A question for Gas4you

I read in a thread that you would no longer recommend Vaillant boilers and I wondered why that is? Just being inquisitive Dave.

Cheers

Just a personal thing DWD.

I have just had enough of them.

They are no longer value for money IMO, either overpriced compared to the competition, or made for the cheap new build market.

They have lost their way IMO.

The last ones I fitted were the original Ecotec Plus series.

Oh, I wondered. I have a Vaillant but it is around 10 years old now (how quickly time flies). It has been very good apart from the condensate pipe freezing but that is no fault of the boiler. It looks like when replacement time comes around I may join the Intergas club if Vaillant are the new Biasi.

Cheers Dave,

Not saying there’s anything wrong with Vaillant, but I can’t see anything to justify spending around £400-£500 more just to have the Vaillant name any more.

If the OP had said Worcester or Vaillant, then I would have said Vaillant.

You pays your money and takes your choice.

Crikey, I just looked they have gone up in price. I think mine cost about £850 back then and that was £100 off. That warranty they give now must have done it :lol:
