Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

You might want to consider the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 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.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi's output at 30 kW, which types of property would this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the level of output from this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 Combi boiler would make it a suitable installation option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With combi boilers like the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30, you need to take the flow rate into account as well as the output rate.

Combi boilers draw water from the mains and then instantly heat that water and send it to wherever in your home it's needed. Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, are subject to the mains water pressure in your area. So, for example, if the local mains water pressure is 11 litres per minute and the flow rate of your boiler is 14 litres per minute, the boiler will not be able to process more than 11 litres per minute. The flow rate of this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 Combi boiler is 13 L/m.

If you live in a home with lots of radiators or bathrooms where many people want to use hot water at the same time, a combi boiler may not be able to cope. For reference, a power shower uses about 10 litres of water per minute. If two people want showers at the same time or one person wants a shower and the other hot water from a tap in the kitchen, your boiler may not have a large enough flow rate even if the local mains water pressure is high.

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 proportions of a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 measures TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Intergas boiler non-condensing or condensing?

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 HRE 36/30 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.

Does the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi protect the environment?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would choosing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 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 36/30 was given an efficiency rating of 93% 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 36/30 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long is the warranty period on the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler?

On the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.

Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30.

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 a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 HRE 36/30 combi is 30 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

Most experienced heating engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler in would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

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 36/30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 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 are the dimensions of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 boiler?

The dimensions of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 are TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

How energy efficient is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

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.

Would choosing a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from the initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 boiler comes with a 7 year warranty for parts and labour.
