The Logic selection of boilers is Ideal’s mid-range product, providing the consumer great value for money also additional features than more basic ranges such as the Esprit range.
The Ideal Logic range consists of three models:
- The standard model, the Ideal Logic
- The next model up including an enhanced LCD display screen, the Ideal Logic+
- The top model with a quality brass system filter and further controls, the Ideal Logic Max
The Logic is an award-winning combination boiler, providing both heating and hot water directly from the mains without the need for a water tank, and is available within three sizes depending on the property requirements; 24 kW, 30kW and 35kW.
The smaller of these boiler sizes would be most suited for small properties with one bathroom, whereas the medium or larger sized unit would have sufficient output power for medium-sized properties with more than one bathroom and water outlets.
In order to obtain the most efficiency from the boiler, the correct size must be determined.

In addition, the water pressure within the property will also have a part to play as to whether a combi boiler is suitable for the property. Should you have any questions regarding which boiler size and type would be most suitable for your property, consult a qualified heating engineer.
