The Perfect Heating Solution where Space is at a Premium

With much discussion and debate on how to solve the UK’s housing crisis, recent Government plans are considering Modular Homes as a solution. The design and build of modular homes might be simple and affordable but what heating source will be used to keep them warm? A gas grid connection or renewable heating source may not be economical therefore Electric Heating could be the answer.

The Electric Heating Company’s SlimJim electric boiler could be perfect for Modular Homes. The compact design of the SlimJim boiler makes it ideal for heating applications where space is at a premium. The Slim Jim is a fully controllable electric flow boiler which is designed to maximise cupboard space. The SlimJim provides the flexibility and controllability that a gas fired central heating system offers. Using standard pipe-work, conventional wet system radiators and thermostatic radiator valves the boiler, being 100% efficient and fully modulating, will take the same amount of time to heat the property. As no flue is involved and no gas analysis required the installation of the system will be a lot quicker than that of a gas system boiler.

The SlimJim has a versatile range of outputs from 4kW to 14.4kW and therefore is adaptable to the size of Modular Home being built and insulation levels of the Modular Home. The SlimJim can be used in an ‘S’ Plan configuration to enable you to select Heating only, Hot Water or both at the same time. The SlimJim electric boiler is 100% efficient, silent in operation, easy to fit and comes with a two-year manufacturers warranty meaning it ticks all the boxes for a Modular Home’s heating requirement.
