Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi Electric boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW - regular, system or combi?

The Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a combi boiler for your flat or house.

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 Electromax 6kW combi boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

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

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi's output is 6 kW, so which types of property would this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

Please remember too that all combi boilers draw water from the mains - they have no storage tanks. Combis heat the water from the mains on demand and then send it to wherever it's needed in the house, like a radiator, a bathroom or a kitchen.

The speed at which it can do this is called the "flow rate", which is measured in litres per minute. If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and multiple people are regularly trying to use the hot water at one time, such as in the morning or evening, you'll need a combi with a high flow rate. This Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. If the flow rate of the local water supply is 11l/m, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m because it will never be able to use that extra capacity.

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.


How big is the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW?

The Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW is 1,476 mm tall, 550 mm wide, and 600 mm deep in size.

If you want to replace your floor-standing boiler with a more compact, wall-mounted model, this will give you and your family more space. Hundreds of thousands of homes in the UK still use floor-standing boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW, but wall-mounted models have been the most popular choice for homeowners over the last two decades. We can replace your floor-mounted unit with a wall-mounted unit, but please be aware that the cost of installation will be higher if we need to replace your current piping.

However, you can recoup this investment in full over a few years with the savings you make on your electric bills.

If you are considering replacing your current heat only or system boiler with the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW, please be aware that this will involve removing your hot water cylinder and/or expansion tank.

For guidance and further information, please contact the team at PlumbProud who will be happy to help you make the right choice.

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

Electric boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW are more economical in their fuel use than non-electric boilers. This is because electric boilers do not need to recycle the warmth contained in exhaust gases created from the burning of gas and oil, therefore they do not need to be modified to be condensing.

How energy efficient is the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi boiler?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” rating and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - 88% and 89% energy efficiency was given a “B” rating and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW was rated at 99.8% with a SEDBUK grading of "D".

The ERP ratings of this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler are however marked down because it is powered by electricity.

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in use.

As fossil fuels generate the power used by electric boilers, some receive low ERP scores because electricity generation is carbon-intensive. This is unfair because the actual operational energy efficiency of most electric boilers is either 98% or 99% - a level no oil or gas boiler has yet reached.

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

What length of warranty does the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW come with?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler to new customers.

Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi Electric boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW might be an option for you to consider.

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.

When more than one person is using the water, it is distributed between the two points, reducing the pressure and temperature at each point.

Would the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.

Homeowners considering fitting a combi boiler to their home need to consider flow rates as well as output rates.

The flow rate is a measurement of the volume of water a combi can instantly heat and send to the taps and radiators around your home. The higher the likely demand for hot water in your home, the higher your combi's flow rate should be. This Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi boiler's flow rate is TBCl/m.

Unlike heat only or system boilers, combi boilers don't store hot water in a tank for later use - instead, they draw it directly from the mains. This means that the volume of water your boiler can actually process is constrained by the flow rate of water in the mains pipe.

So, if you choose a combi boiler with a 15l/m flow rate but the flow rate in your mains pipe is 12l/m, the combi boiler's working flow rate is also 12l/m.

Combi boilers are also not always the correct choice for homes with multiple bathrooms, a high number of radiators, or where more than one family member will want to use hot water at the same time.

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 dimensions of the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW are 1,476 mm [H] x 550 mm [W] x 600 mm [D].

Despite the increase in demand for compact, wall-mounted boilers over the last 20 years, hundreds of thousands of homes still have large floor-standing boilers like the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW. If you would like a wall-mounted boiler to replace your existing floor-standing unit to free up space, we can carry out this installation for you but please bear in mind that we may also need to replace your existing pipework, which will add extra costs to the work.

You should however be able to repay your investment in full within a few years with the savings you make on your electric bills.

It is also important to keep in mind that if you plan to replace an existing heat only or system boiler with the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW, your hot water cylinder and/or expansion tank will need to be removed.

Feel free to contact PlumbProud for information and guidance and we'll be happy to provide it.

Electromax 6kW – condensing or non-condensing?

Because electric boilers operate differently from non-electric boilers, they are not covered by the law which requires all boilers to be "condensing". That's because they don't actually burn fuel in your home. Condensing gas and oil boilers recycle the warmth present in exhaust gases created through the burning of fuel to reheat water coming back from radiators.

Is the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi rated as environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

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 a Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW combi help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

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 Electromax 6kW was awarded an efficiency rating of "99.8%", equivalent to a "D" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The ERP ratings of this Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW Combi 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 Electromax 6kW 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.

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler?

The Heatrae Sadia Electromax 6kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
