in general is very easy to install, therefore making installation costs
low. It doesn’t require any pipe-work, simply a connection to the
electrical circuit[s], so it can frequently be installed in a matter of
minutes. For refurbishments and replacements, it means minimal
disruption for the household. In relation to many customers can often just need to unpack the appliance and plug in to suitable socket!
often arises about the running costs of electric heating compared to
other fuels; however the cost of energy for different heating systems is
only part of the true running cost equation. The true cost to consider
is the lifetime costs of the system, which not only take into account
the fuel used, but the hidden maintenance costs – both monetary and time
- over its lifetime.
Electric fires are 100% efficient
at the point of use, meaning all the electricity used is converted
directly into heat. Because electric heating has virtually no moving
parts, most electric systems can be expected to last for at least 15
years, whereas the gas boiler industry itself quotes a lifetime of only
10 years for a boiler. Because electric heating is cheaper to install,
maintain and lasts an average of 50% longer than a gas system, the true
ownership costs means that an electric heating system can be a more cost effective solution for many homes.
