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

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow boiler is worth considering if you want a electric Flow boiler.

Traditionally, most boilers required you to find space in your property for one or more large storage tanks. These tanks would either keep water warm or hold it in reserve for later heating. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to offer homeowners the same level of warmth and hot water without taking up as much space – remember that the UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world.

With a combi boiler, the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is provided on demand. Water from the mains passes through your combi boiler and the technology within it instantly heats the cold water. It then distributes that hot water around your home.

The biggest drawback for combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity in volume for heating water. This means that if someone wants to use the shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point falls, resulting in a drop in water pressure.

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

Whether this Acv E-Tech W 15kW 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 W 15kW Mono electric Flow is 15 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level 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 Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

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

Because electric boilers operate differently from non-electric boilers, they are not covered by the law which requires all boilers to be "condensing". That's because they don't actually burn fuel in your home. Condensing gas and oil boilers recycle the warmth present in exhaust gases created through the burning of fuel to reheat water coming back from radiators.

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

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all gas and oil boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your electric bills.

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono was awarded an efficiency rating of "37%", equivalent to a "D" rating on the SEDBUK system.

Why is it so low despite the fact that, operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99%? It's because the electricity they draw for power is often generated by burning fossil fuels, which assessors class as a carbon-intensive activity. In our opinion, this is not comparing like for like.

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty on the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono covers all repair-related costs for 1 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

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

What kind of boiler is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono - standard, combi or system?

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

A combi boiler could be a better choice than a standard boiler if space is at a premium in your home. Combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank.

Water is heated on demand and then distributed directly to your taps and showers. This means that combi boilers use less fuel and so reduce your electric bills.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a limited volume of water at any given time. If more than one tap or shower is in use, the hot water supply to both could be restricted and both the water pressure and temperature will drop.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow boiler from the E-Tech W range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono boiler?

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono is TBC mm high by TBC mm wide by TBC mm deep.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono non-condensing or 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 environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

Gas and oil boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning that they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono has been assigned an efficiency rating of 37% with a SEDBUK rating of "D".

This is very low but why? In reality, nearly every electric boiler on the market has an energy efficiency in operation of near 100%. However, electric boiler energy efficiency appears low on some models because the electricity generation process currently involves burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the score - unfairly, in our opinion.

Will I be covered if the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono electric Flow breaks down?

On the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Mono, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.
