Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

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 the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler from the Boiler House range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your oil bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only is 68 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW is TBC mm in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

Over the last 20 years, compact wall-hung boilers have been installed in far greater numbers in UK properties than floor-standing boilers like the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW. While hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers, many homeowners consider making the switch to wall-hung boilers to increase the amount of living space that they and their families can enjoy. We can swap your old floor-standing boiler for a wall-mounted boiler but please bear in mind that there may be an additional cost for your installation if we have to replace the pipework.

You should though be able to recoup this investment in full in just a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Is the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Condensing oil boilers are more environmentally friendly and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose one of the very latest models. Unfortunately, the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW is NOT a condensing boiler.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less oil to run.

How does the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only rate environmentally?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW a system, regular or combi boiler?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW boiler is certainly worth investigating.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Is a Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher oil bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper oil bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only is 68 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW boiler?

The dimensions of the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW are TBC mm tall, 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 BH7 68kW. 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 BH7 68kW condensing or non-condensing?

The Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW is NOT a condensing oil 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 oil bills.

Is the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact 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.

Would installing a Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW 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 Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 86% 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.

Does a Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

On the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
