Hi there i'm just wondering if anyone got any advice for me, I'm thinking of forking out for a new boiler (as advised by plumber) there Greenstar 24i junior looks okay so i just wanted to know if anyone's have a new boiler done recently and how much i should look to spend...

My current Halstead one keeps locking out and it's gonna cost £380 to repair plus there's no guarantee so i'm not sure what to do...

any help would be appreciated

thanks

Is it a worcester greenstar? If it is, they are very good boilers, well the oil ones are anyway.

Is it oil or gas you've got?
#2

and yep gas

Vailants were what were recommended to us when we had to have a new boiler

Vaillants are also very good gas boilers, if it's a like for like replacement, you could be looking at anything between £1600 to £3000 for a new bolier

bloody hell. my idea is to buy one myself then get someone qualified to install it...would it work out cheaper you think?

Dude have you been recommended that boiler by your plumber?
How many radiators do you have in your house?
Worcesters are probable the top boilers out there and ive neva heard of any1 having any major problems with them.
That boiler will probable set you back about 700/800 quid if its the combi your after,and say a 100 for a flue but all depends really.

Which Halstead do you have? They really have improved in quality over the last 5 or 6 years. We installed a Halstead Ace HE 30 combi condensing boiler nearly 3 years ago and have never had any trouble nor are we expecting any ^^ Also only cost £700.

Take the opportunity to do something much more sensible long term. If your property is reasonably well insulated don't install a boiler at all but put in an air-source heatpump. You wont use any more oil or gas but with approx £500 of electricity annually, you'll get all your heating and domestic hot water, plus you'll get £2,400 back in grants currently.

Halstead Ace High i think it is...its about 7-8 years old now...think it was one of those cheap ones from wicks or b&q. I've herd loads of people are having problems with it locking out..and lucky you £700 inc installation?

I paid £1480 for a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 28i fitted and the old boiler removed. Just 12 months back, British Gas quoted £3650 for there equivalent boiler (which is the same just rebadged as British Gas) EON qouted £2300 for the same boiler.

Hope this helps.

It was a local plumber/heating engineer in Bolton. I can give his contact details if you require them.

I had a new Worcester Bosch 30CDi (NG) Boiler fitted last month. Including moving the boiler, converrting my internal plumbing to work to work with a combi boiler (ie including removing old loft tank, thermostat cylinder etc - and all copper work plus 6 TVR sets) for £1700 Came with a 2 year warrenty too. The boiler alone is just under a grand - so was a excellent price to get this convertion and fitting.

I also had a water inhibitor and ferrite cleaner installed (cost for parts is about £90), new radiator fitted, loo removed, shower fitted, for an extra £250 on top. A absolute steal in MHO.

Got the guy off "mybuilder.com" and I couldnt recommend highly enough. This is the company website. Well worth giving them a call if you are within 100 miles.
