Ideal Logic Code 38kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Ideal Logic Code 38kW fit into?

When looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Ideal Logic Code 38kW might be a suitable option for you.

Boilers traditionally required the installation of one or more large tanks around your property. These were filled with water that was either being heated or was to be heated later. British homes are among the smallest in the world so, to solve the space problem, manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to offer homeowners the warmth and hot water supply they needed while taking up much less space.

A combi boiler is designed to heat both radiators and taps on demand and at the same time. Water from the mains passes through a combi boiler and the boiler's technology instantly turns it into hot water. Your boiler then distributes the hot water throughout your home.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum water volume capacity. What this means is that, if one person is using the shower while another uses a hot tap simultaneously, less water gets to each area, resulting in a fall in water pressure at both points.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 38kW combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 Code 38kW combi's output at 38 kW, which types of property would this Ideal Logic Code 38kW Combi boiler be most appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ideal Logic Code 38kW Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

The Ideal Logic Code 38kW is a combi boiler, which that means that you need to take the flow rate (measured in litres per minute) into account as well as the output rate. This Ideal Logic Code 38kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

Combis draw water from the mains, instantly heating and distributing it where it's needed - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, this means that the flow rate of a boiler may effectively be capped by the flow rate of the mains water supply. For example, if your mains pressure is 12l/m, that is the maximum flow rate that your boiler can achieve even if you choose a boiler with a flow rate of 18l/m.

In addition, if your home has more than one bathroom, a high number of radiators, and more than one member of your household wants to use hot water at the same time regularly, the flow rate of both the boiler and the mains water pressure may not be high enough.

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 size is the Ideal Logic Code 38kW boiler?

The Ideal Logic Code 38kW is 830 mm high by 395 mm wide by 278 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 38kW a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Ideal Logic Code 38kW 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 Ideal Logic Code 38kW combi environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Ideal Logic Code 38kW combi help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 Logic Code 38kW was given an efficiency rating of 91% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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 38kW are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

Is there a warranty on the Ideal Logic Code 38kW combi boiler if it breaks down?

The Ideal Logic Code 38kW is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Ideal Logic Code 38kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Logic Code 38kW a standard, combi or system boiler?

The Ideal Logic Code 38kW boiler is an option you may wish to consider if you're looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers have much to recommend them - not least the fact that they save a lot of space. Combination (or combi) boilers were introduced by manufacturers in the 1970s to provide practical central heating and hot water distribution to smaller properties - remember that UK houses and flats tend to be among the smallest in the developed world.

Traditional boilers require one or more storage tanks to keep hot water warm and to store water for heating later. In contrast, combi boilers draw water directly from the mains supply and heat it instantly, removing the need for a storage tank. The heated water is then distributed to your taps and radiators on demand.

While combi boilers are suitable choices for many properties, especially those without a loft, there is also a disadvantage in using them. Water is heated instantly and the volume of water that can be heated at any one time is limited. This can result in less water being sent to taps and showers if more than one is being used simultaneously. In these instances, the water pressure to both points will drop.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 38kW combi boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Ideal Logic Code 38kW combi is 38 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Logic Code 38kW Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Ideal Logic Code 38kW Combi boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

If you are thinking about installing a combi boiler like the Ideal Logic Code 38kW in your home, you should consider flow rates as well as output rates. This Ideal Logic Code 38kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can heat up and send to your radiators, taps and showers at any one time. The more taps and showers that could be in use simultaneously or the greater the number of radiators you have, the higher the flow rate you need.

However, you should establish what the mains pressure is at your property as a combi boiler can only heat the water that comes into your home.

For example, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, your boiler can only heat and distribute hot water at a rate of 12 litres per minute even if it has a higher flow rate capacity. Typically, a power shower will require 10 litres of water per minute.

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 dimensions does a Ideal Logic Code 38kW have?

The Ideal Logic Code 38kW is 830 mm high by 395 mm wide by 278 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 38kW non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal Logic Code 38kW is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

Is the Ideal Logic Code 38kW combi an energy-efficient boiler?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

If you would like your next boiler to help in the fight against climate change, would the Ideal Logic Code 38kW combi be a suitable choice?

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Ideal Logic Code 38kW was given a 91% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan, including during the manufacturing process and when they're in actual use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Ideal Logic Code 38kW has an ERP Heat rating of "A" and an ERP Water rating of "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Ideal Logic Code 38kW combi boiler?

On the Ideal Logic Code 38kW, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
