Atag iR 18 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Atag IR 18 - regular, system or combi?

The Atag IR 18 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Is the Atag IR 18 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Atag IR 18 heat only boiler is 17 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Atag iR 18 heat only boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


What is the size of the Atag IR 18?

The Atag IR 18 measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Atag IR 18 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Atag IR 18.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

How energy efficient is the Atag IR 18 heat only?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Would installing a Atag IR 18 heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Atag IR 18 was awarded an efficiency rating of "94%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 IR 18, the ERP rating is "A".

Does the Atag IR 18 heat only boiler come with a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Atag IR 18 covers all repair-related costs for 14 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Atag iR 18 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Atag IR 18 fit into?

The Atag IR 18 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Is a Atag IR 18 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Atag IR 18 heat only's output at 17 kW, which types of property would this Atag iR 18 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Atag IR 18 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Atag IR 18 boiler?

The Atag IR 18 measures TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Atag boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Atag IR 18 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is choosing the Atag IR 18 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

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.

Would installing a Atag IR 18 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

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 18 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a band rating of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Atag IR 18 is "A".

Will I be covered if the Atag IR 18 heat only breaks down?

The Atag IR 18 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 14 years following installation.
