Boiler/heating Megathread - advice & recommendations, no jobs/quotes

Recommended Posts

Hello all, first of all, a thank you to everyone who has been helpful and contributing to this thread.  Our baxi Solo 3 50 Pfl is not working. One plumber we hired thought it was the fan and fitted a new fan but it's still not working, so he said he'll come back to fit a new fan censor, as he thought that might be the fault. But on the day he didn't show up and later told us he had an accident and couldn't come and finish the job. It happened just before Christmas. Have not been able to get hold of him since. Then we got a very helpful gas engineer to come and look at it and he thinks it's the circuit board that's gone faulty, due to the damp conditions in the cellar, where the boiler is.  Can anyone help please? Thanks. We are in s6. Jo

Not seen an updated post for years, any recommendations for a boiler service on a 2 year old boiler?

Does anyone know any plumbers in Sheffield that do the affordable energy scheme for free boilers?  I can only find suppliers outside Sheffield and would prefer a local company if at all possible?

Hi

 

I would like to install a Nest smart thermostat and I am doing some research about it. I am not going to fit it myself but will hire an electrician to do the job. But after reading about it, it seems that you need to make sure 1) it fit with your current heating system; 2) the wiring could be complicated (at least to me as a nobody in terms of wiring!)

 

I don't want to buy it and then realise it is not compatible with my property. So I would to ask how do I check if my property will be ok (I currently have a Worcester combi boiler that has a remote thermostat), and how should I choose electricians for this job, could any electrician do it?

 

Many thanks!

If the connection of the Hive thermostat to the boiler requires the removal of a non decrative boiler casing, then a Gas Registered Plumber/electrician should be used for the installation.

Thank you. I really don't know if that's the case though I think it isn't. But probably it's better to just get a gas registered electrician anyway
