Ideal Vogue C40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Ideal Vogue C40?

The Ideal Vogue C40 is a gas combi boiler.

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.

Would the Ideal Vogue C40 combi boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

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

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

Flow rates are important when choosing a combi boiler as well as output rates.

A combi boiler's flow rate (measured in litres per minute) describes how much water it can instantly heat then distribute to the taps and radiators in your home - you will need to factor this into your decision on a new combi boiler. This Ideal Vogue C40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and there's lots of demand within your household for hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate.

However, it's not quite that simple. If your local mains water pressure is low, you're not going to gain any benefit from choosing a combi boiler with a high flow rate because that higher flow rate 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.


How big is the Ideal Vogue C40?

The Ideal Vogue C40 is 740 mm tall, 445 mm wide, and 330 mm deep.

Ideal Vogue C40 – non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Ideal Vogue C40 - the technology is improving every year so the newer the boiler, the better.

A condensing boiler captures and recycles the warmth still present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat, allowing it to perform more efficiently on tasks like heating the colder water returning from your radiators.

They also offer significant annual savings on household gas bills as well as being more environmentally friendly.

Does the Ideal Vogue C40 combi protect the environment?

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 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 installing a Ideal Vogue C40 combi boiler in your home help combat climate change? What do the figures suggest?

Boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are assigned energy efficiency ratings following testing to an agreed set of standards. These scores indicate how much energy the boiler uses and how much goes to waste when it's in operation.

By law, boilers must achieve a SEDBUK rating of "A" subject to achieving a minimum of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to April 2018, the minimum was 88% (88% and 89% on the SEDBUK are graded "B" and 90% and above is graded "A").

The Ideal Vogue C40 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) directive is Europe-wide legislation designed to reduce harmful gas emissions at all points of a product's life cycle - from the production process to its actual end use, right through to final disposal.

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

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

Ideal’s Vogue C40 boiler includes a parts and labour warranty of 8 years.

Ideal Vogue C40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Ideal Vogue C40 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

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.

Traditionally, boilers needed one or more large tanks installed in your property to store their heated water or water that was to be heated later. These tanks were often too large to be practical for most homes so the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s by manufacturers to help homeowners overcome this issue.

Instead of using tanks as storage, a combi boiler heats water on demand. It draws water from the mains and heats it instantly on demand before distributing it to wherever it is needed in a property, be it your taps or radiators.

Unfortunately, combi boilers have one main disadvantage for larger properties or larger households. Because they have a maximum volume of water that can be heated on demand at any given time, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if, for example, someone is taking a shower and another person in your home wants to use a hot water tap at the same time.

Should I install a Ideal Vogue C40 combi boiler in my house or flat?

Whether this Ideal Vogue C40 Combi boiler is right for where you live depends on its size or what its "output" level is. Size does not mean its physical dimensions, however - it means how powerful it is.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and indicates how much energy it can use to heat the water needed for your radiators, taps and showers. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

A boiler whose output is too high will give you hot water and warm radiators but also higher gas bills, whereas a boiler whose output is too low will result in cheaper gas bills but the water might not always be as hot as you want it to be.

The output of the Ideal Vogue C40 combi is 40 kW, so which types of property would this model be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

With all combi boilers, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate when making your decision.

Like all combi boilers, the Ideal Vogue C40 draws water from the mains. It instantly heats that water and then distributes it to the parts of your home which need it - taps, radiators, bathrooms, and so on. This Ideal Vogue C40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

There is no benefit to purchasing a boiler with a high flow rate if the local water pressure is not that good - a high flow rate doesn't mean that your combi can draw more water from the mains.

In addition, if you live in a home with a large number of radiators and more than one bathroom and if more than one person regularly wants to use hot water at a time, a combi boiler may struggle to provide enough water at a hot enough temperature.

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.


How large is the Ideal Vogue C40?

The Ideal Vogue C40's dimensions are 740 mm [H] x 445 mm [W] x 330 mm [D].

Is this Ideal boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Ideal Vogue C40 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Ideal Vogue C40 combi boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

Environmentally-friendly heating has become an important issue for homeowners concerned about the accelerating pace of climate change.

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.

Will installing a Ideal Vogue C40 combi in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

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 Vogue C40 was given a 93% energy efficiency rating 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), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

The legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages from initial production to actual use by the customer, through to the point of disposal.

The Ideal Vogue C40 has been given an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Ideal Vogue C40 boiler?

The Ideal Vogue C40 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 8 years.
