Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only 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 boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only's output level is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 dimensions

The size of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler good for the environment?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

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 the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) applies to all products that consume energy at any time in their lifetime, from manufacture to disposal and all points in between.

The intention of this European legislation is to encourage manufacturers to offer end users products that are better for the environment through the creation of fewer harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle.

The ERP rating for the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 is "A".

What length of warranty does the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 come with?

Intergas offers a parts and labour warranty of 7 years on the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15.

Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like instead of replacing it with a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is a Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only is 18 kW, so which types of property is this Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe engineers, the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only Compact HRE OV would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the proportions of a Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Compact HRE OV 15 – condensing or non-condensing?

This Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the heat only Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 boiler energy efficient?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British 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.

Will installing a Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 are 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.
