Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal EvoMax 150 - combi, system or regular boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Ideal EvoMax 150 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Should I install a Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler in my home?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big it is - it means how big its "output" is.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only's output is 150 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

To most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers, the Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only EvoMax would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Ideal EvoMax 150?

The Ideal EvoMax 150 stands at TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

EvoMax 150 – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Ideal EvoMax 150 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

How does the Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler rate environmentally?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

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.

If you decide to install a Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Ideal EvoMax 150 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 96.7% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

What length of warranty does the Ideal EvoMax 150 come with?

The parts and labour warranty on the Ideal EvoMax 150 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.

Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Ideal EvoMax 150 - regular, system or combi?

You may wish to consider installing the Ideal EvoMax 150 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, sometimes known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, are better for homes with multiple bathrooms or larger families where members of your household may need to use hot water at the same time as each other, such as a shower in the bathroom and a hot water tap in the kitchen. This is because, unlike combi boilers, they can handle demand from more than one point at a time with no drop in water pressure, temperature and volume.

Heat only boilers use a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (normally installed in an airing or landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (normally stored in the loft).

You program a heat only boiler to provide you with the central heating and hot water you need at specific times of the day, such as first thing in the morning. However, if you forget to set timings and there is no water left in the hot water tank, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only outputs at a maximum of 150 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the most suitable type of property for this Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes containing 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Ideal EvoMax 150

The size of the Ideal EvoMax 150 boiler is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 150 condensing or non-condensing?

The Ideal EvoMax 150 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

More and more homeowners are aware of the importance of how we heat our homes and its impact on climate change and other environmental issues.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Will installing a Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

By law, boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" and work at a 92% minimum efficiency. Before April 2018, a minimum of 88% energy efficiency needed to be achieved (88/89% = SEDBUK "B" and 90% = SEDBUK "A").

Following official testing, the Ideal EvoMax 150 was given an efficiency rating of 96.7% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

Energy efficiency is a measure of how much energy is used and how much is wasted when a boiler is operating.

Does a Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

The Ideal EvoMax 150 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
