Vokera Compact A 29A Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Vokera Compact A 29A boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, then the Vokera Compact A 29A is one you may wish to consider.

In older British homes, traditional boilers required you to find room for one or more storage tanks. One tank would keep hot water warm and the other stored cold water for later heating. Manufacturers introduced combi boilers to the UK in the 1970s so that homeowners could get the warmth and hot water they needed without having to sacrifice too much valuable space – remember that residential property in this country is among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers deliver hot water to your radiators and taps using water they draw directly from the mains supply. As mains water travels through a combi boiler, the technology within it heats the cold water instantly and on demand. The hot water is then distributed throughout your house.

Combi boilers have one drawback, however: they can only heat a certain amount of water within a given time. For example, if someone uses the shower and another person uses the hot water tap at the same time, water pressure drops because water reaches each point differently.

Should I install a Vokera Compact A 29A combi boiler in my home?

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 gas 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 Vokera Compact A 29A combi's output at TBCkW, which types of property would this Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

When choosing a combi boiler like the Vokera Compact A 29A, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate. Flow rates (measured in litres per minute) indicate the volume of hot water that the boiler can heat up and then distribute to your taps and radiators.

However, combi boilers draw water from the mains and this means they can only heat the amount of water that actually enters your property.

What this means is that, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, that is your boiler's effective flow rate even if it has the capacity to process 18 litres per minute. This Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

To give you an idea of the flow rate you might need, a power shower typically requires around 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap requires 4-8 litres per minute.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What size is a Vokera Compact A 29A boiler?

The size of the Vokera Compact A 29A boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Vokera boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Vokera Compact A 29A - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

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

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Vokera Compact A 29A combi?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

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.

Is the Vokera Compact A 29A combi an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Vokera Compact A 29A are 89% with a SEDBUK rating of "B".

Does a Vokera Compact A 29A combi boiler come with a warranty period?

The Vokera Compact A 29A boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to TBC years after installation.

Vokera Compact A 29A Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Vokera Compact A 29A a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Vokera Compact A 29A.

Traditional boilers have one or more large tanks in which they store either heated water or water to be heated later. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to the market in the 1970s to enable homeowners to save space - UK residential properties are among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers don't need these tanks because they draw water directly from the mains and instantly heat it on demand thanks to the technology inside the boiler. Combi boilers then distribute this hot water to your home’s taps and radiators when needed.

The most significant disadvantage of combi boilers is that they are not ideal in larger homes where multiple people might want hot water at the same time – for example, if someone is having a shower while another wants to wash dishes in the kitchen. This is because combi boilers have a maximum volume of water that they can heat. When two people want hot water at the same time, the water temperature, pressure and volume delivered to both points drop.

Is the Vokera Compact A 29A combi boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big the boiler is - it means how big its "output" is.

This Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

The Vokera Compact A 29A combi boiler has an output level of TBCkW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for smaller homes and apartments with up to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

You also need to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for where you live.

A combi boiler's flow rate is the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your radiators, taps and showers at the same time. This Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

However, combi boilers like the Vokera Compact A 29A draw water directly from the mains and heat it instantly.

If your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, your boiler can only heat and distribute hot water at a rate of 12 litres per minute even if it has a higher flow rate.

Combi boilers also struggle when multiple people in your home want to use hot water at the same time - for example, someone running the hot water tap in the kitchen and two people wanting to shower in separate bathrooms.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


Vokera Compact A 29A dimensions

The Vokera Compact A 29A has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Vokera Compact A 29A non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Vokera Compact A gas Vokera Compact A 29A for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Vokera Compact A 29A combi?

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

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Will choosing to install a Vokera Compact A 29A combi in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

The Vokera Compact A 29A has been awarded an efficiency rating of 89% and a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

How many years' warranty does the Vokera Compact A 29A combi come with?

The Vokera Compact A 29A boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to TBC years after installation.
