Ideal Vogue Max S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Vogue Max S18 - combi, system or regular boiler?

Suitable for a house or a flat, the Ideal Vogue Max S18 system boiler is worth considering if you want a system boiler.

System boilers work similarly to heat only boilers in that they need a hot water cylinder (usually installed in the home’s airing or landing cupboard) to operate. Unlike heat only boilers though, system boilers don’t require a separate cold-water tank, making them a more suitable choice in homes with little or no attic space or where homeowners are planning a loft conversion in the future.

Instead of large cold-water tanks, system boilers use built-in circulating pumps to provide hot water to your taps and radiators. This makes them easier to install from scratch as they have one less component to find room for and fit.

System boilers need to be programmed with the time you want heat and hot water - they don't offer hot water on demand like combi boilers.

Should I install a Ideal Vogue Max S18 system boiler in my home?

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.

Boiler output is measured in kilowatts and tells you how much power a boiler can use to heat the water your taps, showers and radiators need. The higher the output, the more power it has.

When choosing a boiler, you should choose one that can cope with the peak demand for hot water in your home and not just your typical usage.

If its output is too low, sometimes your hot water will not be hot enough, but if your boiler's output is too high for your needs, your gas bills will go up and not down.

The output of the Ideal Vogue Max S18 system is 18 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Vogue Max S18 System boiler be an appropriate choice for?

Most boiler engineers would recommend that a boiler with this output level would be most suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Ideal Vogue Max S18 dimensions

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 measures 740 mm in height and has a width of 445 mm and a depth of 330 mm.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max S18 condensing or non-condensing?

Condensing gas boilers like the Ideal Vogue Max S18 are more energy-efficient and choosing one for your home will cut the amount you pay every year for your gas.

They do this by capturing the heat in water vapour condensation and in exhaust gases which would normally be expelled via the flue. They then recycle that heat, returning it to the system to, among other tasks, reheat colder water that is returning to your boiler from your radiators.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max S18 system 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.

The power we need for our central heating systems accounts for around 14% of the UK’s greenhouse gas production. There are often dangerous levels of ambient nitrogen dioxide gases in the atmospheres of British cities because of our use of gas boilers.

Would the environmental impact of installing a Ideal Vogue Max S18 system in your home be positive? Let's look at the numbers.

All boilers manufactured and supplied in the UK must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least 92% (an "A" SEDBUK grade). This is higher than the previous 88%, which was a legal requirement prior to April 2018.

The energy efficiency rating is used to work out how much energy a boiler both uses and wastes when it's switched on and working correctly - its standard functioning and operation.

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 is rated as 93% energy efficient, equivalent to a "A" SEDBUK rating.

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) with the aim of ensuring that all manufacturers, including boiler manufacturers, developed more efficient products and processes.

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

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 has been given an ERP rating of "A".

If the Ideal Vogue Max S18 system boiler breaks down, am I covered?

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 10 years.

Ideal Vogue Max S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

What type of boiler is Ideal’s Vogue Max S18 - system, regular or combi?

Looking for a gas system boiler for your house or flat? If you are, the Ideal Vogue Max S18 boiler may be worth considering.

As with a heat only boiler, a system boiler requires the installation of a hot water cylinder but they do not need a cold water tank to work. This makes them suitable choices for homeowners planning a loft conversion or for properties without a loft or very limited attic space.

The primary heating and hot water system components are built in to system boilers and you can use the control panel to set the times that you wish your heating and hot water to be available. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day, but if you don't set your timer, heat and hot water will not be available instantly.

A system boiler can supply multiple taps and showers simultaneously and is suitable for both large families and properties with more than one bathroom - combi boilers struggle to do this.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max S18 system boiler from the Vogue Max range a suitable choice for my house or flat?

You should make sure that the boiler you choose for your property is the right "size". And size doesn't mean its physical dimensions. Size means how much power it has - the "output".

A boiler's output level measures how much power it can use to provide you with the hot water you need for your radiators and taps. If a boiler has a high output rate, it can heat greater volumes of water.

If you choose a boiler with too low an output, you'll find that the water coming out of your taps and in your radiators won't be as hot as you want it to be. Choosing one whose output is too high means you'll pay more than you need to for the gas your boiler needs to work.

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 system outputs at a maximum of 18 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Vogue Max S18 System boiler be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that this Ideal Vogue Max S18 System boiler be installed in smaller homes and apartments with one bathroom and up to 10 radiators.


The size of the Ideal Vogue Max S18

The size of the Ideal Vogue Max S18 boiler is 740 mm tall, 445 mm wide, and 330 mm deep.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max S18 non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that you choose a condensing boiler wherever possible like the Ideal Vogue Max S18 - try to go for the latest model, if possible, to take advantage of improving technology.

Condensing boilers capture and recycle the warmth still present in the water vapour condensation and in flue exhaust emissions created by burning gas to make them more efficient and economical to run.

You will save money on your gas bills too, plus condensing boilers are friendlier to the environment.

Is the system Ideal Vogue Max S18 boiler energy efficient?

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.

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 Max S18 system help in the fight against climate change? What do the performance statistics suggest?

In the UK, by law, all boilers manufactured since April 2018 must have a SEDBUK “A” rating and operate to a minimum level of 92% energy efficiency. Prior to this, the minimum was 88% – 88/89% would score a "B" and 90% or more an "A" on the SEDBUK scale.

The energy efficiency rating measures the amount of energy a boiler consumes when it's in use and how much it loses on non-core operations.

Following testing, the Ideal Vogue Max S18 was given an efficiency rating of 93% and a SEDBUK grading of "A".

The ERP (Energy Related Products Directive) is European legislation that aims to reduce the use of energy at all points during a product's life, from the point of manufacture to when it's in active use right through to final disposal.

The regulation aims to encourage manufacturers to create products that are more environmentally friendly and which reduce gas emissions associated with those products.

The ERP grading for the Ideal Vogue Max S18 is "A".

Am I covered if my Ideal Vogue Max S18 system boiler breaks down?

Parts and labour charges incurred for repairs made to your new Ideal Vogue Max S18 are covered by a 10 year warranty.
