We had an Ideal Esprit HE35 installed in Dec 2008. In less than six months the board had fried (PCB 174486). Since then we have enjoyed plenty of hot water as well as heating when required until now. The boiler died again and again it is the board that has burned out. When working it gets top marks but because of the problem with the board we wish we'd chosen a different boiler as 2 boards in under 2 1/2 years to us is unacceptable and a costly experience… Read Full Review

This boiler came with parts missing, could not get past customer service to get it sorted, eventually managed via a friend to get one of their engineers to visit and fix missing part.

This boiler most unreliable I do not recommend it. We are… Read Full Review

Very good value for money, this Ideal Esprit HE Combination Boiler saves good money against its rival quality class, this being Vaillant and Worcester. Very quiet running as it has insulated inner panels. On CH you can barely hear the unit. Pre-heat on or off function. This boiler is a total change from Ideal. You can tell that Quality is first and last in the mind for the installer. Built in loop as standard, telescopic flue, built in bypass, optional rf stats… Read Full Review
