Alpha E-Tec & E-Tec Plus Combi Boilers – 28kW, 33kW & 38kW

Alpha E-Tec 28kw Combi Boiler

There are 5 different E-Tec combi boilers including the Plus range. These combination boilers provide heating and hot water from the same unit.

With a compact design that can fit in most kitchen cupboards, they’re great for when space is at a premium.

Just because they are compact doesn’t mean that there is any compromise on power either. The E-Tec combi comes in 3 different outputs to ensure that there is one that will suit your hot water and heating needs.

Alpha E-Tec System Boilers – 20kW, 30kW & 32kW

As with any good boiler range, there are always a few options. If you have high hot water demand in your home or you have a larger home then the E-Tec system boiler will be perfect for you. This boiler will work with an old hot water tank if you have one.

If you don’t have one these will be an additional cost. There is only a 7 years standard warranty on their system boilers but you can get up to 10 years with some installation companies.

Alpha E-Tec Regular Boilers – 15kW, 20kW & 25kW

If your home has an older heating system it is likely that you may have both a hot water cylinder and a cold water storage tank in the loft or at height in your home. If so then the Alpha E-Tec regular boiler range will be right up your street.

Alpha E-Tec Boiler Installation

If you are now sold on a new Alpha Innovations boiler then you will need to consider the costs of the installation of your new unit. The cost of installation will completely depend on the labour costs.

If you already have a combi boiler and want to swap it for a replacement combi boiler such as the Alpha E-Tec 28Kw combi boiler then this will be a relatively low installation cost.

If you have a system boiler and want to change to a combi boiler for whatever reason, then this cost will be higher due to the work involved. Let’s take a look at some Alpha E-Tec boiler installation costs.

Alpha Boiler Vs Worcester Bosch

Everyone has heard of Worcester Bosch when it comes to boilers and it seems that any other boiler company has to compare with them.

Worcester Bosch make fantastic boilers but you do pay that bit more for them, they are regarded as producing the best combi boiler year on year.

Essentially the choice between an Alpha or a Worcester is price. You are still getting a 10-year guarantee on an Alpha boiler which suggests that they are confident their boilers will last just as long as any other boiler on the market.
