Main Eco Compact 25kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Main Eco Compact 25kW - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Main Eco Compact 25kW.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is a Main Eco Compact 25kW combi boiler right 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 Main Eco Compact 25kW combi boiler is 25 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would suggest that the Main Eco Compact 25kW combi boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers like the Main Eco Compact 25kW, you need to take the flow rate into account as well as the output rate.

Combi boilers draw water from the mains and then instantly heat that water and send it to wherever in your home it's needed. Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, are subject to the mains water pressure in your area. So, for example, if the local mains water pressure is 11 litres per minute and the flow rate of your boiler is 14 litres per minute, the boiler will not be able to process more than 11 litres per minute. The flow rate of this Main Eco Compact 25kW Combi boiler is 10 L/m.

If you live in a home with lots of radiators or bathrooms where many people want to use hot water at the same time, a combi boiler may not be able to cope. For reference, a power shower uses about 10 litres of water per minute. If two people want showers at the same time or one person wants a shower and the other hot water from a tap in the kitchen, your boiler may not have a large enough flow rate even if the local mains water pressure is high.

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.


How big is the Main Eco Compact 25kW?

The Main Eco Compact 25kW is 700 mm [H] by 390 mm [W] by 285 mm [D] in size.

Is the Main Eco Compact 25kW condensing or non-condensing?

The Main Eco Compact 25kW boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Main Eco Compact 25kW combi a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Would installing the Main Eco Compact 25kW combi in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

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 Main Eco Compact 25kW has been given a rating of 93% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

The legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages from initial production to actual use by the customer, through to the point of disposal.

The Main Eco Compact 25kW has been given an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

If the Main Eco Compact 25kW breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

On the Main Eco Compact 25kW, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 5 years.

Main Eco Compact 25kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Main Eco Compact 25kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, then the Main Eco Compact 25kW is one you may wish to consider.

A combi boiler could be a better choice than a standard boiler if space is at a premium in your home. Combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank.

Water is heated on demand and then distributed directly to your taps and showers. This means that combi boilers use less fuel and so reduce your gas bills.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a limited volume of water at any given time. If more than one tap or shower is in use, the hot water supply to both could be restricted and both the water pressure and temperature will drop.

Should I install a Main Eco Compact 25kW combi boiler in 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.

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 Main Eco Compact 25kW combi boiler has an output rate of 25 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Main Eco Compact 25kW combi Eco Compact would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

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 Main Eco Compact 25kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 10 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.


Main Eco Compact 25kW size

The Main Eco Compact 25kW measures 700 mm tall, 390 mm wide, and 285 mm deep.

Is the Main Eco Compact 25kW condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

How energy efficient is the Main Eco Compact 25kW combi boiler?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Main Eco Compact 25kW combi be a suitable choice?

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Main Eco Compact 25kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "93%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.
