What is an electric water heater?

We all expect hot water as standard in our homes so we can do things like wash dishes and take hot showers; electric water heaters provide this hot water, but unlike boilers they don’t supply water to the central heating system.

Things to consider about your water heater

We know that thinking about how your water is heated is not on everyone’s list of fun things to do. But it’s worthwhile taking time to think about it, whether you need a new hot water heater now or in the future, so you understand which option is best for you and your family.

In this article, we’ll look at:

  • the differences between a traditional boiler and an electric hot water heater;
  • cost implications to consider when making your choice;
  • how the technology actually works; and
  • what environmental impact gas and electric heaters can have.

At Best Electric Radiators we want to give you all the information you need to make the right choice when it comes to hot water heaters. We passionately believe that electricity is the cleanest and most efficient way to heat water for the home. And when you see the savings that you can make, you might have something left over to pay for something more fun than a water heater!

The right type of water heater for you

If you’re reading this article, you probably want to learn more about electric water heaters such as our Velis Evo and Velis Evo Wi-Fi, and whether they are the right choice for you and your family. Here are some things to think about.


The cost of installing, running and maintaining a water heater is likely to be high up on your list of things to think about. The good news is that an electric water heater is a very cost-effective option to choose.

Installing any water heater will cost money as a trained fitter is usually required, but the running costs of electric water heaters are generally significantly lower than for equivalent gas heaters. That’s because they convert more of the energy they use into heating the water. They use a coiled element to do this, rather than relying on burning gas for heat. And because they are cleaner to operate than gas, they require less costly maintenance to keep them running properly.

Clean energy

In the past, many homes relied on a gas boiler for their hot water, and though these are still widely used, many modern homes are now all electric. The UK, along with most other countries, is prioritising clean energy, which means that an increasing proportion of our electricity is made through wind power or solar energy. These sources of renewable energy emit no polluting greenhouse gases, and so do not contribute to global warming, which is so harmful to the environment.

Electric water heaters use this clean energy. They are the preferred option for modern housebuilders and homeowners who also want to play their part in becoming greener. They’re clean, quiet, easy to operate and highly efficient, meaning that they also deliver substantial cost savings on annual energy bills.

Energy Efficiency

A lot of time and money has been invested into developing cleaner, more efficient products recently as countries try to become more eco-friendly. Electric water heaters are amongst some of the best-in-class when it comes to energy (ErP) ratings. There are now several standards and legal requirements in place that help consumers to see how much energy their appliances will use, enabling them to more easily choose the most efficient.

Best Electric Radiator’s Velis Evo water heaters boast some of the highest ErP ratings and are highly efficient, meaning that you’ll always have hot water on demand when you need it.

The benefits of electric water heaters

The unique technology in our Velis Evo range – the first of its kind in the UK – reduces uneven heating known as stratification, so you get more hot water for your money, compared to other water heaters.

Faster hot water

Electric water heaters reduce wait times for hot showers and can be shower-ready in 30-50 minutes.

Anti-legionella and ABS Safety

A suite of integrated safety functions ensures your electric water heater never overheats, freezes up, or dry-heats – and a monthly reminder heats the system to 65 degrees to combat legionella bacteria.

No matter where you are, with the handy app you can turn the system on remotely, alter settings and receive alerts, saving you up to 25% on your energy costs. Plus with Alexa and Google Home connectivity you can now control your Eco Wi-Fi heater via voice commands.
