Hi all, I'm just buying an ex-council flat that has hot-air heating via a Creda Comfortaire electric heater. It's not working so I'd like to remove it.
However, it is housed in a cupboard where the door appears to be lined with asbestos. This can easily be removed and safely disposed of, but a friend mentioned that the heater itself may have asbestos inside. Does anyone know whether this is true, and if so, what type of asbestos (so I can get it safely removed).
Many, many thanks in anticipation. :roll:
Hi, thanks for your reply. I was hoping that someone out there may have experience of this type of heater and save me the expense of having the tests - these run into hundreds of pounds round here...!!
Can anyone help please?
I have tried but no success so far... But I agree this is the best route so will try and try again until I get a response!
Thanks for your help but if anyone else out there has come across this heating unit I would be pleased for any info..
All the best
Have you disposed of your Comfortaire yet? Did it have any more asbestos within it. How much did it cost to dispose of? I only ask because I am now in exactly the same position to yourself. Just bought a house with this system and am thinking of disposing of it. Alternative is to adapt it by replacing the electric element with a heating loop from a planned wood stove powered thermal store -thus minimising electric bills yet heat the entire house.
Anyway let me know how your Creda Comfortaire story panned out if you would. Many thanks.
