Ideal Logic C30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Logic C30 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you want a combi boiler for your flat or house, the Ideal Logic C30 might be an option for you to consider.

Traditional boilers need one or more large tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm for immediate use and the other to store water intended for heating later. Finding space for these large tanks is difficult in British residential property - remember that our houses and flats are among the smallest in the world. This is the problem that combi boilers were designed to solve when they were introduced in the 1970s.

Combi boilers don't need a tank - instead, they instantly heat water drawn from the mains using technology inside the boiler. This hot water is then distributed immediately to your taps or radiators on demand.

The biggest disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water, meaning that they work best when only one point within a household wants hot water. For example, if someone is taking a shower and another person uses a hot water tap at the same time, the water pressure, volume and temperature to both points drops.

Is the Ideal Logic C30 combi boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Ideal Logic C30 Combi boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Ideal Logic C30 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 30.3 kW?

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Ideal Logic C30 Combi boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with up to 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You should also consider a combi boiler's "flow rate" when making your choice.

The flow rate indicates how much water it can take from the mains supply at any one time (measured in litres per minute), which it then heats and distributes to different points in your home like your bathroom, kitchen and radiators. This Ideal Logic C30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

Combi boilers have no storage tanks like system or heat only boilers. This means that if the water pressure where you live is low, there's no benefit in spending money on a combi with a high flow rate because a high flow rate doesn't mean it can draw any more water from the mains.

In addition, there might be lots of people in your household who want to use hot water at the same time while also having the central heating on. Given that average mains pressure in the UK is between 10 and 12 litres per second and a power shower usually requires about 12 litres of water per minute, a combi boiler might not be the right choice for you and your family.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


Dimensions of the Ideal Logic C30 boiler

The Ideal Logic C30 is 700 mm high by 395 mm wide by 278 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Logic C30 non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal Logic C30 boiler is a condensing gas boiler and we recommend that you select one of the latest models if possible.

Condensing boilers reduce homeowners' gas bills and are better for the environment. They do this by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation produced when boilers burn gas to generate the power they need to operate.

Is the Ideal Logic C30 combi rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

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.

Will choosing to install a Ideal Logic C30 combi in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Ideal Logic C30 has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

The legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages from initial production to actual use by the customer, through to the point of disposal.

The Ideal Logic C30 has been given an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What is the warranty period on a Ideal Logic C30 combi boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Ideal Logic C30 are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Ideal Logic C30 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Logic C30 boiler a combi, regular or a system boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Ideal Logic C30 combi boiler is worth considering if you want a combi boiler.

Traditional boilers often have up to two tanks that either store heated water or water to be heated later. Boiler manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to avoid the need for those big tanks. Combi boilers allow homeowners to benefit from the reliable central heating and hot water level they want but without having to give up so much space within their properties - remember that homes in the UK are among the smallest in the developed world.

Your taps and radiators get the hot water they need with a combi boiler. Combi boilers draw cold water direct from the mains which is then heated instantly on demand and distributed to your radiators and taps.

However, combi boilers cannot heat very large volumes of water, which is their main disadvantage. So, for example, when someone wants to take a shower while another person wants to use a hot water tap to do the dishes, water pressure and quantity to both points decreases.

Would the Ideal Logic C30 combi be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

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

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Ideal Logic C30 combi's output at 30.3 kW, which types of property would this Ideal Logic C30 Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would say that this Ideal Logic C30 Combi boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Ideal Logic C30 Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.
When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


The dimensions of the Ideal Logic C30 are

The Ideal Logic C30 boiler measures 700 mm [H] x 395 mm [W] x 278 mm [D] in size.

Is this Ideal boiler condensing or non-condensing?

The Ideal Logic C30 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.

How does the Ideal Logic C30 combi boiler rate environmentally?

As the British public has become more conscious of climate change, many homeowners consider the environment when choosing how to heat their homes.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Will choosing to install a Ideal Logic C30 combi in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Ideal Logic C30 is rated as 94% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

The legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages from initial production to actual use by the customer, through to the point of disposal.

The Ideal Logic C30 has been given an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Does the Ideal Logic C30 combi boiler come with a warranty?

The parts and labour warranty on the Ideal Logic C30 lasts for 2 years.
