Combi Boilers

Ideal offer a full range of boilers. But as combi boilers are the most popular boiler type in the UK, we thought we’d tell you more about this range.

All ideal combi boilers have a compact size, so they are perfect for homes with limited space. Plus, their quiet locations means they can be installed almost anywhere! One of the most popular choices is the Logic + combi. The Logic + range has become well-known, due to its reliability and its high-efficiency performance. It also appeals with its provision of a 7 year parts and labour warranty. In fact, the Logic+ range- which includes combi, heat and system models- won a product of the year award within the Household Boiler category. This is the first boiler in the UK to have won this prestigious consumer award!

The logic combi is also a popular choice. They are designed to be installed simply and quickly and also come with a 2 year parts and labour warranty. This range is recommended by the Energy Saving Trust. They have also been recognised by awards- in 2013 it was awarded the Queen’s Award for enterprise in Innovation.

Considering the costs:

Investing in a new boiler is a big decision and the initial costs can have a huge impact on which boiler you choose. Ideal boilers range in price from about £590-2,200. The price will depend on the type and size of boiler your home needs.

However you shouldn’t just consider the initial costs. After all there is normally good reason why some boilers appear a lot cheaper than the rest. Cheaper boilers are more likely to break down and pose danger risks. Thus, buying from a slightly more expensive but well trusted name- such as Ideal- is generally recommended.

So, when looking at boiler prices, try not be immediately tempted by the low £. There are some things worth spending a little more money on, and we think boilers are one of them! The costs and burden of constantly arranging boiler repairs and having temperamental heating and hot water will soon exceed any anticipated savings.   


All Ideal boilers are provided with warranty. The length depends on your chosen boiler. In order to qualify for the warranty, you must make sure you register your boiler within 30 days of installation. You also need to have it serviced annually by a qualified professional. Breaching either of these conditions, will invalidate your warranty. These are common conditions for all boiler warranties. We strongly recommend you always find out your provider’s conditions and ensure you comply with them.
