Looking to buy Worcester boiler, but not sure if it’s the right boiler brand for you? Keep reading, and we’ll explain why buying Worcester boilers is a decision you won’t regret.
Which? Best Gas Boiler Survey
Like buying a product on Amazon, when buying a new boiler, you’ll want to hear feedback from current owners. And, the best feedback you’ll get comes from the Which? best gas boiler survey. The Which? survey asks over 9,000 homeowners each year to rate their boiler, to determine the brands offering the most reliable products, and the best value for money.
In the 2017 survey Worcester scored the highest, with an overall rating of 92%. And that makes them the winner for the 8th year running. After extensive research, Which? has also awarded each of the boilers in the Greenstar range a “Best Buy” rating.
But should you buy Worcester boiler based on its rating on Which? alone? One of the most important things to analyse when buying a new boiler, is the warranty on offer by the manufacturer.
Typically, you’ll want to avoid anything with a warranty less than two-years completely. Two-years would be the minimum warranty you’d be looking for. However, it’s advisable to look for boiler brands offering more, especially as some brands offer up to twelve years. So, why do you need a boiler with a long warranty?
Boiler Repair Costs
Boilers aren’t cheap to repair. A malfunction with an integral part such as the PCB, could land you with a repair bill of £500 or more. These parts shouldn’t break within the first few years, but if you’re out of warranty, you’re out of luck too. And that’s why we’d advise customers to buy Worcester boiler. All our of Worcester Boilers come with a 12 year warranty.
The next thing to consider, is that a boiler’s warranty hints at how long it will last. Boiler manufacturers know that their warranty is a huge selling point. So, why are manufacturers offering just one or two years warranty? Because they know after that time, there’s a good chance expensive parts are going to break.
If you’re looking to buy Worcester boiler and have been researching their warranty, you’ll see their warranty of up to 12 years is as high as you’ll get from any leading manufacturer.
Worcester Boiler Range
When we get customer approaching us to buy Worcester boiler, we get asked whether the Worcester range is flexible enough to suit their property. The Greenstar range has different boilers in all shapes and sizes. And, that means there’s a boiler suitable for almost any property and heating system layout.
Worcester produce a range of combination, system, regular, oil and LPG boilers. Here’s a few popular examples from their combi range:
Worcester Greenstar i
This is the budget and high-quality option from Worcester. The Greenstar i is one of the most popular boilers in the UK. And, Worcester have created models such as the 25i and 30i that are suitable for the average small-medium sized property.
Worcester Greenstar CDi Compact
What do you do if you need a high output boiler, but only have a small installation area; a kitchen cupboard for instance?
You buy a CDi Compact. These were designed specifically for properties that need high output (for instance, to power two bathrooms), but minimal installation space.
Worcester Greenstar Highflow CDi
Have high demand for heating and hot water? The Worcester Highflow CDi is for you. These are the biggest and most powerful of the Worcester combi boilers, suitable for properties with more than one bathroom.
Buy Worcester Boiler: Boiler Prices
There’s one thing that stops people looking to buy Worcester boiler; the price. No doubt, there are cheaper boiler brands out there, but there are very few we feel comfortable installing. Most boiler manufacturers will have an optional warranty upgrade. Take a look at the price of this upgrade, and you’ll see to bump a two-year warranty up to five years and beyond, all of a sudden the price of a Worcester (inclusive of a five plus year warranty) doesn’t seem so bad.
Additionally, we’ve found Worcester to be one of the most reliable boilers on the market. So, an upfront investment for a quality boiler now, is going to save you a lot of cash on boiler repairs in the future.
Worcester Bosch Boiler Alternatives
So, are there any alternatives for those looking to buy Worcester boiler? There are three main brands we install, one being Worcester Bosch.
The others are:
- Ideal Boilers
- Ideal Boilers Vs Worcester Bosch
Ideal offer boilers that come with two to twelve years warranty, so there is the opportunity to get a warranty that rivals Worcester. Typically, an Ideal will be around 20-30% cheaper than a Worcester. Most installers will agree that Worcester are slightly more reliable, and the technical after sales support is of a higher standard. There’s also a lot more flexibility in the Worcester range for different sized properties and heating layouts.
Looking for a budget boiler with a long warranty, in an average property? Ideal is a good choice. Want the maximum warranty and reliability which means no expensive repair bills, so the average boiler won’t do? Buy Worcester boiler.
