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

Is this Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 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 30 may be an option you should consider.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which 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.

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

Whether this Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only 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 Compact HRE OV 30 heat only is 27 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 boiler?

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

Is this Intergas boiler non-condensing or condensing?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

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

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.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Will choosing a Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 has been given a rating of 93% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

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

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

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 boiler may be worth considering.

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 a Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only a suitable choice 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 30 heat only is 27 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 dimensions

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

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

Condensing boilers like the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

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

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.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would choosing the Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

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 Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan - this includes during the manufacturing process and when they're in use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 has an ERP Heat rating of "A".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE OV 30 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.
