Electric Heating Vs Gas Central Heating Which Is Better
Electric Heating Vs Gas Central Heating On Efficiency
An A-rated Gas Boiler works at around 90-92% efficiency. Also, the nature of a central heating system pushing heated water through pipes means there are lost efficiencies. You will find the radiators closest to the boiler the warmest. However in many properties the further away you get the cooler the radiators are. This is because as the heater water travels it cools causing inefficiency in the system.
Compare this with Ceramic Core Electric Heating which is 100% efficient at the point of use. Which modular electric heating there is no loss in efficiency. There is no pipework and distance to travel therefore no loss of energy before getting to the heater.
Despite the ability to gain some control from thermostatic radiator valves generally with Gas central heating, most people turn the whole house on or have the whole house off. This can be very wasteful. If you think of how many rooms you are using at any one time. Ceramic Core Electric Heating is modular and so can be time and temperature controlled in each room. Allowing you to have different times and temperatures in different rooms giving you control of the efficiency of your system.
Electric Heating Vs Gas Central Heating On Maintenance.
One of the major advantages of electric heating over gas central heating is that there are no maintenance or servicing costs. Electric Heating is very clean and safe. Once it is installed there is no requirement for annual maintenance and servicing giving you peace of mind. Ceramic Core Electric Heating has no pipework as a result of this there is no risk of leaks which can cause damage to your property.
