Atag iC 40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Atag IC 40 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Atag IC 40 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

A combi boiler could be a better choice than a standard boiler if space is at a premium in your home. Combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank.

Water is heated on demand and then distributed directly to your taps and showers. This means that combi boilers use less fuel and so reduce your gas bills.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a limited volume of water at any given time. If more than one tap or shower is in use, the hot water supply to both could be restricted and both the water pressure and temperature will drop.

Is the Atag IC 40 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 40 combi's output is 31 kW, so which types of property would this Atag iC 40 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Atag iC 40 Combi boiler be installed in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Please remember to consider "flow rates" as well when choosing your new boiler. All combi boilers including the Atag IC 40 draw water from the mains.

Each combi boiler has its own flow rate (measured in litres per minute) - this tells you how much water it can heat and distribute to your home’s taps and radiators straight from the mains. This Atag iC 40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

There is no benefit to you in choosing a combi with a high flow rate if your mains pressure is low - save money by buying a boiler whose flow rate is equal to or slightly more than the pressure in your water pipes.

In addition, if you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home or you have a large household that often uses lots of hot water at the same time, like for regular morning and evening showers, a combi boiler may not be suitable.

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.


Where will the Atag IC 40 fit in my house?

The size of the Atag IC 40 boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Atag IC 40 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Atag IC gas Atag IC 40 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

How does the Atag IC 40 combi boiler rate environmentally?

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.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Will choosing a Atag IC 40 combi boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the 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 40 has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Atag IC 40 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What is the warranty period for the Atag IC 40?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 14 years on the Atag IC 40 boiler to new customers.

Atag iC 40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Atag IC 40 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Atag IC 40 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

The UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world, which is partly why combi boilers were introduced in the 1970s. Traditional boilers require one or more large storage tanks which they use to either heat water and keep it warm or store water intended for heating later. These tanks took up a lot of space in people's homes.

Combi boilers save space because they don't require these tanks to operate. Instead, combis draw water direct from your mains supply then instantly heat and distribute it on demand.

The biggest disadvantage in using combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity volume for heating water. While this may not be an issue in a small household, it could be for a larger household where there is higher demand for hot water. When more than one person is using the water, it is distributed between the two points, reducing the pressure and temperature at each point.

Is a Atag IC 40 combi boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Atag IC 40 combi is 31 kW, so which types of property would this Atag iC 40 Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Atag iC 40 Combi boiler is most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Please remember to consider "flow rates" as well when choosing your new boiler. All combi boilers including the Atag IC 40 draw water from the mains.

How large is a Atag IC 40 boiler?

The dimensions of the Atag IC 40 are TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Atag IC 40 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Atag IC 40 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

Is the Atag IC 40 combi an energy-efficient boiler?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

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 40 has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan, including during the manufacturing process and when they're in actual use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Atag IC 40 has an ERP Heat rating of "A" and an ERP Water rating of "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Atag IC 40 boiler?

The Atag IC 40 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 14 years after installation.
