Electric Combi Boiler - Newbie Question

Postby wj » Thu May 24, 2007 3:53 pm

My first post - I have a new building next to my home and I want to separate heating system, but it seems British Gas need to run a new gas pipe from the main road, instead of using the feed from main house (some 400 feet away).

I am therefore looking at a Electric Combi Boiler instead, it needs to service hot and cold taps also a decent shower and a warm water underfloor heating system, the area is 5.4m X 5.2m plus a normal sized ensuite.

Can someone advise me of the following :
1) Are they cost efficent or expensive (as in mega expensive?)
2) What are the negative points and positive points for that matter ?
3) I know little about brands, what is the better end of the market and any brands to stay clear of.
4) Any other remarks that you may think are helpful.

Thanks for your help.
