Keston Heat 55 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Keston Heat 55 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Keston Heat 55 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

Heat only boilers, sometimes known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, are better for homes with multiple bathrooms or larger families where members of your household may need to use hot water at the same time as each other, such as a shower in the bathroom and a hot water tap in the kitchen. This is because, unlike combi boilers, they can handle demand from more than one point at a time with no drop in water pressure, temperature and volume.

Heat only boilers use a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally installed in an airing or landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (normally stored in the loft).

You program a heat only boiler to provide you with the central heating and hot water you need at specific times of the day, such as first thing in the morning. However, if you forget to set timings and there is no water left in the hot water tank, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again.

Is a Keston Heat 55 heat only boiler right 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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Keston Heat 55 heat only boiler has an output rate of 55 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Keston Heat 55 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Keston Heat 55 boiler?

The Keston Heat 55 is TBC mm in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

Is this Keston boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Keston Heat 55 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

How does the Keston Heat 55 heat only rate environmentally?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Would installing a Keston Heat 55 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

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 Keston Heat 55 was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.6% with a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

Is this Keston Heat 55 heat only covered by a warranty?

The Keston Heat 55 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.

Keston Heat 55 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Keston Heat 55 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Keston Heat 55 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Is a Keston Heat 55 heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Keston Heat 55 heat only is 55 kW, so which types of property would this Keston Heat 55 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Keston Heat 55 heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Keston Heat 55 boiler?

The Keston Heat 55 measures TBC mm in height and has a width of TBC mm and a depth of TBC mm.

Is the Keston Heat 55 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Keston Heat 55 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the Keston Heat 55 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

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.

Is the Keston Heat 55 heat only an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Keston Heat 55 was given an efficiency rating of 89.6% and a band rating of "B".

What is the warranty period for the Keston Heat 55?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 7 years with the Keston Heat 55 boiler.
