Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW 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 (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Should I install a Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler in 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 Classic CBH1 20kW heat only outputs at a maximum of 20 kW, so which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What size is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW is TBC mm high by TBC mm wide by TBC mm deep.

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 Classic CBH1 20kW. 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 Classic CBH1 20kW non-condensing or condensing?

This Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW 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.

How environmentally friendly is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

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.

Will installing a Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

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.

Should I install a Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only's output is 20 kW, so which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How large is a Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW is TBC mm high by TBC mm wide by TBC mm deep.

Many homeowners still have floor-standing boilers like the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW even though wall-mounted boilers have been the preferred choice because of their compact size. If you want to replace your existing boiler with a compact wall-hung one to free up extra living space for you and your family, we can do this for you but please be aware that we may need to replace much of your existing pipework, which will incur an additional charge.

However, given the efficiency of modern wall-mounted oil boilers, the savings you make on your energy bills over the coming years should more than repay the cost of your investment.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW boiler is a condensing oil boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' oil bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn oil to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler good for the environment?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British 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.

Will installing a Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your oil bills.

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "92%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.
