E-Tec combi boiler chosen for luxury apartments

31 August 2021

Output performance, easy operation and outstanding technical support have resulted in the Alpha E-Tec 28kW combi boiler being chosen for twelve luxury apartments as part of a larger renovation in Tonbridge, Kent.

Built in 1906 and converted into a care home for the elderly in 1946, the stunning Edwardian country manor house is set in a private residential area and boasts a communal garden and far-reaching countryside views. Architecturally the character of the building is being carefully preserved, while internally it is undergoing an exciting transformation to create the twelve one- and two-bedroom apartments complete with all new services and metering.

To match the high standards of the project it is critical that the new heating system will provide maximum comfort for residents while also ensuring optimum efficiency. Able to meet these requirements and more, the E-Tec 28kW combi boiler is considered by heating engineer, James Holder of J P Holder Plumbing & Heating, to be the perfect solution for these luxury apartments.

E-Tec boilers have long been James’ boiler of choice due to their excellent flow rates and because customers find them easy to understand. He said, “Alpha boilers are easy to fit, very intuitive to use and, thanks to their exceptional hot water outputs, the E-Tec 28 boilers fitted on this job will deliver 12.1 litres per minute”. James is also pleased with the additional specification of Alpha’s digital EasyStat wireless control for every apartment which will ensure residents can easily set time and temperature programmes.

Another factor contributing to E-Tec’s popularity with J P Holder is the generous E-Tec warranty of seven years which is increased to nine years with the addition of PremierPack Pro. As well extending warranty, this add-on automatically provides the protection of Alpha’s built-in Cyclone Plus magnetic filter which removes debris from the heating system and reduces the risk of damage to the boiler.

Technical support and servicing is also central to J P Holder’s relationship with Alpha Heating Innovation. Not only does James receive first class technical support through Alpha’s Area Sales Manager, Lee Mumford, but his past experience of the Alpha aftercare service is one that he rates as “second-to-none”.
