What Is Electric Heating?
Electric heating refers to the process of converting electrical energy into heat either directly through electric radiators or into your pipes of you have a wet electric central heating system. Electric boilers and other heating systems contain electric resistors which act as heating elements.
Although electric heating generally is more expensive than the energy you get from fuel combustion, the cleanliness, convenience, and reduced space are incomparable. Many homeowners also believe that electric heating is a better solution, especially for environmental reasons and longer term use.
With electric radiators the heat comes from electric strips or coils, which unlike gas central heating, can be installed almost anywhere in your home.
Electric – The Future of Central Heating
According to some research, domestic heating accounts for almost 40% of the total carbon emissions in the U.K. Currently, the majority of households use gas-fired boilers to ensure warm water and temperatures throughout the year. However, gas is not always available in certain areas of Scotland and produces carbon emissions, so people often have to consider alternatives such as electric heating.
The U.K government has looked at possible solutions for a low carbon economy and decided to shift toward electric heating. Electric systems such as electric radiators, heaters, boilers, and heat pumps are considered to be appropriate technologies for residential and commercial properties.
When looking at the future, the government is committed to reducing carbon emissions and focusing on green solutions to ensure a healthier and happier environment for citizens. Due to the likely shift to electric heating by 2050, we are all hoping to see lower CO2 emissions. Electric heating is much more efficient and safer as it converts fuel into heat, keeping your property warm while reducing the overall radiation.

The majority of customers who contact us have either just bought or rented a flat in Edinburgh or they are landlords with a flat or multiple flats that have electric heating or storage heaters installed in them.
Old electric storage heaters where installed in most new build flats anywhere from as far back as 1950 well into the early to mid 2000’s.
Modern Electric Heating Benefits
As more and more people choose electric central heating instead of gas-powered systems, they wonder about the benefits these solutions provide. Here are some of the benefits you can expect when you decide to replace storage heaters or traditional boilers.
While some claim that the initial cost savings counteract in the long run due to the high cost per electrical unit vs. the cost per gas unit, it is not true. The latest price projections show that the gas cost is expected to grow, and gas production is expected to decline.
Electric heating units have a lower upfront cost than gas-powered systems. Besides, electric heating systems last longer than gas or oil boilers (some last 50% longer). The reason is internal moving parts, which decrease the risk of a malfunction or tear and wear compared to other heating options.
Electric radiators and boilers are safer than alternatives because they don’t burn fuel to generate heat. As a result, none of the common safety risks such as explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning is possible. Besides, electric systems are silent in operation.
Ease of Installation
Wet electric heating systems and other electric-powered solutions are quick and easy to install because there is no complex pipework. All you need is a stable connection to the electrical circuit, meaning you can install electric radiators or electric storage heaters anywhere on the property and with minimal disruption.
At Home Renewables Scotland, we understand how vital the process of installing new electric heaters or radiators in your home is. We use the latest tools and equipment to ensure fast and efficient installation without disturbing you, your family, or your employees.
Electric heating systems are 100% efficient. For example, if you pay for 10kW of electricity, you will get and use 10kW of heat. Compared to other options, these numbers are much higher. Conventional or gas-powered systems lose heat through flues, meaning you will get less and pay for more electricity.
