The Ideal Vogue Gen2 System boiler doesn’t require a hot water tank, but it does need a water cylinder if you don’t already have one. There is a range of sizes – for smaller homes with one bathroom, all the way up to larger homes with multiple bathrooms. The combi boiler heats water directly from the mains and doesn’t require a tank or cylinder. However, it will struggle to provide hot water to homes with multiple bathrooms simultaneously.
This is an affordable model when compared to other equivalent brands and offers high performance.
This boiler has an A ErP rating and operates at 93% efficiency – so you can be sure that your energy bills will stay low with this model. If that’s not enough, the Ideal Vogue Gen2 has been endorsed by the Energy Saving Trust – a marker of industry-recognised commitment to energy efficiency.
This boiler is available in both combi and system models. The latter works by heating the water in your central heating system as well as by storing hot water in a domestic cylinder. When it comes to using water – it means that hot water is always available when you need it, even from different parts of your home simultaneously. The combi model is fantastic for efficiency as it only heats up hot water when required.
