Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 a combi, system or regular boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Should I install a Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler in my house or flat?

Whether this Ideal Mexico HE HE36 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 HE36 heat only boiler is 36 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would recommend that this Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler is suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Where will the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 fit in my house?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is 850 mm [H] by 450 mm [W] by 530 mm [D] in size.

Hundreds of thousands of properties in the UK still have floor-standing boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 despite the fact that over the last 20 years more compact, wall-hung boilers have become the preference for most homeowners keen to free up space in their properties.

While it is possible to replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a wall-mounted boiler to free up space in your home, please bear in mind that much of the pipework might need replacing, which is over and above the cost of the boiler and its installation. This will be a significant one-off investment if you do decide to switch and while the savings on your gas bills will repay it eventually, this will take a few years.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you select one of the very latest condensing gas boilers on the market like the Ideal Mexico HE HE36.

Condensing boilers are better for the environment because they capture and recycle the heat still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning lower greenhouse gas emissions.

They're also a lot cheaper to run meaning that, if you're replacing a very old and inefficient boiler, the savings on your gas bill over 5-10 years add up to more than you pay for the boiler itself.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Will choosing to install a Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 89% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

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 HE36 has an ERP rating of "B".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 boiler?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included with the Ideal Ideal Mexico HE HE36 boiler.

Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Mexico HE HE36 - a system boiler, regular boiler or combi boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is a heat only boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

If your home has more than one bathroom or you have a large family that uses a lot of hot water, a heat only boiler (sometimes called a standard boiler, a regular boiler or a conventional boiler) is likely to be the best option for you. Heat only boilers require both a hot water or immersion cylinder and a cold water tank. Once the water in the cylinder is heated, you can use this hot water throughout the day and it can feed multiple taps and showers at the same time.

This is in contrast to a combi boiler which can only heat a limited amount of water at any one time. This can cause a problem if two or more taps and showers are being used simultaneously as the water temperature, pressure and volume to all points will drop.

Heat only boilers allow you to program the times that you want heat and hot water to be available. However, if you forget to do this and the immersion cylinder is empty, you may have to wait up to an hour before hot water becomes available again.

If your property already has a water tank and cylinder, it will nearly always be cheaper to replace like for like instead of replacing it with a different type of boiler. In addition to new pipework, you may need to replace older radiators that may be unable to cope with the higher water pressure delivered by other types of boiler.

Is a Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler right for my house or apartment?

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.

The output rate of a boiler tells you how much power it has available to it for heating the water that comes out of your taps and warms your radiators. A higher output rate means that your boiler has more power at its disposal.

You need to make sure you select a boiler with the right output rate. That's because, if your output rate is too high, then your boiler will have more power than it needs but it will cost too much to run. If the output rate is too low, your water may often not be hot enough.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only's output is 36 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe engineer would say that this Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler's level of output makes it suitable for installing in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Ideal Mexico HE HE36 size

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is 850 mm in height, 450 mm in width and 530 mm in depth.

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 HE36 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 HE36 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is a condensing gas boiler - this is the type of boiler we recommend to most clients because they're better for the environment and they will save money on annual fuel bills.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in both the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when gas is burned to provide your boiler with power.

This means it needs less gas to operate and it uses this extra energy to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to the boiler from the radiators in your home.

Is the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 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.

Central heating systems are responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. You may also be aware that the gas boilers we use emit dangerous nitrogen dioxide in large volumes in the bigger British cities.

Would choosing the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

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 HE36 was given a 89% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation which applies to all products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

Its purpose is to encourage manufacturers to offer products that are kinder to the environment by reducing harmful gas emissions at all stages, from production and end use right through to disposal.

The ERP rating for the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is "B".

Is this Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only covered by a warranty?

On the Ideal Mexico HE HE36, the manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.
