Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, then the Ideal Logic Max H18 is one you may wish to consider.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family which uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a regular boiler, a conventional boiler or a standard boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you wish heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like and not choose a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is the Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only suitable for my house or flat?

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?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would be likely to recommend that this Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler is capable of providing heating and hot water to up to 10 radiators and one bathroom and would therefore be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments.


Ideal Logic Max H18 dimensions

The Ideal Logic Max H18 measures 700 mm in height and has a width of 395 mm and a depth of 278 mm.

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

Condensing gas boilers like the Ideal Logic Max H18 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only environmentally friendly?

As more of us are increasingly concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and its impact on the environment has become an issue of importance to homeowners.

Central heating accounts for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In larger British cities, gas boilers emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide into the atmosphere.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

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 Max H18 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating 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".

Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Logic Max H18 a standard, combi or system boiler?

You may wish to consider installing the Ideal Logic Max H18 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

Heat only boilers (often called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers) keep hot water warm in an immersion cylinder (generally installed in a utility room or landing cupboard) and also include a cold storage tank that holds water for heating later.

As with all boilers, you set the times and days you want your hot water and central heating to be on. However, if you forget to program the boiler and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour for hot water to return.

A heat only boiler is best for homes with more than one bathroom or a larger family - immersion cylinders store a lot of water and they can deliver water at the same temperature, volume and pressure to multiple points in your home at the same time. This is in contrast to the more popular combi boilers that draw water from the mains and heat it on demand - these types of boiler have volume capacity issues.

Would the Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


What dimensions does a Ideal Logic Max H18 have?

The Ideal Logic Max H18 boiler measures 700 mm [H] x 395 mm [W] x 278 mm [D] in size.

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

The Ideal Logic Max H18 is a condensing gas boiler - where possible, we always recommend to clients that they choose one of the very latest condensing boilers to take advantage of this technology, which improves year after year.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient as they capture and recycle the heat contained in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation. They then use this heat to perform tasks like warming up colder water returning to the boiler from the radiators.

By choosing a condensing boiler, you'll help the environment as well as save money on your gas bills.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only?

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.

Around 14% of the greenhouse gases produced in the UK is a result of our central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in some of our largest cities.

Will choosing to install a Ideal Logic Max H18 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

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 Max H18 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

This legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages, from initial production through to actual use by a customer and up to the point of disposal.

The Ideal Logic Max H18 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

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

A parts and labour warranty of 10 years is included when you purchase the Ideal Logic Max H18 boiler through PlumbProud.
