Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 is a gas heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers, sometimes known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, are better for homes with multiple bathrooms or larger families where members of your household may need to use hot water at the same time as each other, such as a shower in the bathroom and a hot water tap in the kitchen. This is because, unlike combi boilers, they can handle demand from more than one point at a time with no drop in water pressure, temperature and volume.

Heat only boilers use a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally installed in an airing or landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (normally stored in the loft).

You program a heat only boiler to provide you with the central heating and hot water you need at specific times of the day, such as first thing in the morning. However, if you forget to set timings and there is no water left in the hot water tank, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again.

Is a Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only the right boiler for my house or flat?

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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only is 27 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only environmentally friendly?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

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.

Would choosing the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

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 30 is "A".

Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 may be worth considering if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You can program a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) to provide hot water and heating at particular times of the day. Heat only boilers consist of a cold water tank (often housed out of sight in the loft), a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally situated in an airing or landing cupboard), and a control panel.

Regular boilers are best suited for large households with many members, at least two of whom often need hot water at the same time.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

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 30 heat only's output at 27 kW, which types of property would this Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only boiler be most appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would be likely to recommend that this Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms and would therefore be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes.


What is the size of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 measures TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Intergas boiler non-condensing or condensing?

This Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 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.

How energy efficient is the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only boiler?

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.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would choosing a Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 30 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK 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 30, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

What is the warranty period on a Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
