    When people advise the best combi they always seem to recommend the boilers they have personal experinece of. The best is Viessmann or Eco-Hometec, Atag, Atmos and a few others. Worcester-Bosch is mid range as is Vaillant.

    The Glow Worm is well priced and a rebadged Vaillant. Personally, I would go Glow Worm over W-B.

    true , i`ve been fitting the glow worms for a fair while now , and have not been back to one on a boiler fault , which is cool for me ,
    Unless a customer ask`s for someting different i`ll keep using them .

    I thing W-B are not what they used to be .

    I've never had anything but trouble with Worcester boilers. I've had four houses over the last 10 years and each has had a Worcester of some description, a couple fairly new, a couple fairly old. Every one has suffered diverter failure, which, although it's probably a consumable of some description, should fail all the time. A couple have also suffered expansion vessel failure and I've also had to ignition thingy failures.

    In fact, I've had that many failures that I now know more or less how to fix my own boiler each time it fails!

    Oh, one other thing, whichever brand you go for, get the highest output boiler you can afford. The higher the output the quicker the water is heated thus the quicker the flow of hot. Also, it allows for future extension of the hot water system.

    A 38 to 40kW combi is one bathroom job. Any extension can be catered for by another combi or a high flow multi-point like a Rinnai.
