Having an electric boiler installed can act as a way of lowering your carbon footprint while also acting as a low-cost or no-cost home heating solution if you were to power it using an on-site solar array.

Along with safety and legal reasons (trying to fit an electric boiler DIY can result in death by electrocution or electrical fire), you must hire a qualified electrician to install an electric boiler to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

Let's dive in!

Understanding Your Heating Requirements

Before hiring an electrician to install an electric boiler, you’ll want to think through your heating needs to get an idea of the sort of electric boiler that might work best for you. Of course, you may not know exactly what you need but having some idea will help make the process run more smoothly, although you’ll want to verify the right model for you with the electrician regardless.

Here are some key heating criteria you’ll need to consider carefully:

  • The size of the area that needs heating
  • The suitable electric boiler capacity for heating your home
  • Specific electric boiler features required (e.g. smart home integration)
  • Other additions for heating your home (e.g. underfloor heating, solar panels etc.)
  • Whether you want to power your electric boiler from a green energy supplier *

*If this is the case, you’ll need to sign up for a green energy supplier at the right time and ensure your boiler can be powered correctly.

Ultimately, you’ll need to chat with the electrician you hire to discuss your needs and preferences. They can verify your needs and ensure that the electric boiler installed meets your expectations and requirements while installing it correctly as well.

Utilising Online MyJobQuote’s Directories

One way of using MyJobQuote to find a local electric boiler installation service is through our online electrician directory.

You can use this directory to find electricians in your area and by looking through their MyJobQuote profiles you can make evaluations based on their ratings, reviews and where available, even photos of their prior installations. This can help you gauge the quality of their service and all in all, these details can allow you to make an informed choice.

Verifying Installer Credentials

It’s important to verify the credentials of an electric boiler installer before hiring them. Of course, when using MyJobQuote you can be confident that all installers with profiles on our site are qualified as we rigorously check any professionals looking to join our services.

In general, you may want to request references from prior clients to assess an electrician in terms of their reliability, quality of work and customer service.

Engagement and Communication with Installers

It’s important that you maintain communication through the process from start to finish. This way you can clearly communicate your needs and expectations, raise any concerns you have and ensure that the process runs smoothly.

Some of the key considerations include:

  • What sort of electric boiler is needed
  • When the work will take place and how much it will cost
  • If any added expenses might apply
  • Query about any applicable warranties
  • Ask about boiler maintenance for the future

When it comes to raising concerns and questions, you should do so to the extent possible prior to the installation day.

That said, if you have anything you’d like to bring up on the day of instalment, be sure not to distract the electric boiler installer when they are in the middle of working unless, of course, it is an emergency (particularly since they will be working with electrics).

All in all, having a clear idea of what the work will involve (and ahead of time to the extent possible) can help limit unexpected headaches and help make sure you get what you anticipate with minimal hiccups.
