Hi all. This isn't a direct issue, more of a musing after a discussion the other day with my dad (ex plumber) and just wondered what people thought. We were talking about the 2025 gas boiler phasing out and I posed the question could houses go boilerless.....ok, I know, but hear me out. So with new electric tech (and obviously this will come down in price a little and get smarter/more efficient) could you do this: Radiators/towel rails: replace with smart electric Bathroom hot taps: electric instant heating unit Showers: electric showers (that ones easy!) Kitchen hot tap: boiling water tap or electric instant heater Could also go one step further and of course have all electric kitchen appliances so eliminate any gas need at all. Now obviously the downsides will be: 1. Cost of installation and to run cabling for all these 2. The fact electric bill will be BIG, if you frequently bath (which we rarely do) I suspect this would be very pricey. 3. Mains draw will be significantly increased, especially in winter of course. But I can see advantages too, namely: 1. Switching to smart tech (especially individually controlled radiators and only heating water when actually needed) may drastically decrease usage/wastage 2. No boiler to service/maintain/have to replace (not sure how long lasting under sink heating units are but they would be much cheaper than a boiler to replace) 3. Redundancy, any faults and you still have hot water/heating in a lot of the house if one part fails, as opposed to being solely reliant on boiler for heating and hot water. 4. No pesky leaks or issues with pipes/valves/radiators corroding. Anyway, was just a silly discussion and wondered what others thought, (apart from just "the electric bill will be huge!!!) But replacing a boiler and sorting plumbing issues isn't cheaper either!
