    is it possile to upgrade old upvc units with modern glass?

    what would be the best most energy efficient units I could put in at the most cost effective price point? don't want to spend a fortune trying to get that last little bit of heat retention if it wont make that much difference.

    upvc front door glass has dropped

    ok this is nuts. the door is only maybe 6 years old. think when the nice weather arrives ill take the panel out and have a go at repositioning the glass then use some expanding foam round the edges to hold it in place. ill leave it laid flat while the foam hardens.

    is it possile to upgrade old upvc units with modern glass?

    we have some perfectly usable upvc units with double glazing that has what looks like double the old single row of holes type beading between the panes, sorry for not knowing the actual thickness. anyway is it possible and presumably cheaper to just replace the glass with something like argon...

    upvc front door glass has dropped

    got a upvc front door with a nice arch in white plastic. trouble is the square double glazed glass has dropped, and exposed the fact its actually only held in place by double sided tape and a bit of silicone to seal it. ive briefly spoken to a window company who when I described the issue said...

    intergas hre 24 best setup with existing S plan?

    I did reply to the thread today. but the only reply ive had is to change it to a mid port system. so if I do this will it, if my theory is correct, give me time control and power control.

    intergas hre 24 best setup with existing S plan?

    this has been partially solved on this thread: http://www.ultimatehandyman.co.uk/forum1/intergas-hre-24-best-setup-with-existing-s-plan-t82080.html what I need to know is if I'm on the right track by using a relay as described by Razor, but with the difference in that I wonder if its possible...

    ideal classic RS250 kettling

    your guess is as good as mine. we moved in nearly a year ago, and didn't find much evidence of servicing. when I had the cover off I found no end of crap laid in it. how much should a service cost? would they take the covers off the heat exchanger and check its not full of crap also? oh...

    ideal classic RS250 kettling

    forgot to mention since using the x400, and leaving it in the system permanently the kettling seems to have all but gone, just has a wheezing sound now bit like a kettle just starting up.

    ideal classic RS250 kettling

    some on here may remember the problem of the kettling rs250. well today I did some gas consumption tests. this has flagged up a possible cause for the slow heatup, kettling, and crazy temps on the bottom of the heat exchanger but no where else. ive checked the manual and as follows...

    ideal vogue or intergas combi?

    ok just cutting in here. do I need then to tell my parents to make sure he fits a TMV on the DHW? do I need to tell them to make sure he fits the weather compensation sensor? just a side note. I used to be a HVAC control panel engineer and we used to fit weather compensators to most...

    intergas combi 36/30 too big?

    my parents have been told there bungalow will need a 36/30 to replace a swiftflow 80. my parents don't heat the whole place up all the time and generally like it cooler. so im not sure if the plumber has looked at them and assumed big boiler for old people. the bungalow was built in about...

    ideal vogue or intergas combi?

    hes an intergas platinum installer, so fingers crossed he knows how to commission properly. I have had my faith in trades dented more than once when it dawns on me I know more than they do. I did wonder why an intergas installer would recommend the vogue. I can only assume its because they...

    ideal vogue or intergas combi?

    thanks all, especially Dan. think my parents, and probably me later on (albeit a system boiler), are gonna go intergas. I like the look of the internals, uncomplicated, unlike the vogue which looks like a optimus prime blown up into pieces. there old swiftflow must have been running the...

    ideal vogue or intergas combi?

    had a look at the vogues manual and it look a nightmare. plus it has a plate to plate. I think the plumber suggesting the vogue is suggesting it because, apparently, ideal do the repairs within the first 10 years not him.

    ideal vogue or intergas combi?

    probably horses for courses, but I thought id ask which is the better boiler? or indeed if there is a better option? points to add: its going in an existing system that's nearly 20 years old. the mains water has about 250-300 ppm scale.
