    Hi, am looking quotes on a replacement gas boiler ne37 2hq area, it’s in a cupboard on the first floor with the flue through the roof, a 3 bed semi with one bathroom that runs 9 radiators, a friend recommends an ideal logic boiler but I’m new to them

    You won't get a quote here I'm afraid, it's forum policy because there are large regional variations. Do a search for recommend me a boiler, not a criticism but we get that request about five times a week. My advice would be to save a bit more and buy the very best boiler you can afford that comes with an extended warranty. A requirement of the warranty will be to have it serviced every year, so if you have no intention of doing that don't bother and hope it lasts which it may.

    Truth be told all boilers re manufactured incredibly poorly. FRom my experience ideal are as reliable as anything worcester make.

    Check out reviews online. You will find a lot more people happier with Worcester/Vaillant then Ideal.

    You will find just as many moaning about worcester / vaillant as well. Worked on a contract service and repair for local council all worcester boilers. Bag of junk fall apart with alarming regularity.

    The house I bought has a new worcester in and it's a bag of junk . Considering I owned a house with an alpha in it that's saying something

    That’s why I do not recommend anything but Vaillant. But I will fit what ever the customer wants

    I agree about Worcester boilers, not forgetting the awful internal placement design of some parts. Vaillant over Worcester for me any day! It’s very hard to price a job without actually being there and looking at what is involved Ken.
