Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a combi boiler for your flat or house.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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 Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler has an output level of 28 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most experienced heating engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler in would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

When choosing a combi boiler like the Heatline Capriz2 28kW, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate. Flow rates (measured in litres per minute) indicate the volume of hot water that the boiler can heat up and then distribute to your taps and radiators.

However, combi boilers draw water from the mains and this means they can only heat the amount of water that actually enters your property.

What this means is that, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, that is your boiler's effective flow rate even if it has the capacity to process 18 litres per minute. This Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

To give you an idea of the flow rate you might need, a power shower typically requires around 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap requires 4-8 litres per minute.

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.


The size of the Heatline Capriz2 28kW in millimetres

The dimensions of the Heatline Capriz2 28kW are 740 mm tall, 418 mm wide, and 300 mm deep.

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

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Heatline Capriz2 28kW - 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.

How energy efficient is the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi?

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.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would choosing the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

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 Heatline Capriz2 28kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.3%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

ERP ratings of "A" for heat and "A" for water were assigned when testing the Heatline Capriz2 28kW.

How many years' warranty does the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi come with?

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.

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 a combi boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers have one or more large tanks in which they store either heated water or water to be heated later. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to the market in the 1970s to enable homeowners to save space - UK residential properties are among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers don't need these tanks because they draw water directly from the mains and instantly heat it on demand thanks to the technology inside the boiler. Combi boilers then distribute this hot water to your home’s taps and radiators when needed.

The most significant disadvantage of combi boilers is that they are not ideal in larger homes where multiple people might want hot water at the same time – for example, if someone is having a shower while another wants to wash dishes in the kitchen. This is because combi boilers have a maximum volume of water that they can heat. When two people want hot water at the same time, the water temperature, pressure and volume delivered to both points drop.

Is the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler is 28 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler would be an ideal installation option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

If you are considering installing a combi boiler in your home, you need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate.

The flow rate is the volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can instantly heat up and send around the home. The more demand in your home for water at the same time (for example, two people taking showers in different bathrooms), the higher the flow rate you'll need.

However, the actual flow rate your boiler can deliver is also determined by your mains water pressure. If you choose a boiler with a flow rate of 16l/m but the mains water pressure is 12l/m, your boiler will only perform to 12l/m. This Heatline Capriz2 28kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

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.


The size of the Heatline Capriz2 28kW

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

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

The Heatline Capriz2 28kW is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

How does the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi rate environmentally?

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.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Will choosing a Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

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

The aim of the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

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

How many years' warranty does the Heatline Capriz2 28kW combi come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Heatline Capriz2 28kW are covered by a 2 year warranty.
