The Ideal Classic Range
Ideal has continued to expand and adapt its Classic range for almost two decades keeping it a firm favourite for installations.
The original Ideal Classic was first launched in 1991. After a revamp in design the Classic SE was marketed in 2001 and was an upgrade of the original design.
The key aims of the Ideal Classic SE are to provide reliability and simplicity of construction, backed up by a reputation for high quality standard-efficiency boilers within a well branded range.
The Classic SE has gained its reputation for reliability due to its simple design and engineering. This has resulted in appliances that are easily installed and that require minimum servicing and maintenance.
The cast-iron construction and the availability of various output types make the Classic SE versatile enough to slot into most existing systems or to be used in conjunction with a new build in which a wall mounted standard-efficiency boiler is key. The Classic SE is specifically engineered for use in fully pumped or gravity systems as a fan flued, wall hanging boiler.
Since 2005 a change in regulations has seen SE boilers becoming replaced by HE models such as the Ideal Classic HE 15 Regular.
The Ideal Classic HE range is a high-efficiency development of the Classic SE collection. It is SEDBUK band B rated, with a one year manufacturer’s guarantee. Ease of installation and servicing has been retained and all the boiler models are fan-flued products with fixed outputs for simple operation.
The standard model is the Ideal Classic HE 15 Regular Boiler. It is attractive with a compact design, simple controls and quiet operation, which means it can be sited anywhere in the house. The Classic HE Condensing Regular Boiler has also been developed for new housing or older systems where replacement boilers or boiler upgrades are required.

Ideal Boiler Warranty
Every boiler manufacturer offers a standard warranty with their boilers which last between 1-10 years. The warranty is your insurance policy and means if a fault develops the manufacturer will resolve it within a specified time frame. Some warranties include both parts and labour while others may only cover parts. The most important thing to remember is to get your boiler serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer every year as failing to do so is likely to invalidate your warranty. For more detail about this brand’s warranty (including the small print) take a look at Ideal Boiler Warranty.
Ideal Boiler Repairs
Even the highest quality boiler can develop faults and problems as they age. Some are minor issues you may be able to handle yourself but most will need a Gas Safe registered engineer to diagnose and repair the problem. To find out if there are any common problems associated with this manufacturer you can read our guide to Ideal Boiler Repairs & Common Ideal Boiler Problems.
Ideal Error Codes
Error codes may appear on your boiler’s display; it’s your boiler’s way of telling you that something is wrong. Each manufacturer uses a different coding system to help an engineer to diagnose a fault. In some cases it may be a simple issue such as low pressure which you can adjust yourself but more technical faults will certainly need a professional. We’ve put together a list of error codes for all Ideal Boilers to help you understand what’s wrong before you contact an engineer.
