Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 - a regular boiler, combi boiler or system boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 is a electric electric Flow boiler.

In older British homes, traditional boilers required you to find room for one or more storage tanks. One tank would keep hot water warm and the other stored cold water for later heating. Manufacturers introduced combi boilers to the UK in the 1970s so that homeowners could get the warmth and hot water they needed without having to sacrifice too much valuable space – remember that residential property in this country is among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers deliver hot water to your radiators and taps using water they draw directly from the mains supply. As mains water travels through a combi boiler, the technology within it heats the cold water instantly and on demand. The hot water is then distributed throughout your house.

Combi boilers have one drawback, however: they can only heat a certain amount of water within a given time. For example, if someone uses the shower and another person uses the hot water tap at the same time, water pressure drops because water reaches each point differently.

Would the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your electric bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for given its output of 6 kW?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 have?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 occupies a space of 1,050 mm high by 90 mm wide and 90 mm deep.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 – condensing or non-condensing?

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 do not produce exhaust gases, unlike gas and oil boilers, meaning that they do not need to be adapted to be "condensing". For a gas or oil boiler to be condensing, it must have a secondary heat exchanger that recycles the warmth present in exhaust gases to reheat water coming back from the radiators.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow?

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.

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.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

All boilers manufactured in the UK or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 has been awarded 99.8% for its energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "D" rating.

The boiler's poor ERP rating, however, reflects how it is marked down for running on electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. It was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 has been awarded an ERP rating of "D".

In truth, however, the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is 98% or 99% - a level no oil or gas boiler has yet reached. So why does it receive such a low ERP score? It's because fossil fuels generate the power used by electric boilers and factoring this in results in low efficiency scores since electricity generation is carbon-intensive. We're not sure this is a fair way of comparing energy efficiency given the advances in electric boiler technology over the last 5 years.

What is the warranty period on a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler?

Heatrae Sadia’s Amptec C600 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a electric electric Flow boiler for your flat or house? Then the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 may be an option you should 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.

Should I install a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler in my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your electric than you should be.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler has an output rate of 6 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 is 1,050 mm tall, 90 mm wide, and 90 mm deep.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 non-condensing or condensing?

The reason why the Government required all non-electric boilers to be "condensing" in 2005 was that they were much more energy-efficient. Rather than letting all exhaust gases escape into the atmosphere through the flue as older boilers did, condensing boilers use the warmth present in these gases to, for example, reheat water coming back from your radiators via a secondary heat exchanger. As electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 do not burn any fuel, they are more efficient by design, there are no gases to recycle, and so they are not covered by the 2005 law.

Is the electric Flow Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 boiler energy efficient?

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

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.

Will choosing a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 electric bills.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 was awarded an efficiency rating of "99.8%", equivalent to a "D" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The boiler's poor ERP rating reflects the fact that it runs on electricity.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products that require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

Because electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, this is factored into the scores of some ERP electric boilers - unfairly. Operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is generally around the 98-99% level.

The ERP rating for the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 is "D".

Am I covered if my Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty on the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 lasts for 2 years.
