Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 is worthy of consideration if you're looking for a system boiler for your flat or house.

System boilers share many similarities with more traditional heat only boilers, like the need to program the times you want them to provide you with heat and hot water - just use the control panel to do this.

Where they differ from regular boilers is that they do not require a separate cold-water tank - everything is done within the hot water cylinder, which contains built-in circulating pumps. This makes them easier to install as there is one less component to fit and makes them more suitable for properties with no loft space, smaller lofts or for homeowners who are considering converting their loft.

As long as you have programmed your system boiler in advance, you will have the hot water you need ready for whenever you want to use it. Once the water is heated, it will remain available, warm, inside the tank until it’s all used up. It will then draw more water from the mains to start heating so that it can provide heat and hot water for the times you've told the system boiler you need it.

Is a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system 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.

Your boiler's output indicates the maximum amount of power available to it to heat the water you need to warm your radiators or when you want hot water from your taps. A higher output rate means that your boiler is capable of heating greater volumes of water.

If a boiler's output rate is too low, you'll often find that the water is not as hot as you want it to be. Too high, however, and you'll end up paying more for your gas than you should be.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system boiler has an output rate of 18 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe engineer would almost certainly recommend that this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System boiler would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 dimensions

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18's dimensions are TBC mm [H] x TBC mm [W] x TBC mm [D].

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

Condensing gas boilers like the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system boiler rated as 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.

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 choosing the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system help the environment? Let's see what the statistics 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 Vogue GEN2 S18 has an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grade of "A".

In 2015, the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) came into force. The legislation applies to all products that consume energy - in production, during their active life, and at the point of final disposal.

The ERP was introduced to incentivise manufacturers to create products that emit fewer harmful gases with the larger aim of protecting the wider environment.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 has been awarded an ERP rating of "A".

Will I be covered if the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system breaks down?

The manufacturer offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years on the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 boiler to new customers.

Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 boiler a combi, regular or a system 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 need a hot water cylinder to work but, unlike heat only boilers, they don't require a cold water tank. This can be advantageous if you live in an apartment, lack attic space, or are planning a loft conversion.

System boilers allow you to set the times when you want hot water to be available. Heated water is stored in the cylinder and can be used throughout the day. With a system boiler, if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for hot water.

The constant supply of hot water from the cylinder ensures that you can have multiple taps and showers in use without a loss of pressure to each point (something combi boilers struggle with). This makes a system boiler suitable for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

Should I install a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 system boiler in 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?

Most experienced heating engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 System boiler would be a suitable choice for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


What dimensions does a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 have?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S18 occupies a space of TBC mm high by TBC mm wide and TBC mm deep.

Is this Ideal boiler condensing or non-condensing?
