    Ok, so I’ve narrowed my boiler search down...

    1. Worcester combi 8000 style 35kw £3900
    2. Worcester 440cdi storage combi £4600
    3. Viessmann 111-W 35kw storage combi £4000

    Please nobody give me any other options as this boiler-thing is doing my head in! I’m like a kid in a sweetie shop with 50p to spend

    What would you pick? Best bang for buck?

    Thanks!
    Rich

    If ( when ) I need a new boiler then it will not be a combi and if Johnson and Starley have a suitable boiler ( circa 16 kW heat only ) then that would be my choice ( based on 9 years with my J&S Reno 16 )

    Eugh, not exactly great options. The Viessmann if you really must, but I wouldn't actually want any of them

    You haven't told us your requirements, so who knows what will meet them?

    Why you pick this? Is this in 40kw guise just as good?

    two bathrooms, four people. And presumably you currently have a hot-water cylinder?

    How much incoming water flow do you get?

    I reckon incoming flow is 16-17litres/min roughly.

    How did you decide against an unvented cylinder?
