A little survey of what feature you guys think makes a gas boiler stand out from the rest.
Is it:
  • brand (WB anyone?)
  • flow rate
  • hex material
  • no Plate hex (intergas, Ferroli)
  • efficiency (93.47% better than 93.43%)
  • price
  • anything else
To me it's the modulation factor. No point having a 100% efficient boiler if you need 5kW of heat and it's stuck at 30kW.


I also think efficiency is well overrated. Most manufacturers boast how efficient their boiler is. All condensing boilers should be efficient anyway but this is wasted if the house is not well-insulated or the boiler doesn't go into condensing mode because return temp is too high.
