Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW - regular, system or combi?

You may wish to consider installing the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW if you are looking for a heat only 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 the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property 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 has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your oil bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only's output at 20 kW, which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How large is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Despite the increase in demand for compact, wall-mounted boilers over the last 20 years, hundreds of thousands of homes still have large floor-standing boilers like the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW. If you would like a wall-mounted boiler to replace your existing floor-standing unit to free up space, we can carry out this installation for you but please bear in mind that we may also need to replace your existing pipework, which will add extra costs to the work.

You should however be able to repay your investment in full within a few years with the savings you make on your oil bills.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better. The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW is NOT a condensing model, therefore we would not recommend it to you.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household oil bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

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 Non-Condensing BH1 20kW was given an efficiency rating of 87% and a SEDBUK grading of "B".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW is "B".

Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only Oil boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW?

You may wish to consider installing the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Should I install a Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler in my home?

Whether this Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW 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 Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only is 20 kW, so which types of property is this Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What size is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Compact wall-mounted boilers have been the models of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. But many thousands of properties in the UK still have a floor-standing boiler like the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW. If you're interested in switching to a wall-mounted unit to create extra space in your property, bear in mind that there might be a premium on the installation work because you may need to replace your current piping.

Newer compact boilers mean lower oil bills and you could recover the cost of your investment from those savings within a few years.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW is NOT 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.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only a good choice for the environment?

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

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would installing a Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

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 Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW was given an efficiency rating of 87% and a SEDBUK grading of "B".

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 Non-Condensing BH1 20kW is "TBC".

Am I covered if the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler breaks down?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
