Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

A combi boiler could be a better choice than a standard boiler if space is at a premium in your home. Combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank.

Water is heated on demand and then distributed directly to your taps and showers. This means that combi boilers use less fuel and so reduce your gas bills.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a limited volume of water at any given time. If more than one tap or shower is in use, the hot water supply to both could be restricted and both the water pressure and temperature will drop.

Is the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

Whether this Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi is 26 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi E-TEC PLUS would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With all combi boilers, the "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) is as important a consideration as output rate when choosing which model to go for. This Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

Like all combi boilers, the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, the water in the mains pipe that feeds your boilers has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m. So if you choose a combi with a flow rate of 14l/m but local water pressure is equivalent to 11l/m, your boiler will actually operate at 11l/m - below its capacity.

In addition, if different family members want hot water at the same time (like for regular morning and evening showers) and your boiler has to provide hot water to your radiators at the same time, a combi boiler may not be suitable.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


How large is a Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 boiler?

The size of the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Alpha E-TEC PLUS gas Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

Is the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi boiler environmentally friendly?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Is the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 PLUS 28 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 boiler?

Alpha offers a parts and labour warranty of 13 years on the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28.

Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 a standard, combi or system boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi boiler is worth considering if you want a combi boiler.

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Is a Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi the right boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi outputs at a maximum of 26 kW, so which types of property would this Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi E-TEC PLUS would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


Making space for the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28

The Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Is the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

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.

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 choosing the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The aim of the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Does the Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 combi boiler come with a warranty?

The Alpha E-TEC PLUS 28 boiler comes with a 13 year warranty for parts and labour.
