Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 is a electric Flow boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Is a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler right for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler is 9 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 have?

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

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

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 are more economical in their fuel use than non-electric boilers. This is because electric boilers do not need to recycle the warmth contained in exhaust gases created from the burning of gas and oil, therefore they do not need to be modified to be condensing.

Does the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow protect the environment?

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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured and supplied after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency is/was measured at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 has an efficiency rating of 99.8% with a SEDBUK grade 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 ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and at all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 has an ERP rating of "D".

In reality, however, nearly every electric boiler on the market in Britain has an operating energy efficiency near 100%. Electric boiler ERP scores appear low because the electricity generation process currently involves burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the score. Here at PlumbProud, we don't believe this is comparing like with like.

If the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler through PlumbProud.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

Heatrae Sadia’s Amptec C900 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler suitable for 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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your electric bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow is 9 kW, so which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 measures 1,050 mm high and 90 mm wide by a depth of 90 mm.

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

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 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.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow environmentally friendly?

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.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow be a suitable choice?

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

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

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

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

In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

The legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production to the product's actual use by the customer, through to the point of disposal.

This Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler's ERP rating is "D".

How is this so given that electric boilers are nearly always more efficient than their gas and oil counterparts, with an actual operational efficiency rating around the 98% to 99% mark, in most cases? 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.

Am I covered if my Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler breaks down?

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