Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Mexico HE HE30 - 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 HE30.

Sometimes called regular boilers, conventional boilers or standard boilers, heat only boilers require a cold water tank (often kept in the loft) and a hot water cylinder and an immersion heater (often kept in a landing or airing cupboard) to work. The immersion heater heats the water and keeps it warm.

With a heat only boiler, you pre-set a timer to tell the system when you want it to provide you with hot water and central heating. Remember though, if you don't program it and there's no water left in the hot water cylinder, you'll have to wait up to an hour before running a bath or shower.

Heat only boilers are better for larger homes or homes with more than one bathroom where there is a high demand for hot water at certain times of the day. Unlike with combi boilers where water pressure, volume and temperature drops if, for example, more than one person is using a hot tap, regular boilers can cope with multiple members of your household wanting hot water at the same time.

Should I choose a Ideal Mexico HE HE30 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 HE30 heat only is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most heating engineers would recommend that this Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler would be suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What size is the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 boiler measures 850 mm [H] x 450 mm [W] x 530 mm [D] in size.

Hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 in the UK, although wall-hung boilers are now the obvious choice for most homeowners wanting more living space. It is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with one that is compact if you'd like to but you should consider that much of the pipework will need to be replaced in addition to the cost of the boiler and its installation.

Eventually, your savings on gas bills will pay for the one-time investment but it will take a few years.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Ideal Mexico HE HE30.

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.

Is the heat only Ideal Mexico HE HE30 boiler energy efficient?

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.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Will choosing a Ideal Mexico HE HE30 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 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 Mexico HE HE30 was given an efficiency rating of 88.5% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

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 HE30 has been given an ERP rating of "B".

Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 fit into?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new heat only boiler.

You may hear a heat only boiler described as a standard boiler, a regular boiler, or a conventional boiler but the terms mean the same. Heat only boilers require a hot water cylinder (usually stored in a landing or airing cupboard) and a cold water storage tank (usually stored in the loft) to operate. Your water is kept warm by the hot water cylinder throughout the day.

A heat only boiler lets you schedule the hot water and central heating you want for set times of the day. However, you'll have to wait before having a bath or shower if you forget to set it and there's no hot water left in the tank.

If you have a bigger family or more than one bathroom, a heat only boiler is a better option than a combi boiler in many cases. This is because a combi boiler struggles to maintain water volume, pressure and temperature to multiple points in a home simultaneously.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler from the Mexico HE range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

A boiler’s output indicates the amount of power it can use when heating the water which it then sends to your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

If a boiler’s output is too low, there will be times when your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it is too high, you’ll likely be paying more than you need to for your gas.

Measured in kilowatts, the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only's output level is 30 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 measures 850 mm high and 450 mm wide by a depth of 530 mm.

While, in the last 20 years, wall-hung boilers have become the product of choice for most homeowners in the UK, there are still hundreds of thousands of floor-standing boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 in use across the country. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact wall-mounted unit if you want to free up space and but you'll likely have to pay for new piping and pipework.

The savings on your gas bills will save you more than you pay for your new smaller boiler but this will take a few years.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 condensing or non-condensing?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only a good choice for the environment?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

About 14% of the greenhouse gases we produce in the UK come from the power needed for central heating. In bigger British cities, gas boilers are a significant source of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing a Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 was awarded an efficiency rating of 88.5%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade of "A".

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 HE30 has been given an ERP rating of "B".

If the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 breaks down, will I be covered by the warranty?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
