The Biasi shown at the beginning is one with an ali heat exchanger. They were designed to compete with the cheap boilers like the ideal logic. I dont know their sales figures but seem to have missed the boat!

However, Biasi do make an excellent boiler at about £500. I dont know the fancy name which will be confusing anyway but the actual model number is M269 !

Its based on the tried and tested M96 band B boiler with a little tweaking to make it over 90% efficient and become a Band A.

The reasons its so good is that its a standard burner and not premix and so is very stable and does not need a flue gas analyser to set it up or service it. It has a traditional copper heat exchanger followed by a recouperator to make it condensing. Its now a finned coil in the recouperator to increase the efficiency.

An excellent design based on tried and tested parts.

Biasi have made some very reliable boilers in there day at a very affordable price

afaik the one u are looking at as said is the atmospheric combi that has a fan modulation board & an ally recouperater

How ever in my op Biasi are a lousey company to deal with . a total shower , they do not deal with intermittent in warranty faults " give us a call when the intermittent fault becomes permanent " was the advice from there tech line :) u may end up with a service agent that will go to any lengths do weasel out of any warranty claim , this could include measuring the height of the room stat off the floor , sniffing the water out the boiler , leaving 6 or 7 sheets of A4 paper work with you telling u why the boiler is installed incorrectly

My advice walk away
