Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW 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 (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) need both a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater and a cold-water tank to work. The cold water tank (normally found in an attic or a loft) passes water when required to the hot water cylinder (normally found in a landing or airing cupboard), which heats the water and keeps it warm.

When you set the times you want for your hot water and central heating, the hot water for your taps, showers, baths and radiators is drawn from the hot water cylinder. Bear in mind though that, if you forget to program the system and the hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour for your hot water.

A heat only boiler is usually the recommended option for families or properties with multiple bathrooms. This is because, unlike combi boilers which can only effectively provide for one outlet at a time without a drop in water pressure, volume or temperature, standard boilers can handle demand from multiple points around the home at once.

Is a Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW 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 Classic CBH2 26kW heat only is 26 kW, so which types of property is this Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW heat only boiler appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW 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.


The size of the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW in millimetres

The measurements of the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW are TBC mm by TBC mm by TBC mm.

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 CBH2 26kW, 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.

Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW is a condensing oil boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your oil bills.

Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

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.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 Classic CBH2 26kW heat only has an output of 26 kW, so which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW

Many homeowners dislike the floor-standing boilers (like the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW) they have in their properties because they feel that they are bulky and take up too much room. 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.

Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW – condensing or non-condensing?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW 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.

How does the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW heat only rate environmentally?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Mistral Boiler House Classic CBH2 26kW was rated at 92% with 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.
