Dimplex provides electric boiler solution for homes

Suited to well-insulated dwellings where gas cannot be used, Dimplex’s Ascari electric boiler.
The Dimplex Ascari fully modulating electric boiler for domestic heating systems does not require a flue and is said to be ideal for heating smaller properties — especially in multi-occupancy buildings where the design does not allow for gas ventilation but wet radiators are the preferred choice. It is said to be ideally to areas offering Economy 10 and other similar tariffs. Maximum output power is 12 kW, and this can be set at 10, 6 or 4 kW. Ascari boilers can be readily integrated with alternative-energy sources such as solar thermal panels. An auto-adaptability function operates the central-heating system according to the heat characteristics of the property to minimise energy consumption. Controls, expansion vessel and pump are all built in.
