    Hi all,

    Thinking of converting my immersion heater system to Combi Boiler to remove tanks and create more space. Any recommendations on a new Combi Boiler ?


    Thanks
    Kasey

    Stick to reputable brands if poss. Vailiant, Worcester Bosch, Baxis etc.
    Recently i have been fitting baxi platinums they are expensive but look great perform well and come with a 5 year guarentee. However, Ariston are beginning to look quite descent. They give a 5 year guarentee and the boilers can be picked up for around £600.

    no..electric shower runs off mains water (cold) only and is heated by an element similar to a kettle

    to supply and fit new combi....take out existing cisterns and cylinders, flushing, trv's ? approx..dpending on area of country and boiler

    £2200 - 3200

    Thx Jamie then what about a Power Shower as that's what I have and not electric as previously thought as hot water comes from tank.

    Thx

    No a power shower must be fed by a cold water storage tank and hot water cylynder.Fitting one to a combi would be detrimental [or just plain mental].You need a mains pressure thermostatically controled shower for your combi..Buy a Baxi Platinum.......
