Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are considering installing a combi boiler in your house or flat, then the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Combi boilers provide hot water or heating for your home on demand. You just need to turn the tap to get hot water or switch on the radiator and you’ll feel your home warm up within minutes.

In contrast, traditional boilers required either one or two large storage tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm and the other to hold cold water for later heating. If the immersion tank was empty, it wasn’t uncommon to wait up to an hour for enough hot water to fill a bath, for example.

Combi boilers draw cold water from the mains and then heat it instantly whenever it's needed, all from one small unit.

The one disadvantage to combi boilers is that, if more than one point is in use at any one time (for example, if someone is taking a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere in the property), water pressure, temperature and volume drop to both points.

Should I install a Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi boiler in my home?

Whether this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi 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 Electromax 6kW combi is 6 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What size is a Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler?

The dimensions of the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW are 1,476 mm tall, 550 mm wide, and 600 mm deep.

Compact wall-mounted boilers have been the models of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. But many thousands of properties in the UK still have a floor-standing boiler like the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW. If you're interested in switching to a wall-mounted unit to create extra space in your property, bear in mind that there might be a premium on the installation work because you may need to replace your current piping.

Newer compact boilers mean lower electric bills and you could recover the cost of your investment from those savings within a few years.

It's important to note that if you are thinking about replacing your current heat only or system boiler with the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW, your hot water cylinder and/or cold water tank will also have to be removed.

If you require further help in making the right choice, please contact PlumbProud and our team will advise you on the best course of action for you.

Electromax 6kW – non-condensing or condensing?

As a large proportion of the greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere come from people's homes, the Government passed a law in 2005 requiring all manufacturers to make gas and oil boilers "condensing". What this means is that they must include a secondary heat exchanger, which recycles the warmth contained in exhaust gases normally expelled via the flue so that they're more efficient. Because electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW don't actually burn any fuel, there are no exhaust gases to recycle and they are exempt from the requirement to include a secondary heat exchange.

Does the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi protect the environment?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi in your home? Let’s look 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 Electromax 6kW 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.

However, being powered by electricity means that the ERP ratings for this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi 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 Electromax 6kW is D for heat and B 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.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Heatrae Sadia Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi Electric boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you are considering installing a combi boiler in your house or flat, then the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Combi boilers provide hot water or heating for your home on demand. You just need to turn the tap to get hot water or switch on the radiator and you’ll feel your home warm up within minutes.

Is a Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi 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 Electromax 6kW combi boiler is 6 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced heating engineer would say that this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW, you need to take the flow rate into account as well as the output rate.

Combi boilers draw water from the mains and then instantly heat that water and send it to wherever in your home it's needed. Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, are subject to the mains water pressure in your area. So, for example, if the local mains water pressure is 11 litres per minute and the flow rate of your boiler is 14 litres per minute, the boiler will not be able to process more than 11 litres per minute. The flow rate of this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler is TBCl/m.

If you live in a home with lots of radiators or bathrooms where many people want to use hot water at the same time, a combi boiler may not be able to cope. For reference, a power shower uses about 10 litres of water per minute. If two people want showers at the same time or one person wants a shower and the other hot water from a tap in the kitchen, your boiler may not have a large enough flow rate even if the local mains water pressure is high.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


The size of the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW in millimetres

The Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW measures 1,476 mm in height and has a width of 550 mm and a depth of 600 mm.

Many homeowners dislike the floor-standing boilers (like the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW) they have in their properties because they feel that they are bulky and take up too much room. If this is you and you want to replace what you have now with a compact, wall-mounted boiler, we can do this for you, although please note that you may need to pay for new piping.

The electric bill savings offered by modern boilers are significant, however, and you should be able to recoup your investment in a few years.

You will also need to remove your hot water cylinder and/or expansion tank if you replace your current heat only or system boiler with the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW.

Please get in touch with PlumbProud for information and advice on how to proceed and we'll provide you with our recommendations.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW condensing or non-condensing?

Previously, gas and oil boilers were pretty inefficient and, in 2005, a law was passed requiring that all new gas and oil boilers must be "condensing". Condensing boilers contain a secondary heat exchanger that uses the exhaust gases created by burning gas and oil to, for example, reheat water coming back from the radiators. As electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW do not burn fuel in the home, they do not need this modification.

Is choosing the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi boiler environmentally friendly?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue 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.

Would choosing the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance 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 Electromax 6kW was given an energy efficiency rating of 99.8% and a SEDBUK grading of "D".

The boiler is marked down in its ERP rating for running on electricity.

The aim of the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use, right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW from the Electromax range is "D".

Some electric boilers receive low ERP scores because the electricity they use for power is generated by burning fossil fuels, which creates high levels of carbon emissions that escape into the atmosphere. This is an unfair comparison because, in reality, virtually every electric boiler has an energy efficiency in operation of near 100%.

What warranty does the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi boiler come with?

Heatrae Sadia’s Electromax 6kW boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
