I like the baxi platinum range of boilers; there one of the better’s type of boiler to install.

The size depends on how big your home is and how much hot waters you need.

Make sure you installer takes the time to size it and tell him about your plans for the house.

If you were thinking about adding more radiators later on, a bigger boiler would be a wise move.

But the output of the vaillant combi 824 is only 23Kw compared with baix which is 33Kw.

So you are getting about a 1/3 more power, which should deal with further needs.
