Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono - regular, system or combi?

The Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Is a Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono electric Flow boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your electric bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono electric Flow's output at 160 kW, which types of property would this Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono Electric Flow boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono Electric Flow boiler would make it a suitable installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono are

The size of the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Compact wall-mounted boilers have been the models of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. But many thousands of properties in the UK still have a floor-standing boiler like the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono. If you're interested in switching to a wall-mounted unit to create extra space in your property, bear in mind that there might be a premium on the installation work because you may need to replace your current piping.

Newer compact boilers mean lower electric bills and you could recover the cost of your investment from those savings within a few years.

E-Tech S 160kW Mono – non-condensing or condensing?

The reason why the Government required all non-electric boilers to be "condensing" in 2005 was that they were much more energy-efficient. Rather than letting all exhaust gases escape into the atmosphere through the flue as older boilers did, condensing boilers use the warmth present in these gases to, for example, reheat water coming back from your radiators via a secondary heat exchanger. As electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono do not burn any fuel, they are more efficient by design, there are no gases to recycle, and so they are not covered by the 2005 law.

Is the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono electric Flow boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono electric Flow would be a good choice for the environment.

Under current UK law, all gas and oil boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono was awarded an efficiency rating of 37% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

Some electric boilers tend to have a low efficiency score because the electricity they use for power is generated by burning fossil fuels, which creates high levels of carbon emissions that escape into the atmosphere. This is an unfair comparison because, in real life, virtually every electric boiler has an energy efficiency in operation of near 100%.

If the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.

Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono may be worth considering if you are looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

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 a Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono electric Flow boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

Whether this Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono Electric Flow boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher electric bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper electric bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono electric Flow is 160 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono Electric Flow boiler would make it a suitable installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono dimensions

The Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Many homeowners dislike the floor-standing boilers (like the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono) they have in their properties because they feel that they are bulky and take up too much room. If this is you and you want to replace what you have now with a compact, wall-mounted boiler, we can do this for you, although please note that you may need to pay for new piping.

The electric bill savings offered by modern boilers are significant, however, and you should be able to recoup your investment in a few years.

Is the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Gas and electric boilers create exhaust gases - condensing boilers capture and recycle these gases to, for example, reheat water coming back from your radiators. As electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono do not create exhaust gases during their operation, they do not need a secondary heat exchanger which all condensing boilers must contain - they are more efficient by design.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono electric Flow?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono electric Flow in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

In the UK, all gas and oil boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Prior to this, until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated as an "A" grade).

The Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono has been awarded an efficiency rating of 37% and a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

In reality, however, nearly every electric boiler on the market in Britain has an operating energy efficiency of close to 100%. Electric boiler energy efficiency appears low because the electricity generation process currently involves burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon intensive, and this is factored into the score. Here at PlumbProud, we don't believe this is comparing like with like.

What is the length of the warranty on the Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono?

A parts and labour warranty of 1 years is included with the Acv Acv E-Tech S 160kW Mono boiler.
