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 a electric Flow boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of 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.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler from the Amptec range a suitable choice 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 U1101 electric Flow is 11 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow boiler would be 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 dimensions of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 are 1,050 mm tall, 90 mm wide, and 90 mm deep.

Is this Heatrae Sadia boiler condensing or non-condensing?

The reason why the Government required all non-electric boilers to be "condensing" in 2005 was that they were much more energy-efficient. Rather than letting all exhaust gases escape into the atmosphere through the flue as older boilers did, condensing boilers use the warmth present in these gases to, for example, reheat water coming back from your radiators via a secondary heat exchanger. As electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 do not burn any fuel, they are more efficient by design, there are no gases to recycle, and so they are not covered by the 2005 law.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow environmentally friendly?

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.

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.

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.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 was given an efficiency rating of 99.8% and a SEDBUK grading of "D".

The ERP ratings of this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 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 U1101 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.

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

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 boiler.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you are considering installing a electric Flow boiler in your house or flat, then the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Traditionally, boilers needed one or more large tanks installed in your property to store their heated water or water that was to be heated later. These tanks were often too large to be practical for most homes so the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s by manufacturers to help homeowners overcome this issue.

Instead of using tanks as storage, a combi boiler heats water on demand. It draws water from the mains and heats it instantly on demand before distributing it to wherever it is needed in a property, be it your taps or radiators.

Unfortunately, combi boilers have one main disadvantage for larger properties or larger households. Because they have a maximum volume of water that can be heated on demand at any given time, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if, for example, someone is taking a shower and another person in your home wants to use a hot water tap at the same time.

Should I install a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow boiler in my house or flat?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the electric your boiler needs to work.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow outputs at a maximum of 11 kW, so which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 Electric Flow boiler as suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 in millimetres

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

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

Gas and oil boilers require a flue to siphon off exhaust gases created from the burning of the fuel they use. A "condensing" boiler reuses the warmth present in those gases for better efficiency to reheat colder water coming back from your radiators. Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 do not have a flue because they don't actually burn any fuel during their operation - they are naturally efficient and do not need any modification to achieve that efficiency.

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

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

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

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow would be a good choice for the environment.

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 U1101 was awarded an efficiency rating of 99.8% equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "D".

The ERP ratings of this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 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 U1101 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.

Is this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 electric Flow covered by a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1101 lasts for 2 years.
