 10:1 modulation explained:

The Unica i range boasts an enviable modulation ratio of 10:1, this high ratio enables the boiler output to be reduced to as little as 10%.

For example the 28kW Unica i can reduce its output to just 2.8kW, so when the home only requires 3kW, the boiler will modulate itself down to 3kW.  Boilers with an inferior ratio, for example 4:1 would only reduce to 7kW, resulting in wasteful on/off cycling and reduced efficiency. A high modulation ratio can significantly reduce wasteful on/off cycles, which in turn, will increase component longevity and helps to ensure stable domestic hot water temperatures.

In simple terms; 10:1 modulation = better fuel efficiency, increased component longevity, optimal comfort.

Vokèra Supports National Energy Efficiency Campaign: Hole in the Roof

Vokèra is supporting the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council’s Hole in the Roof campaign. Launching today, November 12 2012 its purpose is to raise the awareness of energy efficiency by getting people to take action and make a change in their homes that could result in financial savings.

Hole in the Roof would like consumers to change their behaviour and stop wasting energy that is metaphorically disappearing through the roof as well as depleting the pocket. Consumers can view the Hole in the Roof website and click on any technology or heating system measure to find out what change could suit them best. This can be a simple measure like draft proofing, putting a balloon up your chimney, radiator reflectors or installing a renewable technology.

The website has a 2D house where consumers can click on various heating technologies in the house such as thermostats, solar thermal, showers, heat pumps, controls and other measures. This user friendly website will enable the public to find out more about how they can save energy and become more energy efficient. Human behaviour is one of the hardest things to change and we want people to become more aware of their actions but not preach to them and also appeal to all publics not just the green community. At the end of the day, energy costs keep rising and will hit many pockets hard as winter approaches, we need people to realise that they need to prevent money from literally disappearing through the roof.

Hole in the Roof is supported by leading environmentalist, Tony Juniper, BBC’s DIY SOS Charlie Luxton, financial expert, Jasmine Birtles and Director General of Saga, Dr Ros Altmann.

Roger Webb, HHIC Director said: “The Hole in the Roof campaign is all about making simple changes in the home in order to make your environment more energy efficient. We have some well-respected supporters from a variety of fields who all support us in our aim to raise the importance of energy efficiency. We want people to become enthused about changing their behaviour to sign up to the fact that as a collective whole we can make a difference. We can’t force people to change their behaviour but we can try to tap into the reasons they might want to. The Hole in the Roof campaign provides a fun and interactive website and a humorous animation to watch called: The Romans all to help kick-start action.”

Boiler manufacturer Vokèra has launched the Vision range of combi and system boilers. Designed to be installer-friendly and feature-rich, benefits include a rear flue option, a five-year warranty*, a built-in seven-day digital clock**, low NOx emissions and a light 26kg lift weight.

Suitable for a range of applications, the combi Vision includes 25C and 30C options and the system version is available in 20S and 25S options. Weighing just 25kg and 26kg respectively, the Vision system and combi boilers are easy for installers to lift and fit into small spaces, such as a kitchen cupboard. Further to this, the rear flue option adds to the ease of installation and gives multiple siting possibilities.

The added bonus of a built-in seven-day digital clock allows homeowners to programme bespoke heating functions per day, offering maximum flexibility. In addition, homeowners can expect a flow rate of 12 l/pm***. With the Vision’s NOx emissions being as low as 21mg/kWh, it is an ideal choice for social housing applications and can contribute towards achieving level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Steve Cipriano, managing director of Vokèra, comments: “Our goal with the new Vision boiler was to create an installer-friendly, feature-rich product that would surpass other domestic boilers in technology, design, ease of installation and reliability.

Gas Safety Week: Take care, be Gas Safe

We are proud to be supporting Gas Safety Week taking place 10th -16th September 2012

Gas Safety Week is co-ordinated by Gas Safe Register, the official list of gas engineers who are legally allowed to work on your gas boiler, gas cooker and gas fire. Gas Safety Week aims to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of your gas appliances. It is a national campaign with events, advertising and PR taking place across the country to help keep the nation Gas Safe.

engineer_showing_id_card_at_door

Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. Every year thousands of people across the UK are diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning. It is a highly poisonous gas. You can’t see it, taste it or smell it, but it can kill quickly with no warning.

By taking care of your gas appliances properly you are taking care of your home and your loved ones. Follow these top tips to help keep you and your family gas safe:

  • Make sure only a Gas Safe registered engineer works on your gas appliances. Illegal gas fitters can put your life at risk
  • Always check the engineer’s Gas Safe Register ID card
  • Make sure gas appliances have a regular service and a gas safety check every 12 months
  • Look out for warning signs that your gas appliances aren’t working correctly e.g. lazy yellow or orange flames instead of crisp blue ones, black marks on or around the appliance and too much condensation in the room
  • Know the signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning – headaches, dizziness, breathlessness, nausea, collapse and loss of consciousness
  • Install an audible carbon monoxide alarm
  • If you smell gas call the gas emergency number on 0800 111 999

For gas safety advice or to find and check an engineer visit the Gas Safe Register website at www.GasSafeRegister.co.uk. Alternatively call the free helpline on 0800 408 5500.
