Alpha E-TEC 30S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Alpha E-TEC 30S - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, then the Alpha E-TEC 30S is one you may wish to consider.

This type of boiler is better for larger homes and larger families where the demand for water is likely to be higher.

System boilers use a cylinder that draws water from the mains, heats it and then keeps it warm. The cylinder stores a large amount of water, meaning that you should have hot water all day. To be certain of this, make sure that you program your boiler to draw and heat water to meet times when demand is greater, like first thing in the morning before you and your family members go to work or school, and for the evening when everyone gets home.

Unlike heat only boilers, you won't need to find room in your attic for a cold water storage tank - suitable if you don't have an attic, your attic space is very limited, or you are planning an attic conversion in the near future.

Is a Alpha E-TEC 30S system boiler right for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Alpha E-TEC 30S system is 29 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Alpha E-TEC 30S system boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Alpha E-TEC 30S

The size of the Alpha E-TEC 30S boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 30S condensing or non-condensing?

The Alpha E-TEC 30S is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 30S system environmentally friendly?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 30S system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Alpha E-TEC 30S is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Alpha E-TEC 30S has an ERP rating of "A".

What length of warranty does the Alpha E-TEC 30S come with?

The parts and labour warranty on the Alpha E-TEC 30S lasts for 10 years.

Alpha E-TEC 30S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Alpha E-TEC 30S boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC 30S boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Tell the boiler when you want hot water using the control panel - it draws water from the mains, heats it and keeps it warm throughout the day in the hot water cylinder. As long as you remember to tell the boiler when you want hot water, you have a big enough cylinder, and there's not an unusually high demand for water on a particular day, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

Is a Alpha E-TEC 30S system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 gas 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 Alpha E-TEC 30S system is 29 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Alpha E-TEC 30S System boiler would make it a suitable installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Alpha E-TEC 30S

The Alpha E-TEC 30S boiler measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

E-TEC 30S – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Alpha E-TEC 30S improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 30S system good for the environment?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

Would choosing the Alpha E-TEC 30S system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Alpha E-TEC 30S was rated at 93% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Alpha E-TEC 30S has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

Am I covered if the Alpha E-TEC 30S system boiler breaks down?

The Alpha E-TEC 30S is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years following installation.
