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

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

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

A combi boiler could be a better choice than a standard boiler if space is at a premium in your home. Combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank.

Water is heated on demand and then distributed directly to your taps and showers. This means that combi boilers use less fuel and so reduce your gas bills.

The main disadvantage to combi boilers is that they can only heat a limited volume of water at any given time. If more than one tap or shower is in use, the hot water supply to both could be restricted and both the water pressure and temperature will drop.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler a suitable choice for my property?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property 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 has to be powerful enough to heat all the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. Power is measured in kilowatts and the more kilowatts a boiler has available to it, the more water it can heat.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll have all the power you need and more but your gas bills will be much higher. If it's too low, you'll often find that the water coming out of your taps and fed into your radiators is only lukewarm.

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 heating engineer would likely recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 Combi boiler is suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

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 36/30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

Like all combi boilers, the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 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.


Making space for the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Intergas boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 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 choosing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler environmentally friendly?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would installing a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 was rated at 93% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30, the ERP rating is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

What warranty does the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler come with?

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

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

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

You may wish to consider installing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 if you are looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

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

Whether this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi is 30 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 Combi boiler is suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

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 size of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the 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.

Is choosing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi boiler environmentally friendly?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30 combi in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

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 (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.

What is the length of the warranty on the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/30?

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