Maybe you recently purchased a home with a large oil or gas heating system, but you are not impressed with their performance. Thus, you really want to upgrade to an electric heating system but are not sure about the cost. There are factors to consider when estimating the overall cost of installation.
First, the cost of upgrading the heating system in your home will depend on the size of the house and the number of radiators you are going to need. You should also know how far the source of electricity is because that will also add to the overall cost.
Some houses will readily have radiators and an existing pipework. However, some homes will need a complete upgrade, so the process will cost a lot of money. For instance, if we are looking at a 3 bedroom house in the UK, you will spend anywhere from around £8,000 - £16,000 to upgrade from an oil or gas system to an electric one.
The cost of upgrading the heating system is also dependent on the company that is doing the work. Therefore, before you commence the project, make sure to shop around for some of the best, reputable, affordable installers in your region. Most of them will inspect your home, write down the list of requirements, factor in labour cost, and come up with a budget that you can easily afford.
