Advice Needed on What to do About Getting a new Boiler

Postby prmmm » Tue Oct 15, 2019 11:12 am

Hello - I hope someone can help as I'm not a plumber but need some advice.

I've just bought a 1930's semi detached house with one bathroom. It has a boiler (Not a combi) in the kitchen and a hot water tank in the current bathroom. I'm ripping out and putting a new bathroom in. I want to move the hot water tank so the bathroom is bigger.
I have two options:
1. move the hot water tank into a spare bedroom and continue with current setup
2. get a new boiler
First of all, does anyone have any guidance on what I should do with the above otpions?

Secondly, which is where I'm really stuck, I'm getting different advice from different plumbers in terms of what boiler to go for if I get a new one. Do I get a combi? Which Combi? Do I put it in the loft? Will a combi give me enough water pressure? Am I just being sold a combi because they're expensive? Would I be better getting a megaflow (whatever that is) or a different type of Non combi boiler?

Im totally confused and would really appreciate some laymans terms advice. Ultimately, we have one bathroom, will be putting in a new toilet downstairs and might convert the loft one day. We just want enough water pressure for a decent shower.

Thanks in advance
