    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.

    How's this for a revival. Could do with some input here.

    IDCHAPPY fitted my Baxi boiler not long after I started this topic and it's been issue free until now- just had a repair under warranty today (a plastic cartridge was leaking and this in turn knackered a motor) but I've been without hot water since Monday night.

    My Home Emergency cover wouldn't touch it as it's still under warranty, much to my dismay given it's why I got it!

    So in this scenario where I still have over 5 years left on the warranty yet Baxi struggle to send anyone out quickly, how best to go about having emergency cover? Seems a bit pointless paying extra for something still within warranty but 4 nights with no hot water in February is not something I intend to repeat.

    Have you tried calling Ian back?

    Wasn't going to as it's not an installer issue just a general question regarding emergency cover during a warranty period. (he's far too far away for an emergency call out too)
