Which boiler should I go for?
Baxi Megaflo System Boiler 24 HE or Alpha CD24S Condensing System Boiler.
The Alpha is quite expensive compared to the Baxi and I was all set to go
for it. However Screwfix are doing a deal on the Baxi with £200 in vouchers.
Can the Baxi be so awful it needs such promotion?
I am not a plumber so I can't compare boilers. Generally speaking the more
you pay then the better you get. My local firm only installs Worcester Bosch
on the grounds of reliability and good backup service in the event that a
Worcester Bosch technician needs to be called out. Worcester Bosch has been
offering a 5 year guarantee recently, but I don't know whether the offer is
still on. They must be confident in their boilers to do that.
Personally, and i do this for a living, id fit the Baxi out of the two you
They are nice and straightforward to service and parts are easily avalible,
all in all a good middle of the road boiler with good spares availability
and technical backup.
Worcester Bosch are loads better but cost loads more, Roll`s Royce of
boilers - if it was my house and i was staying there for a few years id
stretch the extra cash and fit one of these.
If your moving soonish or moneys tight fit the Alpha
hope that helps
