Intergas builds in flue gas heat recovery

Intergas boiler

Intergas launched its range of boilers onto the UK market in 2008 and, since then, more and more installers have been converting to this Dutch manufacturer. And it’s easy to understand why; its ingenious design, featuring the two-in-one heat exchanger, means the components that tend to stick, leak or let you down - like the diverter valve, valve motor, auto air vent and secondary hot water plate heat exchanger - just aren’t there. And the heat exchanger, launched in 1996, has never had a mechanical failure either, so reliability really is built-in.

Switch on to Heating System Efficiency

Historically many within the heating industry have seen September as the start of the heating season and as a result, the start of the breakdown and system failure calls. Here Richard Sharp at Xylem advises on those added extras that can make a big difference to system efficiency but also keep you front of mind with homeowners throughout the year.


In 2013, September saw temperatures across the UK peak at 30C, but then in 2014 it was the coolest September since 1994, according to the Met Office. Of course temperature is a personal thing and not everyone will want heating on at the same time, but as many installers know when the mercury truly begins to fall that’s when the flood gates traditionally open with breakdown calls and system failures.
