Hi, my combi boiler needs to be replaced, i have had the following three recommended to me.
Baxi Duo-Tec 28, Potterton Gold 28 HE and Glow-Worm CXI 30.
Any advice on which is best would be greatly appreciated.
If you go for the Baxi/Potterton boiler make sure you have spare PCB's ready. They never seemed to last very long.( a problem that has been around for years) As for Glow worm they are ok untill they go wrong, their tech people are the most arogant to deal with.
Best service from boiler manufacture try Worcester Bosch.
The Baxi/Potterton range which gave great trouble from the PCB, was the Suprima/Suprema range, and featured on the BBC Watchdog Programme. They have since come up with a revised PCB.(The PCB was mounted on the RHS of the casing).
No other range has been remarked on, and the trade regards these 2 brands as easy to work on, and parts are easy to get and cheap.
Some HQ brands are so rarely worked on that parts supply and expertise, can be a problem.
