Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40?

You might want to consider the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 for your house or flat if you are looking for a system boiler.

System boilers, like regular boilers, require a hot water cylinder (usually placed in a landing or airing cupboard) to work but they don’t require a separate cold water tank. This makes installation quicker and easier and, for homeowners with little loft space or who are considering a loft conversion, they're a more suitable choice.

System boilers don't need separate water tanks because they contain built-in circulating pumps that perform the same task. Just like heat only boilers, they require you to program in the times when you want heating and hot water to be available - they don't offer instant hot water like combi boilers. The cylinders keep whatever water they contain warm, although, if there is no hot water in the tank, you will have to wait up to an hour before hot water will come through your taps.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 system boiler a suitable option 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 - 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 SB 40 system boiler has an output level of 42 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 System boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What is the size of the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40?

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 boiler measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 system rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Will choosing a Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 system boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 was given a 92% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading 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 SB 40 is "A".

Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

You may wish to consider installing the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

Is a Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 40 system is 42 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 System boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is a Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 boiler?

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 condensing or non-condensing?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 is a condensing gas boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

Is the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 system boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing a Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 system boiler in your home be a green choice? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 was rated at 92% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 is "TBC".

Does the Intergas Compact HRE SB 40 system boiler come with a warranty?

Intergas’s Compact HRE SB 40 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
