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

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

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Alpha E-TEC 25R.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Is a Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler suitable 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?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only E-TEC would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Dimensions of the Alpha E-TEC 25R boiler

The Alpha E-TEC 25R's dimensions are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

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

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Alpha E-TEC 25R - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler good for the environment?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would choosing the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Alpha E-TEC 25R was awarded an efficiency rating of "92%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Alpha E-TEC 25R has been given an ERP rating of "A".

Is this Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only covered by a warranty?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Alpha E-TEC 25R boiler to new customers.

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 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You can program a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) to provide hot water and heating at particular times of the day. Heat only boilers consist of a cold water tank (often housed out of sight in the loft), a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally situated in an airing or landing cupboard), and a control panel.

Regular boilers are best suited for large households with many members, at least two of whom often need hot water at the same time.

Is a Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 gas than you need to.

The Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler has an output of 26 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler would make it a suitable installation option 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 measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

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

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Alpha E-TEC 25R - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only a good choice for the environment?

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

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 choosing the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Alpha E-TEC 25R was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Alpha E-TEC 25R is "A".

If the Alpha E-TEC 25R heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

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