Baxi vs worcester

I have a Halstead Best 60. I am planning it to be replaced. I had an Engineer (Goverment Grant funded) come around and told me they would replace it with a BAXI boiler because it has alternate types of wiring controls and said the Worcester would be unsuitable for the wiring I have on my system.ie. the wirng difference is the pump control. Is this true?" . I am keen to have a worcester. I would be grateful for any comments. Many Thanks.

You have been ill advised. No problem in fitting a W-B system boiler as a suitable replacement. The wiring may require minor alteration as you seem to have a conventional boiler fitted. Post the job here for your preferred Gas Safe engineer to visit carry out a survey and then advise on cost.

would more than likely need an extra wire for the pump over-run ,a baxi does not require it .
