Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 a combi, system or regular boiler?

Ideal’s Mexico HE HE15 is one you might consider if you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Would the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

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 Mexico HE HE15 heat only is 15 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most heating engineers would suggest that the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 is 850 mm high by 450 mm wide by 530 mm deep.

Wall-hung boilers have become the preferred choice for homeowners in the UK over the last 20 years, but hundreds of thousands of homes still use bulkier floor-standing models for their central heating. It is possible to replace your floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted one if you wish so that you and your family have more living space. But we must advise you that you may also have to pay to replace some or all of your existing pipework.

You should however be able to recoup this cost in full after a few years because of the savings you make each quarter on your gas bills.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 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.

How does the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only rate environmentally?

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.

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 installing a Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 are 88.5% with a SEDBUK 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 Mexico HE HE15 scores "B".

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Ideal Mexico HE HE15 boiler?

Ideal’s Mexico HE HE15 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Ideal’s Mexico HE HE15 - system, regular or combi?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler is worth considering if you want a heat only boiler.

Heat only boilers (sometimes called conventional boilers, standard boilers or regular boilers) require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally in a landing cupboard or utility room) and a cold water tank (normally in the attic). The immersion cylinder keeps hot water warm and the cold water tank holds water which it transfers to the immersion cylinder when required.

You set the times that you need heat and hot water with a standard boiler. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, it can be used throughout the day. However, it takes a while for the water to heat up and so, if you haven't set your system, you will have to wait a while for heat and hot water to come back (normally no more than an hour).

Combi boilers deliver hot water instantly but there is a limit to the amount of water they can heat and distribute at any one time. Heat only boilers are usually better choices if you have a large family or more than one bathroom where more than one person in your household requires hot water at the same time.

Is a Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler suitable for 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 - its "output".

The output rate tells you how much energy your boiler has to use to provide you and your family with hot water and central heating. A higher output rate means that it can heat greater volumes of water.

Please be aware, though - if you choose a boiler whose output is too low, the water in your radiators and coming from your taps may not be warm enough. Conversely, if you choose a boiler with too high an output, you'll pay more for gas than is necessary.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler has an output level of 15 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate for?

An experienced heating engineer would say that this Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler's level of output makes it a suitable installation for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


The size of the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 in millimetres

The measurements of the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 are 850 mm by 450 mm by 530 mm.

If you want to replace your floor-standing boiler with a more compact, wall-mounted model, this will give you and your family more space. Hundreds of thousands of homes in the UK still use floor-standing boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE15, but wall-mounted models have been the most popular choice for homeowners over the last two decades. We can replace your floor-mounted unit with a wall-mounted unit, but please be aware that the cost of installation will be higher if we need to replace your current piping.

However, you can recoup this investment in full over a few years with the savings you make on your gas bills.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

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.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

The energy efficiency rating of the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 is 88.5% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency tests record how much energy is wasted on non-core functions during an operation.

By law, all boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a minimum energy efficiency performance level of 92% (equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade). Up to April 2018, the minimum performance level was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90%+ an "A" grade).

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 Mexico HE HE15 has been given an ERP rating of "B".

What warranty does the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler come with?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
