Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Heatline Capriz2 28kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

With combi boilers, there is no need to find space for large tanks around your home as the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand. Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

Would the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi outputs at a maximum of 28 kW, so which types of property would this Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi boiler be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend this Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi boiler as a suitable option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What dimensions does a Heatline Capriz2 28kW have?

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW's dimensions are 740 mm [H] x 418 mm [W] x 300 mm [D].

Capriz2 28kW – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Heatline Capriz2 gas Heatline Capriz2 28kW for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

How does the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi rate environmentally?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi would be a good choice for the environment.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.3% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Heatline Capriz2 28kW is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

What warranty does the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler come with?

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Heatline Capriz2 28kW - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW boiler is a combi boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

With combi boilers, there is no need to find space for large tanks around your home as the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand. Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

Is the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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 Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 28 kW?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


Heatline Capriz2 28kW size

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW stands at 740 mm tall, 418 mm wide and 300 mm deep.

Is the Heatline Capriz2 28kW non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Heatline Capriz2 28kW for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi good for the environment?

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

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 Heatline Capriz2 28kW is rated as 89.3% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Heatline Capriz2 28kW, the ERP rating is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

Will I be covered if the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi breaks down?

Heatline’s Capriz2 28kW boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
