On top of the boiler expense, you’ll have to pay for the installation as well.

It’s always a good idea to ask each company or installer for a fixed price that includes both the boiler and installation.
How will I know if this Boiler is Suitable for My Home?
The Vogue Max Combi is a combi boiler (or combination boiler) and does not require any extra parts, such as a cold water tank or hot water storage cylinder. Because they can provide heating and hot water all by themselves, combi boilers are commonly found in flats and houses where space is restricted. As combi boilers provide instant hot water and only heat the water you use, they’re also very economical. When it comes to the Vogue Max Combi series, there are three models available to suit the needs of small, medium and even large-sized homes.
It’s so important that you choose the correct type of boiler for your home, which is why we always recommend you consult a Gas Safe registered engineer prior to making a purchase. Whilst giving you advice on the best boiler type, your chosen engineer can also let you know the right heat output (boiler size) for your property and requirements.
Is it a High Efficiency Boiler?
Yes, the Ideal Vogue Max Combi is ErP compliant for both heating and hot water and has a SEDBUK rating of 91%. So, if you go on to select this boiler, you’ll get an A-rated product that can save you some cash on your annual fuel bills and help to reduce your carbon footprint at home. Further energy and cost savings can be made when you chose one of Ideal’s optional controls or accessories. The brand’s most popular control option is the Alexa compatible Touch Connect app-controlled thermostat that can be controlled using a smartphone.
Does this Boiler have a Good Range of Controls and Features?
This boiler does have a good selection of controls and large rotary dials that are concealed behind a cover, along with a 3.5-inch colour backlit LCD display with graphics and plain text. If the boiler develops a fault, the display will show a fault mode and offer text support for your engineer as well. There’s also a service timer and display, which is designed to let you know when your annual service is due. Additionally, the boiler has built-in frost protection, a user-friendly pressure gauge and a high-quality Ideal system filter.
