“Terrible, broke down twice in 9 months”

Written on: 19/01/2016 by shanajackson (1 review written)

we moved into our house two years ago and the combi boiler has broken three times in that period. Ok it is around 10 years old, but the plumber who fixed it has said the parts are like chocolate very easy to break, very unreliable. Anyway, we have spent over £200 fixing it. We are now saving for a new one with a better reputation worchester or vaillant. Anyway, my advice is to avoid this boiler at all costs… Read Full Review

“Not Ideal”

Written on: 08/11/2015 by sam666 (1 review written)

The boiler came with our new house and for the first 3 years didn't have any problems until last year when had to replace the pcb that cost me 70gbp so not bad at all and installing it was very easy. Yesterday, so about 16months later, the boiler stopped working. Ordering a new pcb hoping that it'll fix the problem. At the moment cannot afford to buy a new boiler so will have to survive somehow the winter and start saving up for a new boiler. It's a waste of time and money. Don't even consider… Read Full Review

“A very neet compact boiler but has some drawbacks.”

Written on: 25/04/2014

I have had the ISAR HE for about 2 years now and although I have had to buy and fit a new PCB within the guarantee, the boiler itself has performed quite well.The downside is, I have a fault, in that it is wasting Water and Gas. I will explain. Last year to save money we had a water metre fitted, with our eye's firmly on the usage and cost's. However when we have the heating running in the cold weather It will waste unto 3 gallons of water till it reaches temperature. This is because of the… Read Full Review

After sources our new boiler from a well know supplier every thing started to go wrong with it. New control board, heat exchanger and lots of other faults and parts. Having problems for past 2 months now insurance cover dosn't cover the fault as they say its the water at fault. Willing to scrap it at any cost and start again… Read Full Review

Agreement about the terrible review above...Worse mistake to have our immersion water heating removed and have it replaced with this bag of sh.t!Problems from the word go...now left with no heating no hot water and no means of getting a replacement since this was through a government heating scheme...Single mum and will have a 3rd cold winter with no heating or hot water… Read Full Review

After 11 years and on average call out of British Gas at least 3 times a year, we have had it removed , every engineer without exception has said what a load of rubbish they are!! The last straw with us was a major water leak from within pile of junk causing major damage to wall and ceilings, The Idiot at BG call centre asked for policy number even after answering Hello Mr Faithorn , sorry to say the F word came out as I was trying to contain the water.

We had a ideal isar installed by a government grant ,warmfront installation . They threw them in !.What did I expect for a freebee . The boiler broke down two to three times a year .

I agree,what a total pile of kak ! And British 'rip off' gas actually fit these things !
I had to change the aav on one recently,it's right in the back corner and you have to strip half the boiler down to get to it ! Such a bad design of boiler in every way,give me Vaillant quality any day.

“Shame on British Gas”

Written on: 20/01/2013

This boiler , the Ideal Isar, was recommended and installed by by British Gas. My husband and I were pensioners when we signed up for the credit agreement. If We had only been told that it would cost us over twice the £6000 installation charges we would never have signed on the dotted line. My husband died in December 2010 and we had already paid out £6000+ with another 5 years to go.After a further year of struggling the debt got out of my control and for several months I received letters… Read Full Review

“2 faults a year for 5 years and now condemned”

Written on: 13/01/2013

If you want to waste lots of your life waiting for British Gas Engineers (who I still believe to this day are culpable for this over priced rubbish installation), then go for this boiler. The only reason this boiler gets one star is there is no option for zero stars. Electrical failures, leaks, mechanical parts breaking down. There was nothing left to try and fix so it's now condemned. Thanks Ideal and thanks British Gas. You are both a waste of space and have cost us time, effort and… Read Full Review

“Unreliable heap of trash”

Written on: 19/12/2012 by chrissie2 (1 review written)

Had this installed under the warmfront scheme in 2007. Nothing but trouble from the start. Each time it broke down warmfront took up to 2 weeks to repair, so I insured with british gas and I get an excellent service. I have called them out at least five times this year, lost count of the number of visits from subsequent years. If I could afford to replace it I would… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/11/2012

Had an Ideal Isar Boiler for 7 years now and have had at least 3/4 major problems eash year. The boiler has now had all parts replaced. Latest incident is the pump has melted following boiler overheating. Engineer has attempted to blame contractors who have recently fitted new bathroom and had to empty sytem. Ideal Boiler Maintenance have actually advised to the contrary and says boiler should have cut out. Can anybody confirm which information is correct

I had the misfortune to have had this boiler fitted in 2006 and so far we have had nothing but trouble... 2 years ago I had to move out for a week while it was fixed, that entailed getting a new pump, this time it was the expansion valve that went bang and following that episode it needs topping up every week I'm just waiting for it to be replaced on the Corgi homeplan scheme I have had to take out Truly dreadful DO NOT BUY… Read Full Review
