Atag iR 15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Atag IR 15 a system, regular or combi boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, then the Atag IR 15 is one you may wish to consider.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Would the Atag IR 15 heat only be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Atag IR 15 heat only outputs at a maximum of 14 kW, so which types of property would this Atag iR 15 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Atag IR 15 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Atag IR 15

The Atag IR 15 occupies a space of TBC mm high by TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Is the Atag IR 15 non-condensing or condensing?

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 IR 15 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 heat only Atag IR 15 boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would choosing the Atag IR 15 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Atag IR 15 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading 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 their 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 IR 15 has a rating of "A".

Does the Atag IR 15 heat only boiler come with a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Atag IR 15 lasts for 14 years.

Atag iR 15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Atag IR 15 a system, regular or combi boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Atag IR 15 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

Is the Atag IR 15 heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Atag IR 15 heat only's output at 14 kW, which types of property would this Atag iR 15 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Atag iR 15 heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for smaller homes and apartments with up to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is a Atag IR 15 boiler?

The Atag IR 15 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

IR 15 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Atag IR 15 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Atag IR 15 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing the Atag IR 15 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Atag IR 15 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Atag IR 15 has a rating of "A".

If the Atag IR 15 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Atag IR 15 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 14 years.
