Alpha ProTec Plus 50 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Alpha ProTec Plus 50.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - normally fitted inside an airing or landing cupboard or similar spot. Unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a separate cold water tank, making them a more suitable choice if you have no loft, lack space in the attic, or are planning to do a loft conversion.

These boilers distribute hot water around your home to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulating pumps and they're easier to install as there is one less component (the water tank) to find room for. A system boiler needs to be programmed to tell it what times you want heat and hot water - unlike combi boilers, they don't provide hot water on demand.

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system boiler a suitable option 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 - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

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

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Alpha ProTec Plus 50 System boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Alpha ProTec Plus 50 boiler?

The Alpha ProTec Plus 50 has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 non-condensing or condensing?

The Alpha ProTec Plus 50 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system considered 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.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would installing the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Alpha ProTec Plus 50 scores "A".

If the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 covers all repair-related costs for 5 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Alpha ProTec Plus 50 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 a system, regular or combi 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 boiler 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 ProTec Plus 50 system is 54 kW, so which types of property would this Alpha ProTec Plus 50 System boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Alpha ProTec Plus 50 dimensions

The Alpha ProTec Plus 50 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 - 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.

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system rated as environmentally friendly?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

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.

Would choosing the Alpha ProTec Plus 50 system be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

The Alpha ProTec Plus 50 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

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".

What is the warranty period for the Alpha ProTec Plus 50?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Alpha Alpha ProTec Plus 50 boiler are covered by a 5 year warranty.
