Near enough to be ok for this time of year, it a bit sad that when people say hot water at 13litres a minute, they don't also mention that the cold water is raised by 35degC to hot at the 13 litres/min flow rate. And cold water temp varies a lot from winter to summer. Lol. javascript:emoticon(';)')When I fit a combi I check their flow rate of cold water and tell them what they can expect rather than giving them an unpleasant surprise later on.

But all of this would have been easily tested and explained to you if only you had employed a conscientious gas registered installer!

If you dont have the boiler serviced and documented every year then the warranty is voided!

You are very lucky having an Ideal boiler that tests at 98% efficient!

That will be exceeding the makers specifications!

They may want to know why as it could take the market by storm if they could make all their boilers so efficient!
