Considering an Electric Boiler Dublin Residents Recommend ?

Usually considered as a last resort for people who cannot have a gas boiler installed (or don’t have access to the gas network), electric boilers provide a working solution for heating and hot water. In other cases, installing a gas boiler may be problematic – if the installation of a Gas Boiler requires extensive excavation work to reach the gas supply and your apartment needs to be turned upside down and torn apart in the process of connecting the boiler to the gas pipe, there will need to be a significant amount of unavoidable rebuilding work involved after the installation. Simply choosing an electric boiler for an apartment instead of a gas boiler could prevent this from happening.

The Difference Between Gas and Electric Boilers

Conventional boilers, those that use gas or oil, burn the fuel to generate heat. This heat is used to heat the water in the system to be used as needed. The only difference between conventional boilers and electric boilers is how the heat is generated – electric boilers simply use electricity to generate heat

If you’ve used electric space heaters before, you’ll recognise the concept, but may also be concerned about the efficiency and cost of installing an electric boiler.

Is-it-cheaper-to-heat-with-gas-or-electric

Is it cheaper to heat with Gas or Electric Boilers?

The amount you pay for your energy use, whether it’s gas or electric, will depend entirely on your contract with your energy supplier which makes a direct cost comparison difficult. Even asking “how much do electric boilers cost to run?” can be a tricky question.

Over the last few years, the technology used within gas boilers has progressed at a rapid rate. Boilers from 20 years ago may have started their life at 85% efficiency, and as boilers age, the level of efficiency drops. Modern gas boilers can achieve over 90% efficiency – less than 10% of the energy used is wasted. This is an inevitable issue with gas boilers as they will never be 100% efficient.

How much electricity does an electric boiler use? The simple answer is all of it! Electric boilers are close to 100% efficient as they don’t rely on burning fossil fuels to create heat, and therefore there is no energy loss through by-products of the process (such as the generation of light from a flame).

This means that if over a certain period, you need to use 100kw of energy to heat your home with a gas boiler, an electric boiler may only need to use 90kw over the same period. In short, it means a reduction in the amount of energy you use, which should lower the overall amount you pay.

After doing lots of research online I decided to get NRM to replace our boiler. They did great work and I was very pleased so I used them again later on to replace all our radiators. The lads even cut a bit off our radiator covers so they’d still fit over our new ones. Communication was also very clear and quick and prices also quite reasonable. Very professional team all around. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Got a combi boiler installed and full conversion to gas from oil central heating with all rads replaced in the house. Killian was great in laying out what would be involved in the work and the quote, had a date set and was given option of sooner with a cancellation. Very quick to respond to any queries we had before the work started. Brian was great in carrying out the work. Everything was extremely tidy and well done, he even moved some of the pipework after based on our preference. Work was of a very high standard.

UPDATED July 2023.NRM are - and will remain - our GO-TO plumbers for their consistent excellence. Highly recommended.Killian (manager/owner/engineer) is a straight-talker, honest & forthright: he provides the requisite information without any glossing over - an especially important quality when faced with major renovation decisions. He is also a very patient chap & an assured professional. Brian (our engineer) was kind, patient & most helpful. My concerns were not only alleviated (about our complicated heating 'system') but more significantly, I found myself able to rely on these chaps for our current & future needs.

We had 4 new modern radiators installed which replaced the old type of rads installed in Irish houses 20 years ago.I purchased the rads myself and all through the process Killian was just an email away for advice on size and BTU, he was even there on Sunday to answer any queries I had.We are in the process of renovating our house so we have dealt with alot of different companies and contractors over the past 15 months. My advice would be if they want to be successful they should follow Killian and NRM's model of professionalism.From price to workmanship NRM is one of the best companies I've dealt with.Adrian was the plumber who fitted our rads and you can tell he's been doing this a long time, we have Plywood instead of floor boards and he had to cut them out to replace the pipework as the new rads are a smaller profile than the old ones, he put the floor back as if it’s never been cut , the pipework looks great perfectly straight the way it should be.If your looking for a professional company with outstanding workmanship and communication skills well then this is them.

Killian and the team at NRM Plumbing did multiple projects around our house including gas boiler installation, heating system installation, kitchen and bathroom plumbing and more. From the first project to the last, they were extremely professional, responsive, and did all the work to the highest degree of quality. It was wonderful to interact with them and our house has been completely transformed and made far more efficient and comfortable thanks to their efforts. Also we appreciated how clean all their work was from start to finish. We will not hesitate to work with them again, and highly recommend their services.

