Morning all,

My mother's gas boiler has bitten the dust. Well, the guy said that the circuit board had blown and it costs over £400? (I don't think the actual boiler cost much more lol)

Anyway, she's looking for a new one.
Can anyone recommend an efficient/ reliable one at a reasonable price? (Standard non combi)

Cheers,
Dar :)

I was told 20 years ago that a Vaillant is the Rolls Royce of boilers. I had one in my previous house, and put one in here when I moved in 16 years ago. Wouldn't have anything else.

You can Always google it
Why would he google it and rely on information from people he doesn't know when he can ask people that he does know and trust to give their considered opinion. Its almost like we are a community on here.
Oh actually we are.

Thanks for the replies.

The Boiler is a Halstead Hero 50. It's been there for 14 years and only needed fixing once (new fan)
The guy that looked at it Friday, said the pcb had gone which is £450.
On Saturday we went up the nearest place to have a look, and we explained to the chap what had been told, and he got ob his computer and found a pcb for £260. So I'm not sure if the guy was trying to rip us off, or was looking at some other site?? Lol
I may get the 260 and try and put it in myself. :)

Worth a punt at £55 for the exchange board mate


Take a good photo before you remove the wires ;) Might help on refitting although it looks fool proof :)
