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

What type of boiler is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a combi 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 the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi boiler from the Combi Compact ECO RF range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

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

A boiler engineer would be likely to recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 Combi boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments.

In addition to output rates, you need to consider a combi boiler's flow rate when making your choice.

The flow rate of your boiler dictates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time.

However, a combi boiler like the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 can only heat and deliver water at the rate at which it actually enters your property. For this reason, you should also find out what the mains pressure to your house is before purchasing a boiler.

It's pointless spending more money on a boiler with a 17l/m flow rate if the local water pressure is 11l/m. To give you an indication of average water demand, a power shower typically requires 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap 4-8 litres. This Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/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 36?

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

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi an environmentally friendly boiler?

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.

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.

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 or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 has been given a rating of 94% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims is to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce the harmful gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP gradings for the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

Does the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi boiler come with a warranty?

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

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

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

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.

Combination or combi boilers are highly efficient and save a lot of space in your home. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap and, as a result, you don’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water tank in the roof space.

These boilers are, therefore, suitable for smaller homes and especially those without a loft. They are also cost-effective as the water is heated instantly and distributed on demand rather than being stored. Combi boilers are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and replacing an older boiler with a new combi boiler will reduce your gas bills significantly.

However, there are downsides to this type of boiler. If you take a shower while someone else is using a tap, less water will reach each point of usage at lower rates of pressure and temperatures as combi boilers can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time.

Would the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi boiler has an output of 30 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

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 36 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 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.


Where will the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 fit in my house?

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

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

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 36 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 Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 combi an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 was given an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What length of warranty does the Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Intergas Combi Compact ECO RF 36 are covered by a 10 year warranty.
