Vokera Compact A 29A Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

You may wish to consider installing the Vokera Compact A 29A if you are looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

A combi boiler could be a better choice than a standard boiler if space is at a premium in your home. Combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank.

Water is heated on demand and then distributed directly to your taps and showers. This means that combi boilers use less fuel and so reduce your gas bills.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a limited volume of water at any given time. If more than one tap or shower is in use, the hot water supply to both could be restricted and both the water pressure and temperature will drop.

Should I install a Vokera Compact A 29A combi boiler in my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that 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’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

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

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers like the Vokera Compact A 29A, you need to take the flow rate into account as well as the output rate.

Combi boilers draw water from the mains and then instantly heat that water and send it to wherever in your home it's needed. Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, are subject to the mains water pressure in your area. So, for example, if the local mains water pressure is 11 litres per minute and the flow rate of your boiler is 14 litres per minute, the boiler will not be able to process more than 11 litres per minute. The flow rate of this Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler is TBCl/m.

If you live in a home with lots of radiators or bathrooms where many people want to use hot water at the same time, a combi boiler may not be able to cope. For reference, a power shower uses about 10 litres of water per minute. If two people want showers at the same time or one person wants a shower and the other hot water from a tap in the kitchen, your boiler may not have a large enough flow rate even if the local mains water pressure is high.

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.


How large is the Vokera Compact A 29A?

The Vokera Compact A 29A measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

Compact A 29A – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Vokera Compact A 29A improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

How does the Vokera Compact A 29A combi boiler rate environmentally?

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

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

Will installing a Vokera Compact A 29A combi in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

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".

Is there a warranty on the Vokera Compact A 29A combi boiler if it breaks down?

The Vokera Compact A 29A is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of TBC years.

Vokera Compact A 29A Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Vokera Compact A 29A boiler may be worth considering.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is the Vokera Compact A 29A combi suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Vokera Compact A 29A Combi 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 gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Vokera Compact A 29A combi is TBCkW, so which types of property is this Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler appropriate for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Vokera Compact A 29A Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

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 size

The Vokera Compact A 29A stands at TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

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

We recommend the Vokera Compact A 29A as it is a modern condensing gas boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more gas.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly gas costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the Vokera Compact A 29A combi good for the environment?

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.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing the Vokera Compact A 29A combi 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 Vokera Compact A 29A has been assigned an efficiency rating of 89% with a SEDBUK rating of "B".

What warranty does the Vokera Compact A 29A combi boiler come with?

The parts and labour warranty on the Vokera Compact A 29A lasts for TBC years.
