Keston Heat 45 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Keston Heat 45 - standard, combi or system?

The Keston Heat 45 boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Would the Keston Heat 45 heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that 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’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

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

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler in would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Keston Heat 45

The Keston Heat 45 is TBC mm in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

Heat 45 – condensing or non-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 choosing the Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would installing a Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

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 Keston Heat 45 was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.2% and a band rating of "B".

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

Is there a warranty on the Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler if it breaks down?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 7 years with the Keston Heat 45 boiler.

Keston Heat 45 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Keston Heat 45 boiler may be worth considering.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Is a Keston Heat 45 heat only a suitable choice 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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

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

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Keston Heat 45 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Keston Heat 45 size

The dimensions of the Keston Heat 45 are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Keston Heat 45 – condensing or non-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 an energy-efficient boiler?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Keston Heat 45 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Keston Heat 45 has an efficiency rating of 89.2% with a SEDBUK grade of "B".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Keston Heat 45 boiler?

The Keston Heat 45 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 7 years after installation.
