Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is a gas heat only boiler.

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 HE36 heat only boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

The output of the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only is 36 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be most suitable for?

A heating engineer would recommend that this Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler would provide adequate heating and hot water for larger properties including detached homes with up to 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The size of the Ideal Mexico HE HE36

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is 850 mm tall, 450 mm wide, and 530 mm deep.

Over the last 20 years, compact wall-hung boilers have been installed in far greater numbers in UK properties than floor-standing boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE36. While hundreds of thousands of properties still have floor-standing boilers, many homeowners consider making the switch to wall-hung boilers to increase the amount of living space that they and their families can enjoy. We can swap your old floor-standing boiler for a wall-mounted boiler but please bear in mind that there may be an additional cost for your installation if we have to replace the pipework.

You should though be able to recoup this investment in full in just a few years with the savings you make on your gas bills.

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

This Ideal Mexico HE HE36 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 HE36 heat only an environmentally friendly boiler?

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

In the largest cities of Britain, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of atmospheric nitrogen dioxide emissions. In total, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating systems.

Would choosing a Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

All boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must be rated as an “A” on the SEDBUK grading system, subject to a minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum rate was 88% - boilers with an energy efficiency of 88% or 89% were given a “B” rating. Boilers scoring 90% or more were given an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and how much goes to waste in operation.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 has an efficiency rating of 89% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force in 2015. This legislation was introduced to encourage manufacturers to create more energy-efficient products and it covers all products that consume energy during their lifetimes, including energy used during production and at the point of disposal.

The ERP assessors assigned a rating of "B" when testing the Ideal Mexico HE HE36.

How long am I covered by the warranty for if the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 breaks down?

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 2 years.

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 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.

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

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

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 are

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is 850 mm tall, 450 mm wide, and 530 mm deep.

Over the last 20 years, most homeowners in the UK have shifted from floor-standing boilers like the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 to more compact, wall-hung units to free up space. You can replace your existing floor-standing boiler with a compact but you should be aware that much of the pipework might need replacing in addition to the cost of the boiler and installation.

There will be a significant one-time investment here - the savings on your gas bills will eventually pay for it but this will take a few years.

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

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

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

How we heat our homes and the damage we might be doing to the environment as a result has become an important point of concern to many homeowners worried about climate change.

With central heating being responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, your choice of boiler matters. Gas boilers are also responsible for the significant atmospheric volumes of dangerous nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Will choosing a Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only boiler for your home be positive for the environment? Let's examine the figures.

Boilers manufactured or supplied to UK domestic properties must achieve a legal minimum energy efficiency rating of 92% (equivalent to a good "A" grade using the SEDBUK scale). Prior to this, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are a "B" SEDBUK grade and anything 90% or above is an "A" grade).

The energy efficiency rating of a boiler refers to the amount of energy it uses to perform its everyday functions as well as the amount of energy it wastes.

The Ideal Mexico HE HE36 has been given a rating of 89% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is a European regulation governing products which require energy to operate throughout their lives and encourages manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly.

The legislation is designed to reduce the potential for harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and actual use right through to the point of final disposal.

For the Ideal Mexico HE HE36, the ERP rating is "B".

How many years' warranty does the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 heat only come with?

A parts and labour warranty of 2 years is included when you purchase the Ideal Mexico HE HE36 boiler through PlumbProud.
