HPM September 2017

100 T R A D E C O U N T E R T R I V I A Guess the trivia question This month, Alpha is giving one HPM reader the chance to win an Amazon Echo. All you have to do is answer the question below. WHAT IS THE ANSWER? Combi boilers are now the preferred choice for homeowners and housebuilders, largely due to the impressive energy savings they can offer. Some larger homes will still opt for a system boiler with a storage cylinder because they are typically more able to meet increased hot water and heating demands. Alpha Heating Innovation offers a solution than combines the efficiency benefits of a combi boiler, with the performance of a system with a storage cylinder. FlowSmart is a complete system that incorporates a GasSaver flue gas heat recovery unit and thermal store, enabling it to meet the higher levels of demand and achieve a sustained flow rate of up to 18 litres per minute above 50°C. This easily surpasses the performance of a 200 litre unvented cylinder where the temperature will begin to drop below 40°C after ten minutes. Heating engineers will also be pleased to know that the technology has been designed to make the installation process as straightforward as possible. FlowSmart (pictured right) comes with a template for the boiler and the built-in GasSaver, which can be used to mark out where the boiler will be fitted. There is also a choice of fixing holes so that existing ones do not dictate where to place the boiler, making replacement jobs easier. Selecting FlowSmart provides the customer with a more energy efficient solution than a system boiler with hot water storage cylinder, meaning their energy bills will also decrease. With a simple set up the installation process can also happen quickly and efficiently – keeping everyone happy. Answer this question for a chance to win an Amazon Echo: What sustained flow rate can the FlowSmart achieve? A) 18 litres per minute above 60°C B) 18 litres per minute above 50°C C) 20 litres per minute above 50°C S P O T T H E VA N Terms and conditions: Winners will be selected at random and may be asked to quote the correct answer by phone.
