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

What type of boiler is the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW - regular, system or combi?

You may wish to consider installing the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Is the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler from the Promax Ultra range a suitable choice 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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler has an output rate of 24 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler is most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW boiler?

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW has the following dimensions - 625 mm high, 370 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

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

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW is a condensing gas boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

Is the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would choosing the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW has been assigned an efficiency rating of 89.1% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW is "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW boiler?

On the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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

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

You may wish to consider installing the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW 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 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 Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler is 24 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What is the size of the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW?

The size of the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW boiler is 625 mm tall, 370 mm wide, and 270 mm deep.

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

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

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

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

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

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

Is there a warranty on the Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW heat only boiler if it breaks down?

The Potterton Promax Ultra 24kW boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
