Main Boilers: Compare Efficiency, Warranty & Price
Main Heating, a subsidiary of Baxi, has an impressive 75 years of experience in manufacturing domestic gas appliances and are proud of their ‘straightforward’, ‘no frills’ approach to heating solutions.
While Main boilers have a lower price tag than many other manufacturers, there units are still highly reliable models. If you’re looking for a new boiler that won’t break the bank then a Main boiler is a great choice. When comparing boilers, there are a few things that you’ll need consider as part of the comparison: output rating, efficiency, warranty and price. We already know that Main boilers are affordable but let’s take a look at the importance of each of these.
Output rating: Install a boiler with the wrong output rating and you could end up with a heating system that fails to meet demand or will cause your energy bills to increase. The output rating is measured in kilowatts (kW) and reflects the power of the boiler in terms of how much heating and hot water it will be able to provide to your home.
Efficiency: The process of burning natural gas produces usable energy and waste gases. When looking for a new boiler, you want a boiler that converts as much of the fuel as possible into usable energy – this is shown as a boiler’s efficiency rating. A boiler with a high efficiency rating could help to lower your energy bills.
Warranty: A boiler is a big investment so it’s good to know that you’re covered after the installation. And this is where the warranty comes in. A warranty is a promise from the manufacturer that they’ll cover the parts and/or labour in the event of a fault. Boilers come with a 1 year warranty as standard with manufacturers offering longer warranties on many of their boilers. Main boilers come with warranty periods of 3-5 years.
Price: Main boilers are a budget-friendly option with units ranging from around £600 to £700.

Main boiler warranty
Every boiler manufacturer offers a standard warranty with their boilers which last between 1-10 years. The warranty is your insurance policy and means if a fault develops the manufacturer will resolve it within a specified time frame. Some warranties include both parts and labour while others may only cover parts. The most important thing to remember is to get your boiler serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer every year as failing to do so is likely to invalidate your warranty.
