Help - I need a new combi boiler and have a few quotes to choose from. They are all within £250 of each other but I need to choose which boiler to go for.
I had narrowed it down to the Vaillant EcoTec Pro 28kW or the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 28i. Out of the blue, British Gas have come up with a very competitive quote for their "British Gas 532 High Efficiency Boiler" which is a apparently a re-specced Worcester Bosch. It has a higher flow rate of 13 l/min (versus 11 l/min) and a separate control that allows you to adjust the water temperature (e.g. to limit the hot water temp if your kids are having a shower). Not surprisingly, it's the most expensive quote but I'm trying to figure out if it's worth the extra £200 odd. Any help/suggestions much appreciated...
[quote="htg engineer"]Vaillant are very good - so if the BG boiler is more expensive then it's definitely not worth it, neither is BG installation prices or their Homecare packages.
Vaillant and Worcester are very good. I'd go for the Vaillant.
Vaillant and Worcester were the two on my original list. I know BG boilers used to be bad (was it Glow Worm they used to rebadge?) but their new range is made by Worcester for them and has a higher spec than the other two. The Vaillant is about £50 cheaper than the Worcester so I think I'll take your advice.
