    Looking at fitting the joule 200L horizontal cylinder in the house Refurb I'm doing.

    I have a bungalow that will be three bed, main bath and shower room.

    The tank is going in the eaves hence being horizontal. The joule offers the best size for this and has the fittings in the right place as standard.
    It's also seems to be well recommend if horizontal is the only option.

    I have approx 20kw worth of underfloor heating to heat over 8 zones 73L water.

    From previous threads the intergas RF 24 seems to fit the bill. Please confirm or offer alternative?

    Would it be possible to use the Combi side of this boiler to feed the kitchen; will have dishwasher so really only for washing hands and rinsing. Then let the joule do the bathrooms.

    Need to measure flow but not worried as just replaced the lead with new 25mm blue.

    Gonna measure flow soon though before I buy anything.

    What flow do I need?

    Need to get a heating engineer as well so will take advice again when finally in position to have these fitted.

    If the flow measures OK for the Joule than yes it can be used as a combi for the kitchen no problem, the intergas and the Joule are a good combination to be honest

    yes they are off the same circuit but have seperate controls, the UFH has blending valves which stop the water getting too hot
