Combi sealed system
I recently had Lui refurbish my Bathroom and En-suit. Just before he was due to start work, my conventional Heating and hot water system gave up. Although fixed, I requested a quote from British Gas for a combi system.
The Surveyor came part way through the bathroom refurbishment. The suggestion was that the combi boiler should be placed in the same position as the old one. This presented quite a few problems in pipe work and flue.
Lui took the opportunity to provide a quote. He explained the benefits of the sealed system, ie cut cost, due to efficiency and hot water as and when needed. He carried out his survey, checking levels for the gas and water pipe runs, flue and drains. He suggested that as the copper cylinder would be removed, the 1st floor airing cupboard would be the best site. The problem was timing. I accepted the quote, expecting some time before the new installation. Lui had other ideas. He brought his son in to carry on with the En-suit refurbishment, and Lui started to installation, in preparation of the finish of the bathroom. The installation took 2 days. The only inconvenience was no water for the1st working day, no hot water for 2 working days. The whole operation was quickly and efficiently carried out, with all the safety checks done, system flushed and working a treat.
Because of the change from conventional to combi system, Lui changed the shower digital control boxes for ones compatible for the new sealed system and their position. Saving money for the bathroom work.
I am truly delighted with the installation and have benefitted from having an efficient modern system, constant temperature showers, additional space in the utility room and hopefully cheaper energy bills, confirmed by the newly installed smart meters. I will know more when the temperature drops, as with the warm weather my central heating has not come on, set a 20 degrees C.
The advice Lui gave was spot on for myself and the running of the house. Truly recommended for this installation and advice given.
