Trying to contact Corgigasman as we need a boiler servicing.

My problem is his telephone is disconnected and I have had no reply from pm on forum, as he fitted the boiler and serviced it last year I was hoping he would do the same again.

He may have changed his number or even moved who knows, but it would be good if anyone has an up-to-date number they could send me.

 

 

Have you tried emailing him?

What's the going rate for a new combi bolier install? The current 20yr old baxi boiler is located in the garage, we have an immersion tank in an up-stairs airing cuboard (which we never use) and a water tank in the loft. It's a 4 bedroom house with 12 radiators. We'd want the immersion tank removing

 

Hi you need a full quote and visit to your home to narrow the price down, you could be looking at anything in costs depending on who you use for the new installation.

All i will say is Ideal Logic plus top end equipment proven by its record so far.

Cheers Jon at JB Heating Services.

Steve is still around. He is working on a large contract at the moment and the terms prevent him from working on domestic.

Is the motor opening the zone valve when the room stat is turned up?

 

 

i gave the programmer an overhaul, cleaning and adjusting all the contact points with isopropyl alcohol. no change. then i dismantled and tested the thermostat. still no change. then tried moving the lever on the two port valve over with the heating switched on. this resulted in the pump momentarily trying to start. when i took the motor off the valve i discovered it was open circuit. i got a new synchro motor from screwfix for 12 quid. fitted this and bingo! everything back to normal. result - one very happy wife!

still, she will be even happier when we get a new system installed. we were down for one at the beginning of the year but then discovered that the government funding had been pulled and the scheme scrapped. i have heard there is a new scheme for homeowners where you pay for the system through your energy bills. the idea being that the energy savings on a new system will pay for the cost of it.

anyone had experience of this happening?

we qualified for the old scheme, i cant remember what it was called. we were borderline on income grounds but dont get benefits, and on health grounds but we are not disabled. the rules are slightly different as we have a mortgage. we would like our old baxi solo swapping for a combi so we can just turn on a tap and get hot water instead of boiling the tank and some of it going cold if not used. i have recently had thoughs of getting a log burner for the house as i understand people with these are saving a fortune on their fuel bills. is there one with a back boiler that can do central heating and produce hot water? and how would this run alongside a combi boiler when the log fire is not needed in the summer? more info please.

I have a combi boiler system and find the rads need bleeding quite frequently.

 

Should I do this with the system turned on or off? I have read contradictory bits of advice online!

 

Thanks

Aren't you supposed to do it when the boiler has been off for a little while?

 

Either way you shouldn't need to regularly bleed the radiators, it might indicate that you have a leak??

Thanks to above posters.

Does the system need to cool before I can do it, or is just turning it off sufficient?
