boilersYou may be in the market for a new boiler, but how do you know which one is right for you?

Finding the right boiler

Unless you’re an expert, it can be difficult to know which type of boiler is best for your home.

You may have heard about the efficiency of combi boilers (the best-selling type of boiler in the UK), for instance, but aren’t sure whether they’d be right for the size of your family.

You may also be familiar with a particular brand, but aren’t quite sure whether it’s the most reliable or cost effective.

Today we’re going to explain more about the two particular brands of boiler, and why these boilers should be installed over any other brands.

We believe all heating engineers should fit either a Vaillant boiler, or a Worcester boiler in order to get the best results for efficient heating and hot water.

Why? Well, along with the reasons below, both of these brands have also been awarded with the Which Best Buy stamp of approval – a surefire sign that we’re onto a good thing.

Why Vaillant?

Vaillant is at the forefront of German heating and engineering excellence, and was the original inventor of the combi boiler.

If you want your boiler to last the distance, it’s recommended you go with a Vaillant boiler which lasts for around 12 years and also comes with up to an eight-year guarantee – that’s a longer guarantee than any other brand of boiler on the market.

Vaillant have also won an award for having the quietest boiler on the market, which is especially perfect if your boiler is installed in somewhere like a bedroom.

Why Worcester?

If you’re looking for a compact and discreet boiler, Worcester have introduced a special compact boiler that can be fitted inside most kitchen cupboards – something that 90 per cent of boilers on the market aren’t able to do.

Although originally a UK company, Worcester were taken over by the company Bosh, and are now German engineered with a UK manufacturing plant, employing many people in the UK.

Reliable and cost effective

Most engineers using these brands choose to install them in customers’ homes because they are extremely reliable and come with a good back-up service in the event of any problems.

Accredited installers also mean these boilers come with longer guarantees, ensuring the customer gets the most value out of their new investment.

As for size, both brands offer various solutions to suit different home scenarios and property sizes, so there are plenty of options to choose from when selecting the perfect cost effective boiler for your home.


Still unsure about your boiler? Upon conducting a home visit, a good engineer will be able to consult with you on which type and brand of boiler will be best for your home, and explain the benefits and reasons for their choice. Always ask if an engineer is accredited to install Vaillant or Worcester boilers.
