Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600?

If you are considering installing a electric Flow boiler in your house or flat, then the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Should I install a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler in my home?

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 electric than you need to.

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

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 boiler?

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

Is this Heatrae Sadia boiler non-condensing or condensing?

Since 2005, all oil or gas boilers manufactured or installed in the UK must be more efficient condensing boilers. What this means is that the warmth present in exhaust gases created by the burning of oil or gas must be recycled via a secondary heat exchanger to, for example, heat water coming back from the radiators. As electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 do not burn fuel, they are exempt from this law as they are more efficient and economical by design.

How does the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow rate environmentally?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

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.

Will choosing to install a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow in your home help the environment? Let's review 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 is however penalised in its ERP ratings for using electricity for power.

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.

This Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler has been awarded an ERP rating of "D".

Given that, operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99%, why the low score? It's because the electricity used to power the boiler is generated through the burning of fossil fuels and this is considered carbon-intensive. As a result, some boiler ERP scores are (in our opinion) unfairly marked down.

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 boiler?

On the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600, the manufacturer offers 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 a combi, system or regular boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler is worth considering if you want a electric Flow boiler.

Traditional boilers have one or two tanks - one holds hot water to keep it warm and the other water for later heating. Because UK residential property is among some of the smallest in the world, manufacturers introduced combi boilers and the heat pumps that go in them in the 1970s to reduce the amount of space boilers needed to take up.

The hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand when you have a combi boiler. Combi boilers use technology located within the boiler to heat cold water, which it draws from the mains, and to distribute hot water where it's needed around your home.

A combi boiler, however, has the disadvantage of a maximum capacity for the amount of water it can heat. The result is that if someone uses the shower while another uses a hot water tap simultaneously, the amount of water reaching each point falls, causing water pressure to drop.

Is a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher electric bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow is 6 kW, so which types of property is this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 is 1,050 mm high by 90 mm wide by 90 mm deep.

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

In 2005, the Government passed a law meaning that all gas and oil boilers had to be "condensing" boilers. What this means is that they all now must feature a secondary heat exchanger that recycles the gas and oil exhaust emissions to heat water coming back from the radiators, among other tasks. Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 do not create exhaust gases and therefore do not need this modification.

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

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.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK after April 2018 must achieve an "A" grade on the SEDBUK rating system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 was awarded an efficiency rating of 99.8% with a SEDBUK grading of "D".

However, the ERP rating for this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler is marked down because it runs on electricity.

Manufacturers who offer more environmentally friendly products are rewarded by the ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive).

Operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99% - however, because they use electricity, which is considered carbon-intensive energy, some are (in our opinion) unfairly scored down in their ERP ratings for this.

In the case of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600, the ERP rating is "D".

Will I be covered if the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow breaks down?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 are covered by a 2 year warranty.
