Atag iC 36 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Atag IC 36 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your flat or house? Then the Atag IC 36 may be an option you should consider.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

Is a Atag IC 36 combi a suitable choice for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big the boiler is - it means how big its "output" is.

This Atag iC 36 Combi boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

The Atag IC 36 combi boiler has an output level of 31 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would likely recommend that this Atag iC 36 Combi boiler is suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

In addition to output rates, you need to consider a combi boiler's flow rate when making your choice.

The flow rate of your boiler dictates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time.

However, a combi boiler like the Atag IC 36 can only heat and deliver water at the rate at which it actually enters your property. For this reason, you should also find out what the mains pressure to your house is before purchasing a boiler.

It's pointless spending more money on a boiler with a 17l/m flow rate if the local water pressure is 11l/m. To give you an indication of average water demand, a power shower typically requires 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap 4-8 litres. This Atag iC 36 Combi boiler's flow rate is 15 L/m.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What are the dimensions of the Atag IC 36 boiler?

The Atag IC 36 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Atag IC 36 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Atag IC 36 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Atag IC 36 combi considered environmentally friendly?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Is the Atag IC 36 combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Atag IC 36 was given a 94% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Atag IC 36, the ERP rating is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

Atag iC 36 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Atag IC 36?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Atag IC 36.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Should I install a Atag IC 36 combi boiler in my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Atag IC 36 combi's output is 31 kW, so which types of property would this Atag iC 36 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You'll also need to be sure to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for your home.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can distribute at any given time. This means that if you and your family are likely to be using several taps and showers simultaneously or you have a lot of radiators, you need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Atag iC 36 Combi boiler's flow rate is 15 L/m.

As with all combi boilers, the Atag IC 36 is only able to heat and distribute water at the rate at which it actually enters your property.

For this reason, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a very high flow rate if the flow rate in your mains pipes is lower because the extra capacity doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What are the dimensions of the Atag IC 36 boiler?

The Atag IC 36 measures TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Atag IC 36 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Atag IC 36 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Atag IC 36 combi boiler good for the environment?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would choosing the Atag IC 36 combi be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Atag IC 36 has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from the initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Atag IC 36 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What is the warranty period for the Atag IC 36?

The Atag IC 36 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 14 years.
