Both Viessmann, the new German brand on the block which is storming the market with massive warranties and super reliable boilers, and Worcester Bosch offer good warranties.

It must be said though, that Viessmann offers some outstanding warranty lengths compared to Worcester Bosch.

When a manufacturer offers a long warranty, you know that they back their boilers.

Viessmann is a German brand that has stormed the UK market since the last 5 years and are putting many Worcester Bosch lovers at shame.

Most Viessmann boilers have a standard warranty length of 10 years as Worcester Bosch have just 5 years on their latest 2020 boiler.

What Type of New Boiler do you Need?

Do you need to purchase the best combi boiler, best system boiler or best regular boiler?

A combi boiler is a one-unit system that will live in a standard kitchen cupboard and is suitable for homes with up to five bedrooms depending on which size output flow rate is chosen.

The downside to a combi boiler is if you have multiple showers or baths to be used at once a combi boiler may struggle to provide hot water by demand.

A system boiler is a boiler with a unit which will live in a kitchen cupboard and a hot water cylinder which will live in the airing cupboard.

best system boilers

A system boiler stores hot water so that you can have a hot water supply on demand to multiple taps at once.

System boilers are recommended for old traditional homes and homes with five or more bedrooms and multiple bathrooms.

A regular boiler, also known as a traditional, conventional or heat only boiler are suitable for large, old traditional homes with multiple bathrooms.

The reason they are recommended to old homes is because of the system they work is similar to old systems and are the oldest boiler systems around.

System boilers have a hot water cylinder to live in the airing cupboard, the cold water tank is to live in the loft, and the boiler unit itself will live in a kitchen cupboard.

The difference between the regular boiler and the system boiler is that a system boiler takes the cold water from the mains and the regular boiler stores all the water.

A regular boiler is highly recommended if you have extra storage space available to store all of the boiler’s parts and if you have a large 5 bedroom home that has a high water demand at once.

The difference between the combi boiler, system boiler, and the regular boiler is that the combi boiler is a 1 unit boiler. Generally, combi boiler costs are slightly less than a regular or the system boiler of the equivalent model.

In contrast, the system boiler comes with a boiler and a hot water cylinder, and the regular boiler comes with the boiler, hot water cylinder, and cold water tank.


Yourself or your Gas Safe engineer would decide which boiler type and which kW you would need to run your home to the best ability for the lowest price.

What does kW Stand For?

The output flow rate of the boiler is also known as Kilowatt (kW).

The kW size is chosen on the size of your home and the number of bathrooms you have.

The Kilowatt rating needs to be the correct size for your home otherwise the boiler will not be able to manage to run your home’s hot water and heating demands to the best ability if it is too small.

If the kW is too large, you will be paying more than is needed to run your home comfortably.
