Atag iC 40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Atag IC 40 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a combi boiler for your flat or house.

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.

Should I install a Atag IC 40 combi boiler in my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Atag IC 40 combi is 31 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate 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.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Atag iC 40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


How large is the Atag IC 40?

The Atag IC 40 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Atag boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Atag IC 40 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Atag IC 40 combi?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Is the Atag IC 40 combi an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Atag IC 40 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Atag IC 40 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What is the warranty period on a Atag IC 40 combi boiler?

The Atag IC 40 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 14 years.

Atag iC 40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, then the Atag IC 40 is one you may wish to 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 40 combi boiler right for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Atag IC 40 combi is 31 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

To most boiler engineers, the Atag IC 40 combi IC would be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With combi boilers, flow rates are as important a consideration as output rates.

All combi boilers draw water from the mains. They then heat this water instantly whenever it's needed and distribute it to your radiators and taps.

A boiler's "flow rate" describes how much water a boiler can draw from the mains at any one time, which it then heats and sends around your home (measured in litres per minute). This Atag iC 40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

If your home has a large number of radiators, a lot of bathrooms, or multiple people who wish to use the hot water at the same time, your combi boiler may not be able to draw as much water from the mains as it needs to serve everyone, regardless of how high the flow rate is.

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 proportions of a Atag IC 40 boiler?

The Atag IC 40 has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Atag IC 40 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Atag IC 40 boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

How does the Atag IC 40 combi rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Atag IC 40 combi in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Atag IC 40 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The Atag IC 40 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

Will I be covered if the Atag IC 40 combi breaks down?

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