Alpha Heating Innovation’s Intec 30GS boilers have recently been utilised on a Southern Households development of three to four bed houses on the Isle of Wight, providing a cost-effective means of reaching the Domestic Emissions Rate (DER), Alpha says.
Southern Households standard practice is to meet the DER for its homes by exceeding the minimum insulation requirement, using mineral wool full fill products. However, with the Isle of Wight exposed to strong winds and driving rain, mineral wool was not suitable. Watertight Plumbing Solutions therefore recommended that the TER was met by installing higher efficiency boilers from Alpha.
The Alpha InTec 30GS is a wall-mounted condensing combination boiler with an in-built passive flue gas heat recovery device – Alpha’s GasSaver technology.
A GasSaver increases the overall efficiency of a heating or hot water system, Alpha says. The compact unit extracts heat from waste gases that are normally expelled into the atmosphere through the boiler flue.www.alpha-innovation.co.uk
