The Electromax 6 kW, designed and manufactured by Heatrae Sadia, combines an electric flow boiler with a hot water cylinder that’s available in models to suit radiators and underfloor heating.
Why choose an electric boiler?
Lowering the carbon emissions of homes is essential if the UK is to lower its carbon emissions. This means switching from predominantly gas and oil boilers to low-carbon alternatives. One such alternative is the electric boiler which doesn't produce any emissions as they work to heat the home.
Electric boilers have a number of other benefits too, including zero risk of a carbon monoxide leak, flexible installation and silent operation.
How efficient is the Electromax electric flow boiler?
Electromax electric boilers come with an integrated economy controller which helps to give it an efficiency rating of 99.8% - gas and oil boilers rarely achieve efficiencies of more than 93%. However, the ErP rating is a C for water and D for heat which appears low compared to other boiler types which are normally A-rated or above. This is because electricity generation is currently considered carbon intensive.
Where can an Electromax electric boiler be installed?
Both the radiator and underfloor heating Electromax boilers have been manufactured to the compact size of 1,476 x 550 x 600mm (HxWxD) and can be installed into a standard airing cupboard. Electric boiler installation is well known for being flexible as there’s no need for a flue pipe - unlike gas and oil boilers.
What are the key features of the Electromac 6 kW?
Electromax boilers are able to meet demand for central heating and domestic hot water at the same time and all that’s needed is a connection to an electricity supply and cold water mains. Within the unit is an integral 180 litre unvented cylinder which makes it possible for the system to deliver hot water at mains pressure and quickly fill up a bath. Thanks to having factory-fitted componentes, such as the circulating pump, installation is made much simpler which could see you save money.
Best of all, highly efficient performance along with money saving integration through the use of economy tariffs will keep your energy bills down to a minimum.
How long is the warranty period?
The Electromax boiler and controls are covered by a 2 year warranty and the hot water cylinder has an extensive 10 year parts and labour warranty.
