Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal EvoMax 150 a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, then the Ideal EvoMax 150 is one you may wish to consider.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would say that this Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Ideal EvoMax 150 dimensions

Ideal’s EvoMax 150 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 150 non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal EvoMax 150 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly suggest that you choose either this model or a recently released model if at all possible.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created by the burning of gas to warm up the water coming back into your boiler - for example, from your radiators.

Condensing boilers cost less to run (lower gas bills) and are better for the environment.

Is the heat only Ideal EvoMax 150 boiler energy efficient?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous atmospheric levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's biggest cities and, overall, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by our domestic central heating systems.

Would choosing a Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Ideal EvoMax 150 was awarded an efficiency rating of 96.7% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

If the Ideal EvoMax 150 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Ideal EvoMax 150 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.

Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal EvoMax 150 - a regular, combi or system 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 standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional 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 water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want 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 instead of replacing it with 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.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler has an output rate of 150 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only boiler is appropriate for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Ideal EvoMax 150 size

Ideal’s EvoMax 150 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 150 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Ideal EvoMax 150 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only a good choice for the environment?

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Ideal EvoMax 150 was awarded an efficiency rating of 96.7% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

How many years' warranty does the Ideal EvoMax 150 heat only come with?

The Ideal EvoMax 150 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
