    Floorstanding condensing system boilers

    Having chosen to go with an unvented cylinder in the loft, we'll be replacing our current floorstanding Glow Worm Hideaway with a more efficient system boiler. Ideally, one that will fit in the current space which is 850x600x600 so bigger than the current boiler. This makes it an easier...

    Faulty gas meter?

    I've recently been researching a new boiler etc and part of the drive is because we got the annual review from our first year in the house recently. The gas bill was massive! I complained the first time we had a bill but they kept fobbing me off with "it all balances itself out over a year" -...

    A washing machine a bouncy floor and a concrete slab

    Our washing machine (a Miele) can be felt or heard throught the whole house when on spin. It was fine in our last house on a concrete floor but in this one it seems the wooden floor is more bouncy than normal. We've had Miele out to check the machine and taking it outside onto the driveway...

    Mains pressure DHW what's best on limited flow?

    I think I'm near a conclusion now! It looks like an unvented is my most recommended option and we've gone through all the pro's and cons of the different approaches of combi/storage combi/heatbank/unvented. We still seem to have borderline flow though in terms of an unvented. Static...

    Worcester Bosch Highflow 440 - reliable?

    One of these looks techincally ideal for our purposes including the siting as we currently have a floorstander and a space in just it's right size. Wall mounted boilers seem to be a slight issue in that we seem to have downpipes or soil pipes or other things stopping the natural places in the...

    Where to source a small accumulator for mains water

    I may want to add a smallish accumulator to my mains water supply just to bolster the dynamic pressure for showering with whatever mains pressure DHW solution we end up with. I was thinking 60 or 80L of water should be more than enough as this should recharge between showers (we're getting...

    How much do combi boilers reduce flow - DHW alternatives

    Hi - sorry for long post but it's better to have all the facts up front right? :lol: We are planning to convert out loft which means I have to rethink our hot water supply options. For getting rid of the tanks and therefore gaining the most space, a combi seems the most obvious choice. I...

    Good quality hot water cylinders

    After going through the DHW supply options, I've decided it's best to replace our old grade 4 hot water cylinder with an indirect fast recovery cylinder. There seem to be 2 clear divisions in cylinders, basic BSI models which are all very similar and a vast range of enhanced versions which...

    Hot water cylinder questions and options

    Hi all, visited the site a few times over the years for useful tips but now I have a query of my own. We have a Glow Worm hideaway 70B which heats the cylinder in the loft via gravity. The central heating is operated via a single pump which a replaced the day after we moved in 9 months ago...
