Atag iR 40 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Atag IR 40 - standard, combi or system?

Atag’s IR 40 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Is the Atag IR 40 heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing 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".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Atag IR 40 heat only has an output of 38 kW, so which types of property would this Atag iR 40 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Atag IR 40 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What dimensions does a Atag IR 40 have?

The Atag IR 40 is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

Is the Atag IR 40 condensing or non-condensing?

The Atag IR 40 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 heat only Atag IR 40 boiler energy efficient?

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.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Atag IR 40 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Atag IR 40 is rated as 94% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Atag IR 40 is "A".

How many years' warranty does the Atag IR 40 heat only come with?

A parts and labour warranty of 14 years is included with the Atag Atag IR 40 boiler.

Atag iR 40 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Atag IR 40 a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Atag IR 40 might be an option for you to consider.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Is a Atag IR 40 heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Atag iR 40 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 38 kW?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Atag iR 40 heat only boiler in would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is a Atag IR 40 boiler?

The Atag IR 40 measures TBC mm in height and has a width of TBC mm and a depth of TBC mm.

Is the Atag IR 40 condensing or non-condensing?

The Atag IR 40 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the Atag IR 40 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Is the Atag IR 40 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 IR 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.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Atag IR 40 is "A".

Am I covered if my Atag IR 40 heat only boiler breaks down?

The Atag IR 40 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 14 years.
