If you’re looking for a new boiler, the quick guide below will help you shortlist all brands and models, to only those that only have long warranties.
We’ll focus on boilers with a 10-year guarantee as a minimum.
The difference in price between a boiler with a 10-year warranty, and one with say, 2-years, isn’t much. For a typical 24kw unit, you’d expect the price difference to be around £200.
Essentially, you’re paying £25 per year, for each additional year of warranty. In our opinion, that’s an absolute bargain when you consider the overall purchase could be in the thousands, including installation.
The difference in price will be in relation to the purchase price of the boiler only, and not the cost of labour for the installation; that’s going to be the same.
A typical installation in an average home (24kw-30kw unit) is going to cost around £2,000. It’s hardly worth saving £200 on a low warranty boiler, when you then risk having to foot the bill for a new £2,000+ installation, just a few years down the line.
A boiler with a 5-year warranty is what we’d recommend as a minimum. If a brand is offering a 5-10+ year warranty, that’s suggesting they have confidence that their products have longevity.
A boiler with a 2-year warranty? Not so much…
But, if you have the budget to stretch to a boiler with a 10-year warranty, that’s advisable.
Depending on model, you’ll find various installers offering warranties of 5-10 years on Worcester Bosch boilers.
However, we’d suggest heading over to BOXT. They’re part owned by Bosch.
They not only offer preferential rates on Worcester Bosch boilers, they’re also able to offer them with a long warranty. At time of writing, all Worcester boilers listed on their website come with a 10-year warranty.
You can get a price for your new boiler on screen inclusive of that warranty by clicking here.
If you’d prefer product from a company asides from Worcester, or have a local installer that prefers to fit alternative brands, here are a few specific boiler models worth looking at:

*The Vaillant boilers mentioned above need to be fitted by an “Advance” installer, and installed alongside a Boiler Protection kit, for Vaillant to honour the warranty.
