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

What kind of boiler is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 - standard, combi or system?

If you are searching for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is certainly one 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.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

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 28/24 combi boiler has an output level of 24 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 11 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


How big is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24?

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

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

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

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

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.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

The energy efficiency rating of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

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

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

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

With combi boilers, there is no need to find space for large tanks around your home as the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand. Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

Should I install a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi boiler in my house or flat?

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

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi has an output of 24 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is a combi boiler, which that means that you need to take the flow rate (measured in litres per minute) into account as well as the output rate. This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 Combi boiler's flow rate is 11 L/m.

Combis draw water from the mains, instantly heating and distributing it where it's needed - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, this means that the flow rate of a boiler may effectively be capped by the flow rate of the mains water supply. For example, if your mains pressure is 12l/m, that is the maximum flow rate that your boiler can achieve even if you choose a boiler with a flow rate of 18l/m.

In addition, if your home has more than one bathroom, a high number of radiators, and more than one member of your household wants to use hot water at the same time regularly, the flow rate of both the boiler and the mains water pressure may not be high enough.

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 HRE 28/24 boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 measures TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

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

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi an energy-efficient boiler?

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

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.

Would installing a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

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 HRE 28/24 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Am I covered if my Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 combi boiler breaks down?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 28/24 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 7 years following installation.
