Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 might be an option for you to consider.

The UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world, which is partly why combi boilers were introduced in the 1970s. Traditional boilers require one or more large storage tanks which they use to either heat water and keep it warm or store water intended for heating later. These tanks took up a lot of space in people's homes.

Combi boilers save space because they don't require these tanks to operate. Instead, combis draw water direct from your mains supply then instantly heat and distribute it on demand.

The biggest disadvantage in using combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity volume for heating water. While this may not be an issue in a small household, it could be for a larger household where there is higher demand for hot water. When more than one person is using the water, it is distributed between the two points, reducing the pressure and temperature at each point.

Is a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi outputs at a maximum of 24 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With all combi boilers, the "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) is as important a consideration as output rate when choosing which model to go for. This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 11 L/m.

Like all combi boilers, the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, the water in the mains pipe that feeds your boilers has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m. So if you choose a combi with a flow rate of 14l/m but local water pressure is equivalent to 11l/m, your boiler will actually operate at 11l/m - below its capacity.

In addition, if different family members want hot water at the same time (like for regular morning and evening showers) and your boiler has to provide hot water to your radiators at the same time, a combi boiler may not be suitable.

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 HRE 28/24?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 non-condensing or condensing?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi rated as environmentally friendly?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

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.

Would choosing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The aim of the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 breaks down?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 boiler comes with a 7 year warranty for parts and labour.

Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is a gas combi boiler.

In older British homes, traditional boilers required you to find room for one or more storage tanks. One tank would keep hot water warm and the other stored cold water for later heating. Manufacturers introduced combi boilers to the UK in the 1970s so that homeowners could get the warmth and hot water they needed without having to sacrifice too much valuable space – remember that residential property in this country is among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers deliver hot water to your radiators and taps using water they draw directly from the mains supply. As mains water travels through a combi boiler, the technology within it heats the cold water instantly and on demand. The hot water is then distributed throughout your house.

Combi boilers have one drawback, however: they can only heat a certain amount of water within a given time. For example, if someone uses the shower and another person uses the hot water tap at the same time, water pressure drops because water reaches each point differently.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi boiler a suitable option 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".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi boiler is 24 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 11 L/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.
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 HRE 28/24?

The size of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Combi Compact HRE 28/24 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi a good choice for the environment?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The aim of the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 lasts for 7 years.
