Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Should I install a Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher oil bills.

Which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 68 kW?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW dimensions

The Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW stands at TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Many properties in the UK still feature a floor-standing boiler like the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW. This is despite the fact that more compact wall-mounted types have been the first choice of homeowners over the last 20 years seeking more space to live for their families. If you want, you can choose to replace your floor-standing model with a wall-mounted, more compact boiler. However, this could involve having to change the pipework, adding to overall installation costs.

You would benefit from savings on your oil each year that would eventually pay off your investment in a wall-mounted boiler.

Is the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW condensing or non-condensing?

This Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW is a condensing oil boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your oil bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

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.

Following testing, the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW was given an efficiency rating of 90% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW is "A".

Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW 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 the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only boiler a suitable option 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 CBH7 68kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 68 kW, so which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your oil bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

Boiler House CBH7 68kW – non-condensing or condensing?

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 CBH7 68kW 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.

Is choosing the Mistral Boiler House CBH7 68kW heat only boiler environmentally friendly?
