As you have probably already read i am installing a combi in place of my ageing Worcester boiler (15 years old at least) and a Main medway water heater (age unknown)

I know its only guesswork but what savings can i expect when the new boiler is up and running?

Not sure of facts and figures, but you should notice a saving in your gas bills. With having a water heater and a boiler you would have been burning 2 pilots 24/7, so there should be abit of a saving there I know it wont be huge.

As for the new boiler, using a high effiency condensing boiler with the correct heating controls could save you up to £200 per year.
