    I don't see allot of them so what brands to you guys recommend? Preferably something with multiple stages and outdoor reset. Think custom...

    radiant electric boilers

    Hello Josh,
    A great elec. boiler is the Electro Industries boilers. They have what you are looking for. CSCO has prices for them you can talk to Joey or Mike. Pac-West sales is the Rep. Brett has one in his own house. So what were you doing up at Lake Cavanaugh? Take care

    We did a design for another mechanical who installed a system up there. We just wired and fired it.. We have a few projects coming up in that area though. We are only about 20 minutes away.

    I will check out the boiler you recommended. Nice to know there is something stocked locally. I will ask Brett how he likes his. Think I'll get an unbiased answer?

    They aren't technically boilers, but the Laing EPR heaters are very compact and have a lot of control options. The EH-2 is great for bathrooms where there is no existing boiler.

    One negative about electric boilers is troubleshoot and service.

    I have a Thermolec, that stop heating this past May. I have a multimeter but I still can't figure what went. Call Thermolec in Canada, but they don't have a technical dept, and referred me to a distributor.

    I think it's time to but something else in its place, sad, because when this two year old boiler was working, It was great for the small radiant heat load I have.

    Josh, try

    this website www.alliedboilers.com made right here in North Vancouver.

    In the past 3 or 4 years, about 1/2 my installs have been electric. I too had problems with 3 out of 6 Thermolecs. (Singh, e-mail me, I actually got a service manual from them! 1 ran wild, contact "welded itself permantly closed" and spewed , on the other 2 the electronic relays were sized too small and fried).

    The Lion Boiler out of Winnipeg (3 installed, a couple for over 5 years now, with, touch wood, no problems) is very compact and seems well built. They have an add on kit for outdoor reset. www.conceptmfginc.com

    My favourite by far though is the Allied, with the BT control. They should have their OR electric in the very near future. Excellent company, and have always treated me with respect. Also, by being so near to you, it would be easy next day delivery if a part was needed.

    Hope this helps.
