Atag iR 18 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Atag IR 18 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

If you are considering installing a heat only boiler in your house or flat, then the Atag IR 18 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

You may hear a heat only boiler being called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler. With a regular boiler, you need to find room within your property for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually in the loft). The immersion cylinder is what keeps your hot water warm all day.

With a regular boiler, you schedule your hot water and heating for set times during the day or week, but if you forget to do so and the hot water runs out, you'll need to wait for your boiler to heat enough water before you can have a bath or shower - that can sometimes take up to an hour.

A regular boiler is suitable for homes with more than one bathroom or larger families when there is high demand for hot water. Although combi boilers are the most popular type of boiler in Britain, water pressure, volume and temperature drop if there is simultaneous demand from two or more points - for example, someone running a hot water tap when someone else is in the shower.

Should I install a Atag IR 18 heat only boiler in my home?

Whether this Atag iR 18 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Atag IR 18 heat only is 17 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Atag IR 18 heat only boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is the Atag IR 18?

The Atag IR 18 measures TBC mm in height and has a width of TBC mm and a depth of TBC mm.

Is the Atag IR 18 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Atag IR 18 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Atag IR 18 heat only 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 IR 18 heat only an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Atag IR 18 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

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

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

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

Is this Atag IR 18 heat only covered by a warranty?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Atag Atag IR 18 boiler are covered by a 14 year warranty.

Atag iR 18 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Atag IR 18 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

You might want to consider the Atag IR 18 for your house or flat if you are looking for a heat only boiler.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Is a Atag IR 18 heat only boiler right 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".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Atag IR 18 heat only boiler has an output of 17 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Atag IR 18 heat only would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


How large is the Atag IR 18?

The Atag IR 18's dimensions are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Is the Atag IR 18 condensing or non-condensing?

The Atag IR 18 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 18 heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

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

Will choosing to install a Atag IR 18 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Atag IR 18 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Atag IR 18 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

If the Atag IR 18 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Atag iR 18 heat only boiler covers you for 14 years.
