Choosing the best oil boiler brand
In May and June 2020 we surveyed 7,500 people about their boilers. We asked them to tell us about any breakdowns, problems and annoyances with their boiler. This enables us to rate how reliable each brand is.
We also asked them to assess how satisfied they were, and how likely they would be to recommend their brand of boiler (regardless of their experience of getting the boiler installed). These two questions form the basis of the Which? customer satisfaction score.
As well as gathering the views of people who own each brand of boiler, we also collect the views of heating engineers who work with boilers every day. In June 2020 we asked almost 153 heating engineers about their views on the availability of parts and spares and how easy each brands boilers are to fix and service.
