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

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

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

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 standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional 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 water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want 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 instead of replacing it with 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.

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

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

This Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler gets its power from oil and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher oil bills.

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler has an output level of 20 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler is appropriate for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


The size of the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

There are hundreds of thousands of properties whose central heating systems are powered by floor-standing boilers like the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW. If you're considering switching from your current floor-standing to a new wall-mounted model to free up space inside your home for you and your family, we can do this work for you. However, when you change the type of boiler in your home, please bear in mind that we often need to replace the piping at extra cost.

However, given the quarterly savings you'll make on your oil bills as a result of switching, you should be able to recoup your investment in full within a few years.

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

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

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your oil bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW has been awarded an efficiency rating of 92% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW is rated "A".

If the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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

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

Looking for a oil heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW may be an option you should consider.

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 the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler from the Boiler House Classic range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for oil than is necessary.

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler has an output level of 20 kW, so which types of property would it 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 in height, TBC mm in width and TBC mm in depth.

If you want to replace your floor-standing boiler with a more compact, wall-mounted model, this will give you and your family more space. Hundreds of thousands of homes in the UK still use floor-standing boilers like the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW, but wall-mounted models have been the most popular choice for homeowners over the last two decades. We can replace your floor-mounted unit with a wall-mounted unit, but please be aware that the cost of installation will be higher if we need to replace your current piping.

However, you can recoup this investment in full over a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

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

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning oil to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your oil bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting 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 the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW was given an efficiency rating of 92% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW is "TBC".

Does the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH1 20kW heat only boiler come with a warranty?
