Ideal Vogue Max C32 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your flat or house? Then the Ideal Vogue Max C32 may be an option you should consider.

Traditionally, boilers needed one or more large tanks installed in your property to store their heated water or water that was to be heated later. These tanks were often too large to be practical for most homes so the combi boiler was introduced to Britain in the 1970s by manufacturers to help homeowners overcome this issue.

Instead of using tanks as storage, a combi boiler heats water on demand. It draws water from the mains and heats it instantly on demand before distributing it to wherever it is needed in a property, be it your taps or radiators.

Unfortunately, combi boilers have one main disadvantage for larger properties or larger households. Because they have a maximum volume of water that can be heated on demand at any given time, water pressure, volume and temperature will drop if, for example, someone is taking a shower and another person in your home wants to use a hot water tap at the same time.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C32 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 Max C32 combi boiler has an output rate of 32 kW, so which types of property would this be suitable for?

Most heating engineers would recommend this Ideal Vogue Max C32 Combi boiler as a suitable option for medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

With combi boilers, flow rates are as important a consideration as output rates.

All combi boilers draw water from the mains. They then heat this water instantly whenever it's needed and distribute it to your radiators and taps.

A boiler's "flow rate" describes how much water a boiler can draw from the mains at any one time, which it then heats and sends around your home (measured in litres per minute). This Ideal Vogue Max C32 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

If your home has a large number of radiators, a lot of bathrooms, or multiple people who wish to use the hot water at the same time, your combi boiler may not be able to draw as much water from the mains as it needs to serve everyone, regardless of how high the flow rate is.

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.


What is the size of the Ideal Vogue Max C32?

The measurements of the Ideal Vogue Max C32 are 740 mm by 450 mm by 330 mm.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C32 a non-condensing or condensing boiler?

We recommend that you select a condensing boiler like the Ideal Vogue Max gas Ideal Vogue Max C32 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 Max C32 combi environmentally friendly?

As more of us become concerned by the effects of climate change, the damage we do to the environment by heating our homes has emerged as an important issue for many homeowners.

As much as 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production derives from our domestic central heating systems. Gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in Britain's largest cities.

Will you be helping the environment if you decide to install a Ideal Vogue Max C32 combi in your home? Let’s 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 Max C32 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with 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, right through to the point of final disposal.

The Ideal Vogue Max C32 has a rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

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

The Ideal Vogue Max C32 boiler comes with a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Ideal Vogue Max C32 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is the Ideal Vogue Max C32?

The Ideal Vogue Max C32 is an option you may wish to consider if you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat.

Combination or combi boilers are highly efficient and save a lot of space in your home. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap and, as a result, you don’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water tank in the roof space.

These boilers are, therefore, suitable for smaller homes and especially those without a loft. They are also cost-effective as the water is heated instantly and distributed on demand rather than being stored. Combi boilers are the most popular type of boilers in the UK and replacing an older boiler with a new combi boiler will reduce your gas bills significantly.

However, there are downsides to this type of boiler. If you take a shower while someone else is using a tap, less water will reach each point of usage at lower rates of pressure and temperatures as combi boilers can only heat a certain volume of water at any given time.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C32 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Ideal Vogue Max 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 Max C32 Combi boiler be appropriate for given its output of 32 kW?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Ideal Vogue Max C32 Combi boiler would be medium-sized homes and larger apartments with 10-15 radiators and two bathrooms.

You need to consider the flow rate as well as the output rate when choosing a combi boiler.

Flow rates, measured in litres per minute, indicate how much water your boiler can heat and distribute around your home at any given time. If your family regularly use hot water around the house at the same time and you have a lot of radiators, you should choose a boiler with a high flow rate. This Ideal Vogue Max C32 Combi boiler's flow rate is 13 L/m.

However, you also need to consider the flow rate of your local mains water supply. Combis can only draw water from the mains as fast as the pipes can deliver it. If you choose a boiler with a 14l/m flow rate and the mains pipes into your home have a flow rate of 12l/m, your boiler won't be able to operate at full capacity. In other words, try to make sure the local water pressure and your boiler flow rates are as close as possible.

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.


The dimensions of the Ideal Vogue Max C32 are

The Ideal Vogue Max C32 is 740 mm in height, 450 mm in width and 330 mm in depth.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C32 non-condensing or condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Ideal Vogue Max C32 are environmentally friendlier and cheaper to run so, if possible, we strongly recommend that you choose this or one of the very latest models.

Condensing boilers are much more efficient and economical to run because they contain a secondary heat exchanger that captures and recycles the warmth still present in the flue exhaust gases and the water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning that they use less gas to run.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C32 combi boiler rated as environmentally friendly?

The effects of climate change on the environment are leading many homeowners to question the damage they might be doing by the way they heat their homes.

Dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger UK cities are caused by gas boilers in domestic properties, and 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production is as a result of central heating.

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

All new British boilers must perform to a legal minimum energy efficiency of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). Prior to April 2018, the target was 88% (86-90% = SEDBUK "B" and 90%+ = SEDBUK "A").

Efficiency ratings are intended to let consumers know how much energy a boiler uses in its day-to-day activities and how much energy goes to waste.

The Ideal Vogue Max C32 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93%, equivalent to a SEDBUK grade 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 Max C32 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

How many years' warranty does the Ideal Vogue Max C32 combi come with?

The parts and labour warranty on the Ideal Vogue Max C32 covers all repair-related costs for 10 years while the heat exchange warranty covers you for [Heat Exchange Warranty] years.
