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

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

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

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Should I install a Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler in 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 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler has an output of 36 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri Electric Flow boiler in would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri

The Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri boiler measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

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

As a large proportion of the greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere come from people's homes, the Government passed a law in 2005 requiring all manufacturers to make gas and oil boilers "condensing". What this means is that they must include a secondary heat exchanger, which recycles the warmth contained in exhaust gases normally expelled via the flue so that they're more efficient. Because electric boilers like the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri don't actually burn any fuel, there are no exhaust gases to recycle and they are exempt from the requirement to include a secondary heat exchange.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 36kW 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.

If the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 1 years after installation.

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

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

When looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, the Acv E-Tech W 36kW 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.

Should I install a Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler in my house or apartment?

Whether this Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri Electric Flow boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher electric bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow is 36 kW, so which types of property is this Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri Electric Flow boiler appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri Electric Flow boiler be installed 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 Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Is the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri non-condensing or 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 does the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow 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.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Will choosing a Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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%.

How many years' warranty does the Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri electric Flow come with?

The Acv E-Tech W 36kW Tri boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 1 years.
