Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Ideal’s Logic ESP1 30kW is one you might consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Traditional boilers require at least one large cylindrical tank to work, normally housed in a large landing cupboard, utility room or the attic. As the UK has some of the world's smallest residential properties, manufacturers introduced the combi boiler in the 1970s to address the issue of space while meeting homeowners' need for central heating and hot water at the same time.

Combi boilers don't need external storage tanks. Instead, they draw water directly from the mains, heat it and then distribute it on demand to the areas where it is needed.

The most important disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum capacity for the amount of water they can heat up. This means that, if one person in your household is having a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere, then the volume, pressure and temperature of the water to both points decreases.

Is a Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi the right boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi boiler is 30 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi boiler would be an ideal installation option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With all combi boilers, the "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) is as important a consideration as output rate when choosing which model to go for. This Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

Like all combi boilers, the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, the water in the mains pipe that feeds your boilers has its own flow rate - normally between 10 and 12l/m. So if you choose a combi with a flow rate of 14l/m but local water pressure is equivalent to 11l/m, your boiler will actually operate at 11l/m - below its capacity.

In addition, if different family members want hot water at the same time (like for regular morning and evening showers) and your boiler has to provide hot water to your radiators at the same time, a combi boiler may not be suitable.

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 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 ESP1 30kW combi environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

The heating of our homes accounts for 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas emissions. Especially in the big cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will installing a Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW has been given a rating of 94% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

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".

If the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi boiler breaks down, am I covered?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Ideal Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW boiler are covered by a 2 year warranty.

Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Ideal’s Logic ESP1 30kW is one you might consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

In many properties, combi boilers are more suitable than traditional types of boiler. Combi boilers heat water instantly on demand, which they draw directly from the mains supply, removing the need for storage tanks that can take up valuable space in your home.

A combi boiler is often the right choice for a smaller property, particularly if your home doesn't have a useable loft. As water is heated and delivered immediately rather than being kept warm for hours in an immersion tank, combi boilers reduce gas usage, thereby minimising your heating costs.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they can only heat a certain amount of water at any one time. This means that, if two people are using different taps or showers within your home at the same time, the flow of heated water to each will be reduced, as will the water pressure and temperature.

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

Whether this Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or "output" level. Size does not mean its physical dimensions - it means how powerful it is.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher gas bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi outputs at a maximum of 30 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler be appropriate for?

Most heating engineers would recommend this Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler as a suitable option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW Combi boiler's flow rate is 12 L/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

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 Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW's dimensions are 700 mm [H] x 395 mm [W] x 278 mm [D].

Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW – non-condensing or condensing?

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW is a condensing gas boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

Is the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing to install a Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW 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 ESP1 30kW is rated as 94% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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 ESP1 30kW are "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

If the Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW combi boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Ideal Logic ESP1 30kW boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.
