Intergas Rapid Plus Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Intergas Rapid Plus TBC - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, then the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC is one you may wish to consider.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Is a Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Selecting the right boiler for your home means choosing 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".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to it to heat the water you need for your radiators or for when you turn on a tap, bath or shower. A higher output rate means it has more power and can heat more water.

It's important to choose an output that matches the demand for water in your home because if your boiler has too low an output, you'll often find only lukewarm water comes out of your taps or heats your radiators. If it’s too high, you’ll be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi has an output of 32 kW, so which types of property would this Intergas Rapid Plus Combi boiler be appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Intergas Rapid Plus Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Please remember too that all combi boilers draw water from the mains - they have no storage tanks. Combis heat the water from the mains on demand and then send it to wherever it's needed in the house, like a radiator, a bathroom or a kitchen.

The speed at which it can do this is called the "flow rate", which is measured in litres per minute. If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and multiple people are regularly trying to use the hot water at one time, such as in the morning or evening, you'll need a combi with a high flow rate. This Intergas Rapid Plus Combi boiler's flow rate is 18 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. If the flow rate of the local water supply is 11l/m, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m because it will never be able to use that extra capacity.

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.


What size is the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC boiler?

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Rapid Plus TBC – 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 Rapid Plus TBC 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 Rapid Plus TBC combi good for the environment?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Will choosing to install a Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

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 Plus TBC has been assigned an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

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

Intergas’s Rapid Plus TBC boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 6 years.

Intergas Rapid Plus Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC boiler a standard, combi or system model?

If you are considering installing a combi boiler in your house or flat, then the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC boiler is certainly worth investigating.

Traditionally, most boilers required you to find space in your property for one or more large storage tanks. These tanks would either keep water warm or hold it in reserve for later heating. Manufacturers originally introduced combi boilers to offer homeowners the same level of warmth and hot water without taking up as much space – remember that the UK has some of the smallest homes in the Western world.

With a combi boiler, the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is provided on demand. Water from the mains passes through your combi boiler and the technology within it instantly heats the cold water. It then distributes that hot water around your home.

The biggest drawback for combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity in volume for heating water. This means that if someone wants to use the shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point falls, resulting in a drop in water pressure.

Should I install a Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi boiler in my house or apartment?

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

This Intergas Rapid Plus Combi boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi boiler has an output level of 32 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Intergas Rapid Plus Combi boiler's flow rate is 18 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


Making space for the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

Is the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC condensing or non-condensing?

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC 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 energy efficient is the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi boiler?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Would choosing the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

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 Plus TBC has been assigned an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

What is the warranty period for the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC?

A parts and labour warranty of 6 years is included with the Intergas Intergas Rapid Plus TBC boiler.
