Main have established themselves in the UK domestic heating market with over 75 years of experience giving customers, simple, reliable and affordable boilers. Manufacturing in the UK, they are part of the wider, worldwide Baxi group, meaning Main customers can be reassured by the massive customer support they have behind them.
Main are part of the Baxi group and offer simple, straightforward and affordable boilers. Their goal is to make their boilers usable and efficient, rather than adding complex technology, to make them easy to install and service, and easy and simple for homeowners to use.
As standard they offer a 2-3 year warranty with their boilers which is comparable to their competitors in their price range. However, Main offer an up to 7 year guarantee as an optional extra thanks to being owned by Baxi – giving customers even more peace of mind.
Main offer a range of affordable boilers that includes Combi, System, and Regular. They have a business ethos that means they are proud to offer a range that is simple and easy to use, making them the perfect choice for any home that wants their heating and hot water to be as uncomplicated as possible. They have designed their entire range to be without expensive features and complex technologies so they are straightforward to use.
Just because Main enjoy and emphasise simplicity in their range, doesn’t mean that they aren’t still reliable, or that they can’t hold their own against many of their higher priced competitors. Some of their most popular boilers are certified to work with 20% hydrogen mix fuel, across all their different boiler types, so just like a boiler from their parent company Baxi, they are designing their range with the future in mind.
Main are also a great choice for installers too. All their boilers are designed with a light lift weight to make them easier to move and fit, they are also designed to be compact enough to fit in a kitchen cupboard, so they are unobtrusive and out of the way once installed.
Affordability is one of the most important factors when it comes to Main boilers. They are one of the most reliable brands on the market, and at their price point they do a remarkable job of keeping up with their higher priced competitors.
At the lower end of the price spectrum when it comes to boilers, a Main boiler can typically cost anywhere between £500-£750, depending on the boiler. When it comes to boiler pricing everything from the type of the boiler you get, whether that’s a combi, system or regular, to the size of the boiler and even the fuel type you need if it’s applicable will all have an effect on the overall cost.
The final piece of the puzzle to consider when it comes to deciding on a new boiler is its efficiency. Choosing a boiler that is cheaper to install but more expensive to run can be a detriment to your home’s finances in the longer term. Thankfully Main offer A rated boilers across their range. They may not be as efficient as some on the market that hit 94% efficiency, but you can rest assured that the likelihood is your new boiler will be more efficient than the one you’re replacing.
