Replacement open vent boiler for combi boiler

Looking to replace glowworm micron system vent boiler (hot water cylinder and cold tank in loft) for a new combi boiler. 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. Looking for advice on boiler brand and rough idea of cost. Been recommended vokera 30 so far. Also, boiler needs to fit inside 500mm kitchen unit or possibly need re-sited.

Your doing a system conversion.
Best Boiler to use for you size house is the Worcester Bosh 25si Compact.
Peace of mind proven reliability.
Cannot put volkera Boilers in this bracket.
Notice I said 25Si and not 30kw you have been recommended.
Reason is you do not need a 30kw unless you like shelling out more money to the gas supplier.

Simple system conversion to a closed system, my recommendation would be a Worcester 25i/Si this is capable of Heating 9 litres of hot water per min provided you’ve got this coming into the property,(will be measured before any work commences) I wouldn’t personally recommend volkera, regarding price every install is different and the job would need looking at for a fixed price, this would inc a system filter a system flush, and a Worcester Bosch Wave smart control to meet the new efficiency regulations (boiler +)
