Valliant or Vessman Boiler?


Postby Bryncoch » Tue Jul 15, 2008 11:55 pm

Hi all - we're having to replace our Alpha boiler as its been condemned. Our boiler is in an outhouse, accessed by going outside. We want to leave it there but want a boiler that allows us to control it without having to venture outside.

We've had quotes from two Corgi registered chaps (both recommended) which includes portable thermostats.

One has suggested a Valiant echo-tech 824 (the quote was for £2100 inc VAT and labour and parts to include flushing out system, fitting it and adding thermostats to radiators etc - comes with 2 year warranty).

The second has suggested a Vessman (the quote was £2050 inc VAT and labour and labour and parts to include flushing out system, fitting it and adding thermostats to radiators etc - comes with 5year warranty. This prive also includes some extra work re. a dishwasher).

We've looked on various sites and have seen more things about Valiants but are attracted by 5 yr guarantee on Vessman as we'll be living here for more than 2 years.

Any thoughts on which one we should go for?

Thanks

Vaillant's are good boilers, good quality and tend to last forever.

Haven't had much to do with Viessmann boilers but if they're offering 5 years warranty they must be good, and if installed correctly you have 5 years with no worry or hassle.
