Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new electric Flow boiler.

Boilers traditionally required the installation of one or more large tanks around your property. These were filled with water that was either being heated or was to be heated later. British homes are among the smallest in the world so, to solve the space problem, manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to offer homeowners the warmth and hot water supply they needed while taking up much less space.

A combi boiler is designed to heat both radiators and taps on demand and at the same time. Water from the mains passes through a combi boiler and the boiler's technology instantly turns it into hot water. Your boiler then distributes the hot water throughout your home.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum water volume capacity. What this means is that, if one person is using the shower while another uses a hot tap simultaneously, less water gets to each area, resulting in a fall in water pressure at both points.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your electric than you need to.

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow boiler has an output of 15 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow E-Tech W would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono have?

The size of the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

There is no legal requirement in the UK for electric boilers to be condensing as there is for gas and oil boilers. This is because electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono do not burn fuel during their operation nor do they create exhaust gases that condensing boilers then extract the warmth from, for example, to heat water coming back from the radiators in a home. Electric boilers are more efficient by design than non-electric boilers.

Is the electric Flow Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono boiler energy efficient?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

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.

Would choosing a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

By law, all gas and oil boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Until April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during operation.

The energy efficiency rating of the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono is 37% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

How is this so given that electric boilers are nearly always more efficient than their gas and oil counterparts, with an operational rating around the 98% to 99% mark, in most cases? Some electric boilers score very low for energy efficiency because the electricity they draw for power is often generated by burning fossil fuels. In our opinion, this is unfair on electric boilers.

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono boiler?

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 1 years after installation.

Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you’re looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono.

Traditional boilers have one or two tanks - one holds hot water to keep it warm and the other water for later heating. Because UK residential property is among some of the smallest in the world, manufacturers introduced combi boilers and the heat pumps that go in them in the 1970s to reduce the amount of space boilers needed to take up.

The hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand when you have a combi boiler. Combi boilers use technology located within the boiler to heat cold water, which it draws from the mains, and to distribute hot water where it's needed around your home.

A combi boiler, however, has the disadvantage of a maximum capacity for the amount of water it can heat. The result is that if someone uses the shower while another uses a hot water tap simultaneously, the amount of water reaching each point falls, causing water pressure to drop.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow boiler a suitable choice for my property?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for electric than you need to.

The output of the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow is 15 kW, so which types of property would this Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced heating engineer would say that this Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono Electric Flow boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono boiler?

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono occupies a space of TBC mm high by TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

E-Tech W 15kW Mono – condensing or non-condensing?

The law passed in 2005 requiring all boilers installed in the UK to be "condensing" boilers does not apply to electric boilers. This is because, unlike non-electric boilers, electric boilers do not burn either gas or oil to operate and create no hot exhaust gases that can be recycled. Electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono are more efficient and economical by design.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow be a suitable choice?

By law, gas and oil boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono was given an efficiency rating of 37% with a SEDBUK rating of "D".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

Given that, operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99%, why the low score? It's because the electricity used to power the boiler is generated through the burning of fossil fuels and this is considered carbon-intensive. As a result, some boilers are (in our opinion) unfairly scored down.

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono boiler?

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.
