The Potterton Titanium Heat is an Energy Saving Trust endorsed boiler that is suitable for homes with high heating and hot water demands.
Weighing just 19.5kg, the Potterton Titanium Heat is an extremely lightweight boiler that also happens to be compact enough to fit inside a kitchen cupboard. Although designed for homes with higher hot water requirements, the boiler is available in five outputs to suit pretty much any property size. But that’s not all. This boiler is reasonably priced, has been awarded an A rating for efficiency and comes with a fantastic warranty.
How Much Does this Boiler Cost?
Titanium heat prices range from £700 to £840 including VAT, and the amount you’ll need to spend will depend on whether you go for the 12kW, 15kW, 18kW, 24kW or 30kW model. Then there’s the fitting cost to consider, which can vary greatly between installers. We always recommend you do your homework and compare boiler and installation costs before parting with your hard earned cash. If you don’t shop around and look at prices, you could end up paying more than necessary.
How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?
This is a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular or conventional boiler) and, like all boilers of this type, is a great choice for properties with multiple bathrooms and households that tend to use a lot of hot water at once. There is a downside, though. Heat only boilers require separate tanks in the loft and a hot water storage cylinder, so you’ll need enough loft and airing cupboard space to house these large components.
As the Potterton Titanium Heat comes in low and high heat outputs, it can meet the demands of small, medium and large homes. To find out which output is best suited to your property and needs, you’ll need to seek professional advice from a Gas Safe registered engineer.
Is it a High Efficiency Boiler?
It sure is. Not only is the Titanium Heat an Energy Saving Trust recommended boiler but it has a seasonal space heating energy efficiency of 93%. What does this mean? Well, it basically means that this is an A rated boiler that could potentially save you a load of money on your fuel bills. If you’re looking for exceptionally high levels of performance and efficiency, you can use the boiler with an optional Megaflo Eco Cylinder.
Does this Boiler have a Good Range of Controls and Features?
Potterton’s Titanium Heat doesn’t have the most impressive range of user controls but they are concealed and include a reset button and an adjustable central heating temperature control. When it comes to features, the boiler has an LED operating display and front and side access to all of the components for hassle-free repairs and servicing. It also comes with versatile flueing to make siting more flexible and an easy fit wall-mounting bracket to make fitting the boiler a doddle. This boiler does not need a pump overrun or permanent live, so installation should be quicker and less disruptive.
How long is the Warranty on this Boiler?
The Titanium Heat is backed by a 7-year parts and labour warranty as standard. Potterton offers a much shorter warranty than this on some of its other boilers, so the brand has been a bit more generous with this one.
