Alpha ProTec Plus 50 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Alpha ProTec Plus 50 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you want a system boiler for your flat or house, the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 might be an option for you to consider.

For homes that have a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating and for larger properties, system boilers are a more suitable option than the more popular combi boilers.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

And, unlike heat only boilers that also require a cold water storage tank to work (normally fitted in the loft), system boilers don't, meaning they're quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Would the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

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 ProTec Plus 50 system is 54 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Alpha ProTec Plus 50 System boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Alpha ProTec Plus 50 boiler?

Alpha’s ProTec Plus 50 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Alpha boiler non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 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.

How does the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system rate environmentally?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Will choosing a Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 ProTec Plus 50 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

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 ProTec Plus 50 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Alpha ProTec Plus 50 boiler?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 5 years with the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 boiler.

Alpha ProTec Plus 50 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Alpha ProTec Plus 50 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

The Alpha ProTec Plus 50 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

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 the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing 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".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system has an output of 54 kW, so which types of property would this Alpha ProTec Plus 50 System boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Alpha ProTec Plus 50 System boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Dimensions of the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 boiler

The size of the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Alpha ProTec Plus 50 – condensing or non-condensing?

This Alpha ProTec Plus 50 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the system Alpha ProTec Plus 50 boiler energy efficient?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Will installing a Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Alpha ProTec Plus 50 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 is "A".

Am I covered if my Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system boiler breaks down?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Alpha ProTec Plus 50 are covered by a 5 year warranty.
