I have regularly used push fit connectors on cold water plumbing jobs and now need to move some central heating piping. Am I ok to use copper push fit connectors for this, as my soldering skills are minimal.
If you don't fancy using compression fittings, it is ok to use copper pushfit with heating, or even normal Speedfit couplings. If you don't want to solder, why not use all plastic? It's pretty good these days. Just don't use near the boiler (for regulations) or in sight up to a radiator for example (it looks cheap DIY).
Soldered fittings everytime for me and most heating engineers I know. It's a permanent job, neat, never fails if cleaned and sweated properly and looks more professional (in my opinion, have said that before and upset a few people on here) - it's the only option of jointing pipes on alot of gas pipework - if you're soldering one pipe - you'd might as well do all - just as quick as any other method of jointing.
Most plumbers (bathroom and kitchen fitters) I know - use compresssion or pushfit.
In my house every fitting is soldered apart from obviously - final connections to boiler/taps/rad valves etc.
