Ive tried to do as much research as possible to try find a replacement for my ageing Potterton Lynx Electronic combi.


I have a gas safe fitter doing the job, but is isnt linked to either brand (so wont get any extended warranties, just the standard ones mentioned below)




I have picked out the following, and left a note with my reasons (costs include fittings and boiler cost):


WORCESTER-BOSCH Greenstar 28CDi = £1250


- 5 year Boiler Guarantee
- 10 year heat Exchange Guarantee
- Peace of mind of large support network, and low risk of shortage of parts in the future.


Cons
- Replacement parts can be pricey, more elements that can go wrong compared to the Intergas like model






Vaillant ecoTEC Plus 824 = £1219


- 5 year Guarantee
- Stainless Steel Exchange
- Large support network, and low risk of shortage of parts in the future.
- From what I can gather, are a bit easier to access for repairs compared to the Worcester should they be needed


Cons
- Replacement parts can be pricey, more elements that can go wrong compared to the Intergas like model






INTERGAS Combi Compact HRE 24/18 = £1051


- 10 year warranty on the heat exchanger
- 3 year warranty on parts/labour if warranty card registered
- Less parts to go wrong as used in above models
- Seem to get glowing reviews... cant really find any bad ones?
- Cheaper than the other alternatives.


Cons:
- It concerns me that parts may not be available in the future, and support from engineers if needed when warranty ends.


- Upon doing research, some of the parts used in the boiler are not without their issues when other brands have used same parts.




Having a bit of a dilemma on which one to go for, so would appreciate any input.


Cheers
