Central Heating Question
Have been given a quote for a Baxi boiler? Are they any good?
You get what your budget for, Baxi are not my first personal choice, but you could do a lot worst. Try and find a boiler with at least a full 5 year manufacturers parts & labor backed warranty. The two boilers I prefer to install with very few problems to date are Worcester Bosch CD Classic & Si model range, then slightly cheaper but imo Ideal Logic Plus combi range.
Both have a standard full 5 year warranty, but if your an approved W-B installer they can give you an additional 2 year warranty at a small extra cost giving you a full 7 year warranty-not to be seized at.
But I now believe Baxi offer a full 10 year warranty on their Baxi Platinum Combi HE boilers, maybe worth considering but this will come at a price in terms of comparative boiler cost and I believe the installer will have to be Baxi approved to qualify!

baxi,main,potterton all the same firm.what you need is a compatant fitter firstly and a 5 year warranty with the boiler you are having fitted, most of the big hitters are giving that with there boilers now,not sure about baxi though having said that they are a long standing company and may well be !!!
