Now on our second Keston boiler in just seven years the first one being written off after 5 years due to numerous failures. In 2011 we had a Keston Quedos 28h installed, in the mistaken belief that a new model would provide a better service. Surely enough after 1 year it developed a leak ,then as though it was programmed to self destruct just as the warranty ran out, ( February 2013) the PCB failed and the external flue hoses had also perished. Keston were only too pleased to replace the parts at a cost of £240. But we were left in the cold for 2 weeks as one engineer turned up and said he would have to order the parts,which took another week to be delivered ... Read the complete review

OK - I know this is going against the thread of just about all comments on here but I seriously have had a reliable (so far) Keston boiler for nearly 5 years! It did once have a problem with a build-up of scale but that was sorted easily.I bought it because of the muPVC flue and the fact that it enabled me to have a long run with the boiler on an internal wall. Immediately I installed it, I started reading all the poor reviews and horror stories. I lived in near fear for a couple of years but so far so good!Maybe I've been lucky - but anyway I've decided, because of it's age (for a condensing combi) that I'm now going to take out a British Gas contract.

We had a Keston 130 fitted 10 years ago. It was expensive, but that's what the installer recommended, and we thought we were buying quality (wrong!). It has been nothing but trouble. It is now on its third gas fan - costing £450 per time! It looks well made inside, but in practice it has been really really unreliable. Had it fixed again a few months back and recently it has started making noises that it shouldn't, which to me indicates it is going to fail again. Rather than pouring money down the drain, I'm now minded to replace it. From all I've read on the internet, and advice from boiler guys, Worcester Bosch or Valient are the way to go.

We purchased, after professional advice, a rig of 3x C55 boilers. The advice was that they would be the most efficient boilers and save us the money we were looking to save both in the short and long term. BUT... less than 8 years of service life, the boilers have had the following; Boiler 1: 4x new fan mechanisms, 1 new heat exchanger (and now needs another), new flu, 15x igniters, re-wiring, Boiler 2: 3x new fan mechanisms, 1 new heat exchanger (and needs a new one now), new flu, 12 x igniters, gas valve Boiler 3: 3x new fan mechanisms, 1 new heat exchanger (see note below), new flu, 12 x igniters - Boiler 3 has also been completely ...
