“The type of boiler we use is a fundamental part of our home.
It decides the heating costs you pay, the ease of use you enjoy, and the things you need to bear in mind as a homeowner. But between gas and electric boilers – which is better?
Gas vs Electric Boilers
Electric boilers are cheaper to buy, easier to install, smaller, and don’t need connected to a gas line. However, gas boilers are cheaper to run than electric boilers, and are more powerful. Choose an electric boiler for a small property or supplemental heat, and gas for a larger house.
Although there’s a wide range of boilers for each type, gas is generally much more capable than electric.
The power of a flame beats out the heating potential of electric, making gas boilers much more capable.”

One of the major benefits of an electric boiler is that it is super easy to install. There is no exhaust nor does a gas line need to be hooked up to it. However, smaller homes likely won’t likely get as much heat produced as they would with a gas boiler.
