Alpha E-Tec Boilers | A Guide to the Range

With over 50 years’ experience, Alpha combine traditional business values with a highly innovative approach, delivering comprehensive heating and hot water solutions that are designed to meet the needs of every home. In this guide, we’re going to be taking a look at the Alpha E-Tec Combi Boiler range.

Alpha E-Tec

The Alpha E-Tec is one of our best selling gas condensing combination boilers thanks to its great affordability without compromising on quality. The E-Tec is also Alpha’s smallest model yet, making it ideal for small and medium sized homes and fitting in standard kitchen cupboards.

The E-Tec is ideal for small and medium sized homes. The entire E-Tec range features brand new stainless steel heat exchangers and zinc plated expansion vessels, making them highly robust, more corrosion resistant and much longer lasting. Taking these extra steps to maximise the longevity of your boiler life is what makes this range stand out against its competitors, who mostly use aluminium heat exchangers.

The E-Tec also has a high-efficiency pump which helps to deliver impressive hot water flow ratings between 12.4 (28kW) and 14.1 (33kW) litres of hot water per minute and the single electrode drive charge is very easy to access, meaning your Alpha combi boiler will be easy to control and manage after installation.

Alpha E-Tec Features

Here are some of the features of the Alpha E-Tec boiler:

  • Stainless steel heat exchanger
  • High efficiency pump and hydroblock assembly
  • Easy-access dry-change NTCs
  • Combined condensate and pressure relief valve connection
  • Zinc plated expansion vessel to prevent corrosion
  • Rated A (89%) for energy efficiency
  • W 440mm, D 255mm, H 712mm
  • 10 Year Warranty with iHeat
  • Two available outputs: Alpha E-Tec 28kW, Alpha E-Tec 33kW
  • 12.4-14.1 litres/minute

Alpha E-Tec Plus

The E-Tec Plus is similar to the E-Tec but is physically larger in size and has a few extra benefits, such as copper pipe tails with isolation valves, an integrated filling loop and a control panel and bottom cover. They’re also a fair bit more efficient than the standard E-Tec, with an A Rating of 93%, helping you to make significant savings on your home heating bills.

It is available in 3 different sizes, 28kW, 33kW and 38kW, making it ideal for medium-larger sized homes thanks to the additional power output option, delivering impressive hot water flow rates between 12.1 and 15.9 litre/min.

This means that it is more than equipped to keep your home at the right temperature all year long without costing you an arm and a leg to do so thanks to its low purchase price and high efficiency ratings.

Which Should You Buy?

If you’re looking for a high quality boiler for an affordable price then a model from the E-Tec range is certainly a great place to look. Unsure of which you should opt for between the two? To put it simply, the E-Tec Plus is very similar to the E-Tec bar a few additional features such as the control panel and bottom cover.

Realistically speaking, it's unlikely you’d notice the difference enough to spend an extra few hundred pounds, so we would recommend the standard Alpha E-Tec model, unless of course you require the higher power output (38kW) for your home.
