Ideal Logic Code 26kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Ideal Logic Code 26kW?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Ideal Logic Code 26kW combi boiler is worth considering if you want a combi boiler.

Combi boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to offer British homeowners a way to cheaply and reliably heat their homes and have hot water without taking up too much space. Previously, most boilers had one or more storage tanks, which either heated water and kept it warm or held water to be heated later.

With combi boilers, there is no need to find space for large tanks around your home as the hot water needed for your radiators and taps is available on demand. Combi boilers do this by drawing water from your mains supply, heating it instantly whenever you need it and then distributing it to where it's needed in the home.

The major disadvantage to combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for heating water. In a larger household, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if two or more people are trying to use hot water at the same time.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 26kW combi suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Ideal Logic Code 26kW Combi 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 Logic Code 26kW combi is 26 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Ideal Logic Code 26kW Combi boiler as suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

Please remember too that all combi boilers draw water from the mains - they have no storage tanks. Combis heat the water from the mains on demand and then send it to wherever it's needed in the house, like a radiator, a bathroom or a kitchen.

The speed at which it can do this is called the "flow rate", which is measured in litres per minute. If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and multiple people are regularly trying to use the hot water at one time, such as in the morning or evening, you'll need a combi with a high flow rate. This Ideal Logic Code 26kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 11 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. If the flow rate of the local water supply is 11l/m, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a flow rate of 17l/m because it will never be able to use that extra capacity.

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.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal Logic Code 26kW boiler?

Ideal’s Logic Code 26kW is 830 mm tall, 395 mm wide, and 278 mm deep.

Logic Code 26kW – non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal Logic Code 26kW 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.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 26kW combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Ideal Logic Code 26kW combi in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

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 Logic Code 26kW was awarded an efficiency rating of 89% with a SEDBUK band rating of "B".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims is to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce the harmful gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP gradings for the Ideal Logic Code 26kW are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

Does a Ideal Logic Code 26kW combi boiler come with a warranty period?

The Ideal Logic Code 26kW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Ideal Logic Code 26kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Logic Code 26kW - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your flat or house? Then the Ideal Logic Code 26kW may be an option you should consider.

One of the reasons the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s was because residential properties are among the smallest in the world. More traditional boilers require one or more large tanks to be stored around the home to function.

A combi boiler is a self-contained unit that draws water from the mains then heats and distributes it instantly and on demand - no tanks are needed.

They are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and offer only one major disadvantage - there is a maximum volume of water that can be heated at any one time. If that limit is exceeded by, for example, two people using a hot water tap at the same time, there will be a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both taps.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 26kW combi boiler from the Logic Code range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

Whether this Ideal Logic Code 26kW 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 Code 26kW Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 26 kW?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Ideal Logic Code 26kW Combi boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

With combi boilers, flow rates are as important a consideration as output rates.

All combi boilers draw water from the mains. They then heat this water instantly whenever it's needed and distribute it to your radiators and taps.

A boiler's "flow rate" describes how much water a boiler can draw from the mains at any one time, which it then heats and sends around your home (measured in litres per minute). This Ideal Logic Code 26kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 11 L/m.

If your home has a large number of radiators, a lot of bathrooms, or multiple people who wish to use the hot water at the same time, your combi boiler may not be able to draw as much water from the mains as it needs to serve everyone, regardless of how high the flow rate is.

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.


What are the proportions of a Ideal Logic Code 26kW boiler?

The size of the Ideal Logic Code 26kW boiler is 830 mm high, 395 mm wide, and 278 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 26kW condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Ideal Logic Code 26kW for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 26kW combi good for the environment?

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.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing the Ideal Logic Code 26kW combi help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

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 Logic Code 26kW was rated at 89% with a SEDBUK grading of "B".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

ERP ratings of "A" for heat and "A" for water were assigned when testing the Ideal Logic Code 26kW.

Does a Ideal Logic Code 26kW combi boiler come with a warranty period?

On the Ideal Logic Code 26kW, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
