Electric Boilers Heat Spaces Evenly
On cold mornings I dread getting out of bed. I know that the air in my room is not nearly as warm as it is under my covers. Furthermore, I know that the air in the hallway directly outside my closed door is significantly colder than it is in my enclosed room. Because my bedroom door was closed all night, heated air coming from the hair vents was not able to be distributed evenly in the apartment, making it nearly unbearable to get out of bed in the morning.
One of the attributes for which electric boilers are best known is their ability to distribute heat evenly, up to 1,000 square feet of space. Even though they are small, they are powerful. They are advantageous because they are easy to install and typically can be hooked up to any normal piping systems. They also do not directly contribute to the emission of air pollutants because they are run by electricity, not fuel such as coal, wood or natural gas. Since they do not run off fuel, leaks in pipes are not as concerning because dangerous gases like carbon monoxide are not emitted.
They do, however, contribute to air pollutants indirectly. Because they are always connected to electricity and electricity runs on fossil fuels that are in turn released back into the air as pollutants, electric boilers have some disadvantageous aspects as well.
Electric boilers consume a lot of energy in order to function, making electricity bills very high. Compared to other boilers, electric boilers are less expensive in the beginning and are more expensive once they are up and running because of the high electricity costs and maintenance and repairs typically need to be done by a trained professional.
Electric boilers can be found in both residential and commercial units for the means of heat generation.
