Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Alpha E-TEC 25R boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC 25R is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Is a Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only 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 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 Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only's output at 26 kW, which types of property would this Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Where will the Alpha E-TEC 25R fit in my house?

The Alpha E-TEC 25R is TBC mm in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 25R non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Alpha E-TEC 25R - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only an energy-efficient 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.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing a Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Alpha E-TEC 25R has been given a rating of 92% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Alpha E-TEC 25R is rated "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Alpha E-TEC 25R boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC 25R boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Alpha E-TEC 25R a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC 25R is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Should I install a Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only 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".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler is 26 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Alpha E-TEC 25R boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC 25R is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 25R non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Alpha E-TEC 25R are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

How energy efficient is the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only?

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.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would installing a Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes 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 Alpha E-TEC 25R scored an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Alpha E-TEC 25R, the ERP rating is "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC 25R boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
