    Boiler maintenance tips

    Heating Engineers

    Which type of boiler is the easiest to maintain over time? Does it depend on the quality of the product?

    "Hi the quality of the product has a lot to do with the reliability of the boiler. It's best to look for a product with a long warranty like 7-10 ,years. Baxi, worcester and valliant have excellent customer service and their boilers are of excellent standards.
    Hope this helps."

    "Hello there,
    Yes, the quality of the product has a lot to do with the reliability of the boiler. Brass parts tend to be more reliable than plastic parts, and cheaper boilers tend to be more expensive when purchasing replacement parts.
    My advice would be to look for a product with a long warranty (eg 7 years) made by a reputable manufacturer, with good after-sales service. Baxi would be my recommendation.
    Hope this helps

    "This is not such a straightforward question.

    Even within the different types of boilers, there will be key differences between different manufacturers.

    But to give you a simple answer, as the conventional boiler has fewer parts inside (ie you have a pump and cylinder etc externally) you can say it is less likely to have something go wrong than a combi or system boiler.

    But also it depends on things like if it was installed properly if it is serviced regularly if you have a good quality magnetic filter etc etc.

    But which boiler is right for you may not be right for someone else. So it all depends on what type of system suits your home/requirements."

    "The newer boilers that are coming out from Worcester are getting easier to service due to on-site engineers feedback. They have taken our feedback on board and from that, the boilers are easier to service."

    "Depends on the type of boiler you are referring to. However they are all relatively straightforward to maintain. In particular Vaillant boilers I would suggest as best. Parts are in good supply and less costly. After that I would perhaps suggest Ideal & Worcester next."

    "The easiest boilers to maintain are conventional boilers, also known as CH Boilers, because they have the least components. Installing a filter will prolong any boiler's operation. Quality is most definitely a factor when it comes to longevity."

    "I would recommend that you have a vailliant or ideal for maintenance purposes plus warranty is good and parts are relatively inexpensive"
