Electric boilers have been around for a very long time, and are still used in industrial, commercial and residential buildings.
How electric boilers work
Electricity, gas or wood-burning furnaces can power boilers. Electric boilers are considered the most powerful and the most widely used. After the electricity heats the water, the water supply is then distributed to supply wet central heating and hot water throughout the building.
Most modern electric boilers are installed with a microchip control system to regulate water temperature and output. Because of this, they generally run at about 99 percent efficiency. Ideally, the goal is to achieve maximum efficiency at minimum costs.
Advantages of electric boilers
Electric boilers can supply heat for in-floor radiant, hot water baseboard, and/or radiator systems. They come in a variety of sizes to suit any hot water needs. They are manufactured for any size home or office that has the appropriate lines or piping and can be pumped or gravity generated.
Unlike other heating options, if you own an electric boiler you will not have to concern yourself with gas leaks, pilot lights, ventilation problems, carbon monoxide poisoning, or back drafting.
