The latest boiler brand breaking the UK market at the moment is Intergas, a dutch boiler manufacturing company that have actually been around since 1970's.
With their growing popularity within the UK, and certainly in the Cheshire and Shropshire areas we service, we have written up some of the Pros and Cons of the Intergas boiler range.
What are the Pros?
Along with many of the popular boiler choices such as Worcester Bosch and Vaillant, they offer up to 10 years warranty, dependant on the boiler appliance you choose to purchase.
Intergas have their own dedicated app called InTouch, allowing customers to use their phone as a smart-thermostat.
They have a two-in-one heat exchanger, giving you a more efficient boiler as it doesn't need as much fuel to generate heat output as other boiler brands may do.
Their innovative design means that Intergas have reduced the need for components such as a secondary domestic hot water plate heat exchanger, diverter valve and auto-air vent. Less boiler parts = less parts to potentially fail
Compared to some of the leading brands, they are considerably cheaper in price by about £400 on average.
So, what are the Cons?
So far, the Intergas boilers have had mixed reviews, maintaining quite a neutral reputation so far. Some review examples can be seen here
The InTouch mobile app only seems to be compatible with their Eco RF models from 2014 up, which is the more pricey appliance in their range.
Intergas do state their InTouch technology can work with any thermostat working with the openthem protocol, however they recommend the Honeywell Round T87M2018 for optimal use. Potentially an issue if you are using one of the other smart-thermostat devices on the market.
In our opinion:
If you're looking for the technology and quality of a Worcester Bosch or Vaillant boiler, but your budget doesn't quite stretch that far, Intergas are definitely a cheaper option and a worthy competitor to the boiler brand giants.
