Hi
I recently purchased a flat which has an old back boiler with an ancient pilot light gas fire.
I have been shopping around for a decent price to upgrade this system.
Looking for some opinions on the quote I got
Complete price to fit a Alpha inTEC 28 X condensing combi boiler comes in at £1,948.20
As the current system is so old I am entitled to the £400 scrappage scheme voucher along with some other discounts the price comes in at £1,378.00
I feel like I am a bit out of my depth with it all. Can any one offer any advise or opinions on the above?

Feel free to ask any questions
Cheers
