Keston Heat 45 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Keston Heat 45 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

The Keston Heat 45 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Should I install a Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler in my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Keston Heat 45 heat only's output at 45 kW, which types of property would this Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Keston Heat 45 boiler?

The Keston Heat 45 stands at TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Is the Keston Heat 45 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Keston Heat 45.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Keston Heat 45 heat only environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Will installing a Keston Heat 45 heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Keston Heat 45 has been given a rating of 89.2% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating.

How long is the warranty period on the Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 7 years is included with the Keston Keston Heat 45 boiler.

Keston Heat 45 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Keston Heat 45 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Keston Heat 45 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like instead of replacing it with a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is a Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Keston Heat 45 heat only's output is 45 kW, so which types of property would this Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Keston Heat 45 are

The Keston Heat 45 is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

Is the Keston Heat 45 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Keston Heat 45 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Keston Heat 45 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing the Keston Heat 45 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Keston Heat 45 are 89.2% with a SEDBUK rating of "B".

How many years' warranty does the Keston Heat 45 heat only come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Keston Heat 45 are covered by a 7 year warranty.
