Most modern boilers are relatively quiet in operation, but the Ideal Logic has been awarded a Quiet Mark accreditation due to operating at 44 decibels.

This is great news if you have a smaller home and your boiler is going to be installed near to living space. No rude interruptions during that tense moment in a scary film!

Ideal Logic Energy Saving Trust Endorsed

Ideal Logic Plus System Boilers – You’ll need a hot water cylinder for these

Ideal Logic Plus system boilers offer exactly the same as the combi boiler range in terms of performance, reliability, and warranties but they are more suited to a larger home with higher hot water demand.

This is where the Logic range ensures that it is a boiler to cater for as many homes as possible in the UK. If you currently have a system boiler with a hot water tank then you can just replace your boiler unit. If not, Ideal does offer hot water cylinders at an extra cost.

Ideal Logic Review Verdict – A great value boiler that’s reliable and easy to use

I think it’s pretty obvious from the awards and accreditations that the Ideal Logic boiler is a good boiler. Bigger companies than us have slapped their name alongside it, and to be fair could render this whole review pointless as you may have already made your mind up just on that basis, but here are our scores out of 10…

ideal logic energy saving

Ideal Logic Performance – 8/10

The Logic boiler does its job well. It’s reliable, quiet, cheap to run, and futureproof with it being H2 ready. It just lacks that finesse at the moment, with dials to change temperature and no WiFi built-in like others in the same price bracket.

A good boiler, but it just could ideally do with some more up-to-date features to help match its reliability.

Ideal Logic Reliability – 9/10

A proper stalwart of the boiler world, the Logic combi boiler seems to have been around since the dawn of time, and that’s why it’s still going. It’s reliable to the hilt, and if anything does go wrong it’s cheap and easy to fix.

Ideal Logic Boiler Price – 7/10

ideal logic which

When it comes to price the Logic plus is in the mid-range price bracket at around £1,800 including installation. Considering the other boilers in the market at the same price, it has a bit to find. You get far more for your money with the Worcester 4000 for around the same price. 

Ideal Boiler 7 Year Warranty Reviews – 7/10

The warranty of the Logic Plus is 7 years. Which when compared to other boilers for the same price that have the same and better features leave something to be desired also. 7 years is good, it’s just not good enough for the price you pay. 

Ideal Logic Boiler Reviews Overall Score 7.5/10

We haven’t really got anything bad to say about the Ideal Logic Plus boiler, it is only when you compare it to other boilers in the market at the same price that the numbers don’t add up.

If you are adamant that you want an Ideal Logic then we wouldn’t tell you not to, we just think you should take a look around before you buy. It has the accreditations, but it’s not these companies that are spending their hard-earned money on a new boiler for your home.
