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

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

If you are searching for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri is certainly one to consider.

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 a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow the right boiler 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".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow boiler is 15 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri Electric Flow boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


The size of the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

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

Condensing oil and gas boilers use the exhaust gases created in the production of heat to reheat water, for example, coming back from your radiators. As electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri don't create exhaust gases during their operation, there is no need to include a secondary heat exchanger to perform these tasks as they are naturally more efficient.

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

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

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 you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

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 W 15kW Tri 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%.

What is the warranty period for the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri?

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

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

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

The Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri is a electric Flow boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

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 Tri electric Flow boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

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

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


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

The measurements of the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri are TBC mm by TBC mm by TBC mm.

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

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 electric Flow Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri boiler energy efficient?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

Gas and oil boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK rating system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

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

Why is it so low? Because electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels - considered to be a carbon-intensive activity - and this is factored into the scores of some electric boilers - unfairly. Operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is generally around the 98-99% level.

Am I covered if the Acv E-Tech W 15kW Tri electric Flow boiler breaks down?

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