Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a electric electric Flow boiler for your flat or house? Then the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri may be an option you should consider.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

Is a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow boiler suitable 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 22kW Tri electric Flow boiler has an output of 22 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments containing 10-15 radiators and providing hot water for two bathrooms.


What size is a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri boiler?

The measurements of the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri are TBC mm by TBC mm by TBC mm.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri non-condensing or condensing?

Gas and oil boilers burn fuel to heat the water you need for your home - electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri do not. Condensing non-electric boilers create exhaust gases which they then recycle to heat the water coming back through your pipes to your radiator, among other tasks, for greater efficiency. Because electric boilers do not create these gases when operating, they do not need the secondary heat exchanger found in condensing boilers.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow an environmentally friendly boiler?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other 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.

Will choosing to install a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

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 W 22kW Tri 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.

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri boiler?

The Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 1 years following installation.

Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri a standard, 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 22kW Tri.

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 a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that 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’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your electric than you need to.

The Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow has an output of 22 kW, so which types of property would this Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri Electric Flow boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with up to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How big is the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri?

The Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri measures TBC mm in height and has a width of TBC mm and a depth of TBC mm.

Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri – 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.

How environmentally friendly is the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

If you decide to install a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All gas and oil boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - scores of 88% and 89% for energy efficiency were given a “B” rating and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri was rated at 37% with a SEDBUK grading of "D".

This is slightly misleading though. Operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99% - however, because they use electricity, which is considered carbon-intensive, some are (in our opinion) unfairly scored down for this.

Is this Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow covered by a warranty?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 1 years on the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri boiler to new customers.
