In the second of a series, Mr Central Heating will be looking at the most popular boiler brands on the market and comparing them so you get the best deal possible. This week we are looking at Worcester or Baxi boilers?

When comparing new boilers it is not all about the amount of advertising a boiler manufacturer does on the product it is about getting the best value for money and the best most reliable boiler. Worcester Bosch is a popular brand and they spend a lot on advertising and the price reflects this. They are also a leading brand and can charge a premium for the product. Mr Central Heating has always based our emphasis on delivering quality for everyone not just the customer that wants the most expensive product. This is where Baxi comes in with a two ranges of boilers that offer far more on warranty and reliability with a much more affordable price tag.

The above table sets out the differences but the headline is just the affordability of the Worcester Greenstar 25i and the fact that you get a 2 year longer warranty. This could add up to hundreds of pounds saving as the boiler is going to be in the later stages of its life. The Baxi is bigger but this is far better on existing systems and the Worcester Greenstar 25i is a very robust durable platform. The i model range is a price conscious range and has been stripped down to be more affordable so losing some functionality whereas the Duotec is a stainless steel heat exchanger with all the latest technology.

The next boilers to compare are the premium ranges of each manufacturer and these are as below.

Worcester Greenstar 42CDI Classic Condensing Combi Baxi Platinum 40 Combi
Price £1817.50 inc VAT£1514.58 Excl. VAT £1156.80 inc VAT £964.00 Excl. VAT. SAVE £660

The above is a great comparison of the size of the Worcester Bosch boiler and its output. The price tag is enormous for a boiler that will last exactly the same amount of time. The Platinum has another 5 Years’ worth of manufacturer’s warranty and saves over £650 on the starting cost. On the Worcester boiler water deliver is higher but it will not give a significant difference in flow.
