Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Heatrae Sadia’s Amptec C900 - system, regular or combi?

If you’re looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900.

Combi boilers provide hot water or heating for your home on demand. You just need to turn the tap to get hot water or switch on the radiator and you’ll feel your home warm up within minutes.

In contrast, traditional boilers required either one or two large storage tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm and the other to hold cold water for later heating. If the immersion tank was empty, it wasn’t uncommon to wait up to an hour for enough hot water to fill a bath, for example.

Combi boilers draw cold water from the mains and then heat it instantly whenever it's needed, all from one small unit.

The one disadvantage to combi boilers is that, if more than one point is in use at any one time (for example, if someone is taking a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere in the property), water pressure, temperature and volume drop to both points.

Is a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher electric bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow outputs at a maximum of 9 kW, so which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The dimensions of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 are

The measurements of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 are 1,050 mm by 90 mm by 90 mm.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 non-condensing or condensing?

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 don't need to be "condensing", unlike gas and oil boilers. That's because, unlike gas and oil boilers, electric boilers do not burn any fuel which creates still-warm exhaust gases that condensing boilers then use to, among other tasks, heat water coming back from your radiators. They are, by design, more efficient in operation than non-electric boilers and they're not covered by the 2005 law requiring all boilers to be "condensing".

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler environmentally friendly?

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

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 C900 is 99.8% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

The ERP ratings of this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler are however marked down because it's powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 has been graded "D" by ERP assessors.

Some electric boilers receive lower ERP scores because of the carbon emissions created by the burning of fossil fuels to generate the electricity they use for power. This is unfair because the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - a level that no oil or gas boiler has yet reached.

What length of warranty does the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 come with?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler to new customers.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

If you are considering installing a electric Flow boiler in your house or flat, then the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Traditional boilers often have up to two tanks that either store heated water or water to be heated later. Boiler manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to avoid the need for those big tanks. Combi boilers allow homeowners to benefit from the reliable central heating and hot water level they want but without having to give up so much space within their properties - remember that homes in the UK are among the smallest in the developed world.

Your taps and radiators get the hot water they need with a combi boiler. Combi boilers draw cold water direct from the mains which is then heated instantly on demand and distributed to your radiators and taps.

However, combi boilers cannot heat very large volumes of water, which is their main disadvantage. So, for example, when someone wants to take a shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap to do the dishes, water pressure and quantity to both points decreases.

Is a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler suitable 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 - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for electric than is necessary.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler has an output level of 9 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


Where will the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 fit in my house?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler is 1,050 mm high, 90 mm wide, and 90 mm deep.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 non-condensing or condensing?

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 don't need to be "condensing", unlike gas and oil boilers. That's because, unlike gas and oil boilers, electric boilers do not burn any fuel which creates still-warm exhaust gases that condensing boilers then use to, among other tasks, heat water coming back from your radiators. They are, by design, more efficient in operation than non-electric boilers and they're not covered by the 2005 law requiring all boilers to be "condensing".

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler good for the environment?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing to install a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for all boilers manufactured in and supplied to the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 was given an energy efficiency rating of 99.8% and a SEDBUK grading of "D".

However, being powered by electricity means that the ERP ratings for this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler are lower.

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases, with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The ERP rating for the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 is D for heat and TBC for hot water production.

This may seem surprisingly low, especially since the actual operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is generally around the 98-99% level. The reason for this is that the electricity used by these boilers is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive - in our opinion, unfairly.

What is the warranty period on a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler?

Heatrae Sadia’s Amptec C900 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
