We have a back boiler with a god awful fire on it :( does anyone know please if the fire can be disconnected and the controls left on the bottom and be boxed in with access still to them or can a newer moderner fire place be put in its place???
Thanks for that :o) not sure if i'm looking in the right place but coming out of the wall next to the boiler between 2 pipes is a red connection which says on it Groundfos selectric 988123, not sure thats it tho?? if not how can i find out because the boiler is obviously hidden behind the fireplace? i can tell you tho that the fire on it is a Glow-worm Capricorn 246N if that helps at all?? many thanks.
The house was built in the early 80's and as far as we know its the original boiler, everything works fine but we never use the fire its just an eye sore for the whole room and to be honest i don't trust it, i know you can get them serviced and checked out but it just looks like one of them fires if you know what i mean so i won't use it and whilst everything is working fine i don't see the point in spending 2 grand on a combi thats all, i had thought about building like a radiator cover for it with plenty of ventilation for it if i couldn't replace the fire???
