Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri - combi, system or regular boiler?

If you want a electric Flow boiler for your flat or house, the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri might be an option for you to 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 the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property 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 has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your electric bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow's output at 36 kW, which types of property would this Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri Electric Flow boiler be most appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri - size in millimetres

The size of the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri – non-condensing or condensing?

Previously, gas and oil boilers were pretty inefficient and, in 2005, a law was passed requiring that all new gas and oil boilers must be "condensing". Condensing boilers contain a secondary heat exchanger that uses the exhaust gases created by burning gas and oil to, for example, reheat water coming back from the radiators. As electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri do not burn fuel in the home, they do not need this modification.

How energy efficient is the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

Would installing a Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

All gas and oil boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency rating of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri has an efficiency rating of 37% with a SEDBUK grade of "D".

Why so low? It's because the electricity generation process currently involves burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the scores of many electric boilers. In real life, virtually every electric boiler has an energy efficiency in operation of near 100%.

Will I be covered if the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow breaks down?

Acv’s E-Tech W 36kW Tri boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.

Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri - a regular, combi or system boiler?

You might want to consider the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri for your house or flat if you are looking for a electric Flow boiler.

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.

Should I install a Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler in 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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your electric bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow is 36 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri Electric Flow boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri dimensions

The Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 36kW 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 energy efficient is the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler?

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.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow be a suitable choice?

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 36kW 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.

Does the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler come with a warranty?

Acv’s E-Tech W 36kW Tri boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.
