    Folks,

    Have had an IDEAL ICOS condensing gas boiler for 5 years and it's given me trouble since it was installed. first leaks then knocking sounds then the PCB board replaced twice at £200 a pop.

    now i think its really time to get rid of this sh1te. Can anyone suggest a direct replacement (different manufactured ofcourse) that would allow me to replace only the boiler. I really don't want to start replacing motorised valves and the honeywell smartfit control system.
    Its basically to heat a 4 bedroom, 2 reception room bungalow.

    many thanks
    steve

    Viessmann, get an approved installer for a 5 year warranty and 25 on the heat exchanger.

    You don't say whether it is a system or open vent Icos or what model it is.

    I would suggest a Vaillant Ecotec Plus 618 if a sealed system, or a 418 if open vented, unless you have the Icos 24HE, which then would probably need to be replaced with a boiler the same power output.

    If you want the creme de la creme of boilers then look at the ATAG E22S
