Alpha E-Tec System Boilers

The average price of the Alpha E-Tec System Boiler ranges between £834.48 and £901.06 including VAT and excluding installation.

Alpha E-Tec System

Manufactured by Alpha, the E-Tec System is a compact gas condensing boiler that can easily fit inside a standard kitchen cupboard.

The 20kW unit measures 712mm (H) x 440mm (W) x 255mm (D) and the 30kW system has a different depth of 276, both of which must be installed together with a cylinder for storing your hot water. With two fully-modulating outputs available, this model is designed to suit most property sizes and homes with more than one bathroom.

Alpha E-Tec System prices vary based on size and typically range from £834.48 to £901.06, which includes a 5-year warranty as standard.

Boiler Energy Efficiency Credentials

This wall mountable boiler by Alpha is highly efficient and boasts an efficiency rating of 93%. As a result, the E-Tec System is ErP A rated and will play its part in making your home more energy efficient. By being a condensing model with a modulating output, the boiler recovers energy that would otherwise be wasted and can automatically adjust its heat output to match demand. It also has its own Grundfos pump to reduce gas consumption and increase the amount of money you save on your fuel bills.

E-Tec System Technology and Main Advantages

As the important components are built into the boiler and can be assessed from the front of the unit, the Alpha E-Tec System is easier to service and maintain. In turn, you shouldn’t have to spend too much on servicing and maintenance works. This also helps to make installation neater and less disruptive.

The boiler has many impressive features including a reliable stainless steel heat exchanger, as well as a high efficiency Grundfos pump and hydroblock assembly. In addition to these parts, this model comes with a combined condensate and pressure relieve valve connection, along with a zinc plated expansion vessel to protect the unit from corrosion.

This appliance also features push-button controls and a backlit LCD display so that you can adjust temperatures and manage the boiler with ease. If you want to improve efficiency and comfort levels, you can purchase a range of optional controls, such as a Climatic control or weather compensation probe.

Is the Alpha E-Tec System the Right Boiler Type and Size for Your Home?

Alpha’s E-Tec System is suitable for small, medium and large properties and offers a higher output option for homes where demand is greater. It’s also ideal if you have multiple bathrooms and use a lot of hot water from many taps at the same time. Plus, you don’t need to have a feed and expansion tank with this system boiler, making it a great choice for dwellings with little or no loft space. But remember, you must ask a Gas Safe engineer to view your home and assess your typical usage habits to determine the right boiler model and output for your needs.

Our Honest Opinion of the Alpha E-Tec System

If you have multiple bathrooms and a high demand for hot water, it might be worth considering the Alpha E-Tec System. It does require an additional hot water cylinder (usually found in the airing cupboard), but the boiler itself is small and can be installed into many locations within the home. Plus, it’s efficient and economical to run straight out of the box and you can maximise both comfort and energy savings with a choice of optional intelligent controls.

When it comes to customer satisfaction, Alpha boilers have an excellent 4.8 out of 5 rating – and you can find many reviews to back this up on the brand’s website. The company must have upped its game a bit in recent years though, as Alpha boilers only received an average score for reliability according to a 2016 Which? survey. However, the E-Tec System is supplied with a generous 5-year warranty, which means you’ll be protected in the case of a fault or breakdown.

Advice on Boiler Quotes and Gas Safe Engineers

To get the best priced Alpha E-Tec System and boiler installation, we recommend you get quotes from a variety of providers to allow you to compare costs. When doing so, don’t forget to ask for a fixed price on the boiler unit and installation to avoid any hidden charges. You must also make sure your chosen installer is Gas Safe registered and legally permitted to work on gas appliances. It’s easy to find out, simply ask to view their ID card or search the official list of registered engineers at the Gas Safe Register website. If you prefer, you can use our free online service to receive no-obligation quotes from fully qualified installers who are listed on the register.
