Finding a really good performing boiler for your home is obviously the objective when you need a replacement. But with such a lot of products out there, we felt it could help you in your search if we suggested 5 of the top rated combi boilers for you.
Broadly, this is a combination of several online reviews that we have collated & condensed. With this “review of reviews” we have shortlisted 3 of the best this year.
What we looked for in terms of basic criteria were:
What follows is not in any particular order and, of course, you may have a different idea of what makes the best boiler for you. However, here goes.
This German manufacturer also got a lot of good reviews, especially for reliability, and is well respected by engineers and liked by homeowners.
With the Vitodens 050-W & Vitodens 200-W, you can get up to 97% energy efficiency (A rated) and 7 year extendable warranties. A good reputation for reliability, parts & aftersales service.
Another German manufacturer often features in the “Which best buy” listings. Reportedly on the costlier side of this type of boiler.
A good choice can be the ecoTEC Plus Combi. Known as a very user friendly unit that has a standard 10-year warranty. Comes with an ‘A’ rating for heating and hot water.
The Greenstar range is the most popular of their products and they have been considered a market leader in the UK for ages.
Reportedly having good hot water flow rates, the Greenstar CDi Classic has easy to use controls and high energy efficiency ratings. Can be used with LPG or natural gas.
Originally a UK company, but now owned by a German parent they have a good range of products. Their reputation for parts & after-sales service is very good.
Coming with a basic 5-year warranty which can be extended to 10 and an ‘A’ rating for energy efficiency.
Baxi have been making boilers in the UK for over 100 years. The main reason the make the list is that they are part of a large group that makes boilers in the UK (including Potterton) and are known as a competitively priced boiler supplier.
In the past, there have been some uninspiring reviews about customer service, also some moans about folks being confused by the warranties on offer.
So Baxi could be a good option for a low cost combi boiler – but check with your supplier about after sales, parts and warranties.
A good combi can last up to 15 years if you treat it well.
