My wife and I would like to thank you all for the competence and excellent work carried out at our home, from the estimate and the fitter who plumbed in the new boiler, to the electrician who made our programmer work with the boiler, an excellent team of manpower seldom seen with so called professionals.
Vokera Evolve 42C Kw Combi
The Vokera Evolve 42C combi boiler is the most powerful of the five different models in the Evolve range. The firm has sold more than one and a half million boilers to customers in the UK and Ireland, many of which are combi boilers, which heat both the central heating and the hot water from one single unit in your kitchen, bathroom or anywhere else you choose to house your boiler.
If you have a medium to large home with up to two bathrooms, the Vokera Evolve 42C combi boiler would be suitable for your needs. For bigger properties, or those with more bathrooms and higher demand on hot water at the same time, a system boiler might prove a better option. If you are not sure about the best type of boiler for your home, book in a free home survey with Clever Energy Boilers today. We assess your home and requirements and make a no-obligation, fixed-price recommendation based on that.
We generally recommend boilers from Worcester Bosch, which consistently tops the Which? Magazine list of trusted boiler brands. Vokera, by comparison, was ranked as one of the least popular brands by both customers and gas engineers. They cited poor reliability as well as the difficulty involved in repairing and servicing models such as the Vokera Evolve 42C combi boiler when delivering their verdict.
Vokera Evolve C
All of the boilers in the Vokera Evolve C range come with the same basic features. They are A-rated for both central heating and hot water when it comes to efficiency. This means that they waste less fuel than older boilers when powering the device and, therefore, a higher percentage of the money you spend running the boiler goes into the warmth you receive back. This means they cost less to run and they are better for the environment. With an optional extra BeSMART internet connected thermostat, you can boost the space heating rating to A+.
The Vokera Evolve C boilers are all combi boilers and can be used with either natural gas or LPG. They also all contain an in-built carbon monoxide monitor. If it detects excess carbon monoxide in the environment, it stops the boiler from working immediately. You can then not power the boiler up again until the CO level has returned to normal. This is a safety feature that will be a real selling point to many prospective boiler customers.
The liquid display on the user console contains full text alerts, allowing you to easily discover any issues that may occur. Gas engineers can diagnose problems accurately and fix them more efficiently thanks to this addition to the boiler.
Each Vokera Evolve C boiler also comes with a ten-year warranty. This compares favourably to similar boilers on the market.
Vokera Evolve 42C Price
The Vokera Evolve 42C price depends on a number of different factors. When you install a new boiler, the amount of labour that goes into the job has an effect on the cost. Moving the location of the boiler in your home will usually cost more than simply installing a new boiler into the same position as the old one. The fitter may have to reroute pipework and install a new flue, which will add to the Vokera Evolve 42C price. Similarly, it will cost less to swap an old combi boiler for a new one than it will be to take out an old system boiler and replace it with a combi boiler.
To get a fixed quote for the work, you need to book in a Clever Energy Boilers home survey. This is absolutely free and you are under no obligation to buy once the survey is complete and the quote delivered. Our trusted and experienced staff member will come to your home so they can work out what work will be involved in supplying and fitting your new boiler. They will then recommend both standard and premium options. If you are keen on the Vokera Evolve 42C, they can offer you a price for fitting that specific boiler, even if they would recommend other makes and models.
Vokera boilers do tend to be amongst the cheaper end of the market. However, that is reflected in the build quality, which lags behind the big players such as Worcester Bosch and Ideal.
Vokera Evolve C Size
If you are unsure on which Vokera Evolve C size option to plump for, the home survey will answer your question. The Vokera Evolve 42C combi boiler is the biggest model in terms of the power it outputs. This makes it suitable for medium to large homes with up to two bathrooms, whereas the smallest in the range, the Vokera Evolve 24C is better suited to smaller properties with just one bathroom.
There are five different Vokera Evolve C size levels – 24kW, 28kW, 32kW, 36kW and 42kW. The kilowatt figure is the amount of power they produce when running. The larger the power, the more it can heat up, essentially.
The idea is to find a boiler size that offers enough power to meet the needs of your home and family without providing too much power that is then wasted. Finding that perfect level will save you money on your heating bills, compared with an old, inefficient boiler, while remaining toasty and warm.
Our home surveyor will calculate the ideal Vokera Evolve C size for your home by noting the number of radiators and bathrooms, and calculating the heat loss from the property.
Vokera System Boiler
If a Vokera combi boiler will not produce enough power to heat your home or cannot handle your family’s hot water usage, it is worth looking into a Vokera system boiler instead. A system boiler works by storing pre-heated water in a cylinder, ready to distribute it when the hot tap or shower is turned on. You can use as much instant hot water as you like until the cylinder is empty. At which point, you need to wait until it fills again.
You don’t have to rely on the flow of water from the mains like you do with a combi boiler, so a system boiler can service multiple baths, showers and sinks with no problems.
There is a Vokera Evolve S range of system boilers that is the equivalent of the Evolve C combi boiler selection. Your Vokera system boiler will come with many of the same features, including the ten-year guarantee, full text display and carbon monoxide detector.
