Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal EvoMax 60 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

If you want a heat only boiler for your flat or house, the Ideal EvoMax 60 might be an option for you to consider.

Heat only boilers are sometimes called standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers but they are actually the same thing. For a heat only boiler, you'll need to find space for both a cold-water tank and an immersion hot water cylinder - most households choose the attic for the former and a landing cupboard or airing cupboard for the latter. The immersion cylinder is the part of the system that keeps your hot water warm.

You program your boiler to provide you with the hot water you want at certain times, such as when you want to have a bath or a shower. However, if you don't remember to program your boiler, you'll have to wait for it to heat up if the hot water has run out.

A regular boiler is the most suitable choice if you have a larger family or if there is more than one bathroom in your home - the more popular combi boilers do not work well in homes where there is high and often simultaneous demand for hot water.

Should I install a Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler in my house or flat?

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

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler is 60 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this 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.


Making space for the Ideal EvoMax 60

The Ideal EvoMax 60 measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 60 condensing or non-condensing?

This Ideal EvoMax 60 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

Many homeowners are now worried about climate change and the damage they do to the environment from heating their homes has become a subject of increasing concern.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Would installing a Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler in your home be a green choice? 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 60 was awarded an efficiency rating of 96.9% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

If the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler breaks down, am I covered?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Ideal EvoMax 60 boiler.

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?

You may wish to consider installing the Ideal EvoMax 60 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers, also known as regular or conventional boilers, need enough space for a hot water cylinder with an immersion heater (usually found in a landing cupboard) and a cold-water tank (usually found in a loft). The hot water cylinder keeps water warm and the cold water tank stores water that it passes to the hot water cylinder when required or programmed to do so.

You control how your heat only boiler works by programming it to heat water and provide central heating at the times and on the dates you choose. But if you forget to set times and dates and your hot water cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before you have hot water again in your home.

Heat only boilers are often the best choice for a larger family or a property with multiple bathrooms as, unlike with combi boilers, there is no drop in water pressure, temperature or volume when more than one person wants hot water.

Is the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler a suitable choice for my property?

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 60 heat only boiler has an output rate of 60 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal EvoMax 60 boiler?

The size of the Ideal EvoMax 60 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Ideal EvoMax 60 – non-condensing or 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 good 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.

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only be a suitable choice?

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Ideal EvoMax 60 was rated at 96.9% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

Am I covered if the Ideal EvoMax 60 heat only boiler breaks down?

The Ideal EvoMax 60 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
