Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Intergas’s Combi Compact HRE 36/40 - system, regular or combi?

You might want to consider the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 for your house or flat if you are looking for a combi boiler.

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 choose a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi boiler for 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 36/40 combi has an output of 42 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 Combi boiler in would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

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 36/40 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 36/40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 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.


What size is a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

Is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 condensing or non-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 36/40 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of 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 choosing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 was awarded an efficiency rating of "92%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims is to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce the harmful gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP gradings for the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new combi boiler.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Should I choose a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi boiler 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 36/40 combi boiler is 42 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

When choosing a combi boiler for your home, you need to think about "flow rates" as well as output rates. This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

This indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can heat then distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the higher the flow rate you will require.

However, all combi boilers like the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 draw water directly from the mains and heat it instantly.

This means that they can only heat and distribute water at the rate it enters the property (the "mains pressure" rate). For example, if your mains pressure is 11 litres per minute, this will be the highest flow rate you can achieve even if your boiler's flow rate is 17l/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.


Dimensions of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 boiler

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Combi Compact HRE 36/40 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 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.

How does the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi rate environmentally?

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.

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will choosing a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the 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 36/40 was given an efficiency rating of 92% 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 36/40 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How many years' warranty does the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi come with?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
