Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

Looking for a electric electric Flow boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 boiler may be worth considering.

Traditional boilers have one or more large tanks in which they store either heated water or water to be heated later. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to the market in the 1970s to enable homeowners to save space - UK residential properties are among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers don't need these tanks because they draw water directly from the mains and instantly heat it on demand thanks to the technology inside the boiler. Combi boilers then distribute this hot water to your home’s taps and radiators when needed.

The most significant disadvantage of combi boilers is that they are not ideal in larger homes where multiple people might want hot water at the same time – for example, if someone is having a shower while another wants to wash dishes in the kitchen. This is because combi boilers have a maximum volume of water that they can heat. When two people want hot water at the same time, the water temperature, pressure and volume delivered to both points drop.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

Whether this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for electric than you need to.

The output of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler is 12 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 in millimetres

The dimensions of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 are 1,050 mm [H] x 90 mm [W] x 90 mm [D].

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 non-condensing or condensing?

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 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".

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler good for the environment?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Will installing a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

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 U1201 has an efficiency rating of 99.8% with a SEDBUK grade of "D".

However, being powered by electricity means that the ERP ratings for this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler are lower.

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases, with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The ERP rating for the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 is D for heat and TBC for hot water production.

This may seem surprisingly low, especially since the actual operational energy efficiency for electric boilers is generally around the 98-99% level. The reason for this is that the electricity used by these boilers is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive - in our opinion, unfairly.

Does a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler come with a warranty period?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 boiler.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 - combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are searching for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 is certainly one to consider.

Traditional boilers have one or more large tanks in which they store either heated water or water to be heated later. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to the market in the 1970s to enable homeowners to save space - UK residential properties are among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers don't need these tanks because they draw water directly from the mains and instantly heat it on demand thanks to the technology inside the boiler. Combi boilers then distribute this hot water to your home’s taps and radiators when needed.

The most significant disadvantage of combi boilers is that they are not ideal in larger homes where multiple people might want hot water at the same time – for example, if someone is having a shower while another wants to wash dishes in the kitchen. This is because combi boilers have a maximum volume of water that they can heat. When two people want hot water at the same time, the water temperature, pressure and volume delivered to both points drop.

Would the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for electric than you need to.

The output of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow is 12 kW, so which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would suggest that the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 have?

Heatrae Sadia’s Amptec U1201 is 1,050 mm tall, 90 mm wide, and 90 mm deep.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

Condensing oil and gas boilers use the exhaust gases created in the production of heat to reheat water, for example, coming back from your radiators. As electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 don't create exhaust gases during their operation, there is no need to include a secondary heat exchanger to perform these tasks as they are naturally more efficient.

How does the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 99.8% with a SEDBUK rating of "D".

But because it's powered by electricity, it's penalised in its ERP ratings.

The Energy Related Products Directive's intention is to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201’s ERP rate is "D".

Why is it so low despite the fact that, operationally, the energy efficiency of electric boilers is nearly always 98% or 99%? It's because the electricity these boilers draw for power is often generated by burning fossil fuels, which ERP assessors class as carbon-intensive. In our opinion, this is not comparing like for like.

What warranty does the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler come with?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
