How Do Electric Boilers/Heaters Work?

For many years, the majority of UK households have relied on gas boilers to provide their homes with heating and hot water.

Yet this is set to change with the UK goal to become carbon neutral or net-zero by 2050 and as a result, there is growing pressure to phase out gas boilers over the coming years.

Additionally, over 2 million households in the UK do not have access to the mains gas network and a vast number of other properties can not use gas due to flue restrictions on older/listed buildings.

For this reason, electric boilers and heaters are a popular and growing alternative to gas heating.

But how do they work exactly?

How Do Electric Boilers Work?

Just like a traditional gas combi boiler, an electric boiler is fed with cold water from the mains water supply.

Electricity is fed to the boiler from the mains electricity supply to the heating element within the boiler and they work essentially like giant kettles – using electricity and a metal element to heat the water.

The cold water is passed over the metal heating element and heat is transferred, resulting in hot water that can be supplied to the radiators and taps on-demand or from a hot water storage cylinder.

The exact way in which the boiler works in terms of heating and storing the water depends on the type of electric boiler/heater used.
