Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201?

If you’re looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat, then the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 is one you may wish to consider.

Traditional boilers have one or two tanks - one holds hot water to keep it warm and the other water for later heating. Because UK residential property is among some of the smallest in the world, manufacturers introduced combi boilers and the heat pumps that go in them in the 1970s to reduce the amount of space boilers needed to take up.

The hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand when you have a combi boiler. Combi boilers use technology located within the boiler to heat cold water, which it draws from the mains, and to distribute hot water where it's needed around your home.

A combi boiler, however, has the disadvantage of a maximum capacity for the amount of water it can heat. The result is that if someone uses the shower while another uses a hot water tap simultaneously, the amount of water reaching each point falls, causing water pressure to drop.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher electric bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper electric bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

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

An experienced heating engineer would say that this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Dimensions of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 boiler

The size of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 boiler is 1,050 mm tall, 90 mm wide, and 90 mm deep.

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

Gas and oil boilers burn fuel to heat the water you need for your home - electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 do not. Condensing non-electric boilers create exhaust gases which they then recycle to heat the water coming back through your pipes to your radiator, among other tasks, for greater efficiency. Because electric boilers do not create these gases when operating, they do not need the secondary heat exchanger found in condensing boilers.

Is choosing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would installing the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 was awarded an efficiency rating of 99.8% and a band rating of "D".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

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

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) aims to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 is "D".

This Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler’s ERP rating is particularly low despite the fact that the actual operating energy efficiency of electric boilers like these is generally 98% or 99% - better than even the most efficient gas or oil boiler. The reason it's marked down is that the electricity needed to power the boiler is generated by burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive - we're not sure that's a fair comparison at PlumbProud.

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 may be worth considering if you are looking for a electric Flow boiler for your house or flat.

A combi boiler could be a better choice than a standard boiler if space is at a premium in your home. Combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank.

Water is heated on demand and then distributed directly to your taps and showers. This means that combi boilers use less fuel and so reduce your electric bills.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a limited volume of water at any given time. If more than one tap or shower is in use, the hot water supply to both could be restricted and both the water pressure and temperature will drop.

Is a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher electric bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow outputs at a maximum of 12 kW, so which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler be appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 in millimetres

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 measures 1,050 mm tall, 90 mm wide, and 90 mm deep.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 – 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 U1201 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.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow a good choice 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.

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.

Will choosing a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the 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 U1201 was awarded an efficiency rating of "99.8%", equivalent to a "D" rating on the SEDBUK system.

ERP assessors are however not keen that the boiler is powered by electricity.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

An ERP rating of "D" has been awarded to the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201.

This is very low, but why? In reality, nearly every electric boiler on the market has an actual energy efficiency in operation of near 100%. However, some electric boilers have low ERP scores because the electricity generation process currently involves burning fossil fuels, which is considered carbon-intensive, and this is factored into the score - unfairly, in our opinion.

What is the length of the warranty on the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201?

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 boiler comes with a 2 year warranty for parts and labour.
