Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers are suitable for homes with a higher-than-average demand for central heating and water - for example, larger homes and larger families.

Combi boilers heat water on demand but the amount of water they can actually deliver to taps is determined by the mains water pressure, flow rate and power. System boilers instead use a hot water cylinder that stores and keeps water hot throughout the day. As long as you remember to program the times you want hot water and the cylinder still has water left in it, you should have hot water whenever you need it.

System boilers do not require a cold water storage tank either, unlike heat only boilers, meaning they're cheaper, quicker and easier to install.

Is a Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system boiler right for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system boiler is 18 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the proportions of a Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 boiler measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 condensing or non-condensing?

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

How environmentally friendly is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system?

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

In the UK, central heating systems account for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Gas boilers in particular are responsible for emissions of dangerous nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system be an environmentally-friendly choice? If so, let's look at its performance figures.

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 SB 18 is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 is rated "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 breaks down?

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.

Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you are considering installing a system boiler in your house or flat, then the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 boiler is certainly worth investigating.

System boilers are suitable for larger homes where there is a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating.

Through their use of a hot water cylinder, they provide hot water on demand during the day - as long as there's enough water left in the cylinder. Just let the boiler know when you want hot water for your radiators and taps via the programming panel and, subject to tank size and household usage, it'll be there for you.

Unlike heat only boilers, there is no requirement to find room in the attic for a cold water storage tank. System boilers are therefore quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is a Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System 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 SB 18 system is 18 kW, so which types of property is this Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System boiler appropriate for?

An experienced heating engineer would say that this Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18?

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 stands at TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Compact HRE SB 18 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system boiler environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

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.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 has an ERP rating of "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 boiler?

On the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
