    yes pull off bottom trim under the fire and you will see customers stat dial.but if it has not been serviced recently it may be in need of a clean

    Ah this brings me back to my old bermuda back boiler. I had nothing but trouble with it since I moved in. Like you the rads were not hot enough. Recently changed the boiler to a baxi 105he and the rads are now extremly hot. The plumber said the old boiler was just not up to the job which seems right now.

    The back boiler if its operating properly and has had its annual service is quite capable of giving a nice 82 ° C flow to the radiators.

    Its very inefficient but reliable as long as it has its annual service which is needed on safety grounds.

    the bermuda range must be crap as they sold so many of them.
    I agree with Agile. regular servicing will keep a BBU in working order longer than a modern boiler.
