Want to know why Worcester Bosch boilers are better than other brands? Or at least, why people seem to think they’re the best?
After all, they’re the current market leader. There must be a reason so many people are spending extra on Worcester Bosch boilers, filters and controls, right?
If you’re looking for a new boiler, you’ve probably got a lot on your mind, such as:
- How will you know you’re getting value for money?
- What’s the best type of boiler for your home?
- Who’s the right person to fit your new boiler?
As an experienced Edinburgh heating engineer, I’ve made no secret of being a huge Worcester Bosch supporter over the years. And for good reason!
Let me explain more about what makes Worcester Bosch boilers come out on top, every time.
1. Fantastic reliability, longevity and reputation
Worcester Bosch boilers are known for being truly built to last. Over the years, they’ve earned the trust of homeowners right across the UK and Europe. They’re manufactured with quality components, and are probably my favourite brand to fit. I rarely encounter any problems with them, and they usually go at least 10 – 15 years without ever needing much attention (aside from an annual service!).
All of this is why they have been Which’s Best Buy (more about that below) for around 7 years now. They also have great, no-quibble guarantees that last up to 10 years, but that deserves a section of its own.
2. Boilers to suit any home and situation
Another thing about Worcester Bosch is that whatever your needs are, they’ve been catered for. They have a boiler to suit just about any home and situation, including a compact range. This is particularly great for fitting in tight spaces, like a kitchen cupboard or Edinburgh press!
The brand manufactures regular, system and combi boilers all a wide variety of sizes and outputs. So versatile!
3. The best no-quibble guarantee on the market
Choosing a Worcester Bosch installer means you’ll have access to one of the longest, most comprehensive no-quibble guarantees on the market today. Up to 10 years! This guarantee not only covers your boiler, but also the brand’s own filter and controls, too. That’s a pretty damn good deal, if you ask me!
I always recommend paying a wee bit extra for the filter and controls to my customers, because this truly is a great guarantee. Unlike some other brands, there’s no complex small print or anything to catch you out. And no unexpected charges to your credit card! In my opinion, all companies should be like this.
4. Dedicated engineers to attend call-outs
Worcester Bosch just happen to have dedicated, fully-trained engineers on standby in the unlikely event that anything should go wrong with your boiler. They spend all of their time working on Worcester Bosch boilers just like yours. This is great for peace of mind, and knowing your boiler will be in the best possible hands.
Again, it’s worth noting that not all boiler companies do this. Some may use local contractors or agents to cover the warranty side of things, and deal with call-outs. The problem there is that you’ll never know if they have much experience with your boiler model or brand.
5. Parts readily available in the UK
Although Worcester was originally a British company, their boilers are now engineered in Germany (when they were taken over by Bosch). The good news is that they still have a UK manufacturing plant, so parts are readily available right here in the UK!
Because of this, Worcester Bosch parts can be sourced easily and cheaply. This is good to know later down the line, once your boiler’s guarantee has run out. It’s always worth replacing parts on a Worcester Bosch, as they can usually go on for up to 20+ years.
6. Accredited engineers
Worcester Bosch accredited engineers have gone through thorough training and know the brand’s boilers inside and out. If you hire a Worcester Bosch accredited installer, you can take advantage of various benefits, including:
- Extra long guarantees
- Expert knowledge and training
- Excellent advice and tips
- Ultimate peace of mind
TIP: Here are some of the best Worcester Bosch accredited installers in Edinburgh!
7. Great package deals
As a company, Worcester Bosch want you to get the most out of your investment. That’s why they recommend all their gas boilers are fitted with their own-brand magnetic filter and controls. This will help prolong the life of your boiler, and ensure you’re getting the most value for money.
Plus, when you buy all three together, they’ll all be covered for the life of your guarantee! Which could be up to 10 years, depending on the boiler you choose.
8. They’re a Which ‘Best Buy’ regular
And lastly, don’t just listen to me saying Worcester Bosch boilers are better than others! The brand has been voted Which? ‘Best Buy’ for the past 7 years. Not only are they a favourite with homeowners, but they’re also rated by engineers! But why are they voted so highly? Well, mainly because of all of the reasons above.
Now, I don’t think ANYONE can argue with that!
I hope you’ve found this blog resourceful. There’s are SO many reasons (or at least 8!) that Worcester Bosch boilers are better than other brands. Of course, there are also reasons to choose other brands. But in terms of longevity, reliability and value? There’s no-one else out there who can compete on quite the same level.
