Intergas Xtreme 36 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Intergas Xtreme 36 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Intergas Xtreme 36.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is the Intergas Xtreme 36 combi boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

Whether this Intergas Xtreme 36 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

Measured in kilowatts, a boiler's output level is an indication of the amount of power it has available to it to heat the water coming from your taps and for warming your radiators. The greater the output level, the more water it can heat.

If you choose a boiler whose output level is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. If you choose a boiler whose level is too high, you'll be paying higher gas bills than you need to for years to come.

The output of the Intergas Xtreme 36 combi is 27 kW, so which types of property is this Intergas Xtreme 36 Combi boiler appropriate for?

A heating engineer would recommend that the Intergas Xtreme 36 combi boiler would be a suitable installation option for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

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 Xtreme 36 Combi boiler's flow rate is 20 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.


Dimensions of the Intergas Xtreme 36 boiler

The size of the Intergas Xtreme 36 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Xtreme 36 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Intergas Xtreme 36.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the Intergas Xtreme 36 combi an energy-efficient boiler?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to 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.

Will installing a Intergas Xtreme 36 combi be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Intergas Xtreme 36 has been given a rating of 93% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Intergas Xtreme 36 is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Is this Intergas Xtreme 36 combi covered by a warranty?

The Intergas Xtreme 36 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 7 years.

Intergas Xtreme 36 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Intergas Xtreme 36 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you are searching for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Intergas Xtreme 36 is certainly one to consider.

Traditional boilers have one or two tanks - one holds hot water to keep it warm and the other water for later heating. Because UK residential property is among some of the smallest in the world, manufacturers introduced combi boilers and the heat pumps that go in them in the 1970s to reduce the amount of space boilers needed to take up.

The hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand when you have a combi boiler. Combi boilers use technology located within the boiler to heat cold water, which it draws from the mains, and to distribute hot water where it's needed around your home.

A combi boiler, however, has the disadvantage of a maximum capacity for the amount of water it can heat. The result is that if someone uses the shower while another uses a hot water tap simultaneously, the amount of water reaching each point falls, causing water pressure to drop.

Is the Intergas Xtreme 36 combi boiler from the Xtreme range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Intergas Xtreme 36 combi is 27 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Intergas Xtreme 36 Combi boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.

In addition to output rates, you need to consider a combi boiler's flow rate when making your choice.

The flow rate of your boiler dictates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time.

However, a combi boiler like the Intergas Xtreme 36 can only heat and deliver water at the rate at which it actually enters your property. For this reason, you should also find out what the mains pressure to your house is before purchasing a boiler.

It's pointless spending more money on a boiler with a 17l/m flow rate if the local water pressure is 11l/m. To give you an indication of average water demand, a power shower typically requires 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap 4-8 litres. This Intergas Xtreme 36 Combi boiler's flow rate is 20 L/m.

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 Xtreme 36 boiler?

The Intergas Xtreme 36 measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Is the Intergas Xtreme 36 non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Intergas Xtreme 36 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Intergas Xtreme 36 combi environmentally friendly?

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.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

If you decide to install a Intergas Xtreme 36 combi in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Intergas Xtreme 36 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade 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 Xtreme 36 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Is this Intergas Xtreme 36 combi covered by a warranty?

The Intergas Xtreme 36 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 7 years.
