Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

Like heat only boilers, system boilers need a hot water cylinder to work - they're normally installed inside an airing or landing cupboard. However, since system boilers do not require a separate cold water tank, they are popular with homeowners who are planning to convert their loft or where attic space is already at a premium.

They're able to distribute the hot water you need to taps and radiators through (often built-in) circulating pumps and, because there's no water tank to install, they're easier, quicker and cheaper to install than heat only boilers. To get the heat and hot water you need when you need it, just use the control panel to program the times and days you want.

Is a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system boiler suitable for my apartment or house?

Selecting the right boiler for your property means selecting a boiler that is the right size. And, by size, we don't mean how big it is, we mean how powerful it is - the "output".

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts. The output level determines the maximum power a boiler can use in heating the water needed for the baths, showers, taps and radiators in your home.

It's important to choose a boiler with an appropriate level of output for your property. Your boiler should be able to cope with periods of peak demand in your property and not just your average usage.

An output rate that is too low will result in an inadequate supply of hot water, while an output that is too high will mean the boiler will cost more to run than is necessary.

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

A PlumbProud heating engineer would recommend that this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System boiler be installed in larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Making space for the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 is TBC mm [H] by TBC mm [W] by TBC mm [D] in size.

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

Because of their increased energy efficiency, we recommend to all customers that they select one of the latest condensing boilers. Condensing boilers capture the heat from water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases and recycle that heat to warm water entering the boiler (for example, from your radiators).

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 is a condensing gas boiler and choosing this model will result in a likely substantial reduction in your fuel bills, particularly if you're replacing an older, inefficient, non-condensing boiler.

How energy efficient is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system 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.

Nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities are at dangerous levels and this has been caused by gas boilers. In fact, 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases are produced by central heating.

Would choosing the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system boiler be an environmentally friendly decision? Here's what the figures say.

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 GEN2 S26 was given a 93% energy efficiency rating and a SEDBUK grading 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".

Does a Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system boiler come with a warranty period?

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty lasting 10 years.

Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 boiler a combi, system or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, then the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 is one you may wish to consider.

System boilers are suitable for larger homes where there is a higher-than-average demand for hot water and heating.

Through their use of a hot water cylinder, they provide hot water on demand during the day - as long as there's enough water left in the cylinder. Just let the boiler know when you want hot water for your radiators and taps via the programming panel and, subject to tank size and household usage, it'll be there for you.

Unlike heat only boilers, there is no requirement to find room in the attic for a cold water storage tank. System boilers are therefore quicker, easier and cheaper to install.

Is the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system boiler a suitable choice for my property?

Whether this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System 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.

The output level of a boiler tells you how much power it has to heat the water coming from your taps and warming up your radiators. The higher the output level, the greater the volume of water it can heat up.

If the output (measured in kilowatts) is too high, you'll pay higher gas bills and your water will be piping hot. Too low and the water coming out of your taps and being fed into your radiators will often be lukewarm.

The Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 system outputs at a maximum of 26 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System boiler be appropriate for?

Most experienced Gas Safe engineers would likely recommend that, at this level of output, this Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 System boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


Dimensions of the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 boiler

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

Is this Ideal boiler condensing or non-condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the system Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 boiler energy efficient?

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.

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

All boilers manufactured in the UK from April 2018 must achieve a SEDBUK “A” grade and an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above. Before that, the minimum was 88% - efficiency ratings of 88% and 89% were scored a “B” and 90%+ an "A".

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes how much energy it uses and wastes during its standard operation.

The energy efficiency of the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 was rated at 93% with a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) intends to reduce the amount of energy consumed by individual products over their entire lifetime, from the initial manufacturing process to final disposal and at all points in between.

The legislation is designed to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which result in a reduction in harmful gas emissions.

The ERP rating for the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 is "A".

What warranty do I get if I purchase the Ideal Vogue GEN2 S26 boiler?
