Ideal Vogue Max S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 boiler is a system boiler you may wish to consider when looking for a new boiler for your house or flat.

System boilers share many similarities with more traditional heat only boilers, like the need to program the times you want them to provide you with heat and hot water - just use the control panel to do this.

Where they differ from regular boilers is that they do not require a separate cold-water tank - everything is done within the hot water cylinder, which contains built-in circulating pumps. This makes them easier to install as there is one less component to fit and makes them more suitable for properties with no loft space, smaller lofts or for homeowners who are considering converting their loft.

As long as you have programmed your system boiler in advance, you will have the hot water you need ready for whenever you want to use it. Once the water is heated, it will remain available, warm, inside the tank until it’s all used up. It will then draw more water from the mains to start heating so that it can provide heat and hot water for the times you've told the system boiler you need it.

Is the Ideal Vogue Max S18 system boiler suitable for my house or apartment?

Whether this Ideal Vogue Max S18 System 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 S18 System boiler be appropriate for given its output of 18 kW?

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.


Ideal Vogue Max S18 - size in millimetres

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 measures 740 mm in height by 445 mm in width by 330 mm in depth.

Is this Ideal boiler 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.

What energy efficiency ratings have been awarded to the Ideal Vogue Max S18 system?

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.

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.

Would choosing a Ideal Vogue Max S18 system help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

An energy efficiency rating of 92% or above is a legal requirement for all boilers manufactured and installed in the UK today. 92% is equivalent to a low-to-middle "A" grade on the "Seasonal Efficiency of Domestic Boilers" (SEDBUK) scale.

Energy efficiency measures how much energy a boiler uses and wastes in the course of its normal operation. The lower the waste, the lower your gas bills.

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 was awarded an efficiency rating of "93%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

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 S18, the ERP rating is "A".

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

Ideal offers a parts and labour warranty of 10 years on the Ideal Vogue Max S18.

Ideal Vogue Max S18 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

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

If you’re looking for a system boiler for your house or flat, you may wish to the consider the Ideal Vogue Max S18.

System boilers require a hot water cylinder to work (normally stored in an airing or landing cupboard) but, unlike heat only boilers, they do not require a cold water tank. This makes them more suitable for homes that do not have lofts, where attic space is limited or where a loft conversion is being considered.

You program your heating and hot water to come on via the control panel. But if you forget to set the timer, you will have to wait a while for the water to heat up. Hot water is stored in the cylinder for use throughout the day and can be distributed to multiple showers and taps at the same time without a loss of pressure or temperature (something combi boilers really struggle with). For this reason, a system boiler is a suitable option for large families and homes with more than one bathroom.

As no cold-water tank is needed with a system boiler and many major system components are built into it, this type of boiler can be easier to install than a standard boiler.

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

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 Max S18 system is 18 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

A PlumbProud boiler engineer would recommend that this Ideal Vogue Max S18 System boiler is suitable for smaller homes and apartments with up to 10 radiators and one bathroom.


Dimensions of the Ideal Vogue Max S18 boiler

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

Is this Ideal boiler condensing or non-condensing?

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 is a condensing gas boiler - we’d strongly recommend that you choose the very latest condensing model for your home.

Condensing boilers run on either gas or oil and are manufactured specifically to improve energy efficiency. They do this by capturing and recycling the warmth present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation into more usable heat the system can use, meaning they're far more efficient and cost less to run.

How energy efficient is the Ideal Vogue Max S18 system 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.

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.

Will choosing to install a Ideal Vogue Max S18 system in your home help the environment? Let's review the figures.

Boilers manufactured in the UK must be tested and, by law, achieve an energy efficiency rating of 92% or above, equivalent to a SEDBUK "A" grade. Most boilers achieve an "A" rating meaning they are at least 88% efficient.

The energy efficiency of a boiler indicates the amount of energy it uses (and wastes) during operation.

The Ideal Vogue Max S18 has been assigned an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK rating of "A".

The Energy Related Products (ERP) Directive is important European legislation that aims to limit energy use and harmful gas emissions during the manufacturing process, when the product is in use, and after it is disposed of.

For the Ideal Vogue Max S18, the ERP Heat rating is "A".

Does the Ideal Vogue Max S18 system boiler come with a warranty?

A parts and labour warranty of 10 years is included with the Ideal Ideal Vogue Max S18 boiler.
