Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 - standard, combi or system?

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Alpha ProTec Plus 70.

System boilers are very popular for properties with limited or no loft space or when homeowners want to keep the space for a loft conversion. This is because, unlike heat only boilers, they don’t require a cold-water tank - however, system boilers do need a hot water cylinder (often installed in an airing or landing cupboard).

Instead of the traditional cold-water tanks, system boilers use their built-in circulating pumps to heat the water needed for your taps and radiators. This also makes them an easier choice for engineers to install as there is one less large component to find space for and fit.

Like a regular boiler, you need to use a control panel to control a system boiler. Set the times when you want central heating and hot water to be available, such as in the morning when there might be greater demand for showers, and it will be there. Although hot water is not available on-demand like with a combi boiler, once the water has been heated it will stay in the hot water cylinder until it’s used up.

Should I install a Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system boiler in my home?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

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

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 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

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

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is choosing the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system boiler environmentally friendly?

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.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing a Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 has an ERP rating of "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system boiler?

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.

Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work, with the most popular installation location for cylinders being in an airing or landing cupboard. Unlike heat only boilers though, they don't require a separate cold water tank to go in the attic, making them suitable if roof space is at a premium or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers use (often built-in) circulating pumps to distribute hot water to your taps and radiators. Fitting is cheaper and quicker too because you don't need to find room for a water tank. Unlike with a combi boiler, which heats water it draws from the mains instantly, you have to program a system boiler with the times you want hot water and heating.

Would the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system boiler has an output rate of 74 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Alpha ProTec Plus 70 System boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 in millimetres

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 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system an environmentally friendly boiler?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

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.

Will installing a Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK grading 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 ProTec Plus 70 has an ERP rating of "A".

Am I covered if the Alpha ProTec Plus 70 system boiler breaks down?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Alpha ProTec Plus 70 are covered by a 5 year warranty.
