Any recommendations for a cheap combi boiler?


Postby fix » Wed Mar 19, 2008 2:15 pm

Hi i live in a 2 bedroom terrace which has one boiler for hot water and one for central heating,they are both twenty years old not very good and are costing a fortune to run!

Im hoping in a couple of months to replace these for one combi boiler,if i can afford maybe a condenser

Im guessing as my house is relatively small and i have 6 radiators a 24kw boiler will do fine

But i am on a budget and want to spend as little as possible but still want a reliable and efficient boiler

Ive see quite a few combi boilers on ebay for around the £450 price range some that condense and some that dont,and all come with atleast a 15 month guarantee.

Can anyone advise me of a decent boiler around that sort of price range?


Thanks!

MAIN are cheap and are bascially a Baxi boiler, remember you get what you pay for.

You cant legally fit anything but a condensing boiler now

Thanks for the reply

Yes i agree with alot of things you get what you pay for! But if i can find a quality product at a price i can afford im all for it!

Ive had a look at Baxi/Main and they seem very reasonable at the £550 mark for a 25 kwh output

I take it these are a trusted brand that can be relied on? cheers :D

Baxi boilers are cheaper to buy and cheaper for parts compared to other manufacturers. And if installed correctly and well maintained will last as long.

They're also well designed for maintenance - evrything is accessible and this saves on labour time and labour costs.
