POTTERTON BOILERS

Potterton boilers are a U.K based boiler company that has been operating since 1850. Potterton was acquired by Baxi heating in 1999 and Baxi is part of BDR Thermea Group, a European boiler manufacturer.

Potterton, like Baxi, are reliable mid-range boilers, you won’t get the additional extras you would get with a Vaillant or Worcester Bosch boiler but you will get a solid boiler at a reasonable price.

Potterton Boilers

Potterton boilers are solid mid-range boilers made by Baxi. Potterton, as you would expect, makes very similar boilers to Baxi, with similar engineer and customer feedback.

Potterton (and Baxi) boilers are very reliable with no significant drawbacks. There are, however, very similar boilers in the same bracket, such as Ideal boilers, which do the same job at a slightly cheaper price.

WarmZilla recommends Ideal boilers if you’re looking for a reliable mid-range boiler. Our Ideal boilers come with a massive 8-year guarantee and start from just £1549 for the Ideal Logic range, which is a great price for a mid-range boiler with the reputation and aftercare Ideal offer.

Potterton offers a range of combi, system, and regular boilers. If you aren’t sure what boiler type you have, check out our blog, it’s important to know your boiler type before getting any boiler quotes.

Once you know what boiler type you’re looking for, you can use the WarmZilla boiler comparison function below. Just select up to 3 boilers you want to compare and you’ll be able to compare key stats side by side to see which Potterton (or another boiler brand) is best for you.

All appliances that burn wood or fossil fuels (such as natural gas) can produce poisonous Carbon Monoxide if they are not working properly, so it is important to keep your boiler in good condition to avoid any risks.

Having your boiler annually serviced also keeps your boiler warranty valid. Potterton warranty requires your boiler to be annually serviced by a Gas Safe Engineer. Failure to do so could not only invalidate your warranty but also lead to expensive repair bills on your boiler.

What will your Gas Safe Engineer will check during your boiler service?

  • That your boiler has the correct gas pressure and flow.
  • The flue and combustion. A flue gas analyser will be used to make sure the boiler is burning the right mixture of gas and air that your boiler flue is not blocked.
  • Your electrical connections are clean and in good condition.
  • That your fans and other key components are working efficiently.
  • That your boiler seals are intact.
  • Your electrodes are in good condition.
  • That all safety devices are checked.
  • That your condensate pipe and trap are not blocked.
  • That your water and gas pipework is in working order.

Your Gas Safe Engineer should also inform you that if your boiler does not meet building and safety legislation and regulations during their checks.

As a guide, a boiler service should take at least half an hour and you should receive a full service report once your boiler service is complete.
