Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 - a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, then the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 is one you may wish to consider.

System boilers, like regular boilers, require a hot water cylinder (usually placed in a landing or airing cupboard) to work but they don’t require a separate cold water tank. This makes installation quicker and easier and, for homeowners with little loft space or who are considering a loft conversion, they're a more suitable choice.

System boilers don't need separate water tanks because they contain built-in circulating pumps that perform the same task. Just like heat only boilers, they require you to program in the times when you want heating and hot water to be available - they don't offer instant hot water like combi boilers. The cylinders keep whatever water they contain warm, although, if there is no hot water in the tank, you will have to wait up to an hour before hot water will come through your taps.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With a boiler, however, size does not mean how big the boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The amount of hot water you get from showers, bathrooms, and sinks and heat from your radiators depends on your boiler's output (measured in kilowatts). The higher the level of output, the better your home will be heated and you can be more certain that the water from your taps will be as hot as you want.

However, you must be careful. You might not get the hot water you want if your boiler output is too low. If it's too high, you'll be paying more than you need to for gas.

With the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system's output at 18 kW, which types of property would this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System boiler be most appropriate for?

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What size is a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 boiler?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 boiler is TBC mm high, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 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 Vogue GEN2 S18.

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.

How does the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system boiler rate environmentally?

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.

Approximately 14% of the UK's greenhouse gas production is caused by our central heating systems. The gas boilers in larger urban areas of Britain are mainly responsible for emissions of toxic nitrogen dioxide.

Would choosing a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must operate at a minimum level of energy efficiency of 92% ("A" rating on the SEDBUK scale). Before that, the minimum was 88% - boilers scoring 88/89% were given a SEDBUK "B" rating and 90% or above an "A" rating.

The energy efficiency score of a boiler indicates how much energy it uses and how much goes to waste when in use.

After its assessment, the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 has a rating of "A" .

What is the warranty period for the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18?

The parts and labour warranty on the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 lasts for 10 years.

Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

Looking for a gas system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 boiler may be worth considering.

Ever since system boilers arrived on the market, they have been a popular choice in new homes. In the same way as regular boilers, they work along with a hot water cylinder, which is usually located in an airing cupboard. Since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they appeal to some homeowners, especially if they intend to convert their loft in the future.

Their design includes (often built-in) circulating pumps to send hot water to your taps and radiators. They're also quicker and easier to install because you don't need to find room for and fit a water storage tank.

In addition, system boilers require programming for the flow of heat and hot water, which is not available right away. In any case, the cylinder keeps the water hot for use later, so you shouldn't have to wait for your bath as long as you set your timer and leave it on for long enough to heat sufficient water to use throughout the day.

Is a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system boiler suitable for my house or flat?

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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

An experienced PlumbProud boiler engineer would likely recommend this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System boiler as suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 boiler?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 boiler measures TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D] in size.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system good for the environment?

With more and more people concerned about climate change, how we heat our homes and the damage it does to the environment is increasingly being questioned by British 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 installing a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system in your home be a positive contribution to the environment? The figures below will tell you more.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

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

The ERP, short for the Energy Related Products Directive, is a European directive aimed at encouraging manufacturers to create products that are environmentally friendlier at all stages, including during manufacturing, when the product is in active use, and right through to the point of final disposal.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 has a rating of "A" .

What length of warranty does the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 come with?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.
