New Boiler Replacement: Baxi Platinum Combi 33kW HE A. Good boiler?
Hi guys, any decent heating engineers here for some advice who can help me?
My old folks boiler, Jaguar Protherm 23kW KTVJ Combi, made by Glow Worm/Hepworth Heating for Plumb Centre just over 13 years old is not working efficiently especially the hot water is turned on but the central heating is working perfectly fine 24/7. There is occassional hot water but you have to restrict the flow to a small stream to get any decent hot water.
Checked the energy performance on this old boiler & only SAP 2005 seasonal efficiency (%) 78.7 which is poop by today's standards. Time for change & save on gas use?

However, my old folks insist on new boiler anyways & so after weeks of searching, decided on this Baxi Platinum Combi 33kW HE A model that comes with 10 years warranty. Good choice?
Got a quotation for £1575.00 inc VAT all in for below for straight swap, same location, no to very minimal pipework needed in 3 bedroom 2 floor end terrace house. Good price? Too much? Can I go cheaper?

Btw, not sure of the Inline Softner??? due to living in hard water area. Is this worth the extra fitted? Will this damage the boiler over prolong use?
I could source the boiler & all the parts at retail cost but how much would the average fitting cost will be? I'm happy to pay only the labour only to fit & validate Gas Safe? I don't want to be ripped off with silly prices.
Any help will be appreciated, thanks.
