    personally I wouldn't fit either, logics are crap, if you haven't had any problems with your old boiler why is it time for a new one 🤔
    I'm only here while I wait for Corrie to start.

    You get no BS from me & if I think you are wrong I WILL tell you.

    Agree with the above, who is telling you you need a new boiler?

    How old is your existing Bosch? Why is it time for a new boiler if you have never had any problems with it.

    If it was on its last legs with ongoing problems,  I would go for Vaillant.

    If not get it serviced by someone who is not trying to sell you a new boiler.

    Thank you everyone  :) The Reason I wanted a new boiler is because it’s coming up to 10 years old and because I am disabled I need the heating on most of the time, I am just worried if the boiler starts having problems I could be without any heating and my body just couldn’t cope so thought it best to buy a new one, it may seem extreme to some but I need the heating. I will discuss everything with my husband but thank you all very much x x take care everyone  :)

    10 years is nothing in the life of a good, working boiler. What's to say that you spend all this money replacing it and the new boiler has a fault.

    Why do you say that?

    Condenser or not, a well maintained, regularly serviced, combi boiler can easily last 10 years and much more. There really isn't any MSE reason to "upgrade" a 10 year old working boiler, quite the opposite.

    So buy a few electric heaters, so that in the event that the boiler fails, you can use them while yours is repaired or replaced.
    This is a classic case of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'!
    Just get it serviced, and maybe ask the service guy what parts typically fail on your model - you could always buy 1 of each part he suggests so that in the event it does fail, you won't have any delays getting parts.