We cannot recommend Killian, Brian and team highly enough. They helped us with a very urgent toilet installation - from helping to source the correct toilet to proving a very quick quote including labour and materials. Brian persevered with a very tricky installation and managed to have everything fitted and working perfectly by the time he left. He also left the place spotless. Thanks Killian, Brian and team! A+

Excellent gas boiler replacement recently by a professional team.Had an old faulty gas boiler that needed an urgent replacement a couple of months ago. NRM Plumbing already did excellent job for me before so asked them for a visit and a quote. Bryan showed up the next day and examined my setup, then a few weeks later did a quick, clean and professional work to replace the system together with Reece.

Massive thanks to Adrian, Reece who completed the works in my house.They replaced and old water tank in the attic with some pipe work changed, removed a tricky old central heating pump in a tiny awkward spot and replaced it with a modern pump so when can now use our back boiler again, and also removed old large radiator in the kitchen removed and fitted a newer one. The works completed fast, lads on time, clean and friendly. I will definitely use NRM in the future. Big thanks to you all.

NRM Plumbing and Heating is the company to employ, if you're looking for a boiler upgrade. You won't find better. They are extremely professional, take pride in their work, are always on time, are easy to contact, and have a solution for every problem. I had quite a few, the most serious of which was kerosene, lying in a pipe underneath my house. They not only replaced my old inefficient oil boiler, which was inside the house, with a super efficient external boiler, but solved all my problems. They fully deserve their 87 five star rating.Thank you Killian, Adrian, and John for a job well done.

I contacted NRM Plumbing and Heating following a recommendation. I required a gas boiler upgrade and immersion cylinder replacement. Killian contacted me promptly and within a few days I received a very competitive quote for the work required. Work commenced within a week and consisted of the removal of an old gas boiler from an external boiler house and the installation of a high efficiency Viessmann gas boiler in my attic, a new immersion cylinder with Smart controls and ancillary works. The work was completed by Larry and Brian over two days in a highly efficient and professional manner. I am extremely impressed with their standard of work and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Your Electric Boiler Questions Answered !

Are Electric Boilers as Good as Gas?

Electric boilers are certainly more efficient than gas boilers, but is all-electric better than gas? There are other factors that can help you decide.

Electric boilers are compact and require less preparation for installation – they simply need connecting to your water system and the electric supply. If space is at a premium, an electric boiler could be the best choice. Because of their compact size and flexibility in connections, you may find you have more options for the installation location of an electric boiler in comparison to a gas boiler.

Electric radiators can also be installed to provide heat when you need it, replacing water-filled radiators. As with all things, technology has advanced, and modern electric radiators are an extremely efficient option. With standard radiators, heat will dissipate as the water travels through the pipes around your home – there’s no such issue with a fully electric system.

A further benefit is related to the operation of the internals of the boiler. Electric boilers don’t require as many moving parts as gas or oil boilers which means they require less maintenance. If there are fewer parts to break, there’s less chance of a breakdown!

The reduction in moving parts also reduces the level of noise the boiler generates. Modern gas boilers have reached a stage where they operate very quietly, but electric boilers can be even quieter. You’ll hear a gas boiler igniting, but an electric boiler doesn’t ignite – it just heats up.

Unlike gas and oil boilers, there is no need to install a flue and no chance of fuel leakage. This makes them safer to use with no risk of carbon monoxide leaks, and it can help with moving away from a reliance on fossil fuels. Electric boilers are more eco-friendly than their conventional counterparts but remember that electricity production may be based on burning fossil fuels.

Electricity production and supply is one final point to consider. If you have a gas boiler and experience a power cut, the boiler may continue working to provide heat for your home. However, an electric boiler will cease operation when the power is cut. While power cuts are not a common occurrence, it is something to consider, especially if you live in a remote area.

Are Electric Boilers the Future?

New legislation is being introduced that bans the installation of gas and oil boilers in newly built homes in the next few years. Electric boilers can make ideal replacements for these homes, but other options are available – solar energy, wind energy, and heat pumps are some of the popular alternatives.

While there are no plans to ban oil or gas boiler replacements in existing homes, should the time come, electric boilers would be a viable alternative that can simply slot into your existing heating system.

What Size Electric Boiler Do I Need?

The size of the electric boiler relates to the heating it produces rather than directly reflecting its physical size. Electric boilers are available in a range of sizes, and the size you need will be determined by the size of your home and your usage patterns.

The team at NRM Plumbing and Heating will be happy to advise on the appropriate electric boiler for your home. Simply get in touch and we’ll guide you through the process of choosing and installing an energy-efficient electric boiler.
