Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 fit into?

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 might be an option for you to consider.

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 HRE 24/18 combi be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

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

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi boiler has an output level of 18 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

Please remember too that all combi boilers draw water from the mains - they have no storage tanks. Combis heat the water from the mains on demand and then send it to wherever it's needed in the house, like a radiator, a bathroom or a kitchen.

The speed at which it can do this is called the "flow rate", which is measured in litres per minute. If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and multiple people are regularly trying to use the hot water at one time, such as in the morning or evening, you'll need a combi with a high flow rate. This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. If the flow rate of the local water supply is 11l/m, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m because it will never be able to use that extra capacity.

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 are the dimensions of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 boiler?

The dimensions of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 condensing or non-condensing?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi good for the environment?

Many homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about how they heat their homes and the impact it has on climate change and other important environmental issues.

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 installing a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi boiler in your home be a green choice? 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 HRE 24/18 has an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

ERP ratings of "A" for heat and "A" for water were assigned when testing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18.

How many years' warranty does the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi come with?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Intergas Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 boiler are covered by a 7 year warranty.

Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 - 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 HRE 24/18 is certainly one to consider.

Combi boilers have much to recommend them - not least the fact that they save a lot of space. Combination (or combi) boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to provide practical central heating and hot water distribution to smaller properties - remember that UK houses and flats tend to be among the smallest in the developed world.

Traditional boilers require one or more storage tanks to keep hot water warm and to store water for heating later. In contrast, combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a storage tank. The heated water is then distributed to your taps and radiators on demand.

While combi boilers are suitable choices for many properties, especially those without a loft, there is also a disadvantage in using them. Water is heated instantly and the volume of water that can be heated at any one time is limited. This can result in less water being sent to taps and showers if more than one is being used simultaneously. In these instances, the water pressure to both points will drop.

Is a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi the right boiler for my house or flat?

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

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi boiler has an output level of 18 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 Combi boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

You also need to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for where you live.

A combi boiler's flow rate is the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your radiators, taps and showers at the same time. This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, combi boilers like the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 draw water directly from the mains and heat it instantly.

If your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, your boiler can only heat and distribute hot water at a rate of 12 litres per minute even if it has a higher flow rate.

Combi boilers also struggle when multiple people in your home want to use hot water at the same time - for example, someone running the hot water tap in the kitchen and two people wanting to shower in separate bathrooms.

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.


The size of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 in millimetres

Intergas’s Combi Compact HRE 24/18 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 as it is a modern condensing gas boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more gas.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly gas costs and they're better for the environment.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

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 HRE 24/18 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

ERP ratings of "A" for heat and "A" for water were assigned when testing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18.

How long is the warranty period on a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.
