Elnur Mattira 8 System Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Elnur Mattira 8 System a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, then the Elnur Mattira 8 System is one you may wish to consider.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is the Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Elnur Mattira 8 System Electric Flow 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 electric bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Elnur Mattira 8 System Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for given its output of 8 kW?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Elnur Mattira 8 System Electric Flow boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Elnur Mattira 8 System dimensions

The Elnur Mattira 8 System is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Mattira 8 System – non-condensing or condensing?

The law passed in 2005 requiring all boilers installed in the UK to be "condensing" boilers does not apply to electric boilers. This is because, unlike non-electric boilers, electric boilers do not burn either gas or oil to operate and create no hot exhaust gases that can be recycled. Electric boilers like the Elnur Mattira 8 System are more efficient and economical by design.

How does the Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow rate environmentally?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Is the Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 Elnur Mattira 8 System was awarded an efficiency rating of 100% equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "D".

ERP assessors are however not keen that the boiler is powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation intended to reduce energy consumption related to products, from the initial manufacturing process right through to their 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 ERP rating for the Elnur Mattira 8 System is "TBC".

Why is it so low? It's because it uses electricity - this is considered carbon-intensive since fossil fuels are burned in its generation. Operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99% so we feel this is a misleading comparison that unfairly reflects the actual performance of electric boilers.

Is there a warranty on the Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow boiler if it breaks down?

The Elnur Mattira 8 System boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

Elnur Mattira 8 System Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Elnur Mattira 8 System boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Elnur Mattira 8 System boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers have much to recommend them - not least the fact that they save a lot of space. Combination (or combi) boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to provide practical central heating and hot water distribution to smaller properties - remember that UK houses and flats tend to be among the smallest in the developed world.

Traditional boilers require one or more storage tanks to keep hot water warm and to store water for heating later. In contrast, combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a storage tank. The heated water is then distributed to your taps and radiators on demand.

While combi boilers are suitable choices for many properties, especially those without a loft, there is also a disadvantage in using them. Water is heated instantly and the volume of water that can be heated at any one time is limited. This can result in less water being sent to taps and showers if more than one is being used simultaneously. In these instances, the water pressure to both points will drop.

Should I install a Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow boiler in my house or flat?

Whether this Elnur Mattira 8 System Electric Flow 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 electric bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper electric bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow is 8 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Elnur Mattira 8 System have?

The Elnur Mattira 8 System is TBC mm high by TBC mm wide by TBC mm deep.

Is the Elnur Mattira 8 System non-condensing or condensing?

Gas and electric boilers create exhaust gases - condensing boilers capture and recycle these gases to, for example, reheat water coming back from your radiators. As electric boilers like the Elnur Mattira 8 System do not create exhaust gases during their operation, they do not need a secondary heat exchanger which all condensing boilers must contain - they are more efficient by design.

Is the Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow a good choice for the environment?

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.

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.

Would choosing the Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (SEDBUK score of "A"). This is higher than the 88% that was the 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 normally - its standard functioning and operation.

The Elnur Mattira 8 System is rated as 100% energy efficient, equivalent to a "D" SEDBUK rating.

The boiler is however penalised in its ERP rating for being powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Elnur Mattira 8 System is "TBC".

How can it be so low? The use of fossil fuels in generating the electricity that powers the boiler is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the ERP scores of electric boilers. This is, in our opinion, unfair because the actual operating energy efficiency of electric boilers is 98% or 99% - better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler.

How long is the warranty period on the Elnur Mattira 8 System electric Flow boiler?

The Elnur Mattira 8 System boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
