    Opening fireplace and inserting lintel

    I still haven't decided what is best visually. Any thoughts? I am leaning towards keeping it square. So I guess that would mean removing 2-3 courses of brick above the current steel lintel. This would mean 80-85 cms high and wide I believe (need to find the tape measure). You say my "lintels"...

    Opening fireplace and inserting lintel

    Thanks Vinn. The installer was HETAS. He essentially said that the opening would be more than big enough for a 4-5kw burner. It can't be too big can it? I am not planning on installing the burner myself - I will get a HETAS in - probably the guy who already took a look. There is adequate...

    Vaillant ecoTEC plus - Hot water goes cold

    Really? Strange, it has the Celsius sign next to it. When I press the button, it says 5.31 (or is it S.31) which drops to 5.21 when I turn the water on, and then climbs back up to 5.24.
