Ideal Vogue S26 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Is the Ideal Vogue S26 a system boiler, a combi boiler or a regular boiler?

The Ideal Vogue S26 is a system boiler you may wish to consider if you want this particular type of boiler for your house or flat.

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.

Is a Ideal Vogue S26 system a suitable choice for my house or flat?

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 S26 system is 26 kW, so which types of property would this Ideal Vogue S26 System boiler be appropriate for?

A Gas Safe boiler installer would recommend that, at this level of output, the most suitable type of property for this Ideal Vogue S26 System boiler would be larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


The dimensions of the Ideal Vogue S26 are

The Ideal Vogue S26 is 740 mm tall, 445 mm wide, and 330 mm deep.

Ideal Vogue S26 – non-condensing or condensing?

We recommend that, if possible, you choose a condensing boiler like the Ideal Vogue S26.

Condensing boilers are more energy-efficient. They achieve this efficiency by capturing the heat present in flue exhaust gases and water vapour condensation and recycling that heat to, for example, warm colder water coming back from your radiators.

By choosing the latest condensing boiler, you'll also notice a significant reduction in your gas bills, particularly if you're replacing a boiler more than 15 years old.

Is the system Ideal Vogue S26 boiler energy efficient?

How we heat our homes has become a major issue for many people worried about climate change and environmental issues in general.

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.

Would choosing a Ideal Vogue S26 system help the environment? Let’s see what the performance figures suggest.

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 S26 was awarded an efficiency rating of 93% with a SEDBUK grading 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 right through to final disposal, with the aim of reducing harmful gas emissions.

The Ideal Vogue S26 is rated "A".

Will I be covered if the Ideal Vogue S26 system breaks down?

The Ideal Vogue S26 is supplied with a parts and labour warranty of 8 years.

Ideal Vogue S26 System Gas boiler frequently asked questions

Ideal Vogue S26 - a regular, combi or system boiler?

The Ideal Vogue S26 may be worth considering if you are looking for a system boiler for your house or flat.

If you choose a system boiler, you'll have to find somewhere to install a hot water cylinder too - they're normally located in an airing or landing cupboard. However, unlike regular boilers, they do not require a cold water tank to be fitted in the attic, making them suitable for homes with limited or no roof space or if you're planning a loft conversion in the future.

System boilers distribute the hot water to your taps and radiators using (often built-in) circulation pumps and are easier to install from scratch since they have one less component (the water tank) to consider.

System boilers also require programming to produce heat and hot water, so they cannot produce this instantly. Nonetheless, the cylinder keeps water hot for use later, so you don't have to wait as long as you set your timer and keep it on long enough to heat enough water.

Is a Ideal Vogue S26 system boiler appropriate for my house or apartment?

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 S26 system is 26 kW kilowatts, so which types of property would this be appropriate for?

An experienced PlumbProud Gas Safe boiler installer would almost certainly recommend that this Ideal Vogue S26 System boiler would be most suitable for larger properties including detached homes with 15 or more radiators and two or more bathrooms.


How large is the Ideal Vogue S26?

The Ideal Vogue S26 measures 740 mm tall, 445 mm wide, and 330 mm deep.

Is this Ideal boiler non-condensing or condensing?

We always recommend to clients that they select the very latest condensing boiler for their home.

Condensing boilers like the Ideal Vogue S26 are more efficient with the gas they use in operation, meaning that you'll benefit from lower fuel bills. Condensing boilers are also better for the environment.

They achieve their efficiency by capturing and recycling the heat still present in the water vapour condensation and flue exhaust gases created when a boiler burns gas to get the energy it needs. It then reuses that recycled heat to perform a number of tasks, including heating the colder water that comes back to your boiler via the radiator.

Is the Ideal Vogue S26 system boiler environmentally friendly?

With environmental issues in the spotlight, more and more homeowners are becoming concerned about how they heat their homes and how much they're contributing towards combatting climate change.

In the UK, central heating is responsible for 14% of greenhouse gas production. Domestic gas boilers emit large quantities of nitrogen dioxide in British cities.

Will installing a Ideal Vogue S26 system be a positive contribution to the environment? Let's see what the experts say.

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 S26 was awarded an efficiency rating of "93%", equivalent to a "A" rating on the SEDBUK system.

The Energy Related Products Directive, also known as ERP, is European legislation that intends to reduce energy consumption related to products right from their initial manufacturing process through to eventual final disposal.

The purpose of the directive is to encourage manufacturers to create new products that are kinder to the environment and which result in lower overall harmful gas emissions through a product's entire life cycle.

The Ideal Vogue S26 has a rating of "A".

What is the warranty period for the Ideal Vogue S26?

Ideal offers a parts and labour warranty of 8 years on the Ideal Vogue S26.
