Electric Central Heating Systems

Electric Central Heating Systems can adopt a similar approach to conventional central heating with traditional radiators fed by hot water flowing through pipes and heated by an electric boiler, such as the McDonald Water Storage ELECTRAflow.
This form of Electric Central Heating is more commonly referred to as Electric Wet Central Heating and has grown in popularity as people look to move away from the less efficient night storage heating systems.
The Electric Wet Central Heating System, is regularly used in a wide range of properties from new builds to refurbishments. It is particularly suited to multi-storey buildings and apartments within high rise flats, as well as rural homes with no natural gas supply, as an alternative to LPG and oil-fired boilers. But Electric Central Heating offers so many more benefits that simply as a last alternative when gas is not available.
By using Electric Central Heating you can also enjoy the benefits of:
  • No gas certification required to install the system
  • No annual boiler maintenance
  • No flue required, making it easy to install anywhere in the property
  • 100% efficiency on heat transfer
  • No need for gas pipes to enter the building and no external oil or LPG tanks

Types of Electric Wet Heaters

The Electric Central Heating system can use a number of different boiler systems, however Thermal Store units offer the most flexibility, generally suiting all tariffs, as well as being able to incorporate multiple fuel sources such as solar, solid fuel and certain heat pumps.
Unvented electric wet and Vented electric wet boilers are also readily available as sometimes these may be a better option for certain applications.
