Alpha E-TEC 35S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Alpha E-TEC 35S - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC 35S is a gas system boiler.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

Is a Alpha E-TEC 35S system a suitable choice for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Alpha E-TEC 35S system is 35 kW, so which types of property would this Alpha E-TEC 35S System boiler 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.


What size is a Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC 35S is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

Is the Alpha E-TEC 35S non-condensing or condensing?

The Alpha E-TEC 35S is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

How environmentally friendly is the Alpha E-TEC 35S system?

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

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.

Would installing a Alpha E-TEC 35S system boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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 35S was awarded an efficiency rating of "93%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Alpha E-TEC 35S has an ERP rating of "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years on the Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler to new customers.

Alpha E-TEC 35S System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are considering installing a system boiler in your house or flat, then the Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler is certainly worth investigating.

System boilers work similarly to heat only boilers in that they need a hot water cylinder (usually installed in the home’s airing or landing cupboard) to operate. Unlike heat only boilers though, system boilers don’t require a separate cold-water tank, making them a more suitable choice in homes with little or no attic space or where homeowners are planning a loft conversion in the future.

Instead of large cold-water tanks, system boilers use built-in circulating pumps to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. This makes them easier to install from scratch as they have one less component to find room for and fit.

System boilers need to be programmed with the time you want heat and hot water - they don't offer hot water on demand like combi boilers.

Should I choose a Alpha E-TEC 35S system boiler 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 35S system's output at 35 kW, which types of property would this Alpha E-TEC 35S System boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Alpha E-TEC 35S System boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


What are the proportions of a Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC 35S measures TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Alpha E-TEC 35S – condensing or non-condensing?

The Alpha E-TEC 35S 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 35S system 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 power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

If you decide to install a Alpha E-TEC 35S system in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

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 35S was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Alpha E-TEC 35S, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

What is the warranty period on a Alpha E-TEC 35S system boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 10 years is included with the Alpha Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler.
