What’s the best boiler for your home?
Our combi range includes our award winning Ideal Boilers Logic Max Combi and the unrivalled premium Vogue Max Combi boiler. Both models come in a range of outputs meaning they can heat homes of various sizes.
A combi boiler is perfect for a small to medium sized property, providing mains pressure hot water on demand with no need for a hot water cylinder or feed/expansion tank. They are the full package in one compact unit supplying heat to your radiator system, and hot water. Combi boilers are extremely efficient as they only heat water when it is needed, reducing bills and your household’s carbon footprint.
System boilers are suited to homes with multiple bathrooms and can provide a constant supply of hot water to numerous taps at once.
System boilers require a cylinder to store hot water, however, they don’t require a feed/expansion tank, so they are ideal for larger properties with little or no loft space.
The Logic Max Heat comes with a 10 year parts and labour warranty and is compatible with a range of cylinders. Perfect for the replacement of most traditional boilers. Heat only boilers are perfect for homes with multiple bathrooms, or where there is a large demand for hot water at once.
They are often thought of as a traditional boiler. They work alongside a separate hot water cylinder which is usually found in an airing cupboard, and a feed/expansion tank often found in the loft, so they are ideal for homes that already have a heat only boiler.
What is the ideal size?
All of our boilers come in a variety of capacities, starting at 12kW all the way to 40kW. Which size you should choose for your home will depend on how many radiators you have and how many bathrooms you have. Assuming that your home’s insulation is up to current building regulations and your home is fully double glazed, our chart will help you understand which size of boiler would suit you and your families needs.
If you live in a brand new modern home, taking advantage of the latest energy saving technology with advanced insulation and well sealed doors and windows, your needs may be met by a smaller model. In contrast, if you live in a characterful, older property that is prone to drafts with single glazed windows and limited insulation a larger model could be required to heat your home effectively.
