The Intergas HRE OV Regular is an ideal replacement for existing open vent boilers.
Designed to supply your home with warmth and comfort, the Intergas HRE OV Regular is a fully modulating boiler that makes sure no valuable energy is wasted. It comes in three heat outputs to suit most homes and is best suited to properties with an existing open vent boiler or a traditional heating system. By using this boiler, you can save money on your energy bills, limit your carbon footprint and do your bit for the environment.
How Much Does this Boiler Cost?
It will depend on whether you require the 18kW, 23kW or 27kW model and the highest output model tends to be the most expensive of the three. What we can tell you is that the Intergas HRE OV Regular typically costs between £800 and £950, including VAT. These prices don’t include the fitting cost, so you need to shop around as installation prices can vary from £500 to £1,500. The easiest way to compare prices and find the best deal is to get a fixed-priced quote from a range of local and national installers.
How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?
The Intergas HRE OV is a regular boiler, also known as a conventional or heat only boiler. This type of boiler requires a feed and expansion tank in the loft, as well as a water storage cylinder to provide both heating and hot water. The boiler is therefore perfect for homes with an existing regular boiler and these additional components. If you don’t currently own this type of boiler, a combi or system boiler will probably be a better option for your home.
If you’re interested in the Intergas HRE OV Regular, you must figure out whether you need the 18kW, 23kW or 27kW model.
