Compatible with its extensive range of energy efficient condensing boilers, Alpha has launched its Trace Heating Kit to help avoid boiler breakdown during the cold winter months.
The kit, which comprises a relay board, detecting wire and weather probe, helps protect against the effects of frozen condensate by detecting the exterior temperature and adjusting the boiler accordingly, ensuring the condensate pipe does not freeze and cause the boiler to breakdown which can be both costly and time consuming to fix.
During last year’s cold snap, around 60,000 call-outs in Yorkshire alone are said to have been made as a result of the cold weather causing this very problem. The simple installation of Alpha’s Trace Heating Kit would help avoid this problem from recurring; meaning the cost and inconvenience of needing repair work is eradicated.
Steve Hopkins, Product Marketing Manager for Alpha said: “Our trace heating kit is compatible with our entire range of condensing boilers and can help to avoid the problems encountered during the cold months when frozen condensate can cause a boiler to shut down.”
