    Hi all,

    I have an Ariston Microgenus 23 mffi combi which is driven me mad this past year with faults(have heard they not the most reliable of things) so i have decided for peace of mind to just have it taken out and replaced but am at a complete loss as to what to get. Price is a factor (currently have around £600) but also reliability too. If anyone has any suggestions on what to buy this would be most helpful :)

    Thank you


    Ste

    'Fraid 600 notes isn't going to get you much of a boiler if that is your budget.

    You need to work very hard to get more, you're looking at much more than double that for a decent replacement including installation

    Aristons are not bad generally. The common better ones are vaillant & worcester bosch, atag, viessman etc very good as well,
    whilst you might pick up one of the above for £800-900 its the installation costs which you need to allow for and the best way to get that is to ask people round for a quote

    Plumb Centre are doing an Ideal logic Plus 30kw for £634 if you can drop the vat.

    Some people hate em, others rate them quite highly for a new boiler

    Other than that not a lot around in your price range unless you want a Ferrolli Wickes special

    Correction: he is looking at way more than that for a proper supply and fit. OP specifically stated that reliability was important.

    I have heard rumours of cowboys doing supply and fit for that sort of money, but I still have to actually see one.
    Would love to see one though.
