I've got a 15 year old Boulter Camray Compact 40/50 boiler with a Riello 40 424T55 burner. The burner frequently locks out, and I'm considering replacing the whole boiler with something more efficient. I would like something similar, ie a wall mounted oil fired condensing boiler, possibly a combi-boiler. There don't seem to be many options. Has anybody got any recommendations? If I can get a combi boiler, I would run the kitchen/Utility room and a shower from the hot water side, and use the CH side to heat an existing HW cylinder for a bath etc. has anybody any thoughts on this proposal?

Pretty sure that Heating World Grandee do a wall hung oil fired condensing good they are I don't know.

I agree with holty...if you want a combi and you have the space then go for external.
Thanks for the responses, gents. You seem to favour an external boiler. Is there a reason why? My boiler maintenance guy said that he would prefer an external boiler as there would be plenty of room to get access. In my case, he would also be up a ladder. Is access the only reason? My existing boiler is wall mounted on a utility room wall, all the services are in place.
