Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a heat only boiler for your house or flat, then the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 is one you may wish to consider.

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?

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".

Your boiler should be able to cope with peak hot water demand in your property and not just your average hot water usage. The output rate of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to provide hot water to your taps, showers and radiators.

If the output of your boiler is too low, there will often be times when your water isn't as hot as you want. But if your boiler output is too high, it will be more costly to run (often unnecessarily).

The output of the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler is 30 kW kilowatts. Which types of property would this be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe engineers would suggest that the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for installation in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What dimensions does a Ideal Mexico HE HE30 have?

The measurements of the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 are 850 mm by 450 mm by 530 mm.

Many homeowners still have floor-standing boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 even though wall-mounted boilers have been the preferred choice because of their compact size. If you want to replace your existing boiler with a compact wall-hung one to free up extra living space for you and your family, we can do this for you but please be aware that we may need to replace much of your existing pipework, which will incur an additional charge.

However, given the efficiency of modern wall-mounted gas boilers, the savings you make on your energy bills over the coming years should more than repay the cost of your investment.

Mexico HE HE30 – condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only 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.

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.

Will installing a Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

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".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is a European directive which applies to all products that consume energy over their lifetime.

It encourages companies to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all life cycle stages, including initial manufacturing and end use right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 is rated "B".

Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of 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 the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler a suitable option for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. Size doesn't mean how big the boiler is - it means how big its "output" is.

This Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler gets its power from gas and the power it's capable of producing is measured in kilowatts - the output rate is actually a kilowatt rate. The higher the output rate, the more kilowatts a boiler can use when heating water.

If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too low, it may not have enough power to make your water as hot as you would like. If you choose a boiler whose output rate is too high, you won't have to put up with lukewarm water but you will face higher gas bills.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only boiler has an output level of 30 kW, so which types of property would it be appropriate 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.


Dimensions of the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 boiler

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 is 850 mm in height, 450 mm in width and 530 mm in depth.

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 HE30. 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.

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

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

How does the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only rate environmentally?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British homeowners.

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 the environmental impact of installing a Ideal Mexico HE HE30 heat only in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

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 HE30 was given a 88.5% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) was introduced in 2015 and applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime, including during the manufacturing process and at the point of final disposal.

The purpose of the ERP is to ensure that companies create products that are kinder to the environment by reducing both the energy they use and the harmful emissions they produce.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 has an ERP rating of "B".

What length of warranty does the Ideal Mexico HE HE30 come with?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE30 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 2 years following installation.
