    Takes proper insanity to design this bolox.

    Correct. A pile of ****. Vaillant filling loops are moderately better.

    No. We actually had a colder winter last time than the year before yet the Winter quarter was still better

    Sure Worcesters have their issues but the Classic...it was the high end model at the time...easy to fix, very easy parts availability, best backup and should last 20 years.
    Only the hopeless need to remove the boiler to change a relief valve..
    The classic doesn't have a filling key..just a simple a sprung lever valve.
    Good luck getting parts or anyone to come and look at it with all those obscure brands.

    Yes, they're a good company. I would say they are a bit more reliable than most, but a pig to work on.

    If you feel confident and deem yourself competent, then you can do what you want in your own home. Trouble is boilers, and especially newer boilers need test equipment to check the safety of the boiler, flue gasses etc, without it you can't tell if the boiler is safe, it may work, but it could kill.

    They pass all the time. Changed more Vaillant loops than Worcester ones.

    OK £64000 question, I have an Ideal FF250 25 years old, only issue has been extractor fan/bearings required sorting a few times but ready to change it cos it trips out now and again ( heat exchanger clogged up at a guess). Central heating and open vent hot water cylinder ( do not want combi) what to go for, probably need to upgrade to 18kw according to my heating calcs.

    Maybe get the boiler and system flushed (it should be cleaned before fitting a new boiler). If you definitely need a new one, have a look at an Ideal Logic.
