Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Is the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only's output level is 24 kW, so which types of property would this Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced heating engineer would recommend that the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler is a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW - size in millimetres

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW occupies a space of 625 mm high by 370 mm wide and 270 mm deep.

Is the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas 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 gas to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 gas bills.

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "89.1%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW is "TBC".

Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW - a regular, combi or system boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Is a Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

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 gas bills than you need to for years to come.

Would choosing a Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 89.1% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

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 Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW is "A".
