    Default Potterton Promax 28HE Plus

    Just got a quote for a new boiler installation from Scottish Gas and the advisor recommended this boiler. Anyone have any experience with this?


    I assume the advisor was impartial. I asked about Bosch and Vaillant (current one is a 25 year old Vaillant) and he said they're not as reliable as they used to be and are perhaps going on past reputations.


    Trying to find decent reviews of boilers seems rather difficult. What other options should I consider?

    Firstly, don't take tbe quote of SG, it'll be horrendous.
    Secondly, I'd rather fit an Ideal Vogue 32/Viessman/Vaillant.
    Thirdly, put your area up and get a few quotes from the team on here

    They've quoted me under £2500 all in.

    I'm in Carnoustie, Angus though so I'm all ears.

    Thanks for the offer, is it not a bit far for you though?

    Unless of course anyone can recommend someone in the Dundee/Tayside area?

    If you really don't mind coming that far?

    Sounds like I'm as well going for the Baxi version of this boiler if it is the one I want to go for. I'm not after all bells and whistles, more dependability.
