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

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

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW may be an option you should consider.

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 the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

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 BH7 68kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 68 kW, so which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How big is the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW?

The measurements of the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW are TBC mm by TBC mm by TBC mm.

Hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW despite the fact that over the last 20 years more compact, wall-hung boilers have become the preference for most homeowners keen to free up space in their properties.

While it is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted boiler to free up space in your home, please bear in mind that much of the pipework might need replacing, which is over and above the cost of the boiler and its installation. This will be a significant one-off investment if you do decide to switch and while the savings on your oil bills will repay it eventually, this will take a few years.

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

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler - unfortunately, the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW is NOT a condensing model.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation then recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your oil bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler that is more than 15 years old.

Does the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only protect the environment?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

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 installing a Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW was given an efficiency rating of 86% and a SEDBUK grading of "B".

What warranty does the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler come with?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW boiler.

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

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

If you are searching for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW is certainly one 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 the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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 BH7 68kW heat only has an output of 68 kW, so which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW 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.


Where will the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW fit in my house?

The Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW's dimensions are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

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 this Mistral boiler condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers benefit from greater energy efficiency and they reduce your annual expenditure on oil. The Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW is NOT a condensing model and we would always recommend choosing a condensing model over a non-condensing model.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only 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.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will choosing a Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 86% with a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

How long is the warranty period on the Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW heat only boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House BH7 68kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
