Does anyone have any experience of electric-only boilers? If so please tell me what you think. I know that electricity is more expensive than gas. However, I also think I've heard that the government will be moving towards electric as the standard on new-builds, so as to make us as a nation more independent for our fuels. Am I barking up the wrong tree on either of these points? I have a small-ish terrace property, currently with gas as the source for central heating, hot water and my oven, although I know the latter is independent of the boiler.
