Hi all.

Looking for a recommended installer in the Manchester area, is there any on the forum?

Or shall I default the Intergas website?

Anyone know if the next gen model range is going to be released soon?


Regards,

Mani.

No one knows more about Intergas than he :thumbright:

Watching with interest! Currently got a 15 year old Baxi combi which will give way to an ECO RF before long. :thumbleft:
Any info on the next gen model?
Thanks, Pat

I will have a word with the local guy in Manchester to see who he would recommend :salute:

The next boiler to be released is the Extreme and it's awesome which is amazing considering the ECO RF is currently the best all round boiler you can buy IMO.

It is a significant upgrade but I wouldn't expect them to be on general sale in the UK until around May next year. If you can wait until then great but if you can't a properly setup ECO should last you 20 years :thumbright:

And up until a few years ago I would never have recommended you replace it until it dies WO :wink:

Gas prices have risen so much that depending on the size of your bill it may be worth upgrading to a more efficient setup. A modern boiler and controls would save between 40 and 60% of you gas bill.

If you only pay £40 a month it's not worth it but if you was at the place in Hampstead I was working at this morning where the gas bill has gone down to 2K a quarter from the original 5K it would quickly make sense!!

Yes the gas bill was 20K a year :shock: :shock: :shock: Uncovered pool and a very big house - how the other half live!!

I've got an unheated fish pond. Does that count ?

Yes - let me know of any recommended installers.

I doubt I would wait that long for the new model - I gather there would be a premium cost to this too. I think the Eco Rf is fine for what I need as I'm trying to update the heating system from the existing back boiler. My plan is to get the Nest V3 as it's Opentherm and should work well with the Eco Rf Opentherm setup via latest firmware? For the Nest I'm assuming I won't need the bit which connects to the boiler as it's Rf ready?

There's Atags next gen IC economiser - kind of elusive though, how robust are these units?

Cheers for the replies :thumbright:

With the Nest the bot that connects to the boiler is the Heatlink this IS half of the nest system along with thte thermostat so it's never optional. The boiler does have RF functionality but that's for use with Honeywell stats and our own products, you'll need two wires to connect the Heatlink to the OT terminals in the boiler.

What's the plan are you going to use it as a combi or are you keeping the existing cylinder? If so you need to make sure the controls are up to date and the hot water isn't on gravity

Thanks for the info on the Nest setup, I'll bear that in mind.

I'm planning on just a regular combi setup. As for the rest of the old system - that has to go as the tank is a gravity setup along with Baxi backboiler. There will be a big hole in the chimney, but I have a Burley woodburner to occupy that.
