Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Like heat only boilers, system boilers require a hot water cylinder to work - the cylinder stores and keeps water warm for use throughout the day. Hot water can be distributed to multiple showers and taps simultaneously, making system boilers suitable for larger families and properties with more than one bathroom.

System boilers differ from standard boilers in that they do not require a cold water tank, making them suitable for properties with no loft space or if you are planning a loft conversion. As the boiler's major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and no water tank is required, system boilers are easier to install than regular boilers.

This type of boiler does not heat water instantly like a combi boiler - instead, you need to use the control panel to set the times when you want heating and hot water to be available for your home.

Is a Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 ProTec Plus 70 system's output at 74 kW, which types of property would this Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Alpha ProTec Plus 70

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 boiler measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 condensing or non-condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 - 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 70 system boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would installing the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

The energy efficiency rating of the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 is 92% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

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 ProTec Plus 70, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Will I be covered if the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system breaks down?

Alpha’s ProTec Plus 70 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.

Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a gas system boiler for your flat or house? Then the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 may be an option you should consider.

As with a heat only boiler, a system boiler requires the installation of a hot water cylinder but they do not need a cold water tank to work. This makes them suitable choices for homeowners planning a loft conversion or for properties without a loft or very limited attic space.

The primary heating and hot water system components are built in to system boilers and you can use the control panel to set the times that you wish your heating and hot water to be available. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day, but if you don't set your timer, heat and hot water will not be available instantly.

A system boiler can supply multiple taps and showers simultaneously and is suitable for both large families and properties with more than one bathroom - combi boilers struggle to do this.

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 74 kW?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would likely recommend that this Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What dimensions does a Alpha ProTec Plus 70 have?

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 - 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 ProTec Plus 70 system good for the environment?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

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

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

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 ProTec Plus 70 is rated as 92% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 has a rating of "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 breaks down?

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 5 years.
