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

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

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 Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler is right for your property depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your oil bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 20 kW?

Most experienced heating engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler in would be 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 measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

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 Non-Condensing BH1 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 Non-Condensing BH1 20kW condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology. Unfortunately, the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW is NOT a condensing boiler.

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

You will also save money on your oil bills, and condensing boilers are kinder to the environment.

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

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

Would installing a Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW was given an efficiency rating of 87% and a SEDBUK grading of "B".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW has been given an ERP rating of "B".

If the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

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

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW a regular, combi or system boiler?

When looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW might be a suitable option for you.

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

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish 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 and not choose 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.

Is the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only suitable for my house or flat?

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

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


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

The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by 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 Non-Condensing BH1 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 Non-Condensing BH1 20kW a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing oil boilers on the market - this is NOT a condensing model.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your oil bill add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself over 5-10 years.

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

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 87% with a SEDBUK grading of "B".

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW has a rating of "B" .

If the Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Mistral Mistral Boiler House Classic Non-Condensing BH1 20kW boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.
