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

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

When looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri might be a suitable option for you.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow boiler suitable for 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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your electric bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow is 28 kW, so which types of property would this Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow boiler would be a suitable choice 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 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?

Electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri are more economical in their fuel use than non-electric boilers. This is because electric boilers do not need to recycle the warmth contained in exhaust gases created from the burning of gas and oil, therefore they do not need to be modified to be condensing.

How does the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow boiler rate environmentally?

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

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

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 28kW 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.

Am I covered if the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow boiler breaks down?

The Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 1 years after installation.

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

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

Looking for a electric electric Flow boiler for your flat or house? Then the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri may be an option you should consider.

Combination or combi boilers are highly efficient and save a lot of space in your home. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap and, as a result, you don’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water tank in the roof space.

These boilers are, therefore, suitable for smaller homes and especially those without a loft. They are also cost-effective as the water is heated instantly and distributed on demand rather than being stored. Combi boilers are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and replacing an older boiler with a new combi boiler will reduce your electric bills significantly.

However, there are downsides to this type of boiler. If you take a shower while someone else is using a tap, less water will reach each point of usage at lower rates of pressure and temperatures as combi boilers can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time.

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

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow's output at 28 kW, which types of property would this Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri Electric Flow boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri boiler?

The size of the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri – non-condensing or condensing?

Electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri do not produce exhaust gases, unlike gas and oil boilers, meaning they do not need to be adapted to be "condensing". For a gas or oil boiler to be condensing, it must have a secondary heat exchanger that recycles the warmth present in exhaust gases to reheat water coming back from the radiators.

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

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would installing a Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri electric Flow boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

By law, gas and oil boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

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

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

Given that, operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99%, why the low score? It's because the electricity used to power the boiler is generated through the burning of fossil fuels and this is considered carbon-intensive. As a result, some boilers are (in our opinion) unfairly scored down.

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

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Acv E-Tech W 28kW Tri are covered by a 1 year warranty.
