Presentation of the electric boiler

The main function of the electric boiler is to distribute heat to heat transmitters (radiators, underfloor heating …). But it also has a second role: providing your home with hot water. To provide hot water, the boiler must be connected to a hot water tank (the cumulus). Many electric boilers are available to the general public, but wall-mounted electric boilers and electric floor boilers are most common.

The price of the machine can vary according to brand, performance as well as quality. A high-quality electric boiler costs on average 1000 €. We offer the cheapest high-quality electric boiler option on the market starting at 649 €.

Device operation

The electric boiler heats your home thanks to several water emitters placed throughout the premises. The boiler operates in a closed circuit.

  • the water is heated by electrical resistance;
  • it is transferred through the boiler to the radiators;
  • hot water emits heat via the radiators;
  • cold water descends while hot water rises;
  • the cooled water returns to the boiler without leaving the circuit to be heated and the cycle recommences.

Once in place, simply connect the boiler to the cold water system so that the heating process can begin.
