Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 - regular, system or combi?

You may wish to consider installing the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 if you are looking for a heat only 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 regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard 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 temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish 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 and not choose 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.

Would the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting 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".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only is 23 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with up to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


The size of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 boiler measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

Compact HRE OV 24 – 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 Compact HRE OV 24.

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 the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only boiler good for the environment?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would choosing the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

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 Compact HRE OV 24 was awarded an efficiency rating of "93%", 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 to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 is "A".

Is there a warranty on the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only boiler if it breaks down?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 7 years with the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 boiler.

Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 is a gas heat only boiler.

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 24 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right "size". And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only boiler has an output level of 23 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend that this Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only boiler would be suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How large is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 stands at TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Intergas Compact HRE OV gas Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

How does the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only rate environmentally?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

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.

Will choosing a Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 24 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Intergas Compact HRE OV 24, the ERP Heat rating is "A".
