    whats building regs is that not for new properties the plot thickens.

    googled ATAG seems like a quality product but i imagine i struggle to get a engineer if things go wrong, what about Viessmann??

    Go onto the ATAG website. Click on the menu. Click on find an installer and Roberts your fathers brother. Just so you know ATAG do not sell to engineers or trade centres that are not registered with them. Anything you find on sale on the net are old ATAG boilers you want one of the new ones with a 10 year warranty.

    Building regs are things like TRVs, timed and programmable Heating, zoning if required, smart/weather compensation style controls to become the norm

    The glow worm is a budget boiler.
    Are you going to buy the boiler yourself??

    You may find you don't get the extended warranty if you supply it yourself.

    Don’t buy yourself it’s always more hassle. Plus your fitter is under no obligation to help if you have teething problems. Get some more quotes and specify what boiler you’d like. You are the customer after all

    I’ll save you a lot of effort mate you ask 20 plumbers on here you will likely get 15-20 different makes suggested. Personally speaking I would prefer to have an installer who knows their product and can set it up properly rather than turning up to fit what the customer has bought. Just my opinion but if you aren’t going to listen to your local installers recommendations then it’s really finger in the wind. For my money I would fit Vaillant or Glowworm, I find their aftersales support Excellent (I know some on here will argue differently) and I can only speak about the experiences I’ve had. They are good to work on and parts are readily available when out of warranty. I think we can all tell you what makes to avoid but the decision is ultimately yours.
