Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi boiler is worth considering if you want a combi boiler.

In older British homes, traditional boilers required you to find room for one or more storage tanks. One tank would keep hot water warm and the other stored cold water for later heating. Manufacturers introduced combi boilers to the UK in the 1970s so that homeowners could get the warmth and hot water they needed without having to sacrifice too much valuable space – remember that residential property in this country is among the smallest in the Western world.

Combi boilers deliver hot water to your radiators and taps using water they draw directly from the mains supply. As mains water travels through a combi boiler, the technology within it heats the cold water instantly and on demand. The hot water is then distributed throughout your house.

Combi boilers have one drawback, however: they can only heat a certain amount of water within a given time. For example, if someone uses the shower and another person uses the hot water tap at the same time, water pressure drops because water reaches each point differently.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi 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.

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 Vogue GEN2 C32 combi's output level is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 Combi boiler be an appropriate choice for?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 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 GEN2 C32 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 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.


How big is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 measures TBC mm in height by TBC mm in width by TBC mm in depth.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 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 GEN2 C32 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.

How energy efficient is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi boiler?

With growing concern among the public about accelerating climate change, how we heat our homes and the impact this has on the environment has become a major topic of concern for many homeowners.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

Do the available figures suggest that installing the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi in your property would be an environmentally friendly choice?

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The aim of the Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is to reduce the harmful gas emissions created during a product’s manufacture and active end use right through to its disposal.

The ERP rating for the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 is "A" for heat and "A" for water.

Is there a warranty on the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi boiler if it breaks down?

The parts and labour warranty on the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 lasts for 8 years.

Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 boiler could be suitable for your house or flat if you are looking for a new combi boiler.

In the past, most boilers needed one or more storage tanks to operate - one to store warm water and the other for storing water to be heated later. But storage tanks are problematic in properties where space is at a premium and particularly where there is no loft. Many properties in the UK are small and so manufacturers introduced combi boilers in the 1970s to eliminate the need for tanks.

With a combi boiler, the hot water for your radiators and taps is delivered on demand. The boiler instantly heats water it draws directly from the mains internally. It then distributes the heated water around your home at mains pressure as you need it.

It is important to bear in mind that, while combi boilers have many benefits, they can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time. This means that, if you run a shower at the same time as someone else is doing the washing up in the kitchen, the volume of water passing to each point will drop, causing a fall in pressure.

Would the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi boiler be suitable for my house or flat?

Whether this Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 Combi boiler is right for your property 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 rating indicates how much energy a boiler can use in providing you with hot water and heat when you need it from your radiators and taps. The greater the output, the more water it can heat.

It's better to take advice on this from a registered installer because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators might not get as hot as you would like them to be. However, if the output level is too high, you'll end up paying more on your gas bills than you need to.

Which types of property would this Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 26 kW?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi boiler is a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.

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 GEN2 C32 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 GEN2 C32 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 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.


Where will the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 fit in my house?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32's dimensions are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

Vogue GEN2 C32 – condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing boilers convert the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into heat which they then recycle to increase the temperature of the colder water returning to your system.

We recommend that homeowners choose a condensing boiler like the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 for this reason - the more recent your model the better because the technology improves every year.

You'll benefit from lower quarterly gas bills and condensing boilers are also much more environmentally friendly.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

14% of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced by the UK comes from the central heating systems we use. In some of Britain's biggest cities, gas boilers create dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere.

If you decide to install a Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 combi in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

Boilers manufactured after April 2018 in the UK must achieve an "A" on the SEDBUK grading system as well as score a minimum of 92% on a separate energy efficiency test. Prior to that, the minimum was 88% - boilers rated at 88% and 89% were given a “B” rating (90% and higher were given an "A").

An energy efficiency rating describes how much energy the boiler uses and how much it wastes when in use.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grading 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 through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Ideal Vogue GEN2 C32 are covered by a 8 year warranty.
