We want to get the boiler replaced before it conks out on us but I’m unsure about options to go for. We currently have a standard boiler, 30 years old, inefficient and ugly up the corner of the kitchen. Hubby wants a combi though we’re on oil rather than gas and they’re very expensive, I’ve been told potentially a combi could put pressure on the current pipe work and could cause a burst which I don’t want. I’m thinking just replace like for like, I want to swap the electric shower for a ‘normal’ one (whatever they’re called where it’s like turning the taps on) we’ve got brilliant water pressure And am I right I’m thinking we wouldn’t need an additional pump other than the one being replaced with the boiler? Shower is downstairs and hot water tank is on the first floor. I’d like to keep the tank in case we ever had a boiler issue so at least we could heat water up, particularly with removing the electric shower option. Failing that is ther such a thing as an electric ‘power’ shower, I want to feel like I’m under a waterfall! We’ve had a couple of quotes and looked at loads of options but I’m not fully understanding exactly what it is we’ll be getting. Thanks guys and girls!
