We had noticed that the water would not heat up if the central heating was turned on at the same time.
Before Christmas, British Gas kindly provided us with an estimate for a new boiler but the price truly felt way beyond being acceptable. Anyway, we met A D Plumbing and heating at BNI. He is currently offering to fit a new combi boiler from £1999 so we asked him to quote us a price for replacing our boiler.
He advised that our boiler is not energy efficient, but not in need of being replaced. He charged £150 for repairing the faulty valve.
He has promised a discount to everyone who purchases his services and mentions us. So now you can afford to deal with those niggling plumbing issues.
