its possessed!

Advantageswhen it works its pretty good

Disadvantagesdoesnt work which is often, expensive to figure out the problem

"...new heat exchanger by a ravenheat plumber and everythings been fine since then, apart from the last fortnight now it seems to be happening again but now its not even trying to kick in it just turns itself off when it feels like it and the hot water isnt constant. when it works its brilliant and when it doesnt which is often its not the easiest thing to fix. i want to smash it up as it will cost me yet again more money which i dont have. when installing ..."

Quick review of Ravenheat Condensing Combi Boiler

"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!!

Don't touch Ravenheat CSI-85 boilers with a barge pole!

AdvantagesEnables you to appreciate how people lived in the days before boilers and central heating

DisadvantagesUnreliable in the true sense of the word

"...were eventually solved by a Ravenheat technician coming out working with the plumber. Operated without any major hitches for first 18 months, then started to go wrong - horribly wrong. Fortunately, we've had insurance cover but as of today (£1200 worth of repairs since January this year) - the insurer will no longer cover us - 14 day cancellation clause! Looking back through the numerous service reports, we've had 12 breakdowns in the last five ..." Read review

Ravenheat good price

AdvantagesGood price reliable boiler with long no nonsense warranty 3 years

Disadvantagesnew models not all available in silver

"...development and have used a ravenheat boiler. They come with a three year warranty now, bit annoying as my one was purchased before they extended the warranty from one year. When i contacted them they did offer me an extention but at a cost, decided not to bother as to date nothing has gone wrong. Which is why they probably offer a three year warranty as they don't seem to have increased the price. Free tip look at there CSI85 B cheap as chips and ..." Read review

ravenheat reborn ?

Advantages3 year parts and labour guarantee

DisadvantagesBad reputation, time will tell if the NEW boilers are any good.

"...would never touch an old Ravenheat boiler with a 10 foot bargepole. However recently I had to fit a replacement boiler for a landlord and as usual he wanted the job done as cheaply as possible. Out of choice I fit Vaillant boilers but this was never going to be an option with the amount of money that was offered. My local merchant tried to sell me one of Ravenheat's NEW condensing boilers. I was very sceptical but was assured that the new generation ..." Read review

For once its not the manufacturers fault

AdvantagesI have put down as good as you allow them to be

DisadvantagesYou have to pay for a good installation enginner who would have flushed your system

"...the comments on about a ravenheat pump banging is about to replace a boiler and have the same problem with the next one, I had a similar problem I blamed the manufacturer which was a german brand. Its your system that is full of debris and its gathering in the pump and restricting the boiler operations and making the banging and probably causing damage to other areas of the boiler. Speak to a plumber and get your system flushed out make sure you shop ..." Read review
