Replacement CH & HW boiler

Postby James Macdonald » Tue Mar 10, 2009 4:36 pm

I am replacing a very old Potterton boiler which was under the work top in the kitchen and vented to an outside wall. The CH Engineers tell me that modern boilers cannot fit in this space and are suggesting that it must be installed somewhere else which happens to be very unsightly and inconvenient and expensive.

Are they right?
