Discuss Boiler with 10 year warranty? in the Central Heating Forum area at

    I have been to look at a job, customer needs a combi swap. He has been looking online and has decided he wants a 10 year warranty.

    He wants worcester, vaillant or Ideal. I can't find anything with a 10 year.
    Is this possible? if so I'm sure it will mean the install has to meet certain criteria, which will mean fitting the extras like filters etc which I always ty and do anyway. Obviously depending on if the customer wants to pay.

    Any recommendations?

    Put a Baxi platinum in 10 years out the box and bulletproof, big beast though. You don’t have to jump through any hoops like other manufacturers make you.

    What ideal does your customers want ? Unless it’s a vogue they have to be the worst built boilers on the market. Even the vogues previous brass blocks are now plastic.

    I’ve fit ideal for years and not any problems, Ive always flushed the system and fit a filter mind.

    I’ve heard that used to have a problem with heat exchangers and cracked sumps but I’ve not seen one on any that I’ve fit in the last five years.

    The new Ideal logic max are 10 years warranty and vogue max 12. You just have to join their ideal connect points scheme, no “hoops” to jump through.

    On the other hand I’ve seen countless cracked plastic parts on Worcester’s and blocked heat exchangers. In my opinion Worcester’s are overrated.

    Also how do you become a Worcester accredited installer? By fitting X amount a month it’s not about anything other than sales

    Too be honest a bad boiler fitted well will last longer than any boiler fitted badly :p I have a 12 year old b&q biasi boiler to prove it

    WB prob the best warranty on the market, all other look for reasons to charge before they even turn up at the door.

    There are two issues here. 1. A 10 year warrantee. 2. Boiler quality. I am pragmatic and would choose a quality boiler over any warrantee. One might say that poorly built boiler manufacturers have to cover this with long warranties. I would advise an ATAG boiler installed by an ATAG accredited engineer. Very soon installers who just fit anything and whom are not accredited might find quality work drying up Rob Foster aka centralheatking

    We used to fit Vaillant spot on units with great service back up, we had the first sign written trucks in Somerset with the Easter bunny on and full vaillant van pack wrapping they are still the Audi of heating boliers it’s just ATAG are Honda and superior
