Don’t forget ‘Boiler plus’ building regs so you’ll need to add weather or load compensation or ‘smart’ controls to comply

Personally I wouldn't recommend or install one of these.
I would pay the extra and get something better with more warranty like a baxi 624.

£30 for a weather compensation device (just a sensor that monitors the temperature of the outside temperature)

26 kw ain't massive, I've just had a 30kw (ideal) fitted and I live in a 2up2 down terraced. Also 2 year warranty doesn't give you massive peace of mind, I got 10 years with mine, although it cost twice as much. Just a thought.
If you’re going to get a boiler and want something decent and reliable only one brand to buy...good ol’ Worcester! prime example of buy cheap buy twice something like this.

£300 more at screwfix ( or 54% more expensive ) but of course has a far longer guarantee.

I’d say whoever has fitted it has done a poor job then. Mine was 22 year old before it got replaced and it was replaced mainly due to efficiency more than anything but suppose nothing is perfect....

I would have a Worcester either. Like a car some like ine other like another.
For the money this is fine but I would expect any decent service if it brakes down.

The man in the factory who built it did the bad job - I imagine your 22 year old one was good, just like many brands were good before we became a throw away society

That was when Worcester was a great boiler. The old ones were excellent. The new one..... No thanks.
Agree, used a lot in Europe as well. Each to their own of course but in this day and age every make is made to a budget and not designed to last 22 years as they used to - that's the problem with this throw away society, but thats why its £485 (bearing in mind £85 of that price is just damn tax), that's nothing in this day and age for a combi boiler. If you are that worried about reliability after the the 2 year guarantee just get a British Gas discounted boiler service contract but even thats going to cost you £360 a year, you may as well put the £30 away each month and buy another new one if it had a serious breakdown.

That 10 year guarantee, is it parts and labour or just parts ? Indesit give you a 10 year guarantee on their washing machine parts but the labour cost is £199 for each repair.

Agreed. Our Vaillant was fantastic - it was serviced five years after install and still looked brand new inside. It’s genuinely the one thing I miss from my former home
All Ariston boilers use the Giannoni stainless steel heat exchanger (used by Vaillant Group in their Vaillant and Glow-worm models) Worcester have an aluminium heat exchanger.

Your boiler is desperately oversized for the size of your house.

Go Intergas, only 4 moving parts and 10 years warranty. Best boiler no one buys
"Stylish" ... erm, ok.
I'd go for a Volkvort...

Peep Show aside, my newly-built home came with an Ariston boiler. Lasted four trouble-laden years before being condemned. Total piece of hot garbage. Been running a Worcester for over 10 years now and mostly okay...at least the boiler engineers know what it is and can get the parts for it within a couple of hours should they need anything. It's only ever needed a fan in that time and I have never serviced it (oops!)

I have an Intergas Combi, 10 year parts and labour warranty, no diverter valve, diverter valve motor, secondary plate HEX or automatic bleed valve so less to go wrong. You can even get hot water when there’s no water in the CH circuit

Volkvorts are great but you need to wack the temp up to 29degrees to speed it up
Basically, given all the comments here, there’s not really one that’s better than the other! Everyone has different experiences with all the brands mentioned including Ariston.

Give me strength, you oversize a combi for the hot water performance not the heating demand, the heating modulates down to the demand.

I bought a Worcester boiler and installation with 10 year warranty from Boxt last year. I'm very happy till now...
My old Olympic Thorn boiler is still going strong.
Installed in 1986 and the only thing I've had replaced is thermocouples over the years.
Agree with Valliant though. When the Olympic finally dies that will be my next boiler.
Did a job at their training centre a few years ago and the place oozed quality and the training rooms were all fitted out with equipment, boilers, parts etc.
Yeah, I know that's what you'd expect to see at a training centre like this but really emphasised how much they invest in service and repair should it be needed.

I put a Ariston boiler in 8 years ago. Worked fine when it broke down called a ariston specialist out and he was surprised it had lasted and said they don’t last much more that 5 years (and he spends all day working on them)
