Vokèra Launches Visionary New Boiler

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.

“We seek to further enhance our already impressive range of products and continue to listen to the needs of our customers. In light of this, and to celebrate the launch, we are offering installers a five-year warranty on the Vision, if purchased before December 31 2012.”

To coincide with the launch, Vokèra is giving away a variety of rewards including football shirts, stadium tours and computer games to Affinity members purchasing their first Vision combi and/or their first Vision system boiler between July 1 and October 31 2012.

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.


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
