Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

Heatrae Sadia’s Amptec U1101 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 U1101 electric Flow boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101

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

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

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 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 U1101 electric Flow an environmentally friendly boiler?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

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.

Will choosing a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” rating and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - 88% and 89% energy efficiency was given a “B” rating and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 was rated at 99.8% with a SEDBUK grading of "D".

The boiler is however penalised in its ERP rating for being powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

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

How can it be so low? The use of fossil fuels in generating the electricity that powers the boiler is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the ERP scores of electric boilers. This is, in our opinion, unfair because the actual operating energy efficiency of electric boilers is 98% or 99% - better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler.

What length of warranty does the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 come with?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a electric Flow boiler for your flat or house.

In many properties, combi boilers are more suitable than traditional types of boiler. Combi boilers heat water instantly on demand, which they draw directly from the mains supply, removing the need for storage tanks that can take up valuable space in your home.

A combi boiler is often the right choice for a smaller property, particularly if your home doesn't have a useable loft. As water is heated and delivered immediately rather than being kept warm for hours in an immersion tank, combi boilers reduce electric usage, thereby minimising your heating costs.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time. This means that, if two people are using different taps or showers within your home at the same time, the flow of heated water to each will be reduced, as will the water pressure and temperature.

Is a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler suitable for my house or flat?

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 U1101 electric Flow boiler is 11 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow would be smaller homes and apartments containing up to 10 radiators and providing hot water for one bathroom.


What size is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 boiler?

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

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

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 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".

How energy efficient is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler?

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 power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

If you decide to install a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at 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 U1101 was given an energy efficiency rating of 99.8% and a SEDBUK grading of "D".

The boiler is however penalised in its ERP rating for being powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan, including during the manufacturing process and when they're in actual use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage the manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

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

Many electric boilers are usually rated fairly low in ERP tests and unfairly so. Operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is actually around the 98-99% level in most cases. The reason they're marked down so severely is that the electricity used to power these boilers is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into their scores - not exactly a like-for-like comparison, in our opinion.

Does a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler come with a warranty period?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
