Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 fit into?

Looking for a gas heat only boiler for your flat or house? Then the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 may be an option you should consider.

Also known as standard boilers, regular boilers or conventional boilers, heat only boilers feature both a hot water/immersion cylinder (normally found in a utility room or landing cupboard) and a cold water tank (normally found in an attic).

Heat only boilers enable you to program in times when you want heating and hot water to be available. If you forget to set the times and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you may have to wait up to an hour to run a bath or shower.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family, a heat only boiler would be a good choice because it can service demand for hot water from multiple points at the same time. This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited volume of water at any one time meaning that, when two or more points want hot water, the water delivered is cooler and lower in both volume and pressure.

Is a Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only outputs at a maximum of 24 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would say that this Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


How large is the Ideal Mexico HE HE24?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 is 850 mm [H] by 450 mm [W] by 530 mm [D] in size.

Many homes in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE24, even though wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners over the last 20 years. If you'd like to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact, wall-mounted boiler to create more space for you and your family, please bear in mind that your pipework may need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Savings on your gas bills will eventually completely pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

Is this Ideal boiler non-condensing or condensing?

This Ideal Mexico HE HE24 is a condensing gas boiler - we always recommend that clients choose the latest condensing models to benefit from the technology, which continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation, processing them through a secondary heat exchanger to, among other tasks, heat colder water returning from your radiators.

By selecting a modern condensing boiler, you'll save money on your gas bills as well as benefitting the wider environment.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only an energy-efficient boiler?

Price and performance are two important issues when choosing a boiler but now, for many people in the UK, so is the environmental impact of how we heat our homes and its effect on climate change.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Do the figures suggest that installing the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only at your property would help in the fight against climate change?

Every boiler manufactured and supplied in the UK must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (SEDBUK “A” rating). These minimums were made law in April 2018 - before that, the minimum energy efficiency rating was 88% (88%/89% = "B" SEDBUK grade, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK grade).

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 was awarded an efficiency rating of 87.9% and a band rating of "A".

Energy efficiency ratings for boilers describe the amount of energy they use and waste when switched on and working.

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 HE24 has been given an ERP rating of "B".

Does a Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler come with a warranty period?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 boiler has a warranty covering parts and labour costs for up to 2 years after installation.

Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

You may wish to consider installing the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 if you are looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat.

You may hear a heat only boiler being referred to as a conventional boiler, a standard boiler or a regular boiler, but they're all the same. Heat only boilers require both an immersion and a cold-water tank to function, the latter usually being situated in the loft. Water is kept warm throughout the day by the immersion cylinder for use when needed.

With a heat only boiler, you program the times at which you want to have hot water and central heating, but if you forget and there's no hot water left, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up before you have your bath or shower.

If you have a home with more than one bathroom, or a larger family, a heat only boiler will probably suit your needs. This is because, if you opted for a combi boiler instead, the water pressure, volume and temperature drop when more than one point is in use - for example if you have a shower while running hot water in the kitchen or another bathroom.

Should I choose a Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler 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 Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler be appropriate for given its output of 24 kW?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.


What are the proportions of a Ideal Mexico HE HE24 boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 measures 850 mm high and 450 mm wide by a depth of 530 mm.

If you use a floor-standing boiler like the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 for your central heating and you're interested in replacing it with a more compact, wall-mounted boiler, you can. Wall-mounted boilers have been the most popular choice over the last two decades among homeowners wanting to create more space within their properties. Bear in mind that, while wall-mounted units are cheap, you may have to pay more for installation if your current piping needs replacing because it's not compatible with your new system.

This additional cost would however be recouped in full over a few years because of the savings you make on your quarterly gas bills.

Mexico HE HE24 – non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 improve energy efficiency and reduce your annual expenditure on gas.

They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth still present in water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases to, for example, increase the temperature of the colder water returning from your radiators.

Condensing boilers are also much better for the environment because they emit fewer greenhouse gases.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler rated as 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.

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.

Will installing a Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 is rated as 87.9% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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 HE24 is "B".

If the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

Ideal’s Mexico HE HE24 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
