Cheapest regarding install - will be a combi as you may be able to keep your existing radiators and pipework. Wood burning stove, you're going to need a new cylinder etc

I have been informed that I may eventually have to replace the whole system cause of problems a pressure change would cause and would likely not have the same problems if converted to a wood burner?!
Do you know what firefronts are compatible with a baxi 552 boiler?! I am only thinking of changing cause the fire was broken and have tipped it.. May need a bit of time to save up as the conversion whichever one I eventually choose is going to be costly :( ..

I had this query recently and couldn't find a new replacement firefront, if you could still buy them they'd be £400+. You may find a second hand one if you shop about.
