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?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

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 36/40 combi boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 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 36/40 combi is 42 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

With combi boilers, flow rates are as important a consideration as output rates.

All combi boilers draw water from the mains. They then heat this water instantly whenever it's needed and distribute it to your radiators and taps.

A boiler's "flow rate" describes how much water a boiler can draw from the mains at any one time, which it then heats and sends around your home (measured in litres per minute). This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

If your home has a large number of radiators, a lot of bathrooms, or multiple people who wish to use the hot water at the same time, your combi boiler may not be able to draw as much water from the mains as it needs to serve everyone, regardless of how high the flow rate is.

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.


The size of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40

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

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

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

How energy efficient is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi?

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.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Would choosing a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 was awarded an efficiency rating of 92% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

ERP ratings of "A" for heat and "A" for water were assigned when testing the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40.

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

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 7 years following installation.

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

Which category of boiler does the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 fit into?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 boiler may be worth considering.

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 a Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi the right boiler for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 42 kW?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

If you are thinking about installing a combi boiler like the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 in your home, you should consider flow rates as well as output rates. This Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can heat up and send to your radiators, taps and showers at any one time. The more taps and showers that could be in use simultaneously or the greater the number of radiators you have, the higher the flow rate you need.

However, you should establish what the mains pressure is at your property as a combi boiler can only heat the water that comes into your home.

For example, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, your boiler can only heat and distribute hot water at a rate of 12 litres per minute even if it has a higher flow rate capacity. Typically, a power shower will require 10 litres of water per minute.

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.


The size of the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 in millimetres

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep in size.

Intergas 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 environmentally friendly is the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi?

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 Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi be a suitable choice?

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 Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce the harmful gas emissions associated with the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 has an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

How long is the warranty period on the Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 combi boiler?

The Intergas Combi Compact HRE 36/40 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
