Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new electric Flow boiler.

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler from the Amptec range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting 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".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

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

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600?

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

Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 – condensing or non-condensing?

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 don't need to be modified to be "condensing" boilers because they operate differently to gas and electric boilers. Condensing non-electric boilers recycle the exhaust gases created as part of their operation to, among other tasks, heat water coming back from radiators. Electric boilers do not create exhaust gases and are, by design, more efficient and economical to run.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow environmentally friendly?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

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.

Would installing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The rating awarded to the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 is 99.8% with a SEDBUK rating of "D".

However, because it's powered by electricity, it's penalised in the ERP ratings.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after its disposal.

Electric boilers are nearly always more efficient than their gas and oil counterparts, at around the 98% to 99% mark, in most cases. However, some electric boilers receive very low ERP scores because the electricity they draw for power is often generated by burning fossil fuels. In our opinion, this is unfair on electric boilers.

For the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600, the ERP Heat rating is "D".

If the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

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

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

The UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world, which is partly why combi boilers were introduced in the 1970s. Traditional boilers require one or more large storage tanks which they use to either heat water and keep it warm or store water intended for heating later. These tanks took up a lot of space in people's homes.

Combi boilers save space because they don't require these tanks to operate. Instead, combis draw water direct from your mains supply then instantly heat and distribute it on demand.

The biggest disadvantage in using combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity volume for heating water. While this may not be an issue in a small household, it could be for a larger household where there is higher demand for hot water. When more than one person is using the water, it is distributed between the two points, reducing the pressure and temperature at each point.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow 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 electric bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper electric bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

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

An experienced heating engineer would say that this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 Electric Flow boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 dimensions

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

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

Previously, gas and oil boilers were pretty inefficient and, in 2005, a law was passed requiring that all new gas and oil boilers must be "condensing". Condensing boilers contain a secondary heat exchanger that uses the exhaust gases created by burning gas and oil to, for example, reheat water coming back from the radiators. As electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 do not burn fuel in the home, they do not need this modification.

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

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on 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.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Until April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during normal operation.

The energy efficiency rating of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 is 99.8% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

ERP assessors are however not keen that the boiler is powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation intended to reduce energy consumption related to products, from the initial manufacturing process right through to their eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

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

Why is it so low? It's because it uses electricity - this is considered carbon-intensive since fossil fuels are burned in its generation. Operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99% so we feel this is a misleading comparison that unfairly reflects the actual performance of electric boilers.

How long is the warranty period on the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 electric Flow boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C600 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
