Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C40 a combi boiler, system boiler or regular boiler?

If you’re looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Ideal Vogue Max C40.

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.

Would the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi be a suitable choice of boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi 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 Max C40 combi outputs at a maximum of 40 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi boiler be appropriate for?

An experienced Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi boiler would be a suitable installation choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

In addition to the output rate, you should consider a boiler's "flow rate" (measured in litres per minute) when choosing a combi boiler.

If you have a lot of radiators and bathrooms in your home and members of your household want to use hot water at the same time (like morning or evening showers and baths), you'll need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

However, it's not that simple. Combis can only draw water from the mains at the speed it's delivered. Homes with higher than average demand for hot water, and particularly those in low mains pressure areas, may find that a combi boiler is not the right answer for them.

When our engineer comes out to quote you, they may recommend that you choose a heat only boiler or system boiler instead to better serve you and your family.


How large is a Ideal Vogue Max C40 boiler?

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 measures 740 mm tall, 450 mm wide, and 330 mm deep.

Ideal Vogue Max C40 – non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 is a condensing boiler – we recommend to all clients that they choose the very latest condensing boilers because their efficiency continues to improve year after year.

Condensing boilers recycle heat from both water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases via a secondary heat exchanger. With this heat, it performs other tasks like warming up colder water returning from your radiator without having to use more gas.

You will save money on your gas bills every year by choosing a condensing boiler as well as benefitting the environment.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi an environmentally friendly boiler?

With so many of us worried about the environmental impact of our personal choices, the relationship between how we heat our homes and climate change has become an important issue for 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.

If you decide to install a Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi in your home, will you be helping the environment with your choice? Let’s have a look at the figures.

All boilers manufactured and installed in the UK are required by law to have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92%, equivalent to a good “A” rating on the SEDBUK scale. Before this, the minimum was 88% (ratings of 88% and 89% are equivalent to a high “B” SEDBUK rating and anything 90% or higher is an "A" rating).

A boiler's energy efficiency rating is designed to let you know how much energy is used and wasted during normal functioning.

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a band rating of "A".

The ERP (or Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation affecting products that consume energy throughout their lifetime.

The aim is to encourage companies to create environmentally friendlier products that reduce harmful gas emissions during manufacturing and when in use by the end client, right through to their eventual disposal.

In the case of the Ideal Vogue Max C40, the ERP rating is "A" for heat and "A" for hot water production.

How many years does the warranty period cover on a Ideal Vogue Max C40 boiler?

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 boiler comes with a 10 year warranty for parts and labour.

Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C40 a combi, system or regular boiler?

When looking for a combi boiler for your house or flat, the Ideal Vogue Max C40 might be a suitable option for you.

Traditional boilers consist of one or more large tanks that take up a lot of space in people's homes. One tank heats water and keeps it warm and the other stores water for heating later.

In contrast, a combi boiler is a much smaller stand-alone unit. Instead of requiring water tanks, it draws cold water from the mains. When hot water is needed for a shower, for the washing up, or the dishwasher, the cold water is heated instantly by the boiler and distributed to where it is needed.

The main disadvantage of combi boilers is that there is a limit to how much water they are capable of heating at the same time. For instance, water pressure, volume and temperature will be adversely affected if more than one individual in the home needs hot water at the same time.

Would the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi be a suitable boiler for my house or flat?

Whether this Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi 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.

A boiler’s output is a measurement of the amount of power it can use to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. The higher its output rate, the more water it can heat.

If your new boiler’s output is too low, your hot water might not be as hot as you want it to be. If it's too high, you’ll be paying more for gas than you need to.

The output of the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi boiler is 40 kW, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi boiler would be a suitable choice for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.

If you are thinking about installing a combi boiler like the Ideal Vogue Max C40 in your home, you should consider flow rates as well as output rates. This Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can heat up and send to your radiators, taps and showers at any one time. The more taps and showers that could be in use simultaneously or the greater the number of radiators you have, the higher the flow rate you need.

However, you should establish what the mains pressure is at your property as a combi boiler can only heat the water that comes into your home.

For example, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, your boiler can only heat and distribute hot water at a rate of 12 litres per minute even if it has a higher flow rate capacity. Typically, a power shower will require 10 litres of water per minute.

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 are the dimensions of the Ideal Vogue Max C40 boiler?

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 is 740 mm tall, 450 mm wide, and 330 mm deep in size.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C40 non-condensing or condensing?

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 is a condensing gas boiler - we strongly recommend that you choose one of the latest condensing models if possible.

With a condensing boiler, you save money on your gas bills because your boiler captures and recycles the heat present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation for re-use, meaning they operate far more economically and efficiently.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi environmentally friendly?

Concern for the environment is causing more and more homeowners to think about how they heat their homes and its impact on climate change.

We generate 14% of UK greenhouse gas emissions through centrally heating our domestic properties. Gas boilers are mainly responsible for harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions in larger British cities.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi an environmentally friendly choice for your home? Let’s have a look at the figures.

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 Max C40 scored an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of A.

The Energy Related Products Directive grades products according to the energy they consume and the harmful gas emissions they create, from manufacturing right through to final disposal, including how they're used by customers between these two points.

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 is rated "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What is the warranty period on a Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi boiler?

Parts and labour charges incurred during a repair on the Ideal Ideal Vogue Max C40 boiler are covered by a 10 year warranty.
