Boilers have an output for heating & hot water so various things are taken into consideration. On a basic level u calculate the output from all your radiators ( btu) and make sure the boiler can supply that much . Then based on how many showers/ hot water taps u have u would look at the flow rate of hot water .
Other factors that will effect the choice of water is the incoming cold water pressure. Then comes the location , u need an adequate sized gas pipe , a drain to run a condensate pipe too and somewhere the flu can terminated to let out the gases .
I dont know anything about the company above , but your better off inviting local plumbers with experience & a good reputation to quote for the job and explain what & why u need things .
A power flush is a must prior to installing a new boiler . Gets the old gunk out .
U want somebody good to do it , because a badly installed boiler will give u problem after problem

Yes, basically the bigger the house the more powerful a boiler you need to power all the radiators.
You also need a higher flow rate for a larger house, and for more bathrooms.

The wizard takes you through the process pretty well, but I compared the spec against the boiler I'm replacing and just made sure the one I chose had a similar power and flow rate.

Worcester Bosch have a calculator on their site. Basically it’s 3kw per living room and 1.5kw per bedroom + eke for hot water.
rad sizes can be calculated similarly and tallied up.
That’s a good price.

That's right different boilers dependant on your house size, size of family and what is going to run from it. In my case I could have just had a 24 or 25kW as I live in a 2 bed flat on my own, but chose a 29kW to give plenty of capacity as I have a thermostatic shower. If the shower was electric I might not have had the larger model. But just like tv's bigger is usually better and the larger boiler is often not much more expensive as a lot of the cost is in fitting, which is the same for both.

Check prices with local plumbers as they are often cheaper unless you are looking for finance, although the price above sounds fairly good for a bosch and the nest thermostat.

I should say I checked the price with my plumber and he couldn't get near it.

Really wanted to use Boxt to get a new boiler, but they were pretty clueless with regards to the smart thermostat side, they kept trying to say that Nest is homekit compatible (when it’s not fully compatible). And they don’t really offer any discount to minus the option of the Nest thermostat

Of course for what OP gets as they just quoted me £2450 for the job I had paid £2k two years ago (using the same Ideal boiler).
I got a quote from a local company to replace like for like boiler in the same location. £4000 - 2 days labour

We used boxt last year for our new boiler. Price was great and really happy with the service, booked in the job on the Saturday, and boiler arrived Monday 8am and engineer arrived 9am. Was slightly sceptical about the reviews although my experience spot on. Just had the boiler annually serviced by the same guy who fitted the boiler, he gave me his number after I asked for it incase needed any work/jobs doing in the future, and he came one evening after work to do the service (important to maintain the 10 year warranty). Highly recommended if anyone is in need of a boiler quickly fitting.
Recommend boxt had my boiler from them last year wasn’t sure at first as its all online but went ahead and was all good

Most combination boilers will power 90% of houses you need the bigger heat output(30kw) to heat the hot water. Self employed plumber myself this is a cracking deal and one that one day will put many folk out of business

That's a joke. I had a conversion to a combi boiler (used to have a water tank), moved location from downstairs kitchen to the upstairs airing cupboard including Ideal Logic 30 boiler with 7 years warranty and labour all in for 2k (2 years ago).
Our house was built in around 1712 and I think the current boiler was installed then! Lol

Not quite but it’s a seriously old Ideal Mexico and it’s in the middle of the house on a middle floor in a cupboard.

So a replacement boiler for us wouldn’t just be a case of taking the current one off a wall and replacing it with another.

How would that work (or not) with these guys?
£4k for me for conversion from standard to combi for a 40kw Bosch and located in loft

If you go through to the website, it has those questions on the quotation list. A simple yes no questionnaire. It lists moving boiler same room or to another room. It works your quote out based on how you answer the questions. Seems a really good website and asked all the right questions, well for me anyway

Why wouldn't they be able to take the old one off and put the new one on?

