We have a gas fired back boiler which needs replacing, this provides hot water(backed up with an (immersion heater) and rads to the first floor. We live in med size 3 bed semi.
I propose to remove the back boiler to the lounge and position a new boiler which would be flued into the same chimney flue from the kitchen/dining room.
My query is, "if I fit rads to the grouund floor and connect them to the flow and return pipes serving the existing first floor rads would this work"?.
The pump sits next to the hot water cylinder in a cupboard on the first floor. There are a pair of pipes coming from the upstair radiator flow and return which come through the dinning room ceiling from the first floor, they terminate in drain valves.
Perhaps these could be utilised for a ground floor circuit?
All work would be checked and commisioned by a corgi guy on completion I just want to get a feel for what is possible. Budget is very tight.
