non QPR: Boiler advice 13:39 - Oct 5 with 1799 views1MoreBrightonR

The boiler has gone and the plumber has recommended a Ideal logic 30kw condensing combination boiler. The brand has some dodgy feedback but he says this particular boiler is great for the money and a few plumbers online say the same, though as always there are some individual horror stories. comes with a 7 year warranty.

Anyone had any experience?

We swapped out an eight year old Glo Worm combi boiler as it had become unreliable and kept losing pressure before eventually having the motherboard pack up. We looked around and spoke to a number of plumbers and heating engineers and they all said the same thing, get a Vaillant or Worcester so we ended up with a Vaillant eco Tech slightly more powerful than we actually needed so it doesn't work flat out ever. We have had it six years now and not a bit of trouble, all we have ever had to do was top up the water pressure (2 little taps under the body of the boiler) just over 2 years ago and that is it. Nothing but praise for it.

The grass is always greener.

Had a Worcester Bosch condenser for about 7 years now and it's been excellent. Efficient, quiet, economical.

I hope that doesn't put the kiss of death on it!

The first question is - how big is your house?

With a 30 you're talking maximum 3 bed house with one bathroom.
Going up a couple of Kw's should only set you back an extra £200.00 odd but it gives you ar greater capacity
I went 39Kw at our house just to ensure decent capacity of HW flow in the winter - got one bathroom, one ensuite and just added a downstairs khazi so glad I did

Ideal are fine in my book - can't recall the name of the manufacturer where Ideal is basically the same as but it's a surprise.

Worcestor Greenstar's are over-rated in my book and Valliant are considered the top of the range but at the end of the day you're relaint on factory build quality.
Go for the longest warranty and also consider (if they're still doing it) British Gas 5 or 3 star cover.

Here for a good time..... not a long time

Worcestor were doing 10 year warranty with Approved Installers a while back I think - ask!

If you're a two bed mid terrace then I'd say 28Kw is ample

You'll also be recommended a magna clean etc, etc, etc. Some people swear by all the add on's. I just go for a good service each year of the boiler (not the wife)

Do check your dimensions of current boiler versus the replacement, especially if it's in a cupboard plus another consideration is flue routes

I'd also get it done asap. In two weeks time Gas Engineers are going to be flat out and charging a bit more !!

Had a new Vaillant for years, never let us down. Easy to top the water pressure up to using the metal flexible hose when the dial says it's getting low. Worth getting one for over capacity as suggested above so it's not working flat out all the time.

He already is flat out...soonest he can install it is in 2 weeks! going away for a few days thankfully but even still, going to be a long few weeks.

Its a 5 year warranty now which is a shame as the Ideal one is longer.
