Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler is worth considering if you want a electric Flow boiler.

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.

Would the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow be a suitable choice of boiler 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 C900 electric Flow is 9 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 stands at 1,050 mm tall, 90 mm wide and 90 mm deep.

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

As a large proportion of the greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere come from people's homes, the Government passed a law in 2005 requiring all manufacturers to make gas and oil boilers "condensing". What this means is that they must include a secondary heat exchanger, which recycles the warmth contained in exhaust gases normally expelled via the flue so that they're more efficient. Because electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 don't actually burn any fuel, there are no exhaust gases to recycle and they are exempt from the requirement to include a secondary heat exchange.

Is the electric Flow Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler energy efficient?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 was awarded an efficiency rating of 99.8% equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "D".

The boiler is however penalised in its ERP ratings for using electricity for power.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

Electricity generation currently involves burning fossil fuels, which is carbon-intensive. This is factored into the ERP scores of many electric boilers, although virtually every electric boiler has an energy efficiency in operation of near 100%.

The ERP rating for the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 is "D".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900?

Looking for a electric electric Flow boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler may be worth considering.

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

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow's output at 9 kW, which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 Electric Flow boiler be most appropriate 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 are the proportions of a Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 is 1,050 mm in height, 90 mm in width and 90 mm in depth.

Amptec C900 – condensing or non-condensing?

The law passed in 2005 requiring all boilers installed in the UK to be "condensing" boilers does not apply to electric boilers. This is because, unlike non-electric boilers, electric boilers do not burn either gas or oil to operate and create no hot exhaust gases that can be recycled. Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 are more efficient and economical by design.

How does the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow boiler rate environmentally?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 electric Flow at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

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

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

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Heatrae Sadia Amptec C900 are covered by a 2 year warranty.
