Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of 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 regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard 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 temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish 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 and not choose 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 Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 oil than you need to.

The Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only has an output of 50 kW, so which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW

The Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW measures TBC mm in height and has a width of TBC mm and a depth of TBC mm.

Wall-hung boilers have become the preferred choice for homeowners in the UK over the last 20 years, but hundreds of thousands of homes still use bulkier floor-standing models for their central heating. It is possible to replace your floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted one if you wish so that you and your family have more living space. But we must advise you that you may also have to pay to replace some or all of your existing pipework.

You should however be able to recoup this cost in full after a few years because of the savings you make each quarter on your oil bills.

Is this Mistral boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW is NOT a condensing oil boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose a recently released condensing model if possible instead.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of oil to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower oil bills) and they are better for the environment.

Is the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW has been given a rating of 86% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW boiler is certainly worth investigating.

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.

Would the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

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

This Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler gets its power from oil and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher oil bills.

The Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler has an output level of 50 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler in would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW boiler?

The dimensions of the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Because of their convenient and compact size, wall-hung boilers have become the popular choice for homeowners over the last 20 years. Yet while hundreds of thousands of UK properties still use floor-standing boilers like the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW, many consider switching to wall-mounted units to create extra living space.

We can replace your floor-standing boiler if you wish but there may be an additional cost if we have to replace much of your existing pipework. The savings you make on your oil bills every quarter should repay that investment within a few years.

Boiler House BH5 50kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW is NOT a condensing oil boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat that the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only considered environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

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.

Would choosing the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures 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 Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW has an efficiency rating of 86% with a SEDBUK grade of "B".

If the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW boiler through PlumbProud.
