Ideal Vogue Max System

The Ideal Vogue Max System is a premium quality condensing boiler that has been built using only the best components.

If you’re in the market for a powerful system boiler that promises excellent comfort and efficiency, the Ideal Vogue Max System could be a contender for your small, medium or large-sized home. This compact and easy to install boiler has a good build quality and features some impressive parts for optimum all year round performance. It’s marketed as a gas condensing system boiler but can be converted to LPG if required, making it a suitable option for properties that are either on or off the gas grid.

How Much Does this Boiler Cost?

Ideal’s Vogue Max System can be purchased with an output of 15kW, 18kW, 26kW or 32kW, so you must find out which kW output you require before parting with any money. Prices vary according to the heat output and range between £920 and £1,210 including VAT. This means the higher the output, the more expensive the boiler will be. You’ll also need to factor in the fitting cost, which can cost more than the boiler itself. It often pays to shop around because some companies and installers offer competitive deals on both the boiler and installation.

How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?

This offering from Ideal is a condensing system boiler, so it requires a separate cylinder for storing hot water. System boilers tend to be best for homes with more than one bathroom because they can handle high hot water demands. If you have a large house and greater demands for heating and hot water, you’re probably going to need the 26kW or 32kW unit. Small to medium-sized households with lower demands should steer towards the 18kW or 15kW model. This is just a rough guide, though.

If you want to know whether or not the Ideal Vogue Max System is the perfect solution for your home, you’ll need to get some advice from a Gas Safe registered engineer. In addition to being able to tell you the correct boiler type for your home, a qualified heating professional can advise you on the right heat output (size or model) for your property.

Is it a High Efficiency Boiler?

Yes, it is. The Vogue Max System has an ‘A’ ErP efficiency rating, meaning it should help to reduce carbon emissions and save you a chunk of money on your annual fuel bills. If you currently have an older type of boiler and decide to replace it with this efficient condensing model, substantial energy savings can be made. Not forgetting that the boiler can be used with a selection of Ideal’s optional controls and accessories, all of which can provide additional energy and cost savings.

Does this Boiler have a Good Range of Controls and Features?

The user controls are decent and include large rotary dials that are hidden behind a damped opening control cover. There’s a 3.5-inch colour backlit LCD display that shows graphics and plain text, along with full text support to make things easy for your engineer if the boiler develops a fault. You can even add your engineer’s telephone number into the system, which will come up on the service display each time the boiler needs its annual service. Ideal’s Vogue Max System also comes with a pressure gauge, built-in frost protection and a top-quality Ideal system filter.

How long is the Warranty on this Boiler?

You’ll get a superb 10-year parts and labour warranty as standard with the Ideal Vogue Max System. This can be extended to 12 years provided the boiler is installed and serviced by a Max Accredited installer.
