EHC Slim Jim 10KW Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is EHC’s Slim Jim 10KW - system, regular or combi?

If you are considering installing a electric Flow boiler in your house or flat, then the EHC Slim Jim 10KW boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Is the EHC Slim Jim 10KW electric Flow boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher electric bills.

Which types of property would this EHC Slim Jim 10KW Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for given its output of 10 kW?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this EHC Slim Jim 10KW Electric Flow boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for smaller homes and apartments with up to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is the EHC Slim Jim 10KW?

The EHC Slim Jim 10KW is 912 mm in height, 203 mm in width and 172 mm in depth.

Is the EHC Slim Jim 10KW condensing or non-condensing?

Electric boilers like the EHC Slim Jim 10KW are more economical in their fuel use than non-electric boilers. This is because electric boilers do not need to recycle the warmth contained in exhaust gases created from the burning of gas and oil, therefore they do not need to be modified to be condensing.

Is the EHC Slim Jim 10KW electric Flow environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a EHC Slim Jim 10KW electric Flow in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Until April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during normal operation.

The energy efficiency rating of the EHC Slim Jim 10KW is 100% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

The ERP ratings of this EHC Slim Jim 10KW Electric Flow boiler are however marked down because it's powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The EHC Slim Jim 10KW has been graded "D" by ERP assessors.

Some electric boilers receive lower ERP scores because of the carbon emissions created by the burning of fossil fuels to generate the electricity they use for power. This is unfair because the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - a level that no oil or gas boiler has yet reached.

What warranty does the EHC Slim Jim 10KW electric Flow boiler come with?

The EHC Slim Jim 10KW boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

EHC Slim Jim 10KW Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the EHC Slim Jim 10KW?

You may wish to consider installing the EHC Slim Jim 10KW if you are looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Should I install a EHC Slim Jim 10KW electric Flow boiler in my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your electric than you need to.

The EHC Slim Jim 10KW electric Flow boiler has an output of 10 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced heating engineer would say that this EHC Slim Jim 10KW Electric Flow boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is a EHC Slim Jim 10KW boiler?

The EHC Slim Jim 10KW measures 912 mm in height and has a width of 203 mm and a depth of 172 mm.

Slim Jim 10KW – non-condensing or condensing?

In order to protect the environment, the government required all new boilers in the UK to be "condensing" from 2005, although this law does not apply to electric boilers. This is because, unlike gas and oil boilers, electric boilers like the EHC Slim Jim 10KW do not produce hot exhaust gases that condensing boilers then recycle to reheat water coming back from the radiators in a home.

Is the EHC Slim Jim 10KW electric Flow boiler environmentally friendly?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing a EHC Slim Jim 10KW electric Flow help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

All boilers manufactured in the UK or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The EHC Slim Jim 10KW has been awarded 100% for its energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "D" rating.

But because it's powered by electricity, it's penalised in its ERP ratings.

The Energy Related Products Directive's intention is to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The EHC Slim Jim 10KW’s ERP rate is "D".

Why is it so low despite the fact that, operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99%? It's because the electricity these boilers draw for power is often generated by burning fossil fuels, which ERP assessors class as carbon-intensive. In our opinion, this is not comparing like for like.

Am I covered if my EHC Slim Jim 10KW electric Flow boiler breaks down?

On the EHC Slim Jim 10KW, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
