Stay Warm & Safe with Professional Electric Heating Services

There are numerous ways your home can utilize electricity for heat. Electricity can be converted into heat through a water heater to provide hot water for showers or washing dishes and clothes. Electricity can even be a heat source for the entire home using an electric furnace, electric baseboard heaters, electric convection heaters and even electric radiant floors. Electric resistance heating converts almost 100% of its energy into heat, making it an extremely efficient option for homeowners.

Proper installation and maintenance of any electric heating appliance in your home are key. Here are a few reasons why it is a good idea to leave the work to an experienced professional:

  • If the heating unit is not installed properly, it can be useless and sometimes even hazardous for your home.
  • Installing electrical appliances requires a precise hand to reduce the risk of damage, fire, and electrocution.
  • Older homes often have outdated wiring systems that are no longer up to code, making it tricky to follow installation recommendations.

Bradley Mechanical has a top-notch team of heating and electrical experts available to install, repair, and check up on your electric heat unit. We recommend scheduling routine maintenance on your heating unit twice a year; this way your electrical heat is ready to take on colder weather with no interruptions.

Enjoy the Many Benefits of Electrical Heating

Switching to an electrical heating appliance or replacing an old one provides homeowners with numerous benefits, including:

  • Lower energy bills. Electric heating systems, like electric water heaters and stoves, are less expensive to purchase, use and repair. Due to their energy efficiency, you'll use less energy to provide heat to your home.
  • Simple installation. Since there is no external line hookup necessary to install an electrical appliance besides an electrical power source, installation is quick and painless.
  • Increased safety. The heating unit is powered by electricity only, drastically reducing the risk of fire hazards and gas leaks.
  • Longer lifespan. Electrical heating units are less likely to break down simply due to fewer moving parts within the unit.
  • Cleaner energy. Electrical heat is the way to go if you want to help reduce your carbon footprint. The heater does not need to burn fossil fuels to produce heat or release carbon monoxide.

The team at Bradley Mechanical can walk you through the ins and outs of electric heating services so you can make an informed decision for your home. No matter what kind of electric heating system you have or want, you can trust our technicians to take care of your every need.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my heat source is gas or electric?

If you are looking at your heating unit and see a blue flame through the glass window, that means your home's heat runs on gas. You will not see the inside of an electric heater, as they create heat through the electricity that flows through the unit. If you are still unsure about what kind of heat your house has installed, call the experts at Bradley Mechanical to come out and look for you.

How does electric heat work?

Electric heat is created by the electricity flowing through the unit, heating the air inside. The unit has a filter that pulls air through, and once that air is heated with electricity, it is pushed out through a separate filter.
