US Boiler Company introduces the Ambient Electric BoilerGlobalSpec News Desk | November 16, 2023
U.S. Boiler Company has introduced the Ambient Electric Boiler for residential customers looking to modernize and electrify their hydronic heating systems.
The single-phase Ambient Electric Boiler is an ultra-compact, wall-hung boiler designed and supported by industry-leading hydronic experts. The boiler is available in three capacities: 16 kW, 20 kW and 24 kW, or 54,600 BTU/hour, 68,200 BTU/hour and 82,000 BTU/hour, respectively. Supply water temperatures between 90° F and 180° F can be provided, using field-proven electric elements.
Built for long-term consumer reliability, the boiler’s ASME Section IV stamped heat exchanger is assembled and welded in the U.S. The cabinet is constructed of robust coated galvanized steel, and the system automatically cycles element usage.
The boiler features a proven control that provides dual setpoint operation, load management control and operation monitoring, with fault and dry-fire protection.
The new electric boiler can be installed quickly and inexpensively because venting, fuel supply and provision of combustion air are not required. The unit weighs 54 pounds, and connections to the heat exchanger are on top, meaning that the system does not need to be drained in order to service the element.
To further simplify installation, an integral anti-short cycle-timer and two 60 A circuit breakers are included. A flow switch, ASME 30 PSI pressure relief valve, pump switching relay and secondary manual reset hi-limit are also included. The electric boiler is compatible with copper and aluminum wire (aluminum prohibited in Canada). The new boiler is CSA C22.2 listed/UL 834 listed and features enhanced, individual element relays.
The Ambient Electric Boiler comes with a two-year parts and labor warranty and a 20-year heat exchanger warranty. Regional electrification incentives may apply.
