The purpose of this project was to evaluate the effectiveness of new electric boilers (Amptec C1200 electric boiler, manufactured by Heatrae Sadia) installed in a housing estate in central England. The project studied 10 households and evaluated the cost associated with the boilers in comparison to the previous heating system and compared to expected costs of using a system fuelled by mains gas, along with the householders understanding of the electric heating system.
