Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Mexico HE HE24 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Ideal Mexico HE HE24.

Heat only boilers are also referred to as regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers. Heat only boilers require both a hot water/immersion cylinder (usually stored in a landing cupboard or airing cupboard) and a cold water tank (usually stored in a loft) to work. Water passes from the cold tank to the immersion cylinder and the immersion cylinder heats and keeps water warm.

You program your immersion cylinder via the control panel to make sure that you have the hot water and central heating you need. However, if you forget to set your system and there's no water left in the immersion cylinder, it can take up to an hour before you'll have hot water again.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family and there's a high demand for hot water, a heat only boiler is often a more suitable option than a combi boiler. Although combis offer space-saving advantages, there is a maximum volume of water they can heat at any given time. This means that, if two or more people in your household want hot water at the same time, there will likely be a drop in temperature, volume and pressure to both points.

Should I choose a Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler 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 HE24 heat only is 24 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice 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.


Making space for the Ideal Mexico HE HE24

The dimensions of the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 are 850 mm [H] x 450 mm [W] x 530 mm [D].

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.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

Condensing gas boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

How energy efficient is the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler?

How we heat our homes and the effect that has on climate change has become important to many homeowners worried about the environment.

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.

Will choosing a Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 was rated at 87.9% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 is rated "B".

What is the length of the warranty on the Ideal Mexico HE HE24?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years on the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 boiler to new customers.

Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Mexico HE HE24 - combi, system or regular boiler?

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.

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 the right boiler 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 heating engineer would recommend that this Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler would be a suitable installation choice for 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 stands at 850 mm tall, 450 mm wide and 530 mm deep.

Many properties in the UK still feature a floor-standing boiler like the Ideal Mexico HE HE24. This is despite the fact that more compact wall-mounted types have been the first choice of homeowners over the last 20 years seeking more space to live for their families. If you want, you can choose to replace your floor-standing model with a wall-mounted, more compact boiler. However, this could involve having to change the pipework, adding to overall installation costs.

You would benefit from savings on your gas each year that would eventually pay off your investment in a wall-mounted boiler.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 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.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only rated as environmentally friendly?

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.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

Would choosing a Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required to have an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above (or a good “A” SEDBUK rating). Before April 2018, when the law changed, the minimum energy efficiency level permissible was 88% (86-90% is a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90%+ is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating indicates the amount of energy used and wasted during normal operational performance.

Following its assessment, the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 was given an efficiency rating of 87.9% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 has a rating of "B" .

Is there a warranty on the Ideal Mexico HE HE24 heat only boiler if it breaks down?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE24 boiler is provided with a parts and labour warranty lasting 2 years.
