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

Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW - combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW boiler may be worth considering.

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.

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

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the oil your boiler needs to work.

The Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 50 kW, so which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Is the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

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?

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW might be an option for you to consider.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Is a Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW 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 Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Compact wall-mounted boilers have been the models of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. But many thousands of properties in the UK still have a floor-standing boiler like the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW. If you're interested in switching to a wall-mounted unit to create extra space in your property, bear in mind that there might be a premium on the installation work because you may need to replace your current piping.

Newer compact boilers mean lower oil bills and you could recover the cost of your investment from those savings within a few years.

Is the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology. Unfortunately, the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW is NOT a condensing boiler.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust emissions created by burning oil to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will also save money on your oil bills, and condensing boilers are kinder to the environment.

Does the Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only protect the environment?

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

Will choosing a Mistral Boiler House BH5 50kW heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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.
