Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 - combi, system or regular boiler?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 boiler is a system boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

Like regular boilers, system boilers have a control panel that you use to program the times of the day when you want hot water to be available or the central heating to come on, such as in the morning when several people will be having showers or baths.

Once the water is heated, it is stored and kept warm in a hot water cylinder during the hours you've programmed. Hot water cylinders are often installed in an airing or landing cupboard and they contain built-in circulating pumps whose job is to heat water drawn from the mains.

System boilers do not need a cold-water tank like heat only boilers, making them a popular choice for homeowners who want to save space and those who are considering a loft conversion in the future. They're also easier for heating engineers to install, as they require one less large part. Instead, they use built-in circulating pumps.

Would the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

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 GEN2 S26 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 26 kW?

A Gas Safe engineer would recommend that the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system boiler would be an ideal installation option for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


What are the dimensions of the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 boiler?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 measures TBC mm tall, TBC mm wide, and TBC mm deep.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Ideal Vogue GEN2 gas Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 for your home if possible because of the environmental benefits and the money you'll save on your gas bills.

Condensing boilers are much more energy-efficient than older, non-condensing models as they capture and recycle the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases that your boiler creates when burning gas for reuse.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system an environmentally friendly boiler?

With more and more of us concerned about environmental issues and climate change, how we heat our homes has become an important issue to many homeowners.

14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production comes from central heating. In the bigger cities, gas boilers in particular are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would choosing a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 GEN2 S26 has been given a rating of 93% for energy efficiency, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" rating.

The Energy Related Products Directive intends to encourage all manufacturers to reduce harmful gas emissions connected to the products they make, from the manufacturing stage to final disposal, including when they are in active use.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 has an ERP rating of "A".

What length of warranty does the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 come with?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Which category of boiler does the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 fit into?

Looking for a gas system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 boiler may be worth considering.

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.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system boiler from the Vogue GEN2 range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

To determine that, we need to consider the size of the boiler. However, size doesn't refer to how big a boiler is - it means the size of its "output".

Your boiler’s output is a measurement of the power it has available to heat the volume of water required for your taps and radiators. The higher the output rate, the more water it can heat.

You need to be careful to select a boiler with the optimal level of output for your property though. That's because, if your boiler output is too low, your water and radiators will often not be as hot as you want them to be. If the output is too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System boiler be appropriate for?

Most Gas Safe boiler installers would suggest that the most suitable type of property for installing this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System boiler in would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Where will the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 fit in my house?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 measures TBC mm high and TBC mm wide by a depth of TBC mm.

Vogue GEN2 S26 – non-condensing or condensing?

We strongly recommend that you choose a condensing boiler like the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 - 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.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

How we heat our homes is an issue which many homeowners worry about as the world combats climate change and environmental damage.

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.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system boiler an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Here’s what the figures say.

The energy efficiency rating for a boiler describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes during operation and there are two different ways to measure it.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must have a SEDBUK rating of “A” subject to a minimum energy efficiency score of 92% or above. Before April 2018, the minimum energy efficiency score was 88% (88/89% = "B" SEDBUK rating, 90%+ = "A" SEDBUK rating).

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive's aim 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 S26 is "TBC".

If the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years following installation.
