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

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

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 may be an option you should consider.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

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

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 Compact HRE OV 15 heat only's output at 18 kW, which types of property would this Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


The dimensions of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 are

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Is the Intergas 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 Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

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 Compact HRE OV 15 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15, the ERP rating is "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 boiler comes with a 7 year warranty for parts and labour.

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

What type of boiler is Intergas’s Compact HRE OV 15 - system, regular or combi?

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 may be an option you should consider.

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 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 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 Compact HRE OV 15 heat only's output at 18 kW, which types of property would this Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

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

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 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.

Is choosing the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15, the ERP rating is "A".

What is the warranty period on a Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 heat only boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 7 years is included when you purchase the Intergas Compact HRE OV 15 boiler through PlumbProud.
