If you need a new boiler and want to know which brand of boiler is best, this article will take a closer look at some of the best names in the business and what sets them apart from their competition.

Worcester Bosch

Worcester Bosch is a household name for boilers and is probably the number one boiler brand name that comes to mind if you ask somebody to think of one. With long guarantees up to ten years and a solid reputation that has earned them the Which? Best Buy award for ten years running, Worcester Bosch is a top competitor in the boiler market. They have a wide range of boilers varying in price and size to suit your needs, but their biggest selling point is their unwavering reputation from customers and engineers alike.

Vaillant

Vaillant boilers come with varying warranties of 2 to 5 years depending on the products that you purchase. This is lower than some of the warranties on offer with other companies, but it should be considered that the Vaillant gas boiler ranges were awarded a Which? Best Buy award in 2020, showing how well received they are by their customers. They are also highly rated by engineers. They have a wide range of combi, system and conventional vented boilers depending on your requirements.

Ideal

Ideal boilers are becoming increasingly popular and now they are selling over 10,000 boilers every year. Their boilers are known for the lack of noise when running, and they offer a variety of warranty lengths depending on the product that you purchase from them. A benefit of choosing Ideal as your boiler brand is that they have a wide range of options that suit every price range.

Viessman

Viessman is a German company that has made quite a name for themselves in the UK market. Their boilers are known for their reliability and their incredibly low noise when running. Viessman offer ten-year warranties on many of their boilers which should give you peace of mind that you will be looked after if anything goes wrong. 

Alpha

Alpha is a brand that is less well known than the likes of Worcester Bosch and Vaillant, but they are known for their lower prices that will suit if you are on a budget. Not only that, but Alpha use stainless steel to make their heat exchangers, which is a premium material that is less likely to corrode over time in comparison to typical aluminium heat exchangers. As the heat exchanger is one of the costliest items to repair on your boiler, it is worth investing in a boiler that has stainless steel heat exchangers.
