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

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

Looking for a gas system boiler for your flat or house? Then the Alpha E-TEC 30S may be an option you should 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 the Alpha E-TEC 30S system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Alpha E-TEC 30S system's output level is 29 kW, so which types of property would this Alpha E-TEC 30S System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would likely recommend that this Alpha E-TEC 30S System boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How big is 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 non-condensing or 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 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.

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.

Would installing a Alpha E-TEC 30S system boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Alpha E-TEC 30S was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

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

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

The Alpha E-TEC 30S boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

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

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

The Alpha E-TEC 30S boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

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

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 30S system boiler is 29 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level 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 30S boiler

The Alpha E-TEC 30S is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

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

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

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

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

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing the Alpha E-TEC 30S system help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Alpha E-TEC 30S was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Alpha E-TEC 30S is "A".

Is there a warranty on the Alpha E-TEC 30S system boiler if it breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Alpha E-TEC 30S System boiler covers you for 10 years.
