Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a electric Flow boiler for your flat or house.

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 the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

Whether this Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your electric bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for given its output of 28 kW?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What dimensions does a Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri have?

The Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The reason why the Government required all non-electric boilers to be "condensing" in 2005 was that they were much more energy-efficient. Rather than letting all exhaust gases escape into the atmosphere through the flue as older boilers did, condensing boilers use the warmth present in these gases to, for example, reheat water coming back from your radiators via a secondary heat exchanger. As electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri do not burn any fuel, they are more efficient by design, there are no gases to recycle, and so they are not covered by the 2005 law.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow an environmentally friendly boiler?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many 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.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for gas and oil boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri was given an energy efficiency rating of 37% and a SEDBUK grading of "D".

Why so low? Since fossil fuels are burned to generate the power used by electric boilers, some receive low efficiency scores because the electricity generation is carbon-intensive. This is unfair because the operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is 98% or 99% - a level no oil or gas boiler has yet reached.

How long is the warranty period on a Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow boiler?

The Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.

Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri - regular, system or combi?

Acv’s E-Tech W 28kW Tri is one you might consider if you’re looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers consist of one or more large tanks that take up a lot of space in people's homes. One tank heats water and keeps it warm and the other stores water for heating later.

In contrast, a combi boiler is a much smaller stand-alone unit. Instead of requiring water tanks, it draws cold water from the mains. When hot water is needed for a shower, for the washing up, or the dishwasher, the cold water is heated instantly by the boiler and distributed to where it is needed.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that there is a limit to how much water they are capable of heating at the same time. For instance, water pressure, volume and temperature will be adversely affected if more than one individual in the home needs hot water at the same time.

Should I install a Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow boiler in my house or apartment?

Whether this Acv E-Tech W 28kW 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 28kW Tri electric Flow outputs at a maximum of 28 kW, so which types of property would this Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow boiler would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri boiler?

The dimensions of the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri are TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

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 28kW Tri are more efficient and economical by design.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow an energy-efficient boiler?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Will installing a Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All gas and oil boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (an "A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri was given an efficiency rating of 37% and a SEDBUK grading of "D".

How can it be so low? The electricity is generated using fossil fuels - considered carbon-intensive - and this is factored into the energy efficiency score of electric boilers. This is, in our opinion, unfair because the operating energy efficiency of electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler.

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri breaks down?

Acv’s E-Tech W 28kW Tri boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.
