Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you are searching for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 is certainly one to consider.

In older British homes, traditional boilers required you to find room for one or more storage tanks. One tank would keep hot water warm and the other stored cold water for later heating. Manufacturers introduced combi boilers to the UK in the 1970s so that homeowners could get the warmth and hot water they needed without having to sacrifice too much valuable space – remember that residential property in this country is among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers deliver hot water to your radiators and taps using water they draw directly from the mains supply. As mains water travels through a combi boiler, the technology within it heats the cold water instantly and on demand. The hot water is then distributed throughout your house.

Combi boilers have one drawback, however: they can only heat a certain amount of water within a given time. For example, if someone uses the shower and another person uses the hot water tap at the same time, water pressure drops because water reaches each point differently.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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 gas than you need to.

The output of the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi Combi Compact ECO RF would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

Please remember to consider "flow rates" as well when choosing your new boiler. All combi boilers including the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 draw water from the mains.

Each combi boiler has its own flow rate (measured in litres per minute) - this tells you how much water it can heat and distribute to your home’s taps and radiators straight from the mains. This Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

There is no benefit to you in choosing a combi with a high flow rate if your mains pressure is low - save money by buying a boiler whose flow rate is equal to or slightly more than the pressure in your water pipes.

In addition, if you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home or you have a large household that often uses lots of hot water at the same time, like for regular morning and evening showers, a combi boiler may not be suitable.

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.


Making space for the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24, the ERP rating is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

Is this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi covered by a warranty?

Intergas offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years on the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24.

Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a combi boiler for your flat or house.

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 Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi is 18 kW, so which types of property is this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler appropriate for?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

As well as the output rate, you need to consider "flow rate" when choosing a combi boiler.

The flow rate describes how much water a combi boiler can draw from the mains, instantly heat, and then send to your radiators. Flow rates are measured in litres per second and this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

The water in your mains pipe also has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m in most parts of Britain. This means that, if you choose a combi boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m where local water pressure is 11lm, it won't actually process more water because of the slower flow rate of the mains.

In addition, larger households with more than one bathroom, multiple radiators, and where family members may want to use hot water at the same time (like morning showers) may actually need a boiler with a higher flow rate than either the boiler or the local mains pipe.

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 the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 occupies a space of TBC mm high by TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi 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.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured 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 with an energy efficiency of 88% or 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 Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 has an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Am I covered if the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi boiler breaks down?

On the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.
