Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 is a gas combi boiler.

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 the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi boiler from the Combi Compact ECO RF range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 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 36 combi is 30 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

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 Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/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.


What size is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

Is this Intergas boiler condensing or non-condensing?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi boiler good for the environment?

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.

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.

Would installing a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in 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 Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 was given a 94% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use, right through to final disposal.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What is the length of the warranty on the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 10 years after installation.

Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 a system, regular or combi boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Is a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 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 gas than you need to.

The output of the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi boiler is 30 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 Combi boiler is most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With combi boilers like the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36, 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 36 Combi boiler is 13 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.


What is the size of the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36's dimensions are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Is this Intergas boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF gas Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

How environmentally friendly is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Will choosing to install a Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 was awarded an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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 36 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 covers all repair-related costs for 10 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
