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

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

When looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri might be a suitable option for you.

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.

Should I install a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow boiler in my home?

Whether this Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri Electric Flow boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher electric bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow outputs at a maximum of 15 kW, so which types of property would this Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri Electric Flow boiler as suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Dimensions of the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri boiler

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri 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 Tri 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 Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri 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.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Will installing a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

All gas and oil boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The rating awarded to the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri is 37% with a SEDBUK rating of "D".

In truth, however, the operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is 98% or 99% - a level no oil or gas boiler has yet reached. So why does it receive such a low score? It's because fossil fuels generate the power used by electric boilers - factoring this in results in low efficiency scores because electricity generation is carbon-intensive. We're not sure that this is a fair way of comparing energy efficiency given the advances in electric boiler technology over the last 5 years.

How many years' warranty does the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow come with?

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.

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

Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri - combi, system or regular boiler?

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

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.

Should I install a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow boiler in my house or apartment?

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

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

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

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri

Acv’s E-Tech W 15kW Tri is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

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

Electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri don't need to be "condensing", unlike gas and oil boilers. That's because, unlike gas and oil boilers, electric boilers do not burn any fuel which creates still-warm exhaust gases that condensing boilers then use to, among other tasks, heat water coming back from your radiators. They are, by design, more efficient in operation than non-electric boilers and they're not covered by the 2005 law requiring all boilers to be "condensing".

Is the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow boiler good for the environment?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing to install a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Every gas and oil boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). This was made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri was awarded an efficiency rating of 37% and a band rating of "D".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

Electric boilers are usually rated fairly low in energy efficiency, and unfairly so. Operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is around the 98-99% level in most cases. The reason they're marked down so severely is that the electricity used to power these boilers is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the scores - not exactly a like-for-like comparison, in our opinion.

Is this Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow covered by a warranty?

Acv offers a parts and labour warranty of 1 years on the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri.
