Boilers, in sizes ranging from 10 kW to 27 kW, are available through McLeod Cooperative Power. These are most commonly used for Dual Fuel; when an electric boiler is added to a gas or oil boiler. Contact the Cooperative or your plumber/HVAC contractor for proper sizing of a boiler. Electric boilers with an automatic back-up are eligible for the off-peak program.
Mini-boilers are available in 4.5 kW and 9.0 kW sizes. They are quite popular for heating water/glycol solutions that circulate through sub floor tubing, otherwise known as radiant or hydronic heating. Everyone wants the warm floors in their basement or shop and this is one way to get it. Mini-boilers can be used to heat the floors on the off-peak electric rate when they have an automatic back-up system such as a forced air furnace.
Mini-boilers are compact. They mount on a wall and are easily installed. These models are comparable to a 15,000 and 30,000 BTU per hour fossil fuel boiler.
Contact the Cooperative or your plumber/HVAC contractor for prices.
