Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 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.

Would the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property 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 has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your electric bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

With the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow's output at 11 kW, which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow boiler be most appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 have?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 measures 1,050 mm tall, 90 mm wide, and 90 mm deep.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 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 electric Flow Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

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 U1101 was awarded an efficiency rating of "99.8%", equivalent to a "D" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 U1101 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.

What warranty does the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler come with?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 - combi, system or regular boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 if you are looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

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 U1101 electric Flow suitable for my house or flat?

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

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow's output level is 11 kW, so which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The dimensions of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 are

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 is 1,050 mm tall, 90 mm wide, and 90 mm deep.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 condensing or non-condensing?

There is no legal requirement in the UK for electric boilers to be condensing as there is for gas and oil boilers. This is because electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 do not burn fuel during their operation nor do they create exhaust gases that condensing boilers then extract the warmth from, for example, to heat water coming back from the radiators in a home. Electric boilers are more efficient by design than non-electric boilers.

How does the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler rate environmentally?

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 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 U1101 electric Flow be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance 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 U1101 was awarded an efficiency rating of "99.8%", equivalent to a "D" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The ERP ratings of this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow boiler are however marked down because it is powered by electricity.

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in use.

As fossil fuels generate the power used by electric boilers, some receive low ERP scores because electricity generation is carbon-intensive. This is unfair because the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - a level no oil or gas boiler has yet reached.

The ERP rating for the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 is "D".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 boiler?

Heatrae Sadia offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101.
