Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW boiler a standard, combi or system model?

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a combi boiler for your flat or house.

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 a Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Whether this Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW 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 ESP1 30kW combi is 30 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler be installed 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 ESP1 30kW 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.


What dimensions does a Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW have?

The dimensions of the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW are 700 mm [H] x 395 mm [W] x 278 mm [D].

Is this Ideal boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW as it is a modern condensing gas boiler from a trusted manufacturer with a reputation for supplying highly energy-efficient boilers.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle it back into the heating system. With this extra energy, your boiler can, among other tasks, reheat colder water coming back from your radiators without having to burn more gas.

Condensing boilers significantly reduce your quarterly gas costs and they're better for the environment.

How does the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

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 Logic ESP1 30kW scored an efficiency rating of 94% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

All products that consume energy throughout their lifespan must comply with the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive.

Companies are legally obliged to reduce harmful gas emissions at all stages of a product's life cycle, from initial manufacturing right through to final disposal as well as when the product is in actual use.

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW scores "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Is there a warranty on the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi boiler if it breaks down?

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW boiler comes with a 2 year warranty for parts and labour.

Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What kind of boiler is the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW - standard, combi or system?

If you are considering installing a combi boiler in your house or flat, then the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW boiler is certainly worth investigating.

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.

Would the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi boiler be suitable 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 Logic ESP1 30kW combi's output level is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler is most suitable for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

In addition to output rates, you need to consider a combi boiler's flow rate when making your choice.

The flow rate of your boiler dictates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that it can heat and distribute to your taps, showers and radiators at any one time.

However, a combi boiler like the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW can only heat and deliver water at the rate at which it actually enters your property. For this reason, you should also find out what the mains pressure to your house is before purchasing a boiler.

It's pointless spending more money on a boiler with a 17l/m flow rate if the local water pressure is 11l/m. To give you an indication of average water demand, a power shower typically requires 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap 4-8 litres. This Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

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 ESP1 30kW boiler?

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW measures 700 mm in height by 395 mm in width by 278 mm in depth.

Is the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW condensing or non-condensing?

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will installing a Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

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 ESP1 30kW has an efficiency rating of 94% with a SEDBUK grade 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 ESP1 30kW has an ERP Heat rating of "A" and an ERP Water rating of "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW boiler?

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
