Ideal Vogue Gen2 Key Features

Highly Endorsed

The Vogue Gen2 has received widespread recognition by some of the big players in the heating system and appliance endorsement market such as Which?, Good housekeeping, and the Energy Saving Trust.

LCD Colour Display

A backlit 3.5” LCD display screen allows homeowners to easily monitor and control the settings on this top of the range combi.

Frost Protection

The Vogue Gen2 is fully equipped with built-in frost protection technology, this reduces the risk of component malfunction or failure due to very low temperatures. Cold weather complications account for a huge number of boiler unreliability or breakdown issues, this often results in service or repair fees.

Compact Size

The Ideal Vogue Gen2’s advantageous compact design allows a powerful and efficient combi boiler to easily fit into small storage spaces, such as a standard kitchen cupboard. The Vogue Gen2’s lightweight frame, weighing just 30.7 kg, is perfect for homes aiming to be economical with space.

Stainless Steel Heat Exchanger

This integrated component is made from the ideal material to prevent corrosion, and provide a robust and durable functionality in order to improve the efficiency of the Vogue Gen2.

Ideal Boiler Quality

As a market leader, the Ideal brand boasts an ‘Excellent’ 4.8/5 star rating on Trustpilot, having been reviewed over 20’000 times! The constant recognition as evidenced by awards and endorsement from both consumers and industry sources, only confirms the success of the Ideal brand and its products. 

Combi Boilers

Ideal’s vogue range also includes conventional system boilers, however, it is combi boilers that have been the model in which Ideal has excelled in recent years, garnering public plaudits and industry accolades alike.

Benefits Of Combi Boilers

Unlike conventional boilers, combi (combination) boilers link a home’s central heating system and water heating; no separate hot water tank is needed which is cleaner as it avoids potential rust or debris build up while providing instant hot water. This allows a compact boiler which could fit into a standard kitchen cupboard or be wall mounted, to thoroughly heat a home without stealing lots of space. Combi systems are also easier to service or for boiler replacement due to their popularity, meaning greater availability. 

How Much Does The Ideal Vogue Gen 2 Cost?

Prices for the Vogue Gen2, just as with any modern combi boiler, vary on the chosen output size, vendor, installation rate and job related specifications. Prices for the Vogue Gen2 can range from £1,225 - £1,354 (not including installation).
