Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 fit into?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 boiler is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

A heat only boiler, sometimes called a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, requires both a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank to operate. Most homeowners keep their hot water cylinder in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard and their cold water tank in the attic. Your hot water is kept warm in the immersion cylinder.

With a heat only boiler, you program your hot water and temperature for set times during the day or week. If you forget to set your boiler or the immersion cylinder runs out of hot water, you may have to wait up to an hour for your supply of hot water to be restored.

A heat only boiler is likely to be the best choice for a home with several bathrooms or a bigger family - the type of household where hot water is in continual demand and more than one person might need it at once. With the more popular combi boiler, there is a maximum amount of water that can be heated and distributed, while pressure, volume and temperature drop if two or more people need hot water at once.

Is a Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler suitable for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you install in your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions, size means how much power it has - the "output".

Output measures in kilowatts how much power a boiler can use when heating water for your radiators or taps. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If the output rate is too low, your hot water might often be only lukewarm, and if it is too high, you will be paying more for your gas than you need to.

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

An experienced boiler engineer would recommend that this Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


How large is the Ideal Mexico HE HE15?

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

Compact wall-hung boilers have been the most popular boiler installation choice over the past two decades. If you have a floor-standing boiler in your home like the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 and you want to replace it with a wall-mounted unit so that you and your family have more space to live, this is possible - however, please note that there may be an additional premium on fitting costs if your current pipework needs replacing.

The savings you make on your gas bills over the coming years will cover the cost of installation completely.

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

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 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 Mexico HE HE15 heat only environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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.

Would installing a Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 was awarded an efficiency rating of 88.5% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

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 to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 is "B".

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

You receive a parts and labour warranty of 2 years with the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 boiler.

Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a heat only boiler for your flat or house.

Large family homes and properties with more than one bathroom benefit most from installing a heat only boiler (also referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler). Heat only boilers require both a cold water tank and hot water cylinder and an immersion heater. The immersion heater heats and keeps the water warm and feeds hot water to taps, radiators and other sources via the boiler.

Tell your boiler the times and days when you want hot water and central heating and it'll be there waiting for you. However, if you forget and there's no hot water left in your tank, you'll have to wait up to an hour before it's ready.

The biggest benefit of a heat only boiler is that, unlike a combi boiler, it’s possible to run two taps with hot water at the same time with no drop in pressure, volume or temperature (a known issue with combi boilers). It also means you can shower and have the dishwasher running at the same time without your water pressure being affected.

Is a Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Where will the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 fit in my house?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE15 measures 850 mm tall, 450 mm wide, and 530 mm deep.

Compact wall-mounted boilers have been the models of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. But many thousands of properties in the UK still have a floor-standing boiler like the Ideal Mexico HE HE15. If you're interested in switching to a wall-mounted unit to create extra space in your property, bear in mind that there might be a premium on the installation work because you may need to replace your current piping.

Newer compact boilers mean lower gas bills and you could recover the cost of your investment from those savings within a few years.

Ideal Mexico HE HE15 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Ideal Mexico HE HE15.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

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

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.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Would choosing the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 heat only help the environment? Let's see what the statistics suggest.

By law, the minimum level of energy efficiency for boilers manufactured in the UK is 92%, equivalent to a good SEDBUK “A” rating. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% - boilers whose energy efficiency levels were 88% or 89% were given a "B" rating on the SEDBUK scale and those at 90% or higher were given an "A".

The energy efficiency rating awarded to each boiler indicates the amount of energy that is wasted when in operation.

Following testing, the Ideal Mexico HE HE15 was given a 88.5% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "B" when testing the Ideal Mexico HE HE15.

What is the warranty period for the Ideal Mexico HE HE15?

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