Ideal Logic S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Ideal Logic S18 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Ideal Logic S18 is a gas system boiler.

System boilers need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

Should I install a Ideal Logic S18 system boiler in my home?

Whether this Ideal Logic S18 System boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Ideal Logic S18 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Ideal Logic S18 System boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Ideal Logic S18 - size in millimetres

The Ideal Logic S18 occupies a space of 700 mm high by 395 mm wide and 278 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Logic S18 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Ideal Logic S18.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Ideal Logic S18 system considered environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

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.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Ideal Logic S18 system would be a good choice for the environment.

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 S18 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

In 2015, new legislation was introduced by the EU to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy-efficient products that emit fewer harmful gases throughout their lifetime.

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) applies to all products that consume energy, including during the manufacturing process, at the point of final disposal, and all points in between.

The ERP rating of the Ideal Logic S18 is "A".

Will I be covered if the Ideal Logic S18 system breaks down?

The Ideal Logic S18 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Ideal Logic S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Logic S18 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

The Ideal Logic S18 is a gas system boiler.

This type of boiler is better for larger homes and larger families where the demand for water is likely to be higher.

System boilers use a cylinder that draws water from the mains, heats it and then keeps it warm. The cylinder stores a large amount of water, meaning that you should have hot water all day. To be certain of this, make sure that you program your boiler to draw and heat water to meet times when demand is greater, like first thing in the morning before you and your family members go to work or school, and for the evening when everyone gets home.

Unlike heat only boilers, you won't need to find room in your attic for a cold water storage tank - suitable if you don't have an attic, your attic space is very limited, or you are planning an attic conversion in the near future.

Is the Ideal Logic S18 system boiler a suitable option 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 S18 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing a Ideal Logic S18 system boiler would be smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal Logic S18 boiler?

The Ideal Logic S18 is 700 mm in height, 395 mm in width and 278 mm in depth.

Is the Ideal Logic S18 non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal Logic S18 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.

How energy efficient is the Ideal Logic S18 system boiler?

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.

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

Would choosing the Ideal Logic S18 system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Ideal Logic S18 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Ideal Logic S18 has an ERP rating of "A".

How long is the warranty offered by the manufacturer for the Ideal Logic S18 boiler?

The parts and labour warranty offered with this Ideal Logic S18 System boiler covers you for 2 years.
