Ideal Vogue C40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Ideal Vogue C40 fit into?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, then the Ideal Vogue C40 is one you may wish to consider.

Traditional boilers would require you to install one or more storage tanks in your property. These tanks either kept the water warm or stored it for later heating. Manufacturers initially designed and introduced combi boilers to the market to offer homeowners the highest levels of warmth and unlimited hot water without taking up as much space.

Combi boilers provide hot water on demand for your radiators and taps. They take water directly from the mains, heat it immediately as it's needed, and then distribute the hot water around your home.

Combi boilers, however, are limited in terms of how much water they can heat at any given time. For example, if one person wishes to take a shower while another wants to turn on a hot water tap, the amount of water reaching each point drops. This results in a drop in the water pressure as well as the temperature.

Is a Ideal Vogue C40 combi boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

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 Vogue C40 combi's output is 40 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Vogue C40 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Ideal Vogue C40 Combi boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

The Ideal Vogue C40 is a combi boiler, which that means that you need to take the flow rate (measured in litres per minute) into account as well as the output rate. This Ideal Vogue C40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

Combis draw water from the mains, instantly heating and distributing it where it's needed - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on.

However, this means that the flow rate of a boiler may effectively be capped by the flow rate of the mains water supply. For example, if your mains pressure is 12l/m, that is the maximum flow rate that your boiler can achieve even if you choose a boiler with a flow rate of 18l/m.

In addition, if your home has more than one bathroom, a high number of radiators, and more than one member of your household wants to use hot water at the same time regularly, the flow rate of both the boiler and the mains water pressure may not be high enough.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal Vogue C40 boiler?

The size of the Ideal Vogue C40 boiler is 740 mm high, 445 mm wide, and 330 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Vogue C40 condensing or non-condensing?

The Ideal Vogue C40 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 Vogue C40 combi 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.

Central heating produces 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Gas boilers in the larger cities emit dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide.

Let's take a closer look at whether installing a Ideal Vogue C40 combi would be a good choice for the environment.

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 Vogue C40 has been given a rating of 93% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from the initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Ideal Vogue C40 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What length of warranty does the Ideal Vogue C40 come with?

The Ideal Vogue C40 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 8 years.

Ideal Vogue C40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Vogue C40 boiler a standard, combi or system model?

The Ideal Vogue C40 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Boilers traditionally required the installation of one or more large tanks around your property. These were filled with water that was either being heated or was to be heated later. British homes are among the smallest in the world so, to solve the space problem, manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to offer homeowners the warmth and hot water supply they needed while taking up much less space.

A combi boiler is designed to heat both radiators and taps on demand and at the same time. Water from the mains passes through a combi boiler and the boiler's technology instantly turns it into hot water. Your boiler then distributes the hot water throughout your home.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that they have a maximum water volume capacity. What this means is that, if one person is using the shower while another uses a hot tap simultaneously, less water gets to each area, resulting in a fall in water pressure at both points.

Is the Ideal Vogue C40 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your home.

The more hot water and heat you want, the higher the output level of your boiler should be. Output is measured in kilowatts and it describes the maximum level of power your boiler has to heat water.

If your output level is too low, your boiler will not have the power it needs to get your water as hot as you want it, particularly when there's a lot of demand for it. Choose a boiler whose output level is too high and you'll have all the hot water you need but will be paying too much for it through higher gas bills.

Which types of property would this Ideal Vogue C40 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 40 kW?

Most experienced Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend this Ideal Vogue C40 Combi boiler as a suitable option for larger properties including detached homes with no more than 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

You'll also need to be sure to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for your home.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can distribute at any given time. This means that if you and your family are likely to be using several taps and showers simultaneously or you have a lot of radiators, you need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Ideal Vogue C40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

As with all combi boilers, the Ideal Vogue C40 is only able to heat and distribute water at the rate at which it actually enters your property.

For this reason, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a very high flow rate if the flow rate in your mains pipes is lower because the extra capacity doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead if your family's demand for hot water is higher than normal.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal Vogue C40 boiler?

The size of the Ideal Vogue C40 boiler is 740 mm high, 445 mm wide, and 330 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Vogue C40 a condensing or non-condensing boiler?

The Ideal Vogue C40 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.

Is the Ideal Vogue C40 combi an energy-efficient boiler?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for many homeowners.

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.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Ideal Vogue C40 combi in your home? Let’s look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK are assigned two energy efficiency ratings. By law, they must achieve a SEDBUK "A" rating subject to a minimum efficiency level of 92%. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" grade and 90% and above an "A" grade).

The ratings awarded to the Ideal Vogue C40 are 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) is European legislation that applies to all products which use or consume energy during their lifespan, including during the manufacturing process and when they're in actual use, right through to the point of final disposal.

The aim is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and create fewer harmful gas emissions.

The Ideal Vogue C40 has an ERP Heat rating of "A" and an ERP Water rating of "A".

How long is the warranty period on the Ideal Vogue C40 combi boiler?

The Ideal Vogue C40 boiler offers a parts and labour warranty of 8 years.
