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

Is this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 boiler may be worth considering.

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.

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

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big the boiler is - it means how big its "output" is.

This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 Combi boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

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?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi Combi Compact HRE would be most 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 dimensions of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 are

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

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 environmentally friendly?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Would choosing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

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 (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18, the ERP Heat rating is "A" and the ERP Water rating is "A".

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

What type of boiler is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18?

You might want to consider the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 for your house or flat if you are looking for a combi boiler.

Combi boilers are excellent for providing hot water and heat for your radiators just when you need it. When you have a combi boiler installed in your home, you just turn on the tap and the hot water for your bath, shower, washing dishes and other activities is there when you need it. It also provides the heat you need to keep your radiators warm.

A combi boiler heats the cold water passing through it, which it draws from the mains. This newly heated water can then be distributed to whichever hot tap or radiator needs it.

In the past, boilers needed at least one storage tank to hold water that was either already heated or would be heated later. Sometimes, you'd have to wait for hot water because there was none left. In addition, storage tanks took up a lot of space and most UK homes are pretty small.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time, meaning the pressure, volume and temperature of water will decrease if more than one tap is on at the same time or if both the shower and washing machine are on together.

Would the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi be a suitable choice of 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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced heating engineer would say that this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 Combi boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

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 HRE 24/18 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 HRE 24/18 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 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.


Making space for the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18

The size of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

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

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

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

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.

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.

Will choosing a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 combi boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 HRE 24/18 was given a 93% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 24/18 boiler comes with a 7 year warranty for parts and labour.
