Messy installation

Since moving into our house we have endured an evil, cantankerous and mischievous household item, loosely termed as a central heating boiler. We had other names for it !! After years of deep seated grief and mal intent, it started to play up even more than usual by losing ignition. A work...

We have had a ravenheat boiler now for just over three years and all i can say is thank god i've got insurance with scottish gas. The boiler breaks down at least four times a year. I would have spent hundreds getting it fixed by the heating engineer that fitted it. We only had it four months the first time it broke down, that is never a good sign. If i could afford to buy another one i would take the ravenheat boiler and put it too the rubbish tip, best place for it.

Good

Cheap to purchase, neat, normally performs well

Greater complexity may result in more problems

I have inherited this boiler with the recent move to our new home (last September). It was installed in 2005 and the previous owner said they had had one small problem that was fixed and that has not recurred. The boiler in my previous house was more traditional and very relaible. I liked the...

None so far

This Review is from a non technical aspect, but from a my personal point of view. When my boiler went last year I called a local plumber form the yellow pages and got him to come round and give me a quotation for replacing it. Me being me I decided not to settle for just one quote but to get a...

It doesnt work

I also have a dreaded Ravenheat combi condensing boiler (85T). It was the worst purchase I ever made. Unfortunately my trusty Vaillant broke down after 15 years and we needed a new boiler quickly. At the time they were being sold at B&Q for much less than others and seemed a good deal. The saying...

I have had a Ravenheat for 12 years come to replace it for condensing one now. I have been told by Bill plumber that the ravenheat energycatcher is most effient boiler you can buy why does nobody else have this magic box saves 10% more than any other boiler. Had the boiler installed still waiting for my first bill but it does what the manual says the steam going out of the pipe outside is room temperature where on the old one it was like a chuffing billy. This means all the heat is being used to warm the house. No opinion on the boiler it does the same as the last one its just a bit smaller.

I bought a ravenheat combi boiler just over 3yrs ago and have had nothing but problems with it. Only good thing about it was the price. It cuts off all the time and the water starts running cold and now the heating has started doing it too. Usually I can't get hot water unless I have the heating on at the same time which shouldn't be the case. Had a gas engineer out a few times but doesn't know what is wrong with it. Does anyone know what it may be? Thanks.

“Too many breakdowns”

Its a boiler

Very poor reliability, cost of spares

I have had this boiler for about 5 years now have spent something like £750 on repairs already, and if the plumber very kindly hadn't given his labour for free while fixing the latest fault it would have been even more! A few parts have failed and it has suffered a number of leaks, corroding the...

I would not recommend this boiler to anyone. We purchased this boiler 3years ago, the same time as a friend of ours, we both have experienced the same problems. This boiler is extremely noisy, this was mainly down to the pump....this was replaced....then is kept cutting out and not heating the water and as for the heating this just stopped working...we have finally got fed up with boiling kettles and grabbing a shower round my mum's... presently in the process of replacing with anything BUT a Ravenheat!!
