The benefits of using an Ideal boiler

With an extensive range of heating products available, Ideal are one of the leading boiler manufacturers in the UK. This article will reveal the benefits and drawbacks of their boilers, to help you decide if Ideal, are the right manufacturers for you.

Value for money

Even with better specs, sometimes, Idea boilers are vastly cheaper than their competitors. As well as making a distinct saving on the unit itself, for a cheaper rate, you are likely to get a boiler with a higher output and a longer warranty period.

Well established brand

Ideal boilers have over 100 years of experience operating in the UK, helping them to refine their craft and produce high-quality heating systems. Not only does their UK heritage mean that there is an excessive amount of replacement parts available, but you also get a good level of customer service, because you can talk to a local representative and not one located on the other side of the world.

Dedicated Engineers around the UK

If you are experiencing problems with your boiler, then you can rest assured that Ideal, will ensure you receive help from a trained engineer, fully accustomed to your model. This is unlike many manufacturers, who outsource engineer callouts, potentially leaving you with someone that is not experienced with your model.

Ideal boiler warranty

When compared to rival brands, Ideal offer some of the longest warranty periods. Although, it is still important to check the information on each model, as the warranty length varies massively. This can be summed up by the fact that, when fitted and serviced by an accredited installer, the Vogue comes with a 12-year warranty. On the other hand, the Ideal Mexico only comes with 2 years cover.

Ideal boiler problems

No matter who the manufacturer is, all boilers have the potential to suffer problems. If this happens to your boiler, then an error code will appear on the display screen. This will allow you or a qualified heating engineer, to realise the issue and fix it. With that in mind, some of the more common Ideal boiler problems are:

No hot water

If your Ideal boiler is failing to produce hot water, then generally, it means that the flame has gone out on your system. There are a few reasons why this might happen including low gas pressure, a blocked flue pipe, a faulty gas valve or a damaged flue sensor.

When your boiler notices a problem, as a safety precaution, it will transition into lockout mode. If this happens then, you should firstly, check your gas supply is still running. Then, you can confirm that the boiler is plugged in and your electricity supply is working. If you cannot find the source of the problem, then it is best to contact a heating engineer.

Leaking boiler which is making gurgling noises

When the boiler’s pathway to the condensate pipe gets blocked with debris, then it can cause leaks. Luckily, by cleaning the blockage, this is a problem homeowners can fix themselves. However, if after removing the debris, the gurgling noises persist, then you will need to get in touch with an engineer, who can come and assess the situation.
