Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers often have up to two tanks that either store heated water or water to be heated later. Boiler manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to avoid the need for those big tanks. Combi boilers allow homeowners to benefit from the reliable central heating and hot water level they want but without having to give up so much space within their properties - remember that homes in the UK are among the smallest in the developed world.

Your taps and radiators get the hot water they need with a combi boiler. Combi boilers draw cold water direct from the mains which is then heated instantly on demand and distributed to your radiators and taps.

However, combi boilers cannot heat very large volumes of water, which is their main disadvantage. So, for example, when someone wants to take a shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap to do the dishes, water pressure and quantity to both points decreases.

Would the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 combi be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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 Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 combi's output is 24 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 Combi boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers like the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30, 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 Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 Combi boiler is 15 L/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.


How large is a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 stands at TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 non-condensing or condensing?

This Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 combi boiler environmentally friendly?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to 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.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 combi in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

The energy efficiency rating of the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 is 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

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

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). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

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 Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 breaks down?

Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 if you are looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Is a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 combi boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 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 gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 combi is 24 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

When choosing a combi boiler like the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate. Flow rates (measured in litres per minute) indicate the volume of hot water that the boiler can heat up and then distribute to your taps and radiators.

However, combi boilers draw water from the mains and this means they can only heat the amount of water that actually enters your property.

What this means is that, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, that is your boiler's effective flow rate even if it has the capacity to process 18 litres per minute. This Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 15 L/m.

To give you an idea of the flow rate you might need, a power shower typically requires around 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap requires 4-8 litres per minute.

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 a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 condensing or non-condensing?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

Is choosing the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 combi boiler environmentally friendly?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to 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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 combi be a suitable choice?

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and it 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.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 has an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

How many years' warranty does the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 combi come with?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 30 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.
