I have a 1960s mid terrace and back boiler thats almost as old as me on its last legs, so I have had a quote to upgrade to a combi.
The quote seems fine at £2500 including VAT but I have been told the only place this combi can go in my property is in the spare bedroom.
I don't use this bedroom at the mo but hope to get a lodger in there but my questions are whether anyone has any experience of a boiler in the bedroom. Has anyone had any problems (ie noise)? And would it put you off when I finally come to sell and have viewers?
Also are they easy to hide away when in a bedroom?
I've personally lived in a bedroom which had quite an old fashioned boiler in it. I never had any problems with noise, but I've always been quite a deep sleeper. Also, as the boiler was quite old, it gave out quite a lot of heat - not great for energy efficiency but it kept my room warm all through the winter.
I think any modern boiler would be fine, as long as it's not being used heavily overnight.
