We had ours done about 18 months ago to replace the old back boiler system. Our combi is a Potterton Pro Max, which is a fair boiler I believe. We had our radiators replaced (6 all double) and all new pipework because of the size that was needed to facilitate the system. We paid 2,000 but my neighbour did it and he is a central heating plumber. I seriously reckon it has nearly already paid for itself. Instant hot water and bills a hell of a lot cheaper. I still pay the same amount for dual fuel as I paid 2 years ago, except I now get rebates of nearly a grand or so annually :banging :banging

Worcester boilers, or if on a budget Glowworm. Definitely avoid the Italian makes.

Can you slide one out the back door and post us one too? We've STILL not managed to scrape the cash together to get ours sorted.
Another reason I've not been anywhere recently...
