Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal EvoMax 60 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

Ideal’s EvoMax 60 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers) need both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to work. The hot water cylinder heats and keeps warm the water you need and is normally installed in either a utility room or attic. The cold water tank holds water which it passes to the hot water cylinder depending on how you've programmed your boiler.

When you program a heat only boiler, you set the times and days when you want central heating and hot water to be available. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to come out of your taps.

Heat only boilers can cope with the demand for hot water from multiple taps and sources around your home simultaneously. That's why they're better for larger homes than combi boilers - combi boilers struggle when more than one hot tap is turned on. This is because they have a maximum capacity of water they can heat and distribute at any one time, meaning water pressure, temperature and volume to each tap drops.

Is a Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

Whether this Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only is 60 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Ideal EvoMax 60 boiler?

The Ideal EvoMax 60 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 60 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Ideal EvoMax gas Ideal EvoMax 60 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British 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.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Ideal EvoMax 60 was given an efficiency rating of 96.9% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

If the Ideal EvoMax 60 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

Ideal offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Ideal EvoMax 60.

Is a Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only a suitable choice for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only's output level is 60 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Ideal EvoMax 60?

Ideal’s EvoMax 60 is TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 60 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Ideal EvoMax 60 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

How does the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only rate environmentally?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on 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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only would be a good choice for the environment.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Ideal EvoMax 60 scored an efficiency rating of 96.9% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

What is the warranty period on a Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler?

The parts and labour warranty on the Ideal EvoMax 60 covers all repair-related costs for 2 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
