INTERGAS BOILERS

Intergas is a Dutch boiler manufacturer that has been operating for 50 years. Their aim is to increase energy-efficiency to lower emissions and your heating bills. 

This is largely down to their ‘two-in-one’ heat exchanger, which Intergas claim shaves a further 5% off energy bills over other condensing boilers in the U.K.

Intergas Boilers

Intergas are a mid-range boiler brand, similar to Ideal and Baxi boilers. Intergas are fairly reliable boilers but they don’t tend to score too highly in brand reviews. 

Despite Intergas’ revolutionary ‘two-in-one’ heat exchanger using less fuel and reducing the number of parts in the boiler (less parts to potentially go wrong), Intergas haven’t been able to gain a major foothold in the British boiler market, which is dominated by Worcester Bosch, Vaillant, Baxi and Ideal.

Depending on the model of Intergas boiler you choose, you can get up to ten years warranty, which gives you peace of mind when you buy an Intergas boiler that it will last, and if it doesn’t, Intergas will repair your boiler.

Intergas’ Trustpilot profile has a trust score of 4.6 out of 5, which sounds great, but some of those reviews are from engineers – who get kickbacks to install Intergas boilers. Another thing that stands out from the reviews is that a lot of them are about servicing the boiler, not about the performance of the boiler itself. These points aside, 4.6 is still a really good score and they only have 5% ‘bad’ reviews.

Which? scores Intergas at 52% with an average reliability rating and an average customer score. Engineers like that it’s easy to repair because of the simple design but there just doesn’t seem much to recommend about Intergas boilers.

It’s not that Intergas boilers are bad, it’s just that in the market space they occupy for boilers (mid-range), there are better options out there, like Ideal. 

Ideal are very reliable and have excellent customer support for about the same cost as an Intergas boiler. There is also the Worcester Bosch 2000 range, which is positioned as an entry-level boiler, but it’s still a Worcester Bosch boiler, with the Worcester Bosch customer support team behind it.

Intergas have a range combi, regular and system boilers in a choice of kW outputs that would be suited for anything from small flats to large homes with multiple bathrooms.

Intergas boiler prices vary depending on the model you choose and the kW output of the model you require. The Intergas Combi Compact Eco HRE 18kW costs £900 (without installation) from a plumbing merchant.

From the same plumbing merchant, an Ideal Logic C24 Combi Boiler (24kW) costs £720. A decent saving and the Ideal Logic has a higher kW output.

A WarmZilla boiler comes with the boiler, Gas Safe installation, system filter, system cleanse, inhibitor, wireless thermostat, up to 14 years guarantee, any flues or extension kits you may need; plus, if your condensate or gas pipes require upgrading – that’s included in your fixed price boiler quote too!

Your Intergas boiler should last you between 10-15 years, however, this depends on how well you maintain your boiler. Over time, your boiler’s efficiency will naturally decline slightly, however, annual servicing and regular maintenance will ensure that your boiler is working as efficiently as possible.

To ensure that your boiler warranty remains valid, your Intergas boiler needs to be serviced annually by a Gas Safe registered installer.

Intergas offer service appointments at a fixed price, inclusive of VAT, however, the price will depend on your location. Should parts be required, Intergas will classify the appointment as a breakdown and you will be charged an additional fee,

What are the standard checks carried out by a Gas Safe engineer?

  • Water leaks
  • External damage to the boiler
  • Condition of the electrics
  • Evidence of poor-quality installation
  • Suitability of boiler controls
  • The proximity of combustible materials to the boiler
  • Accessibility for repair and servicing
  • Signs of overheating

Your Gas Safe engineer should also check that your boiler is operating correctly, that the main components are checked, as well as the burner, heat exchanger, main injector and spark sensor probe. The gas measurements should also be taken to ensure that they are within the correct limits allowed by the manufacturer’s standards.
