The boiling point of bromoethane is higher than that of chloroethane.Why?

The boiling point of bromoethane is higher than that of chloroethane because the bond between C and Cl is more polar than the bond between C and Br. Also, bromoethane has a larger molar mass and number of electrons is also more and so has a higher boiling point.
