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

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

When looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, the Alpha E-TEC 35S might be a suitable option for you.

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 35S system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Alpha E-TEC 35S System boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

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

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would say that this Alpha E-TEC 35S System boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Alpha E-TEC 35S

The Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

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

Is the Alpha E-TEC 35S system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

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 a Alpha E-TEC 35S system help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics 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 35S was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

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".

Will I be covered if the Alpha E-TEC 35S system breaks down?

The Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler comes with a 10 year warranty for parts and labour.

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

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

Looking for a gas system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler may be worth considering.

System boilers, like regular boilers, require a hot water cylinder (usually placed in a landing or airing cupboard) to work but they don’t require a separate cold water tank. This makes installation quicker and easier and, for homeowners with little loft space or who are considering a loft conversion, they're a more suitable choice.

System boilers don't need separate water tanks because they contain built-in circulating pumps that perform the same task. Just like heat only boilers, they require you to program in the times when you want heating and hot water to be available - they don't offer instant hot water like combi boilers. The cylinders keep whatever water they contain warm, although, if there is no hot water in the tank, you will have to wait up to an hour before hot water will come through your taps.

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 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 35S system's output level is 35 kW, so which types of property would this Alpha E-TEC 35S System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Alpha E-TEC 35S System boiler would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler?

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

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

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Alpha E-TEC 35S - 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to 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.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Would choosing the Alpha E-TEC 35S system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? 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 35S is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

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

What length of warranty does the Alpha E-TEC 35S come with?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 10 years with the Alpha E-TEC 35S boiler.
