Ideal logic plus is the best gas boiler on the market for a number of reasons.

1. Reliable
2. Easy install
3. Long warranty out of the box. 7 or 10 years.
4. Easy to fault find and fix.
5. Very good aftersales back up if you do have an issue. Ideal are a super helpful company.
6. Simple plain English customer display. Not just silly error codes.


Over the years my mates all had a preference for different manufacturers. Baxi, Worcester, valiant, ariston (**** knows why) etc etc. All bar one now fits logics, and he fits valiant.

What do you reckon on the idealís? Looked at a house and the boiler definitely needs doing and my mate whoís a gas engineer rates them highly.

Iíve owned a heating service and repair business for the last fifteen years. I ****ing hate Worcesters. I could bore you all day with why they are ****.

The netaheat electronic Is getting very old. My guess it the vibration you are hearing/ feeling isnít from the boiler. Itís mostly likely just the water pump. Iíd say the boiler isnít actually doing much.

If you do choose to get a combi fitted have a viessmann installed, quality boilers and if installed by a approved installer come with a 10 year warranty but have an engineer look at your existing boiler might be an easy fix

My Netaheat has an electronic ignition. The fan starts up causes a vacuum which closes a switch which in turn opens the gas valve and then the electronic ignition comes into play.
Stand to be corrected but that's why I think the fan has gone faulty/noisy

Not seen one for years but from memory they have a pilot lite which ignites the gas when the valve opens so that is the first thing to check.

Everything seems to be being made to not last. Iím replacing Velux that are 25-40years old most days but Iím now also replacing the last generation that are about 15 years old.

Everyoneís making everything to last the guarantee and thatís it.

To the op: your best bet is getting a few engineers round for an opinion on the overall state of the boiler and having it repaired or replaced based on their opinions.

I get that. The boiler could be repaired and something else can go wrong the next day but the Netaheats have a reputation of keep on going and going that's why companies such as the one in my link still stock parts.
From what I can gather new boilers have a relatively short life, nowhere near 30 years
