Any recommendations on an external oil combi boiler for a 5 bed house

I wouldn’t know the RRP for this boiler so can’t judge if it’s a good deal or not, seams a good price for a very good boiler.

For those not in the know, these are a million times better than any Worcester ( Worcester use plastic hydro blocks what crack / pin hole, rubber gas pipes and a aluminium heat exchanger, they are also awful to work on from what I’ve seen with poor placement the PRV and expansion vessels )

I'd go for a minimum of a 30kw boiler, obviously higher if you have a large house.

A 30kw will heat up your water with a decent flow rate.

Exactly as you describe in a boiler I had serviced.

Agreed.

I spent a small fortune on a "quality German engineered" Worcester Bosch boiler (35CDi) for my last house. We lived there for 4 years with it and had the heat exchanger replaced twice, thankfully under service cover. They told me it was £1400 a time to get replaced, so could have been crazy expensive if I had to do it myself.

My current house has a Baxi system boiler and is now 10 years old. It's cost me normal servicing plus a PCB a few years back. Not bad!

Oh
I've just had a new Worcester Bosch C30i installed to replace a 17-year-old Vaillant (which was on its last legs)
Luckily, there's a 10-year warranty with it
I also recently had a Worcester installed - I've only heard good things about them until now, but I suppose there will always be a few.

That being said, I'd seriously consider NOT getting a new gas system installed if I was getting one now, government plans to ban gas boilers and central heating in new properties built after 2025...

I feel the reason why Worcester are so popular is because they used to be reliable, but that was a long long while ago. Also they must have been selling them dirt cheap to the big nationalinstallers as British Gas and boxt seam to push them.

I’m not sure on there warranty policy, but you’ll probably have to get it serviced every year for it to be valid.

For new homes maybe, but there really isn't a viable alternative to gas or oil in older houses yet. Heat pumps will be the thing in new homes, but these require underfloor heating to work well. Retrofitting underfloor heating is a pretty expensive undertaking.
Similarly, I wouldn't trust most of the current shoddily built new builds to even do that properly, with underfloor piping likely to fail after around 10 years, leading to further huge expense..

Get it serviced at least every 3-4 years.
Sammy8611/03/2020 05:39

You will probably find that the warranty states it has to be serviced every year to keep the warranty valid.
Edit: from Worsecester Bosch warranty: "The product must be maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s user instructions and serviced annually, by a Bosch Thermotechnology Ltd or other competent engineer. Proof of servicing may be required to validate a guarantee."
Edited by: "jw021979" 11th Mar
Looks like a good deal but will probably need a beefier one for the house. Any thoughts on brands? Worcester Bosch is well known but not recommended by my plumber. In essence, I think we're all looking for a reliable one which will last and when it comes to servicing and parts, cheap to maintain.
For those in the know or have had baxi I wouldn't have again.Nothing but problems.Had Bosch in for the last 9 years and no issues.Many installers I have spoken to advised Bosch over baxi .
I had a Worsecester Bosch for 14 years and it broke at least twice every year (under BG homecare), Got a Vaillant now and it's only broke 3 times in the past 5 years (same diverter valve every time).

I'm not sure any of them are any good.

Don't get a combi...but if you must, I prefer Grant Vortex.

No boiler should break that often.
I bought a new build property, it came with an Ideal combi boiler which is really poorly reviewed. I've lived here 11 years now and only had to have it fixed 1 time and that was just the divert valve
14 year old baxi still going strong here, few minor issues over the years but only ever small quick repairs needed. Worcester in old house broke down every week.

I have had a WB boiler fitted 2 yrs ago, & this model came with a 10 yr warranty as long as it was fitted by one if their approved installer, flushed before installation, had a WD mag filter, WD flue pipe & serviced one a year by an WB approved engineer.
I am having the 2nd service done tomorrow by a WB approved engineer.
Service by WB is too expensive.

You're right. And much cheaper than Worcester.

lol here we go again. plenty of boiler experts here on hot uk.
Baxi or Worcester?
A standard (not combi) Ideal boiler installed here in Oct 2004, still going strong, only ever needed a fan to be replaced.
All I hear is that newer boilers aren't durable and need lots of maintenance

Judging by the comments in this thread, all are equally as good or as bad as each other, reliability wise

Like comparing excrement to cream. Worcester by a country mile. Or Vaillant.
Worcester Bosch system boiler and cylinder installed two years ago, prefer WB service despite the high cost. 10 years warranty on the boiler so don't care about the plastic components cause WB will replace them if they melt!! Expensive heating bills so far tho

our last ideal was in the property for 25 years and finally gave up the ghost after that long. I might add the previous owner NEVER serviced it either

Had a Baxi for about 10 years, but had many repairs tbh, got replaced with a Valliant recommended from our boiler man at the time, 2 years years ago, seems pretty good so far, probably not really long enough to tell, but it is pretty efficient. But there are other good brands out there it seems like Viessmann make high quality boilers, might be worth a look for some of you.

You say “ the government plans to ban gas boilers & central heating” then how will the new properties be heated etc? The whole of My central heating system needs to be replaced on a 1960’s property I have just bought, what do you guys recommend I should do? Thanks
