I need to replace a glow-worm Energysaver 60 boiler. Apparently the Heat Exchanger is leaking and I have been told the boiler is obsolete and the parts are unavailable. Would it make sense to replace it with a glow-worm 24hxi. I do not have a sealed system. I have the tank in the loft feeding a cistern. Would it be worth changing the plumbing and getting one of the glow-worm sxi range? or should I just leave the set-up the way it is and have a hxi fitted?

Where did you hear that i changed one before xmas boiler parts are available but might not be economical to replace
Someone in the trade did mention that I might be able to get the parts off the internet but that it might not be worth it as something else on the boiler could then fail. Would one the hxi range be a logical replacement for this boiler?
HRPC can get one within 10 working days

but not worth replacing for labour costs

In addition, i would say that if you were to replace the boiler stay away from glow worms. I have been called to no end this year and in some cases are just out of the guarantee period.
