If the time has come for you to replace your boiler you may be overwhelmed by the options available to you, and ultimately which is the best model for your home. Combi boilers are the most commonly chosen boiler type, as they can provide heat and hot water simultaneously in your home. There are no water tanks as the combi boiler is connected to your mains water supply, saving on space.
Combi boilers can also reduce your bills as they only heat the water that you require, and they are cheaper to install. Unless you have a big household where you expect multiple hot water taps to be used at once, then a combi boiler is probably the best option. System boilers are more beneficial for larger households with numerous bathrooms that may be used at the same time.
Unlike the combi boiler, system boilers do require a storage tank, so would not be suitable for small homes. In this article, we will be looking at combi boilers as they are the most commonly chosen product. Listed below are four of the most notable models on the market to help you make the right decision.
Vaillant ecoFIT Pure Combi
This gas combi boiler is a cupboard-sized boiler with smart controls and an ERP efficiency rating of A for both the heating and water, and it comes with a 2-year standard guarantee.
With a flow rate that goes up to 14.1 litres, the Vaillant ecoFIT combi boiler ensures that you will have instant access to hot water. This is also a Quiet Mark awarded boiler, meaning that it is recognised internationally as a quiet product and you can be confident that it will run without disturbing your home.
Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000 Style Combi
Worcester Bosch is one of the most well-known boiler brand names in the United Kingdom. When researching which boiler to install, you have probably come across Worcester Bosch. The Greenstar 8000 Style Combi has a beautifully modern design, comes with a 12-year guarantee and an ERP efficiency rating of A for both heating and water.
It also comes with a wireless smart thermostat and is available in black or white. There is also a full-colour boiler display and it has been regarded as one of the quietest models ever produced by Worcester Bosch. The downsides of this boiler would be that it is at the higher end of the price ranges.
Ideal Logic Combi C30
If you are looking for a boiler that is friendly on your bank balance, the Ideal Logic Combi C30 is a good model to consider. This model also comes with an ERP efficiency A rating and a flow rate of 12.4 litres per minute, this boiler model is a great option and comes in at a lower cost than the Vaillant ecoFIT Pure Combi and the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 8000. It doesn’t have as many impressive features as the other models we have covered, but it will still do the job effectively.
Viessmann Vitodens 200-W
With 98% energy efficiency, this model is an impressive one. It comes with a 10-year comprehensive warranty, can be controlled using an app on your smartphone and is incredibly quiet at only 34 decibels when operational.
This boiler has so many excellent features, such as a stainless-steel heat exchanger that is bound to last the test of time, but it does come with a much higher price tag. You pay for what you get, and this is a top range product from a reputable company.
