit prices are up to four times more costly than gas prices. On top of this, electric central heating storage heaters do not provide instant control. This means you will have to plan your heating needs ahead as switching the heating on at night means it will heat up for the next morning.

Gas central heating

The main advantage of gas central heating is that it is cheaper, per unit, than electricity. On top of this, gas boilers are getting more and more efficient. Replacing an old boiler with a new energy efficient one is pretty straightforward in terms of the installation process.  We are happy to prove a competitive quote.

Gas central heating boilers should also be serviced regularly to ensure they are in good working order.