You can specify a new location. I've asked to get mine moved from kitchen to utility room, and the website automatically calculated £300 extra, based on barely any information. I actually don't think they can do it as it will be a nightmare getting the various services to the new location

I used online chat to talk this through - basically if they can't move it we can discuss options, I'll probably just end up keeping it in the same place, and they'll refund me the £300.

After I put my order through it's asked me to submit some pictures of the boiler location and pipework.
One thing that is slightly off-putting about Boxt is on their website it says...

What do I do if my boiler breaks down?

Don't panic. Get in touch with your boiler manufacturer and they'll send an engineer out as soon as possible. All BOXT boilers come with a manufacturer's guarantee of up to 10 years.

So if they come and fit a boiler - and a few days later it stops working - they think they can fob you off by telling you to contact the manufacturer????

Not all just Bosh comes with 10 years warranty. My quote with Ideal boiler was with 7 years warranty. And yes manufacturers provide the aftercare service. After my Ideal boiler was installed I have received a letter from a company (don't remember the name) on behalf of Ideal with 7 years warranty plan. Person who does the job for you gives your details to the manufacturer and they contact you regarding the warranty.

Good price.

Paid £1890 this summer (SE England) from recommended local heating engineer for 30kW Vaillant conventional boiler (quoted Worcester Bosch or Viessman at same price; Ideal or Baxi cheaper), Magnacleanse flush (16 rads) and magnetic filter fitted, upgrade to 10 year Vaillant warranty, new condensate pipe through wall.

British Gas wanted £4k, including powerflush (be aware that they'll automatically offer several hundred pounds reduction if you don't take up their quote in the first week). Very thorough and professional assessment for quote, but way too expensive.

Haha.. I love it if you asked a 22 year to old to go and buy a boiler most people wouldn't have a clue..

Now that 22 year old can't read one line of text.. Didn't ask do you have a sloped roof asks where is the flue. How the heck did that 22 year old afford to live in a 4 bed house?

Replaced the boiler because hive doesn't connect, he got more money than sense.

I got hive v1 and have everything else Google but the hive thermostat is bullet proof wouldn't swap it if it came free at the moment.

Good luck to the lad wish my brains to money ratio was better that's all ><. If I did a video of boxt replacing my boiler the guys would be crying, the house was built in 1944 and the pipe work is horrendous.. I need to provide a full banquet to keep the guys working I think never mind biscuits lol.
I can highly recommend Boxt. Used them to replace Mums combi earlier in the year. Very easy website pricing. You go on to select your install day with some days offering a discount off the quoted price. Don’t forget £75 Topcashback either. Really nice installer. Got Smart Thermostat included and 10 yr warranty. They are part of Worcester Bosch hence their good prices and ability to offer a 10 yr warranty.
I'm doubt they offer a fixed installation, there's lots of variables unless it's a combi swap. Just to be clear a bigger boiler isn't always better beciase the boiler may not be as efficient as it could be but a bigger kW normally gives you a better flow rate (more hot water).
You can buy the new Worcester 2000 with a Worcester wireless comfort+ two control very cheaper at you local plumbers merchants (650-750 plus vat) add the Worcester filter and I reckon a local installer would want £1400 ish total (6 year warranty)

I have been in the industry for 15 years
I looked into boxt and what i would say is they are good but definitely expensive. They quoted me over 2.5k for a new boiler installed. I got same boiler for £800 (screwfix and lots of others online sell them) and a highly rated gas safe engineer to install for less than £300. Full 7 year warranty same as BOXT so you can cut out middleman profit for a little effort
Same boiler installed via a quote from an approved installer on the manufacturers website is £500 more with these guys.

I agree with this completely. Technology moves on and to replace based on the wizard could mean you'll miss out on a better solution for your property. Having compared the prices to what I have just been charged to replace my unveted system with a Storage combi which completely suits my property, the prices are not all that. I'm all for ordering stuff online but, for something that should last you 15+ years, getting advice from local, recommended & qualified professionals would be my advice.
