The Ideal Logic2

Just like the first Ideal Logic model, but with advanced features! The best part about the new one is that it’ll be sold at the same price as the original Ideal Logic. Here are some of the new advanced features to get to grips with: 

Ideal Logic2 Advanced Features

Bigger and sharper screen

The Ideal Logic2 has a larger, higher resolution screen that allows the heating engineer to navigate the boiler settings easily- with the newly added ability to scroll back through the menu for more efficient installation and servicing.

Better access to the pressure relief valve (PRV)

The pressure relief valve (PRV) has been moved for easier access allowing for quicker replacement, and a new push-fit PRV connection has been added, removing the need for soldering or a compression fitting, increasing engineer efficiency.

Green filling loop handle

The new green handle on the filling loop makes it easier to guide you through repressurising your boiler over the phone, which means you’ll be able to repressurise the system without an engineer call-out.

Fixed flue turret seal (Combi and System boilers)

Logic2 now has a flue turret seal that is fixed in place. Why is that important, you may ask? The fixed flue turret seal stops the rubber seal from being knocked during installation – which sometimes happens. This new feature will reduce the risk of a broken seal leading to flue gas recirculation into your boiler, so you won’t have to book an expensive engineer call-out to fix it.

Other Key Benefits for The Ideal Logic2

  • An improved service timer can be set to run for longer without a service notification. 3 different service length options are available for up to 61 weeks.
  • Improved customer experience – Ideal Logic2 user guides come in 6 different languages with QR codes directly linked to each language.
  • Simplified packages for easy installation – Logic LPG kits have been combined into 4 kits. There is now a kit for each kW output (18, 24, 30 and 35kW).
  • More sustainable – Ideal heating removed ALL single-use plastic bags from the hardware pack and replaced them with clearly labelled compartments for each connection and a biodegradable washer bag.

Link Remote Monitoring Solution

Ideal Logic2 gives you control over your heating system, thanks to its smart Link Remote Monitoring Solution.

How does the Ideal Link Remote Monitoring Solution work?

It allows 2-way communication between your boiler, Link Cellular module and the Partner Portal Powered by Link, so you can access real-time information about your Logic2 boiler, i.e. performance data, fault codes, etc.

This is particularly handy if you’re a landlord with multiple properties.

1. The Link Cellular

The Link Cellular can be installed with an OpenTherm controller such as Halo Lite or Halo RF to offer you the greatest insight into your full heating ecosystem, allowing you to see current and target room temperatures.

2. The Link Portal

The new Link Portal is a brilliant way to manage your boilers easier and more efficiently. 

Your boilers’ data (including fault codes) is sent directly to the cloud. This allows the data to be accessed by a number of user accounts such as Admin, Installer and You (the user).

As you can imagine, this is a landlord’s ultimate dream as they can automate their properties’ heating ecosystem.

Through the Link Portal, you’ll be able to:

  • See your boilers’ health data (all grouped in one place), including service dates, and you’ll also get fault notifications.
  • Get instant information from each boiler (i.e. performance data and fault codes). You can also reset the boiler remotely (when safe). 
  • Access previous boiler data records to track its performance over time. The data will be presented in an easy-to-read format like charts.

Ideal Logic2: The Final Verdict

The Ideal Logic2 combines the reliable performance of Ideal boilers with the innovative functionality landlords need to manage multiple properties. It’s the perfect choice for landlords and tenants.
