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

What type of boiler is Acv’s E-Tech W 22kW Tri - system, regular or combi?

When looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri might be a suitable option for you.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

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

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

Most experienced heating engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow boiler in would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What is the size of the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri?

The Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri is TBC mm in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

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

Since 2005, all oil or gas boilers manufactured or installed in the UK must be more efficient condensing boilers. What this means is that the warmth present in exhaust gases created by the burning of oil or gas must be recycled via a secondary heat exchanger to, for example, heat water coming back from the radiators. As electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri do not burn fuel, they are exempt from this law as they are more efficient and economical by design.

Is the electric Flow Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri boiler energy efficient?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

The energy efficiency rating for gas and oil boilers describes the amount of energy they use and waste during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri scored an efficiency rating of 37% and a SEDBUK band rating of D.

This Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri Electric Flow boiler’s rating is particularly low because it is an electric boiler. That's despite the fact that the operating energy efficiency of electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler. The reason it's marked down is that the electricity needed to power the boiler is generated by burning fossil fuels and this is considered carbon-intensive - we're not sure that's a fair comparison at PlumbProud.

How long is the warranty period on a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow 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

What type of boiler is the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri?

The Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new electric Flow boiler.

The UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world, which is partly why combi boilers were introduced in the 1970s. Traditional boilers require one or more large storage tanks which they use to either heat water and keep it warm or store water intended for heating later. These tanks took up a lot of space in people's homes.

Combi boilers save space because they don't require these tanks to operate. Instead, combis draw water direct from your mains supply then instantly heat and distribute it on demand.

The biggest disadvantage in using combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity volume for heating water. While this may not be an issue in a small household, it could be for a larger household where there is higher demand for hot water. When more than one person is using the water, it is distributed between the two points, reducing the pressure and temperature at each point.

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

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow's output level is 22 kW, so which types of property would this Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri Electric Flow boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri Electric Flow boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


The size of the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri in millimetres

The Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri occupies a space of TBC mm high by TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

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

Since 2005, all oil or gas boilers manufactured or installed in the UK must be more efficient condensing boilers. What this means is that the warmth present in exhaust gases created by the burning of oil or gas must be recycled via a secondary heat exchanger to, for example, heat water coming back from the radiators. As electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri do not burn fuel, they are exempt from this law as they are more efficient and economical by design.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow a good choice 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.

Would choosing a Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 22kW 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.

Will I be covered if the Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri electric Flow breaks down?

The Acv E-Tech W 22kW Tri boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.
