    There's a few high value boilers I'd recommend in a heart beat;
    Vaillant Group Heatline
    Vokera Easi-Heat
    Ravenheat White Heat
    Ariston Clas

    Not many fancy features on these boilers, but they're reliable boilers if correctly fitted.

    I've had a Glow Worm boiler for 3 years (7 year warranty). Serviced each year and no issues yet. I did re-do all the electrical wiring to it myself because the person who fitted it was a moron.

    Funny, but I noticed a Easicom in a Plumbers' Merchants for £350.00 + vat including standard flue kit.

    Fitted a few of the easy-heat (Vokera) and the Clas (Ariston) never had any problems with any of them A bit more costly than the Easicom, if you want to look at the other end of the scale Then look at Intergas boilers.

    I listened to the presentation on the Ariston boilers at the recent trade show.

    Was quite impressed by the versatility of the budget boiler.

    But not by their failure to send me the promised shirt! Even after mentioning it to their rep on his follow up call after the show! It seems that I will need to call him back! Lucky that I saved his number!

    They seem proud of their after sales and warranty support. After not getting the shirt yet I am not so sure!

  8. Very true, The.buyer has to check the warranty conditions small print with a very powerful magnifying glass and be minded the conditions could vary during ownership.

    I am pleased to say that I received the Ariston Jacket last week.

    It is a nice Regatta brand with a bright red "Ariston" embroidered on it.


    Now all I need is an Intergas tee shirt to complete my wardrobe!


    Would have thought that would be the least they could do after forgetting to invite me to their Amsterdam visit.

    In some parts of the world, including Europe, boilers can be rented. The boiler is not owned by the resident be they owner occupier or tenant.

    How would that be affected by changes in the warranty conditions. Would the boiler owner repair or change out defective boilers ?
