If you’re considering upgrading to a new gas central heating system, you may want to look into getting a boiler from Alpha Boilers. Manufactured and installed in the UK by an independent family business since 1938, Alpha has a proud history in the heating industry. And they’re committed to bringing top-quality products and service to customers across the country. When you look after your Alpha boiler, it can last for over 20 years, which makes it great value for money.
One of the best heating system manufacturers in the UK is Alpha. Boilers made by Alpha are some of the most highly-regarded and reliable on the market, which is why Alpha has been awarded an ‘Excellent’ customer satisfaction rating in the Which? Trusted Trader customer satisfaction survey 2018. The company has been in operation for over 30 years now, so it’s seen a lot of changes in that time – but it’s still at the peak of its game and makes some fantastic products.
If you live in a detached house or bungalow, or even a terraced house, you’ll probably need a boiler with an output of between 15kw and 40kw. If this is the case, then investing in an Alpha combi boiler could be the right choice for you.
Alpha combi boilers provide an economical, cheap way to heat a home. They use programmable controls to monitor energy use and can be configured to operate as efficiently as possible.
An Alpha combi boiler is the perfect fit for smaller properties with 1-2 bathrooms. If your property has a 3rd bathroom, we recommend our Alpha Condensing Combi Boiler. If you're not sure what you need, take a look at our combi boiler guide to get the right size of boiler for you.
A system boiler is a type of boiler that heats water to be stored in a hot water cylinder, allowing it to meet higher demands for domestic hot water. Although an Alpha system boiler with a 20 kW output rating would be able to heat around 12 radiators, it’s not necessarily required for every system.
Alpha system boilers come in a variety of sizes and output ratings, which is why it’s important to be sure which one would be best for you. An Alpha 20 kW boiler with an IP55 rating can provide you with plenty of hot water at home, as well as being matched with other machines in your system to meet your desired output.
A regular boiler is also known as a traditional boiler and includes hot water cylinders. These boilers require particularly bulky pipework, which is fine when a property is being built but can be a problem when an existing home needs to be converted.
Alpha’s range of regular boilers is designed specifically for people that are seeking to replace their existing boilers as opposed to those wishing to install a brand new boiler. Regular boilers will work alongside the existing pipework and can replace existing energy inefficient models.
The chances are that if you own an Alpha boiler, there will come a time when it fails. And if it does, the first step to fixing any boiler problem is knowing which fault code is appearing on the machine. Fortunately, most Alpha boilers use standard fault codes so that the meaning of each one is consistent across all makes and models.
All modern Alpha boilers use a smart control system that records fault codes whenever something goes wrong. This makes it much easier for your engineer to identify and fix the issue. When there is a fault, one of the first things the boiler does is flash up an Alphameric code. These codes are easy to identify and there might be more than one fault code, but not always - it depends on the issue.
We've compiled a list of all Alpha boiler error codes so you can diagnose any potential problems and have them rectified by an engineer.
