Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Logic Max H18 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Ideal Logic Max H18 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often referred to as conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) consist of a large cold water tank, hot water cylinder with an immersion heater, and a control panel. The cold water tank is often situated in a loft or attic while the hot water cylinder tends to be located in an airing or landing cupboard.

The major advantage of a heat only boiler compared to the more contemporary combi boiler is that it’s possible to run more than one appliance requiring hot water at the same time. With a combi boiler, switching two hot water taps on at the same time will lead to a drop in water pressure, temperature and volume to both points.

Best suited for larger homes, you can program hot water and central heating for times and days that suit you and your family. However, if you forget to set the timer and your hot water cylinder is empty, then you may have to wait up to an hour before you run a bath.

Is a Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 Max H18 heat only is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most experienced boiler engineers would recommend this Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler as a suitable option for smaller homes and apartments with no more than up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Dimensions of the Ideal Logic Max H18 boiler

The Ideal Logic Max H18's dimensions are 700 mm [H] x 395 mm [W] x 278 mm [D].

Is the Ideal Logic Max H18 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Ideal Logic Max H18 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 Max H18 heat only considered environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

In Britain's bigger cities, gas boilers, in particular, are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions. Overall, 14% of all of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from heating our homes.

Will choosing a Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Ideal Logic Max H18 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use right through to final disposal.

The Ideal Logic Max H18 has a rating of "A".

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Ideal Logic Max H18 breaks down?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years on the Ideal Logic Max H18 boiler to new customers.

Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Ideal Logic Max H18 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

Ideal’s Logic Max H18 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Should I install a Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler in my house or apartment?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

The output of the Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only is 18 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal Logic Max H18 boiler?

The dimensions of the Ideal Logic Max H18 are 700 mm tall, 395 mm wide, and 278 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Logic Max H18 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Ideal Logic Max H18 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

Is the Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

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 a Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

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 Max H18 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Ideal Logic Max H18, the ERP rating is "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Ideal Logic Max H18 boiler?

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 10 years with the Ideal Logic Max H18 boiler.
