My fucking boiler has just broke and I’ve been told I need a new one. It’s a Baxi WM 51, nearly 35 years old and the heat exchanger is completely furred up and won’t last long. (Diagnosed by a retired plumber I trust who won’t be doing the job). He’s managed to get it working but say’s it won’t last long.
So I’m looking to get a new heat only boiler. Any suggestions?
But as to Sods Law - why do boilers only fail when it’s cold or I need a shower?
And why do light bulbs only go wrong when it’s dark?
Good luck, our Worcester boiler (5 yrs old now) is shit, broken down once a winter for the last 2 years.
Last year it pissed out water and would have brought the ceiling down had we not been in to isolate it. I’m waiting to see what will go wrong this year.
Whereas our Worcester combi has been so reliable over the last 7 years (I might have had to switch it off and on again a couple of times in that time) that I’m prepared to come on here and say so. As the temperature outside starts to plummet.
