Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you want a electric Flow boiler for your flat or house, the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 might be an option for you to consider.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

Is a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow a suitable choice 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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your electric bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

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

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 - size in millimetres

The Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 measures 1,050 mm high and 90 mm wide by a depth of 90 mm.

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

Gas and electric boilers create exhaust gases - condensing boilers capture and recycle these gases to, for example, reheat water coming back from your radiators. As electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 do not create exhaust gases during their operation, they do not need a secondary heat exchanger which all condensing boilers must contain - they are more efficient by design.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

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

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The rating awarded to the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 is 99.8% with a SEDBUK rating of "D".

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.

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

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow boiler covers you for 2 years.

Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 Electric Flow Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a electric electric Flow boiler for your flat or house? Then the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 may be an option you should consider.

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 a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow boiler suitable 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?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 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 U1201 in millimetres

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

Amptec U1201 – non-condensing or 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 U1201 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 U1201 electric Flow boiler environmentally friendly?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

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.

Will choosing to install a Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 electric Flow in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Until April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during normal operation.

The energy efficiency rating of the Heatrae Sadia Amptec U1201 is 99.8% with a SEDBUK band rating of "D".

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.
