Intergas Rapid 25 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Rapid 25 a system, regular or combi boiler?

The Intergas Rapid 25 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a combi boiler for your flat or house.

Traditional boilers have one or more large tanks in which they store either heated water or water to be heated later. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to the market in the 1970s to enable homeowners to save space - UK residential properties are among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers don't need these tanks because they draw water directly from the mains and instantly heat it on demand thanks to the technology inside the boiler. Combi boilers then distribute this hot water to your home’s taps and radiators when needed.

The most significant disadvantage of combi boilers is that they are not ideal in larger homes where multiple people might want hot water at the same time – for example, if someone is having a shower while another wants to wash dishes in the kitchen. This is because combi boilers have a maximum volume of water that they can heat. When two people want hot water at the same time, the water temperature, pressure and volume delivered to both points drop.

Is the Intergas Rapid 25 combi boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Intergas Rapid 25 combi's output level is 25 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Rapid 25 Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced heating engineer would say that this Intergas Rapid 25 Combi boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

When choosing a combi boiler like the Intergas Rapid 25, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate. Flow rates (measured in litres per minute) indicate the volume of hot water that the boiler can heat up and then distribute to your taps and radiators.

However, combi boilers draw water from the mains and this means they can only heat the amount of water that actually enters your property.

What this means is that, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, that is your boiler's effective flow rate even if it has the capacity to process 18 litres per minute. This Intergas Rapid 25 Combi boiler's flow rate is 11 L/m.

To give you an idea of the flow rate you might need, a power shower typically requires around 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap requires 4-8 litres per minute.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


The size of the Intergas Rapid 25

The Intergas Rapid 25 has the following dimensions - TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Rapid 25 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Intergas Rapid 25.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Intergas Rapid 25 combi?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Intergas Rapid 25 combi in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

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 Rapid 25 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Intergas Rapid 25 is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

Is this Intergas Rapid 25 combi covered by a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Intergas Rapid 25 Combi boiler covers you for 3 years.

Intergas Rapid 25 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Intergas Rapid 25 - regular, system or combi?

The Intergas Rapid 25 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Is the Intergas Rapid 25 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 Rapid 25 combi is 25 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that the level of output from this Intergas Rapid 25 Combi boiler would make it a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

You'll also need to be sure to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for your home.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can distribute at any given time. This means that if you and your family are likely to be using several taps and showers simultaneously or you have a lot of radiators, you need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Intergas Rapid 25 Combi boiler's flow rate is 11 L/m.

As with all combi boilers, the Intergas Rapid 25 is only able to heat and distribute water at the rate at which it actually enters your property.

For this reason, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a very high flow rate if the flow rate in your mains pipes is lower because the extra capacity doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


Making space for the Intergas Rapid 25

The Intergas Rapid 25 stands at TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Rapid 25 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Intergas Rapid 25 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 Rapid 25 combi rated as environmentally friendly?

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

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Intergas Rapid 25 combi in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

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 Rapid 25 is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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 through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Intergas Rapid 25 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What length of warranty does the Intergas Rapid 25 come with?

The parts and labour warranty on the Intergas Rapid 25 covers all repair-related costs for 3 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
