Ideal Heating notice of 1 February
We have been notified by Ideal Heating that they have identified a potential issue with several of their Combi and System boilers, installed between August 2022 until 7 January 2024.
In a small proportion of boilers (approximately 1 in 10,000), if an excessive volume of air has become trapped inside the boiler in a fault condition, it could cause the boiler to overheat and fail.
Ideal Heating is identifying which boilers are affected by their serial number and will let us know so we can directly contact those customers whose boilers are affected about next steps. This will include an additional part that will need to be added to the affected boilers, it will not affect the performance or efficiency of your boiler.
You can continue to use your boiler as normal. However, Ideal Heating advise you repressurise your boiler to 1.5 Bar. Instructions for how to do this, can be found on their dedicated webpage www.idealsupport.co.uk
Ideal Heating has confirmed you can continue to use your boiler as normal - you don’t need to turn it off.
