    Public liability insurance for part time

    You would obtain Public Liability Insurance in exactly the same way and it is unaffected by you being part time. The only down side is that you will more than likely be paying the same price as a full time individual. The insurer would expect you to be competant and capable of performing the...

    Vaillant ecoTEC OR GlowWorm Flexicom to replace old GlowWorm

    It is in fact £562.61 (inc. VAT) from the DiscountedHeating website which is the best price I've seen but as has previously been said, warranty requires the engineer to supply and fit. I will want a warranty so will only be using the price found as a guideline but thanks anyway. P.S. What...

    Vaillant ecoTEC OR GlowWorm Flexicom to replace old GlowWorm

    Thanks Dave, that's perfect... Didn't realise so much needed to be done, but the more I read the more I notice that replacing the boiler also involves a upgrade of many other parts of the central heating system too. I guess this is a combination of being health and safety compliant, energy...

    Vaillant ecoTEC OR GlowWorm Flexicom to replace old GlowWorm

    OK, so let's assume I am going for the ecoTEC Plus 415... Does an installer need to do any other work than remove old boiler, powerflush, install new boiler? Is there any additional wiring, piping or flue issues, etc? Just want to get an idea of what the installer will be charging me for...

    Vaillant ecoTEC OR GlowWorm Flexicom to replace old GlowWorm

    I will be happy if my new boiler lasts half as long as my old one (been there since 1988). I always have it annually serviced which should hopefully keep it going a bit longer. I have a Grundfos Selectric UPS 15-50 pump which I think is on it's max setting at the moment so no change there...

    Vaillant ecoTEC OR GlowWorm Flexicom to replace old GlowWorm

    Replacing Honeywell ST699 CH/HW Programmer with ST799 Model

    it's a shame i can't just buy the front cover really if this is the case but new st799 now on order. i'm glad it's the "easier" of the two options. i assume when i get the cover off there is some kind of wire connecting it to the backplate and that is the only one i need to disconnect and...
