Replacing parkray room heater

Postby wimiu012uk » Fri Dec 12, 2008 7:18 am

I currently use a parkray roomheater solid fuel back boiler to run my central heating, running 10 radiators.
I am thinking of changing to a gas boiler.
What is the best option, a gas back boiler in the existing position in the living room or a condensor boiler in the loft ?
Anyone got any ideas

Simply Build It

IMO the best choice out of only your 2 is the loft.
However, for that you need a purpose made loft ladder and hatch,a permanent light in there, floorboarding at least to the boiler and handrailing.
That leaves you the fire place to have a nice gas fire rather than the carp they put on the front of BBUs
