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

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

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Boilers traditionally required the installation of one or more large tanks around your property. These were filled with water that was either being heated or was to be heated later. British homes are among the smallest in the world so, to solve the space problem, manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to offer homeowners the warmth and hot water supply they needed while taking up much less space.

A combi boiler is designed to heat both radiators and taps on demand and at the same time. Water from the mains passes through a combi boiler and the boiler's technology instantly turns it into hot water. Your boiler then distributes the hot water throughout your home.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum water volume capacity. What this means is that, if one person is using the shower while another uses a hot tap simultaneously, less water gets to each area, resulting in a fall in water pressure at both points.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

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

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.
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 stands at TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 – condensing or non-condensing?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 is a condensing gas boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

Is the combi Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

How long is the warranty period on a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Intergas Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 boiler are covered by a 10 year warranty.

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

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

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi the right boiler for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

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

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers, you need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate. The flow rate (shown in litres per minute) measures how much water your boiler can draw from the mains which it then instantly heats and distributes to your taps and radiators.

However, a high flow rate is of little to no value if your local water pressure is low. If your local mains water pressure is 10l/m and your flow rate is 12l/m, your boiler will only be able to process 10l/m.

If you live in an area with high water pressure but your household has multiple bathrooms and/or radiators and many members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening baths or showers), it's unlikely that you'll be able to find a combi with a high enough flow rate.

As an indication, a power shower needs about 10 litres of water per minute, whereas the flow rate of this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 Combi boiler is 12 L/ml/m.

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 large is 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 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi an energy-efficient boiler?

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.

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

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 combi an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

This European legislation intends to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 24 boiler?

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