Designed and manufactured by the Electric Heating Company, the SlimJim electric flow boiler 10 kW is a floor-standing unit best suited to small homes and flats.
Why choose an electric boiler?
The burning of fossil fuels, such as natural gas and oil, to heat homes simply isn’t sustainable and increases the amount of carbon in the atmosphere - one of the major causes of climate change. Electricity is one of the possible alternatives as it offers a number of benefits, including: no carbon emissions, zero risk of a carbon monoxide leak, quick response to turning the central heating on, flexible installation, no need for a flue or condensate pipe and fewer moving parts which reduces the chance of a fault.
How efficient is a SlimJim electric boiler?
SlimJim electric boilers are highly efficient and have a 100% efficiency rating - making them more efficient than even the most efficient of gas and oil boiler. Despite this, electric boilers have a low D-rating from ErP, a result of electricity production which is considered carbon intensive as in most cases it involves the burning of fossil fuels.
Is a SlimJim Electric Flow boiler right for my home? With an output rating of 10kW, this electric boiler is best suited to smaller homes with one bathroom and around 8 radiators.
Does the SlimJim range offer any alternative options?
The Electric Heating Company offer a number of outputs in this range, including: 4 kW, 10 kW, 12 kW and 14.4kW. The 4 kW is suitable for the smaller homes with 3-4 radiators, a 12 kW model that suits homes with 8 radiators and the 14.4kW is best for larger homes with 10 radiators
What are the key features of the SlimJim electric boiler range?
