Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a system boiler for your flat or house.

A system boiler needs a hot water cylinder to work but it does not require a cold water tank, unlike with heat only boilers. This makes system boilers suitable for properties that lack loft space (or have no loft at all) or where a loft conversion is planned. The cylinder stores hot water for use throughout the day and water can be distributed to more than one tap or shower simultaneously without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with).

System boilers are generally found in larger homes or properties housing large families. System boilers are easier to install than heat only boilers because their major components, including the circulation pump, are built-in and, of course, no cold water tank is needed.

With a system boiler, you use the control panel to set times for when you want the heating and hot water to be available but, unlike combi boilers, they cannot deliver hot water instantly. If you don't set your timer, you will have to wait for the water to heat up.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system's output is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that this Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System boiler would be suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Making space for the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18

The dimensions of the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

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

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

Would installing the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

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

Does a Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system boiler come with a warranty period?

The parts and labour warranty on the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 covers all repair-related costs for 7 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new system boiler.

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

Tell the boiler when you want hot water using the control panel - it draws water from the mains, heats it and keeps it warm throughout the day in the hot water cylinder. As long as you remember to tell the boiler when you want hot water, you have a big enough cylinder, and there's not an unusually high demand for water on a particular day, 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 the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 System boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What is the size of the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18?

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 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

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

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 is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 system would be a good choice for the environment.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Intergas Compact HRE SB 18 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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?

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