Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Is a Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only the right boiler 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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only's output level is 50 kW, so which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

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 CBH5 50kW. 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 CBH5 50kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly oil bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Is a Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

Whether this Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher oil bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only is 50 kW, so which types of property is this Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only boiler appropriate for?

If this is you and you want to replace what you have now with a compact, wall-mounted boiler, we can do this for you, although please note that you may need to pay for new piping.

The oil bill savings offered by modern boilers are significant, however, and you should be able to recoup your investment in a few years.

Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW is a condensing oil boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when oil is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less oil to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

How does the Mistral Boiler House CBH5 50kW heat only boiler rate environmentally?

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