Are you looking for a new combination boiler?

The problem is, there is too much choice. There are so many conflicting stories about which is the best combination boiler on the market – who do you believe?
Buying the wrong combi boiler and you may as well tape a shoe box to the wall and fill it with the money that you will spend on boiler repairs.
Best Combination Buyer Guide
Firstly, Advanced Heating & Plumbing have been in the central heating and boiler profession for 20 years. You could say we know our boilers!
So, the boilers we recommend (and install) are some of the best in the market. Spare parts and accessories for these boilers are very easy to obtain. The boilers themselves are (relatively) easy (for us!) to install, are and they are easy to use.
What not to do
You definitely do not want a new boiler that two years later needs a gas-safe engineer every few months to repair it.
As well as time consuming, it’s very annoying, distressing and costly on your pocket. Especially if you’re a Landlord or someone that depends on reliability in cold weather. Frankly, it’s a pain in the backside you really don’t need.
So how do you know how to choose the best combination boiler on the market?
What are the main key points you should consider when choosing a new boiler?
