Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

Looking for a gas combi boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Ideal Vogue Max C40 boiler may be worth considering.

Combi boilers provide hot water or heating for your home on demand. You just need to turn the tap to get hot water or switch on the radiator and you’ll feel your home warm up within minutes.

In contrast, traditional boilers required either one or two large storage tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm and the other to hold cold water for later heating. If the immersion tank was empty, it wasn’t uncommon to wait up to an hour for enough hot water to fill a bath, for example.

Combi boilers draw cold water from the mains and then heat it instantly whenever it's needed, all from one small unit.

The one disadvantage to combi boilers is that, if more than one point is in use at any one time (for example, if someone is taking a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere in the property), water pressure, temperature and volume drop to both points.

Is a Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi boiler suitable for my house or flat?

It's best to choose a boiler whose size or "output" is right for your property. With boilers, however, size does not mean how big a boiler is, it means how much power it has.

The output of a boiler is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power it has available to heat the water it sends to your hot taps, showers and radiators. The greater the demand for hot water in your home, the larger the output you will need.

It is important to select a boiler with the optimal output rate. Choose one with too high an output and your gas bills will be too expensive. Choose one with too low an output and sometimes the water in your radiators and coming out of your taps will be barely lukewarm.

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

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

You'll also need to be sure to choose a combi boiler with the right flow rate for your home.

The flow rate indicates the maximum volume of hot water (measured in litres per minute) that your boiler can distribute at any given time. This means that if you and your family are likely to be using several taps and showers simultaneously or you have a lot of radiators, you need a boiler with a high flow rate. This Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

As with all combi boilers, the Ideal Vogue Max C40 is only able to heat and distribute water at the rate at which it actually enters your property.

For this reason, you shouldn't purchase a boiler with a very high flow rate if the flow rate in your mains pipes is lower because the extra capacity doesn't mean it can draw more water from the mains pipes.

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.


Dimensions of the Ideal Vogue Max C40 boiler

Ideal’s Vogue Max C40 is 740 mm tall, 450 mm wide, and 330 mm deep.

Vogue Max C40 – condensing or non-condensing?

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 is a condensing gas boiler - in fact, we recommend that you select this model or one of the latest condensing boilers on the market as the technology continues to improve over time.

Condensing boilers capture the heat still present in the flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation created when the gas is burned and they recycle this back into the heating system to warm up the cold water re-entering the boiler from your radiators.

They're much more environmentally friendly and installing one results in much lower annual gas bills.

How does the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi rate environmentally?

How we heat our homes has become a pressing issue of concern for many homeowners worried about climate change and the environmental impact of their personal choices.

Central heating creates 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gases. And in Britain's larger cities, gas boilers are responsible for dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide emissions.

Would installing the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi in your home be an environmentally friendly decision? Let's look closely at the figures.

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 has been awarded an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

In the UK, all boilers manufactured and supplied must have an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% or a SEDBUK "A" grade. Until April 2018, the minimum rating was 88% (88% and 89% are equivalent to a SEDBUK "B" rating and anything higher is rated "A").

A boiler's energy efficiency rating describes the amount of energy it uses and wastes when in normal operation.

Energy-efficient boilers help the environment as they require less fuel and emit fewer harmful gases. In 2015, the EU introduced the Energy Related Products Directive (ERP), the aim of which was to ensure that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

The legislation aims to conserve energy at all life cycle stages from initial production to actual use by the customer, through to the point of disposal.

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 has been given an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for water.

What length of warranty does the Ideal Vogue Max C40 come with?

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 boiler is covered by a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 is a combi boiler you may wish to consider if you want this type of boiler for your house or flat.

Combi boilers provide hot water or heating for your home on demand. You just need to turn the tap to get hot water or switch on the radiator and you’ll feel your home warm up within minutes.

In contrast, traditional boilers required either one or two large storage tanks to work - one to heat and keep water warm and the other to hold cold water for later heating. If the immersion tank was empty, it wasn’t uncommon to wait up to an hour for enough hot water to fill a bath, for example.

Combi boilers draw cold water from the mains and then heat it instantly whenever it's needed, all from one small unit.

The one disadvantage to combi boilers is that, if more than one point is in use at any one time (for example, if someone is taking a shower and another person turns on a hot water tap elsewhere in the property), water pressure, temperature and volume drop to both points.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

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 Max C40 combi is 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.

When choosing a combi boiler like the Ideal Vogue Max C40, you need to consider the "flow rate" as well as the output rate. Flow rates (measured in litres per minute) indicate the volume of hot water that the boiler can heat up and then distribute to your taps and radiators.

However, combi boilers draw water from the mains and this means they can only heat the amount of water that actually enters your property.

What this means is that, if your mains pressure is 12 litres per minute, that is your boiler's effective flow rate even if it has the capacity to process 18 litres per minute. This Ideal Vogue Max C40 Combi boiler's flow rate is 16 L/m.

To give you an idea of the flow rate you might need, a power shower typically requires around 12 litres of water per minute and a basin tap requires 4-8 litres 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 size is the Ideal Vogue Max C40 boiler?

The dimensions of the Ideal Vogue Max C40 are 740 mm [H] x 450 mm [W] x 330 mm [D].

Is the 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 boiler an environmentally friendly choice?

How we heat our homes and the damage this does to the environment has become a pressing concern for many homeowners worried about the effects and impact of climate change.

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

Under current UK law, all boilers must achieve a minimum energy efficiency level of 92% (a low to good SEDBUK "A" rating). The minimum level was raised from its previous 88% in April 2018.

Energy efficiency scores are intended to inform consumers of the amount of energy used and wasted when a boiler is in normal operation.

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK band rating of "A".

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

The Ideal Vogue Max C40 has an ERP rating of "A" for heat and "A" for hot water.

If the Ideal Vogue Max C40 combi boiler breaks down, am I covered?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Ideal Vogue Max C40 are covered by a 10 year warranty.
