Advice from an experienced engineer

It’s true that other brands are gaining market share right now, and there are some great deals at the moment. If I was a new homeowner, or looking to save a bit of money on a new boiler, I’d probably be very tempted to opt for one of those deals. And I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that!

However, the likes of Baxi and Ideal are yet to prove their longevity. As a brand, Worcester has proved itself time and time again, so if you’re looking for a good quality combi boiler to truly last the distance, without breaking down, Worcester Bosch is a good bet.

As for the others? Time will tell. In the end, the choice is completely yours.
