Good afternoon, everyone

I am looking to change my gas boiler as the current one is on its last legs and am looking for recommendations. My boiler-servicing company have told me that they can no longer get replacement parts for it - and it has had quite a few in the 10+ years I have had it. I live in a parkhome (posh name for a mobile home) it has 2 bedrooms, one bathroom and 7 radiators (5 of them doubles), am on mains gas and shower works off boiler.

What would any of you suggest as replacement? Can I still have a combi boiler or are condensing boilers compulsory for the general public?

Thanks for your advice.

All Combi boilers have been condensing types for quite a long time now.
There should be no problem that I can think of in replacing your current Combi with a new CombI. :thumbright:
If you do a search of the forums you will find Intergas comes highly recommend. :-)
BTW, do you know your current boiler make/model.

I am currently fitting Intergas boilers.

If I was your installer I would price for an eco rf24 or eco rf30 depending on your cold mains flow and hot water requirements.

Good morning,

My boiler is a Chaffoteaux & Maury MX2 24FF, I have 7 radiators (5 of them doubles) and my shower is run off the boiler. My water pressure allows me to fill a 1 litre container in 5 seconds, from the cold tap.

I did post a comment about this same boiler, on this Forum, on Wednesday, 17 February, 2016. The fault reported then still exists to this day. Too many CH engineers to count have attended and failed to resolve the problem.

Are intergas boilers readily available to local CH companies/fitters? I live in Barrow-in-Furness.

Thanks, again, for any assistance and help.

In that case the Eco rf24 would suffice.

Yes they are available to any gas safe registered installer.

Razor, on here, may even know a good one near you.
