Intergas Rapid 32 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Rapid 32 a regular, combi or system boiler?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your flat or house? Then the Intergas Rapid 32 may be an option you should consider.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

Is the Intergas Rapid 32 combi suitable for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Intergas Rapid 32 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 27 kW?

A boiler engineer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Intergas Rapid 32 Combi boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

As well as the output rate, you need to consider "flow rate" when choosing a combi boiler.

The flow rate describes how much water a combi boiler can draw from the mains, instantly heat, and then send to your radiators. Flow rates are measured in litres per second and this Intergas Rapid 32 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

The water in your mains pipe also has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m in most parts of Britain. This means that, if you choose a combi boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m where local water pressure is 11lm, it won't actually process more water because of the slower flow rate of the mains.

In addition, larger households with more than one bathroom, multiple radiators, and where family members may want to use hot water at the same time (like morning showers) may actually need a boiler with a higher flow rate than either the boiler or the local mains pipe.

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 dimensions of the Intergas Rapid 32 are

The Intergas Rapid 32 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Intergas Rapid 32 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Intergas Rapid 32 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.

Is the combi Intergas Rapid 32 boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

If you decide to install a Intergas Rapid 32 combi in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Intergas Rapid 32 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Intergas Rapid 32 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Does the Intergas Rapid 32 combi boiler come with a warranty?

The Intergas Rapid 32 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 3 years.

Intergas Rapid 32 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Intergas Rapid 32 - regular, system or combi?

The Intergas Rapid 32 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.

Would the Intergas Rapid 32 combi boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Intergas Rapid 32 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher gas bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Intergas Rapid 32 combi outputs at a maximum of 27 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Rapid 32 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Intergas Rapid 32 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers like the Intergas Rapid 32, you need to take the flow rate into account as well as the output rate.

Combi boilers draw water from the mains and then instantly heat that water and send it to wherever in your home it's needed. Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, are subject to the mains water pressure in your area. So, for example, if the local mains water pressure is 11 litres per minute and the flow rate of your boiler is 14 litres per minute, the boiler will not be able to process more than 11 litres per minute. The flow rate of this Intergas Rapid 32 Combi boiler is 13 L/m.

If you live in a home with lots of radiators or bathrooms where many people want to use hot water at the same time, a combi boiler may not be able to cope. For reference, a power shower uses about 10 litres of water per minute. If two people want showers at the same time or one person wants a shower and the other hot water from a tap in the kitchen, your boiler may not have a large enough flow rate even if the local mains water pressure is high.

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.


How large is the Intergas Rapid 32?

The dimensions of the Intergas Rapid 32 are TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is this Intergas boiler condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Intergas Rapid 32 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 combi Intergas Rapid 32 boiler energy efficient?

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

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Is the Intergas Rapid 32 combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Intergas Rapid 32 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emitted fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Intergas Rapid 32 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How long is the warranty period on the Intergas Rapid 32 combi boiler?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 3 years on the Intergas Rapid 32 boiler to new customers.
