Intergas Rapid Plus Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new combi boiler.

Combi boilers provide hot water or heating for your home on demand. You just need to turn the tap to get hot water or switch on the radiator and you’ll feel your home warm up within minutes.

In contrast, traditional boilers required either one or two large storage tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm and the other to hold cold water for later heating. If the immersion tank was empty, it wasn’t uncommon to wait up to an hour for enough hot water to fill a bath, for example.

Combi boilers draw cold water from the mains and then heat it instantly whenever it's needed, all from one small unit.

The one disadvantage to combi boilers is that, if more than one point is in use at any one time (for example, if someone is taking a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere in the property), water pressure, temperature and volume drop to both points.

Is a Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi boiler 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 Plus Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 25 kW?

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

If you are thinking about installing a combi boiler like the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC in your home, you should consider flow rates as well as output rates. This Intergas Rapid Plus Combi boiler's flow rate is 15 L/m.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can heat up and send to your radiators, taps and showers at any one time. The more taps and showers that could be in use simultaneously or the greater the number of radiators you have, the higher the flow rate you need.

However, you should establish what the mains pressure is at your property as a combi boiler can only heat the water that comes into your home.

For example, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, your boiler can only heat and distribute hot water at a rate of 12 litres per minute even if it has a higher flow rate capacity. Typically, a power shower will require 10 litres of water 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.


Making space for the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

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

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the combi Intergas Rapid Plus TBC boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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.

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

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

Am I covered if the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi boiler breaks down?

On the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 6 years.

Intergas Rapid Plus Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC - standard, combi or system?

You may wish to consider installing the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC if you are looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

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 the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi boiler the right choice for my house or apartment?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi boiler has an output of 25 kW, so which types of property would it be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Intergas Rapid Plus Combi boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Intergas Rapid Plus Combi boiler's flow rate is 15 L/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate 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.


What is the size of the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC?

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

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

This Intergas Rapid Plus TBC is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about 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.

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

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Is this Intergas Rapid Plus TBC combi covered by a warranty?

The Intergas Rapid Plus TBC boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 6 years.
